BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: On the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, Amazon Prime Video introduces the character of Sanjeev Mehra, played by the versatile Neeraj Kabi as the charismatic well-known journalist in Pataal Lok. We will also see Abhishek Banerjee (of Stree fame) as Vishal Tyagi, aka Hathoda Tyagi, a volatile, ruthless and a serial killer.
Inspired by the ancient realms of swargalok (heaven), dharti lok (earth), and paatal lok (netherworld), the neo-noir series delves into the interplay within the four estates of democracy.
