Right from the time the show was announced, its eccentric title caught the attention of many. ‘Killer Soup? What could it be?’ Well, as we soon find out in this show, it’s a deadly combination of ambition, greed and immoral values. 

Killer Soup tells the story of Umesh and Swathi. Swathi is married to Prabhakar, the brother of Arvind. Prabhakar has a business of his own but he does not have the money to support his new venture. He relies on his brother Arvind to give monetary help. Swathi is ambitious of learning to cook and setting up her own restaurant some day. She does not leave a chance to remind her husband of the same.

Swathi has an affair with Umesh, who happens to be Prabhakar’s lookalike. But throughout the series we see Umesh rejecting the idea, for accepting it would mean he is just a lookalike and nobody important. Swathi’s ambition and greed goes into an overdrive.

One day, when Prabhakar catches Swathi and Umesh, he is killed by the couple. The couple disposes the body and Swathi immediately becomes the puppeteer and things go her way. The police are hot on her heels but luck is on her side for most of the time, until the very end when her karma finally gets to her. She dies in the same fashion as Thupalli, for she was instrumental in killing an innocent soul.

With Arvind’s daughter and Swathi’s son. we see a slight branch off to a forbidden and complicated romance. While that angle was only touched upon and not explored further, it did help in highlighting the complexities within the Shetty clan. With Killer Soup, the makers played nicely with the cinematic storytelling. With Thupalli’s character coming up as a ghost, one is reminding of the ghost that haunt Hamlet and questions him on his every move.

Konkona Sen Sharma and Manoj Bajpayee deliver stellar performances in this dark comedy thriller series. When you have actors of this calibre, one can easily expect the story to hold good mirth of entertainment, intellect and performance. The story runs tight until the very end. Most of us might have expected the end, where the characters lose their lives, but some might even be wishing for the characters to start new chaos in a new place.
