Patal Lok Web Series Review
Performances -Talking about the characters and performances, this show is the perfect validate as to how brilliant an actor Jaideep Ahlawat is. Being the central figure of everything going around him, the actor masterfully portrays a ‘small’ inspector, a ‘struggling’ father, and a brave man. Two actors surprise the most and will be considered as a find of the series – Mariembam Ronaldo Singh as Mary Lyngdoh and Ishwak Singh as Imran Ansari. Not only do they have great roles to portray, but they also do a brilliant job with it.
Direction- Paatal Lok Cleverly directed by Roy and Avinash Arun, Also that without taking a political side, one ends up making a hazy show
VERDICT – WOW…!
Our Rating 4/5
