Nothing new than just a liberal leftist producer producing a series based with their interests and propagandas.

I binge watched the entire show in 2 days. I am a person who has watched most of the crime dramas on Prime video and Netflix. Breaking Bad, Sinner, Unbelievable, the Fall, the list is endless. I find Breaking Bad to best English show ever on Netflix. Because it is spread over several seasons, the character and story build up is amazing. Amongst the Indian shows, Patal lok is leaps and bounds above any other show on both OTT platforms. Content, story,direction,screenplay, editing- it's quite near flawless. Great work Team Patal lok for bringing Cinema to the next level!

The 100 and Dark are best Netflix shows ever. Breaking bad bored me to death for being so slow, Slower than Money heist too.

It showed us the true incidents that are happening in the society and what the government is doing with the people belonging to the lower castes. Most people will find it relatable it has nothing to do with liberal or right wing thinking.
