It is a great thriller web series with a great story. It is an Indian thriller web series and it is a perfect example of how great story brings magic in a thriller.

It starts with a crime branch officer who solves a completely unrelated multiple murder mystery of organ donors. It is interesting to see how these connect together which first seem to be totally disconnected. Later when the murderer is found out, a brutal truth comes out and the officer gets into a dilemma of what to do.

It is a very sensitive story and it will completely blow your mind. It will tell you that when it comes to web series, Indian web series stand side by side to international ones. If you are willing to watch something different, you must watch this thriller. We hope that other Film Industries of India make same kind of web series.

I recently watched this web series and I must say this is one of my favourite thriller web series till now. This thriller has raised the bar of web series. But the sad thing is this it is the most under-rated thriller of all.

The work done by actors, directors and cinematography is outstanding. It has been said always that goodness is the basic nature of people but this web series will make you rethink about this. The day I saw this web series for hours I was thinking about it. It will ask questions which will shiver your concepts.

It is a psychological thriller and we know the magic of psychological thrillers from movies like Shutter Island.

This is the thriller debut of Arshad Warsi and 'Iss Pyaar ko kya Naam dun' star Barun Sobti is also in this web series. Bith have played their part very well. We have seen Arshad Warsi in comedy roles mostly but he has done this serious role with perfection.

Lovers of thriller must watch this web series at least once. Even if you are not a lover of thriller, this web series will make you love it. The acting of child artist has put a different spirit in this web series.

The hard work which has been done by the full team of Asur reflects beautifully in this crime-thriller.

This show has tagline 'maasoom hai yaa sirf dikhta hai' means is he innocent or he just looks like this! The web series is as much interesting as seems from the tagline.

The story starts from a one-night stand of Aditya because of which he goes through various kinds of problems. Pankaj Tripathi has done fabulous acting as always. The web series never deviates from its path and it is a full thriller from beginning to end. 

This story revolves around Aditya is guilty or not and you will keep guessing till the end! However, if you have watched many thriller web series, then you will guess by the tagline itself that what is the ending of this web series.
