The genre of the series is based completely on crime-thriller. It consists of about 9 episodes packed completely under one season. The main protagonists are Jaideep Ahlawat (Hathiram Chaudhary) playing the role of a policeman, Neeraj Kabi (Sanjeev Mehra) plays the role of a high profile journalist and Abhishek Banerjee (Vishal or “Hathora” Tyagi) ,though he did not had much role or dialogues in the whole series. But, it was this person about whom this whole series was made upon.
This show had a lot of positive reviews and comments, The day pataal lok was released, ” NDTV gave it a 4 star rating. The Hindu wrote “powerful all around”. IMDB gave it 7.5/10. Overall the acting of all the characters, the storyline, the casting, the direction, the dialogues, comedy, thrill, everything was all well maintained giving a very powerfull and strong series all in all.
In the end the series is overall very whelming and enjoyable. It surely isn’t a family entertainment series as it comprises of a lots of abusive and cuss words, spoken in daily India. You should certainly resist it if you hate such language. This show portrays the real India, the real casteism in India, the real Indian underworld. What we see and hear in the news is not all true. Many are cooked up just to lower the hunger of the media and the people. This is what is actually portrayed by this show. Also, this show comprises of a lot of brutal murders and killing. Do not watch if your heart is weak. But if not, you should surely watch it by skipping those scenes.
Anurag Kashyap tweeted that pataal lok is “the best crime thriller to come out of this country”, adding that “It comes from the understanding of Real India. The dark heart of India,the communal and casteist India.
