With a poor story, loose execution, and bad dialogues, the so-called thriller web show fails miserably.

Dude Season 2 follows the life of a private detective, who works in a firm of private investigators and secretly investigates the cases for which he gets hired, while dealing with his own emotional baggage simultaneously.
Uttam, affectionately known as "Dude," appears even more emotionally drained this season. He has given up on finding his mom, who has been lost for over a decade now. However, the climax reveals otherwise. Meanwhile, the latest instalment focuses on only one case that involves a few petty young thieves.
When a pen drive that stores a secret password to a crypto account gets stolen, that's when these private investigators enter the picture. A big businessman who lost his precious device and later gets blackmailed on a random call hires Dude to investigate and get his valuable key back.
The show moves on with the script and you expect something unusual or new to happen in the story. However, it feels completely monotonous as it revolves around only one boring case. Even though the story tries to cut the monotony by focusing a part of the tale on Dude and his lost mother, the lazy writing seems to just drag the script somehow to the finish line.
Apart from the writer's badly written script, the director's execution also seems half-cooked because of the clumsy situations in most of the scenes.
Good actors like Apoorva Arora and Arun Kushwah look bad as performers due to badly written dialogues. Meanwhile, Ambrish Verma just seems to read out the lines off of the pages. All these actors have been seen in multiple OTT projects earlier and have entertained us as well. However, in Dude, they only appear to shock and disappoint. Social media influencer Amit Bhadana also doesn't fit into the role of a serious villain, as even his serious dialogues appear to be funny, which confuses the tone of the show.
Even the Shrimaan Shrimati-famous veteran actor Rakesh Bedi couldn't save this sinking ship, which was directed by Neel Jadhav and created by the lead actor (Ambrish) himself.
With a poor story, loose execution, and bad dialogues, the so-called thriller web show fails miserably. Dude is a perfect example of how the OTT platforms are being taken for granted with such flop content.
