The series has 8 episodes, each with a runtime of around 25 minutes.Murder by the Sea’s first episode is filled with exposition; to be honest, it is all exposition, and, like every other Hoichoi show, it also shows us the murder in the first episode itself, or, well, that someone dies. Of course, there are also a ton of suspects, much like every other Hoichoi show, and we try to break down who has the motive to carry on the murder to fruition.Murder by the Sea is a reminiscing of Murder in the Hills, another one of Anjan Dutta’s murder mystery thrillers. The way it starts, the way it introduces storylines and characters and then how it gets into the nitty-gritty of things is just extremely similar to the execution of the 2021 series. Considering how that one turned out, you’d wonder where this one is going from the first minute of its runtime.
For some strange reason, everyone in Murder by the Sea just takes out firearms in broad daylight and punches each other. I understand frustration and all that, but it’s so weird to see people just pull out a gun on Puri’s beach as we live in one of those Wild West movies. Sure, it’s probably normal when no one is looking, there’s a lot of crime out there, but it’s a bit much to assume that people are just doing this in the middle of the beach.Anyway, the series, much like its predecessor, is far too long. There’s too much going on yet too little. This dichotomous situation is what makes it interesting, but it also makes the pace rather sluggish. The series doesn’t show us nearly enough and spells everything out down to its last detail. I mean, mystery thrillers are interesting when the viewers break down the story with the protagonist, not when we are handled like little children!
