The Voot original series Asur: Welcome To Your Dark Side has created a buzz since its release in 2020. With this show, the audience goes on a roller-coaster ride of suspense, revelation, and tragedy. The intricate plot weaves together the past and the present. It culminates in a shocking climax that leaves viewers on the edge of their seats.
The story revolves around Nikhil Nair, portrayed by Barun Sobti, who is a former CBI forensic officer. Now, he is an FBI instructor but is discontent with his teaching role. He yearns to be back in the field. The narrative takes a chilling turn when Nikhil is drawn into a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer who sends him the coordinates of the victims. Alongside him is his former mentor, senior forensic expert Dhananjay Rajput (DJ), played by Arshad Warsi.
The ending unravels a decade-old vendetta harbored by Shubh, whose thirst for revenge is rooted in DJ’s actions. Ten years prior, DJ had Shubh arrested for the alleged murder of his father. DJ used fabricated evidence and a falsified birth certificate to ensure Shubh’s incarceration as an adult. Despite Nikhil’s protests, DJ remains resolute, leading to strained relationships within the CBI.
Who is the real Shubh?
In the present day, Nikhil finds himself in a perilous situation, captured by the enigmatic Shubh. To save his mentor, DJ, Nikhil devises a risky plan. He manipulates Shubh into a scenario where he would unwittingly enter jail. Using his ingenuity, Nikhil escapes captivity, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats.
As the plot unfolds, the torture of innocent victims continues in the background. This adds a layer of suspense to the story. Meanwhile, suspicion arises within the CBI, with Lolark becoming wary of Rasool, a hacker helping in tracking the killer. However, in a major turn of events, Rasool is revealed to be the real Shubh. This revelation shows the depth of deception within the story.
The final game planned by Shubh includes a life-and-death decision for both DJ and Nikhil. DJ, who thinks Kesar to be Shubh, has to take three pills. Each pill will reveal critical information about the victims’ location. The stakes are high, and the tension increases as DJ takes the pills one by one, ultimately outsmarting Shubh with the help of Nusrat, his subordinate, who calls an ambulance in advance.

The aftermath is marked by tragedy, with Nikhil’s wife leaving him due to the heart-wrenching decision. DJ attempts to console Nikhil, but the latter places the blame squarely on DJ for the chain of events set in motion ten years ago. The real Shubh intervenes, revealing his identity to Nikhil and setting the stage for an unfinished battle.
The final scene leaves viewers with an unsettling gaze from DJ directed at the real Shubh, hinting at suspicion and the potential continuation of the gripping saga.
