“It finds humanity in its darkest heart. It shows us the large gap between rural and urban India. Extremely well written, shot performed. It makes you realize, that only those who see and understand this large gap between the two India’s, will wield power over it.”
“Abhishek, Neeraj Kabi, Swastika, Vipin, Gul .. have seen them all before, always at their best, it’s the ones I saw the first time- Niharika, Jagjeet, Ishwak took my heart. Great job Avinash Arun and Prosit. Kudos to the producers for standing by the team.”
“In the end .. Jaideep Ahlawat and Sudip Sharma .. your finest work yet.
and the team of writers, casting directors, assistants(Red heart), cinematographers, production designers, costumes. Everyone involved taking a bow. I am so inspired. Streaming on @PrimeVideoIN”

Another netizen expresses, “#PaatalLok is loaded with strong socio-political commentary & is easily the best show to have come out of the Indian web space in a long time. Its noir-ish origins give it a distinct edge. Kudos to @AnushkaSharma for investing in gritty stories that strongly speak to our times.”
