An Amazon Prime original series, produced by Anushka Sharma and Karnesh Sharma is a crime thriller that has gained massive popularity for all the right reasons. As the name suggests, Paatal Lok is a fabulous thriller where every character has done a commendable job, supported by a good direction and script.

Taking a look towards the story and direction, the series has been shot in different cities and locations. Every scene has been made with a perception of keeping it close to the reality as much as possible whether it is the lock-up scenes, jail scenes, or the daily life struggle of an outer Jamuna par cop who is constantly working hard to solve a major case in the hopes of getting promoted. The series revolves around four people who are being charged for a high profile murder conspiracy and Hathiram Chaudhary discovering new facts and leads to solve this case with the help of Imran Ansari.

The end of the series leaves you with a thought of how things work in this nation, but at the same time gives you self assumptions of how things should have been ended and taken place. In the last episode, there is a short conversation between two cops about the system that puts you in deep thoughts.

The series also has the right amount of suspense which shows the brilliance in writing as every chapter closes on an eager note that makes the viewers watch it more.
