New Delhi:Amazon Prime Video on Tuesday launched the trailer of its third Indian Original of 2020, 'Paatal Lok'.
Produced by Clean Slate Filmz, the unsettling crime-drama revolves around Inspector Hathi Ram Chaudhary, a washed-out Delhi cop who is put on an extremely high profile case. Four suspects are nabbed in the assassination attempt of a well-known journalist.
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'. 'Paatal Lok' will be available in more than 200 countries and territories, and Prime members will be able to stream all nine episodes, from May 15.
