Exploring the various class and economic divides in the country through a gritty web series, Anushka Sharma-produced Paatal Lok is earning praises all over. The show, created by Udta Punjab writer Sudip Sharma seems to have matched the hype that was created, leading up to its release. It’s definitely a must-watch this week.
Abhay Deol is back to producing another feel-good film about unusual friendships and dilemmas in life. Titled What are the Odds?, the film starring Abhay as a rockstar alongwith Yashaswini Dayama and Monica Dogra will be available for streaming in the middle of the week.
Take a look at more titles you can watch this week.
Paatal Lok (Amazon Prime Video)
Produced by Anushka Sharma's Clean Slate Filmz, the highly anticipated nine-part crime drama revolves around Inspector Hathi Ram Chaudhary (Jaideep Ahlawat), a washed-out Delhi cop, who is given charge of an extremely high-profile case. The case turns out to be a devious maze where nothing is what it seems on the surface. This, in turn, leads Chaudhary down a treacherous path that leads straight to the dangerous alleys of the netherworld - Paatal Lok.
What are the Odds? (Netflix) Abhay Deol's next project as a producer is a feature film titled What are the Odds?, in collaboration with the makers of Delhi Crime, FilmKaravan Originals. Abhay will also be seen playing the role of a rockstar in the film. What are the Odds? is Megha Ramaswamy's directorial debut and stars Yashaswini Dayama (Dear Zindagi, Made in Heaven, Delhi Crime) and Karanvir Malhotra (The Forgotten Army, Selection Day). It is an honest, often hilarious and rapt exploration of growing up in contemporary India devoid of its cultural specificities and celebrating unusual friendships.
