Jaideep as Hathiram takes the audiences through the back alleys of media and political power. Constantly bogged down by his family, superiors and his job, proving himself on one of the biggest cases of his life is Hathiram’s only road to redemption. As he takes this journey, we see him being engulfed into the universe of dark netherworld as he tries to prove his self-worth and seek justice in a post truth world.
It would be interesting to see whether Hathiram will fight to prove himself or will his investigation set a chain of events that has ramifications far worse than he could ever imagine.
Paatal Lok releases on Amazon Prime Video on May 15th, 2020.
