From Inside-Edge to Breathe, Mirzapur to Family Man. Amazon Originals has come up with new, interesting, and terrifying web-series called Pataal Lok, and it is way different than the others mentioned above.
Sudeep Sharma had done a fantastic job by creating this web-series. The web-series directed by Avinash Arun and Prosit Roy and produced by Anushka Sharma and Kamesh Sharma. Actors in this web-series have done a Brilliant job. Jaideep Ahlawat who is a lead character in this series has done a tremendous job as a police Inspector. Neeraj Kabi has also done a fantastic job as a prime-time journalist
The story starts with the arrest of four people. Three men and a woman in case of an attempt to murder a prime-time journalist “Sanjeev Mehra” (Neeraj Kabi). During the arrest, one of the members threw a phone in the river. The case has been handover to the Inspector Hathi Ram Chowdhary (Jaideep Ahlawat). As the investigation starts, they interrogate the prisoners and found out the name of the prisoners.
Starting with Vishal Tyagi (Abhishekh Banerjee), Tope Singh (Jagjeet Sandhu), Kabir M (Asif Khan), and Mary Lyngdoh or Chini (Mairembam Ronaldo Singh). After checking their criminal record, police got to know that “Vishal Tyagi” is the most wanted man in “Chitrakoot” who has murdered more than 30 people and he is famous by a name “Hathoda Tyagi”. Most of the investigation leads to the “Chitrakoot”, a town in Madhya Pradesh. As the series continues, the plot becomes more intense with twists. One of the interesting twist is that Hathi Ram Chowdhary will get suspended from his duty (The same thing happened in the Netflix’s Sacred Games).
The series had shown how politics can become purely dirty about the Hindu-Muslim riots, poor people, and low-caste people. It had shown that there are some places where people discriminate against other people based on caste. The backstory of every prisoner has been clearly explained. It had also shown about the father-son relation between Hathi Ram Chowdhary and his son.
Sapien’s thought on Pataal Lok: I thought that there will be no season 2. But the season 2 will come with an interesting twist and plot. Go for it. Rating: 4/5
