Most of the main characters have been portrayed well but its very clear cut when it comes to the protagonist
Randeep and Rashmi = good. no shades of gray
Shahana - she is a mixed bag, but I like her character. Not sure what to expect from her and she is not predictable...yet
Granted, I'm a week behind. But see that's where I veer off a bit. Shahana is undoubtedly a protagonist in this story, but she's negative--though with an attempt to give her shades of grey. I don't dislike her. I like her character. However, in the end the difference between her and Jidda is just that she traps many victims with honey, and is nice otherwise to people she has no reason to be against. However, so what? Jidda kills mercilessly and is probably a bit psychotic. But really, is Shahana any better?
She wasn't in the dark about Malik while he was alive. In fact she knew all of his plans. And the plans were still to carry out terrorist attacks. His and her orders that Suchi should be well treated while in captivity--so what? It's humane, sure but in the plan is still to kill off Shantanu and Suchi (as Shahana herself said). If anything the sadistic streak is not there as it is with Jidda. Plus, treating Suchi well is advantageous as it would yield better results form Shantanu.
