Paatal Lok and its Anti-Heroes: The series Paatal Lok depicted a hardcore theme. In it’s sixth episode a man says, ‘Insaan ke bache ki jaan bohat sakht hoti hai saahab, keede ke jese. Log marne ke liye chor jaate hain, par woh zinda rehna seekh hi jaata hai’ to the chief protagonist. These words in the show are from a man who survived the battles with the daily life. The series pointed towards the irony of life in front of death. What all a man goes through in the process to fight back for his own life.
Paatal Lok and its anti-heroes
If we do an in-depth analysis of the series you will find out that Pataal Lok is doing the same what Satya did for the Indian cinema. The Amazon series is truly breaking the all set barriers and is finding it’s way straight into the hearts of the viewers.
A movie or a series can be a complete waste if anything goes wrong to be in writing, or screenplay or acting. No doubt the actors Jaideep Ahlawat, Abhishek Banerjee and others have done a great job in their roles. But what actually made the series exceptional is it’s writing. The series is putting forward a whole history. The characters here are not only depicting the story but also histories.
Paatal Lok Story Detail
The series depicted that stories can be of anti-heroes too. Similarly, the movie Satya told this to Indian cinema that an anti-hero can have a story too. Well, there is one difference between Satya and Paatal Lok, that is, Satya mainly depicted the underworld whereas Paatal Lok depicted its normalcy. The show depicted the unreliable claim of normalcy, basically the country’s poignant reality.
However, the series seems to be a bit discomforting to the viewers as there is a lot of layering of characters in the series. The viewers find it as unnecessary baggage to the show. But they don’t know that stories are not always about the good parts. The bad parts of society also contain a lot of history behind it.
Overall, the show is quite desirable to binge-watch on. All the episodes of Pataal Lok are available on the streaming platform, Amazon Prime Video.
