Helmed by Anushka Sharma, the trailer has been making a lot of buzz. With the ongoing lockdown, we are all on the lookout for new shows. So we thought, we would list down 5 reasons to watch Paatal Look.
Content available on the web is varied in its own sense and rightly so. As far as the Indian space is concerned, we have been experimenting with a lot of genres, and dark thriller seems to be one of them.
Paatal Lok is a web series being helmed by producer Anushka Sharma and has an ensemble cast to look out for. It takes us a little closer to the darker side of humanity and is definitely going to leave you thinking things through. Paatal Lok releases tonight on Prime Video.
Here are 5 reasons to watch Paatal Lok:
1. The ensemble cast
One look at the trailer and we don’t think you’d want reasons to watch Paatal Lok if you like the genre. Producer Anushka Sharma teased the fans with multiple teasers until the trailer hit the screens. And oh boy, were people raving about it. It features the likes of Abhishek Banerjee, Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi, and Gul Panag. Though there aren’t any big names, they are all actors with fine acting chops, enough to carry the show on their shoulders.
2. The growing interest in crime thriller genre
Like mentioned earlier, this is a genre that has found increasing interest, proving content on the web is not just about being bold. There is a lot more than just gory drama in this thriller and it promises to keep you on the edge until the very end. Crime and thriller as separate genres have always been interesting, but this combination makes it rather lethal.
3. Touches upon the darker side of humanity
We all have been one to promote things like nihilism among other things. With a show like this, there is more to why people believe in bigger and rather absurd things. The closing scene of the trailer left me with goosebumps and it sure was only a glimpse of what we think will unfold.
4. Based on present day
While there are so many things that is going on across the world, which makes us give you this as one of the reasons to watch Paatal Lok is more than just the genre. The trailer did show us what can we expect from this show and the modern day references are what make it relatable, even though nothing else is.
5. An acclaimed team
Anushka Sharma is known to bring meaningful yet out of the box content to the screens and with this one, she does the same. She is actually one of the primary reasons to watch Paatal Lok, because this one will see her don a different that and not that of an actor.
