Paatal Lok is a police-based crime thriller written by Sudip Sharma and follows a washed out cop in his venture into a twisted case surrounding the attempt of an assassination of a prime time journalist.

One of the main reasons that the creators set up the plot in Delhi was that it's the apex of the Indian political scene and where the power centers lie. Sudip said that 70 per cent of Paatal Lok had been shot at actual locations in Delhi, Gurgaon, and Rohtak.

The makers of the show give us a glimpse into what their idea was behind the creation of the show. They said that they wanted to explore different cultures, perspectives, and tales from various regions, as well as the divides.

Their point is to bring to the audience what they possibly don't know about, or at least in a manner, what they haven't seen. And going by its growing popularity, many people have been of the opinion that Paatal Lok may beat OTT shows like Mirzapur and Sacred Games to be the biggest OTT show ever. However, it remains to be seen if Paatal Lok could overcome every hurdle in its path.
