Anushka Sharma has produced a few films like NH10, Phillauri and Pari. She now enters the digital world as a producer with the web series Paatal Lok which stars Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi and Abhishek Banerjee in the lead roles.
The web series starts with Delhi police arresting four people who had a plan to kill a senior journalist, Sanjeev Mehra (Neeraj Kabi). Inspector Hathi Chand (Jaideep Ahlawat) is given the case for the investigation. The investigation moves forward and the series starts becoming an engaging watch.
Well, let us tell you that this web series is not for faint hearted people as it has scenes that would surely make you uncomfortable. There are 9 episodes and initially you might feel that the pace is quite slow. However, it picks up quite and becomes and engaging watch.
The series are raw and rustic feel to it and that might be a bit negative point here as we have seen a few series in past with the similar setting. But the different storyline and Avinash Arun and Prosit Roy’s narration make this one a good thriller.
Performance wise, Jaideep Ahlawat is damn good as the cop and impresses us. Neeraj Kabi as usual is amazing and Abhishek Banerjee is simply fantastic. Gul Panag and Swastika Mukherjee also leave a mark. Ishwak Singh is damn good in his role.
Overall, Paatal Lok is a gritty thriller that keeps you engaged throughout.
