Paatal Lok is a neo-noir web series that will premier on Amazon Prime Video on 15 May 2020. It is produced by Clean Slate Films which is Anushka Sharma’s banner. It is a police-based crime thriller written by Sudip Sharma and follows a washed out cop in his venture into a twisted case surrounding the attempt of an assassination of a prime time journalist.
One of the main reasons that the creators set up the plot in Delhi was that it’s the apex of the Indian political scene and where the power centres lie. Sudip said that 70% per cent of Paatal Lok had been shot at actual locations in Delhi, Gurgaon, and Rohtak.
The makers of the show give us a glimpse into what their idea behind the creation of the show was as they said that they wanted to explore different cultures, perspectives, and tales from various regions, as well as the divides.
Their point is to bring to the audience what they possibly don’t know about, or at least in a manner, what they haven’t seen. The show has been set up in regions of Delhi, UP & Punjab.
In a previous interview, Sudip mentioned that he has spent a lot of his time in Delhi and Punjab, Bundelkhand and UP, for the research he did for his previous works.
The creators of the show have done extensive research to bring to the audience the closest picture to reality. Sudip states that the objective was to keep it as authentic as possible. The audience waits to see what the show has in store for them. So mark your calendar everyone!
