The story is made at the backdrop of Delhi and revolves around a cop called Hathiram Chaudhary played by Jaideep Ahlawat. He lives with his own ideology dividing the world into three worlds – the Swarg lok where the rich and affluent people dwell, the second is Dharti Lok where people like him live and the third is Patal Lok where the insects and similar creatures live. He calls his police station located in the third category in Delhi close to Yamuna bank. Soon he nabs four criminals who are the alleged killers of a famous journalist of a low TRP based news channel. He faces too many challenges while dealing with this case, so how he defies the case is interesting to catch in the show.
While checking the web series, one could make out that all the major incidents covered in it are somewhere inspired by the real time incidents taking place in the National Capital and other places close to it. The web series comprises a stellar star cast giving some of the best performances on the screen. It starts with Jaideep Ahlawat who is seen dominating the series in every other frame. He is aptly able to showcase the frustration and futility of his uniform on his face the best. He proved with his role that being a cog in a system is not a cost that everyone can pay.
The others too have done a decent performance including the actors Neeraj Kabi, Abhishek Banerjee and Gul Panag playing different roles. While the other elements like story and screenplay are well written. The sequences are shot incredibly well, while some may need a trigger warning, which the makers have missed. Nevertheless, the overall picture seemed good for the web series and it could be a good watch amid the lockdown.
Paatal Lok therefore leaves you asking for more. Hence the audience would soon demand for the second season. All thanks to the makers who did a wonderful job in making the series so effective. To keep us entertained in this tough time, the makers have given their best in this web series for sure.
