Pataal Lok Review

When talking about narration and themes, Paatal Lok is no doubt an ambitious show.

It is an intense exploration of Indian immorality, and might seem like a conventional underworld saga. Amazon Prime’s new show is a celebration of our ingenuity.

The series narrates a story in which Evil battles Greater Evil with slim chances of victory. Paatal Lok lands somewhere between Delhi Crime and Mirzapur and apart from all the back and fronts Avinash Arun Dhaware (Killa) and Prosit Roy’s directorial never loses momentum.

Jaideep Ahlawat’s role is the performance of a lifetime. He plots the role of Inspector Hathi Ram as one of the most memorable characters in the web series. The only painful thing is the miscasting of Gul Panag in the thankless role of Hathi Ram’s wife. Neeraj Kabi opts as always for pitch-perfect modulation.

Swastika Mukherjee is absolutely terrific. The supporting cast  notably Ishwak Singh, Vipin Sharma, Niharika Lyra Dutt and, not the least, Abhishek Banerjee no doubt did well.
