Review – Betaal on Netflix

It depends whether you are a Hollywood lover or a Fan of Ramsay Brother’s horror movies. Because it will decide you will love it or not. Betaal a new series released on Netflix is much better than typical Bollywood Movies, but fails to match the Hollywood Movies.
Let’s first talk about the good things and why you should watch Betaal On Netflix.
Betaal is directed by Patrick Graham & Nikhil Mahajan and we have seen Patrick’s work in past in Ghoul a Netflix Original. This series a Zombie movie with a horror ghost twist that gives an Indian flavor to it. Plot and the story are purely an Indian Bollywood Style, a corrupt politician trying to capture a place in ruler area and used Indian military to keep the place empty. During this process they awake the evil and the whole story revolves around it. There is suspense, emotions, friendship, and dirty politics which we often see in any Bollywood Movie, however, you will miss the love angle as it’s missing from the story. Film has superb background music and good VFX work which makes the series completely different from what we use to see in other Bollywood Movies. You will definitely love this, the makeup of Zombies also on the better side as they look more realistic except the red eye color with Led, which was too old fashion.
let’s come to my part and if your purely Hollywood lover and love to watch Hollywood movies, especially if you watched zombie movies like The Walking Men then you feel a little disappointed as you feel makers of Betaal tried to copy or took references from other Zombies movies. If we compare it with them then definitely it doesn’t match the quality of direction and VFX. The climax was very much predictable and have clue for season 2 that we normally see in Hollywood movies, I also find the plot of the series was week as there are few scenes which look inappropriate but it can be ignored.
Now, come to the main point that should I recommend to watch it or not, and my answer will be Yes. You should watch this once as we hardly see such content in Bollywood and you cannot get boarded or de attached with any of the episodes of all 4 episodes.
