New Delhi: Amazon Prime Videos’ Paatal Lok has begun streaming from May 15 on the platform. Produced by Anushka Sharma’s banner Clean Slate Films, the web series marks the Bollywood actor’s entry into the digital space.
The cast features Jaideep Ahlawat, Abhishek Banerjee, Neeraj Kabi, Gul Panag, Ishwak Singh, Swastika Mukherjee, Rajesh Sharma and ensemble.
Set in Delhi, Paatal Lok is based on the mythological tale of the three Loks, Paatal Lok, Dharti Lok and Swarg Lok. The story begins at the point where the three intercepts and an entangled mystery is born. Four hired murderers are arrested by the police and the investigation begins.
The divide between the haves and the have-nots is visible in every corner.
Paatal Lok, which includes the have-nots majorly, is where four accused (Abhishek Banerjee, Aasif Khan, Jagjeet Sandhu and Mariembam Ronaldo Singh) come from.
These stories would inevitably involve carjackings and robbery at gunpoint. Sometimes, even kidnapping. But the ‘Outer Jamuna Paar’ police station is where Hathi Ram Chaudhary has been posted. And that is where our story begins.
Paatal Lok is created by her NH10 writer Sudip Sharma, co-directed by Avinash Arun and Prosit Roy (Pari), with NH10 director Navdeep Singh credited as ‘script consultant’.
