The much-awaited Amazon Prime series of 2020, Paatal Lok, is set to create a visual retreat for fans on 15 May 2020. A three-minute trailer was released on 5 May on YouTube by Prime Video India, which was an instant hit with more than 2 million views. Everyone is waiting eagerly for the web show as it was revealed that it is shot in 110 different locations.
Also, Actress Anushka Sharma is one of the executive producers, and this has come as a surprise. The story of Paatal Lok revolves around Inspector Hathi Ram Chaudhary (Jaideep Ahlawat), who is the protagonist. He is on a mission to chase the four serial killers Kabir M. (Aasif Khan), Vishal “Hathoda” Tyagi (Abhishek Banerjee), Tope “Chaaku” Singh (Jagjeet Sandhu) and Mary “Cheeni” Lyngdoh (Mairembam Ronaldo Singh). These serial killers are accused of a failed assassination attempt targeting senior journalist Sanjeev Mehra (Neeraj Kabi).
How is the trailer of Paatal Lok?
Gul Panag also stars in the show. She is playing the wife of the Inspector Hathi Ram Chaudhary. The trailer mixes up the mythology with the present world in the opening remark. It explains the concept of Swarg (heaven), Dharti (earth), and Pataal Lok (Hell). All four suspected killers are arrested and tortured in police custody.
However, the twist comes when the case is transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and the protagonist takes it as an offense on his honor. He dedicates himself to find out the truth under the hood. Hathi Ram Chaudhary tries to prove his worth to his children and society by doing this. The trailer ends with the words: “Every once in a while, the insects from the nether world bite those on Earth, and when that happens, it leads to a scandal.”
Anushka Sharma also recently shared the trailer of Pataal Lok on Twitter and captioned her post: “This is the nether world. The white lies and black truth here are hard to distinguish.”
