This Indian series is engrossing and scary at times. It starts with expantion of the famous two line horror story “Dad, there is someone under my bed!”. I feel that Sujoy Ghosh tried to build on this two line ghost storyline and brought in the typewriter as the main concept. It works well for this mini series of five parts in season 1. The good news is that the typewriter lives in the end which means season 2 is going to come anytime soon in future. It is a ghost story set in the picturesque Goa.
Like Stranger Things, this series features four children as its protagonists, though not suitable for family viewing due to its graphic voilence and F-words dropped by adults in unexpected situations. These four kids and a cute dog form the ghost club. The major plus point is the location in which this series is set. It makes one feel nostalgic about Goa for those who had visited it like me.
The villa is well designed set, but you can clearly see that it’s not real. All in all, an interesting mini series. The acting is pretty impressive. Kids are awesome as well as most of the adult characters. I hope season 2 is better.
Recommended for those like mysteries and scary mini series. My rating is 3.5/5.
