Season 1- Overview

Before jumping into Samantha’s character evaluation, let’s overview the first season for a better understanding. The story revolves around a man Srikant, who works as a senior analyst in Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell. 

Throughout the first season, Srikant tries to stop a mission executed by a terrorist cell, which is referred to as “Zulfiqar.” Moreover, he even stopped the execution of the plan but later came to know that the terrorist had another backup plan ready with them. Therefore, the show ends on a cliffhanger where the terrorists start the process of their plan B, which is about carrying out a mass gas leak in the city. Amidst all this, the main character’s personal life nearly fell apart as he suspects that his wife is having an affair.
