Betaal Review: Screenplay
The Web series has only 4 episodes which would leave you wanting more. The Screenplay is fast, crisp and keeps on edge of the seat all the time which itself is a big achievement for any Web Series.
Betaal Review: Cinematorgraphy and Art
Whenever it’s a Netflix series, I personally think they order everything in shades of Red and Black and these set arts are becoming more and more evident. There’s a particular style of cinematography which is followed by Netflix and this is like a guideline for all production houses whether Indian or foreign whenever it comes to Netflix Originals. And frankly Betaal is No Different.
With the plot in hand, the Cinematography team could have explored new territories but most of the combat being inside even that flexibility is gone. In Short they could not be innovative but they do full justice to the plot and the screenplay and help in keeping it crisp.
Betaal Review: Direction
Patrick Graham needs no introduction and he is quite a name with the Netflix audience. He has previously worked on Projects like Leila, Ghoul, Phir Se, Hood, Slaughter House and many more projects with Betaal being the biggest of them all till now.
He does a fine job in not going overboard at any moment, the vision was very clear that he did not want to make an out and out horror film. It was a Mix of Horror, Suspense, Thrill which is packed with Decent action and he does complete justice to the money allotted to the projects.
Betaal Review: Perfomances
Frankly These types of projects do not give a platform to actors to shine through it take a Hathiram type Role in Paatal Lok to shine in this field.
But, We have experienced actors here managing the key roles Whether it is Vineet Kumar Singh playing the Main Protagonist Vikram Sirohi or Aahana Kumara as DC Ahluwalia or Suchitra Pillar as Commander Tyagi they all fit in like perfect pieces to the puzzle and does complete justice to the roles given to them.
Vineet Kumar Singh’s Character which is Vikram Sirohi has got more depth than any other character and He rises up to the occasion to bring out emotions in the plot. He will surely create many new fans after this role.
Betaal Review: Final Word
Just go for it, it’s full entertainment package loaded with Thrills, Horror, Suspense, Good Production values and nothing to complain.
Now the main question which everyone asks after every web series. Does it End Here?
