In the fictional town of Rudrakhand (somewhere in the North of India), an elite school has numerous dark secrets hidden beneath its disciplined disguise. When a student is murdered and hanged in the woods, Officer Ratna Shankhawar (Richa) and Prof Jayant Parekh (Ronit) are up to investigate the matter. Even they have darker shades to them. Amid all this is a drug-induced candy being sold to the kids. How all these loose ends get connected to one criminal is the central plot.
What intrigues the most in Candy is the climax. By the seventh episode we have been guessing who the ‘Masaand’ actually is, and it is finally time that we get to know the story. Now my mind had guessed the end too. But the way it was executed and twisted made it exciting and thus I forgave the predictability in that part.
Candy deserves your attention. It is a show where the suspense is actually surprising and not just for the sake of it. Go in and enjoy the thrills.
