Betaal Web Series Review: What is so thrilling? Come, let’s know more!

Betaal Web Series Review

More precisely, the Betaal web series, or Betaal, a streaming television series, is an Indian-based zombie horror.

A remote village serves as the locale for the Betaal web series, more appropriately offering the battleground between the East India Company officer Lt. Col John Lynedoch and his battalion of the zombie redcoats from the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and the fictional CIPD force.


The most striking thing about this series is its focus on the particularized genre. While comedies, tragedies, and romances might interest some, the others choose to be willingly baffled and dreaded by scenes and episodes of horror, myths, dread, and thrill.

The sphere of horror and dread is an end and means in itself. Terror and danger provide scope for the development of the plot, and the thrill that follows paves the path to either an unbelievable resolution or leaves the audience in a state of perplexity.

Often, the concluding scenes offer nothing at all, and the audience is left dumbstruck with a question that haunts them all through. Thus, the Betaal web series serves as a perfect fit for those who remain perpetually inclined to such a genre.

Written and directed by Patrick Graham and co-directed by Nikhil Mahajan, the Betaal web series streaming on the platform of Netflix has become the second most thrilling collaboration between the production house and Netflix.

The series stars the very popular Vineet Kumar Singh and Aahana Kumra on the significantly essential roles on Netflix.

Produced by Blumhouse Productions and Red Chilies Entertainment, the Betaal web series received appreciation for its spectacular performances and dynamic use of mythology and zombies.

However, the Betaal web series failed to achieve an overall positive review in general due to its lack of proper editing and sufficient addition of thrill to the flow of the plot. In all, the reviews stand to be negative with several scopes for betterment.

Production of Betaal Web Series

Rahul Desai from the Film Companion stated that “Betaal, for much of its four episodes, is a brilliant homegrown spoof on the zombie-folk horror genre.

The zombies are utterly useless, spending their time knocking on closed doors and being butter-fingered flesh eaters.”
