I think it's a evil war going on along with COVID-19. Don't worry guys, we are not talking about the realm of utmost darkness here by specifying name ASURA and PAATAL LOK. Who are not aware of it, just let me tell you in short that they are web series of MAGICAL Screen (I hope this word is justifying between Silver screen and Small Screen) yes it is. Who are not agree, kindly let me know then what should I call it?
While not being a spoiler to anyone these are the series with higher IMDB rating on most seen and likely by people like me who love the screen doesn't matter it's a big one, small one or mid one. And can be a weirdo couch potato and entertain themselves while helping the nation by staying inside in lock-down time. I am not comparing them, it was just their names which sounds sinful as well as interrelated.
ASURA, A voot Originals starring Arshad Warsi and Barun Sobti and many more great actors upholding there acting skills in a well versed way. A crime fiction, Thriller Web series released on 2 March,2020 on voot with 8.5/10 IMDB Rating streaming 8 episodes in season 1. Eagerly waiting for season 2? (don't take this question mark as mistaken, it has meaning for sure)
PAATAL LOK, A amazon Prime Originals streamed the season on magical screen on 15 May 2020 having 8.3/10 IMDB rating, starred by Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi, Abhishek Banerjee & more. Actors indulging themselves in their character so much that it is hard to believe that it's not real. It actually feel like it all happening around you, near you. A Dark Crime Geo Political thriller Drama with typical real Indian elements.
A life story of all the Criminals, Victim, Police and SYSTEM. As they said the "system" never changes:
"This SYSTEM looks completely rotten from the outside, But once you spend some time in it you realize it's a well-oiled machinery.
Every Part knows its job well, and the one that doesn't simply gets replaced."
The way the common criminals are shown as terrorists, religious misconceptions, poor life of Transgender, caste discrimination and Ugly local Politics, Ugly Media - hard hitting and thought Provoking. Here, Media shows their awful side and also their inspiring side who indeed defines 'what the journalism means' by Sara character in the series. Sometimes the dreadful reason, hard to digest traditions, castism let a monster out from a common man. Possibly now people will love dogs more then before (Yes, it has meaning too where i disagree but for that you need to watch it fully). The story meant to think everyone - YES, there is some other side too. Some sort of little things and content in a "paatal-lok" web series remind me of Article-15 (what a factual and stupendous movie of Ayushmann Khurrana)
Actors everyone has done their roles undoubtedly best performances from very small Auto rickshaw driver to the dangerous Hathoda Tyagi (GooseBumps).
I hope people just enjoy and entertain themselves by these stories and Web Series and not take these characters intelligence, logic's, strength, being fearless in a negative inspiring way. Coz somewhere our mind got attracted to this phenomena and some are sapiosexual that they can't get the difference between using intelligence in right way. And this difference is make you a ASURA of PAATAL LOK and GOD of heaven. Also, blockbuster series like these would help us to forget Hollywood content.
