Rock-solid performances hold together Flesh, which has just enough bite to keep us invested, but is mired in gratuitous violence.
Flesh is a gritty, hard-hitting series, that revolves around the kidnapping and trafficking of young girls to be sold into the flesh trade. A sixteen year old girl Zoya (Mahima Makwana) is missing. Her father (Yudhisthir Urs) gets into touch with feisty police officer Radha (Swara Bhasker) to find and get back his daughter. As Radha digs deeper into the disappearance of the girl, she uncovers a sinister sex trafficking racket that is taking place right under the nose of the police. Her investigations lead her to Kolkata, where she gets face to face with the kingpin of the sex racket. A menacing man called Taj (Akshay Oberoi) is the person behind the picking up of young girls and selling them off to pimps for the purpose of the flesh trade. Radha confronts Taj in a no holds barred face-off. Will she be able to bust Taj’s flesh trade and return Zoya safely back to her parents? Or will she lose her life in the dare Devil operation? This is what forms the rest of the story.
