Your Honor season 2 review: Forget Jimmy Shergill, watch it for Mahie Gill-Mita Vashisht's moments together

One is a ruthless gangster and the other is a badass police officer. With that, Mahie Gill and Mita Vashisht's passion and clash comes alive in their scenes together in the recently released SonyLIV web series, Your Honor season 2.

Your Honor S2 - Mita Vashisht, Mahie Gill.

Story:

A judge's son commits a huge crime. He kills an underworld don's son accidentally and runs away from the crime scene. Till how long can the judge, who decides people's fates, protect his son? To what extent? Your Honor explores the same.

Review:

While Sony LIV's Your Honor Season 1 has often adopted the Israeli series Kvodo's work, that doesn't seem to be the case with season 2. Jimmy Shergill, like always in the series, leaves a powerful impression. Gulshan Grover has a very weird introduction to the show. Mahie Gill is introduced in an equally weird manner.

The show begins on a slow note, even though it has some interesting moments. Zeishan Qadri makes an appearance and leaves a good impression.

Very few moments from Kvodo are present in the second season of Your Honor. However, we do not get to see the son Abeer, played by Pulkit Makol till very late. The character's life in prison is constantly in news in Kvodo. The story, however, binds well in Your Honor as compared to Kvodo.

Varun Badola also makes a comeback. He tries to leave an impact but does so very little. Jimmy's equation with 'Ruma' Parul Gulati is one of the focuses of the series unlike the Kvodo season 2.

Moments from the first episode of Kvodo is played in the third episode of Your Honor. The same works in the favour of the Hindi series because it goes with a flow rather than a new story episode-wise.

The women in Your Honor constantly make deals for their benefit. Seeing the power-packed roles they have, these ladies deserve it too. While we saw Suhasini Mulay in that kind of action in season 1, Mita Vashisht as Kiran Sekho takes centre stage in season 2.

Mahie and Mita's face-off scene is brilliantly shown. The fact that they are somehow connected in the series, makes Your Honor a more interesting watch than Kvodo.

Mahie's wardrobe is the first thing you notice about her considering her business. However, this costume party is not something to look forward to. She gives no fashion inspiration and is in fact quite the contrary. Seeing her costume, you would rather walk in a night-suit and look better than her.

Suhasini's character still manages to get to your nerves. On the other hand, Pulkit's Abeer grows into someone new and whom you don't recognise in the new season.

The season shows the story of every lead character for one last time. Gulshan Grover ends up saying what the popular meme says - "This is business." However, the scene creates a mediocre impact.

Verdict:

Although not as much as the first season, Your Honor is still pretty close to the story Kvodo went on to tell. This is usually not observed in Your Honor US either. In fact, the Jimmy Shergill-headed show works around the story in a more crisp and continuous manner than the original show, making it a good watch.

However, the one thing it lacks in is the intense expressions people in Kvodo pulled off. The Indian version of Your Honor focuses on the emotions over the practical aspects and even when they wish to show aggression, they do so with the use of abusive language, which has been beautifully avoided in Kvodo. There, harsher words and actions do the deed. Thus, both the series work in their own way, at their own places but with season 2, Your Honor has taken the lead over Kvodo.
