Amazon Prime Video just dropped the trailer for Paatal Lok, a grizzly crime thriller that resonates the idea of the ancient realms of Swarglok, Dhartilok and Paatallok aka Heaven, Earth and Underworld. It echoes Mirzapur and Sacred Games, and seems just as promising.
Framed for as assassination attempt, a group of 4 is arrested and the case is taken over by Inspector Choudhary. Over the course the case becomes more complex and a brewing pot for murder, corruption, and dark, bloody happenings. There seems to be no distinction between the good and bad guys. The trailer was fast paced, gritty, well sequenced and had us on the edge of seats.
We rate it a 4/5
The show merges the ancient realms with the real world. It depicts the levels of hierarchy between the ‘powerful wealthy’, the people’ and the ‘low-lifes’
“Aur sabse neeche hai Paatal Lok, jahaan Keedein rehte hain”
Tope Singh, Kabir M, Mary Lyngdoh and Vishal Tyagi are arrested for conspiracy to murder famous journalist Sanjeev Mehra. Their case is investigated by Inspector Choudhray. However, as more details come to light, the case becomes more confusing, convoluted and crazy. It reeks of corruption and secrecy. Evidence gets tampered with, people are killed and frightening and no one is who they claim to be. Inspector Choudhary soon gets suspended, but begins his own investigation that leads to shocking discoveries, but at the cost of his personal life.
The trailer gives a great glimpse of what Paatal Lok has to offer, and safe to say, the offerings will be great. The cast is phenomenal with Jaideep Ahlawat as Inspector Chaudhary, Neeraj Kabi as Sanjeev Mehra, and Abishek Banerjee as Vishal Tyagi, who gave us chills in the trailer. Gul Panag, Aditya Srivastava and Swastika Mukherjee also feature impactfully.
Writer Sudip Sharma, known for Udta Punjab and Sonichiriya has stuck to his roots with a grim, fast-paced story line, bloody suspense, nefarious elements, hard-hitting one liners and a cuss word every 20 seconds. If you’re a fan of neo-noir Indian crime stories, this one is right up your dark, abuse filled alley.
Paatal Lok, produced by Anushka Sharma’s Clean Slate Films and directed by Avinash Arun & Prosit Roy drops on May 15th, exclusively on Amazon PrimeVideo
