Betaal Public Review: 15 Tweets That Sum Up the SRK-Produced Netflix Series

If you haven’t already, go watch Betaal. It’s a new Netflix zombie-horror show, produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s label, Red Chillies Entertainment. Betaal is an intriguing story based in a remote Indian village, where the remnants of colonizers still remain. This village is a battleground between British Indian Army Officer Lt. Col John Lynedoch, his battalion of zombie redcoats, and the Fictional CIPD force. The show is radical, and makes connections to the current violence perpetuated by the Indian army on Naxals and villagers in remote parts of India, all the while adding the element of zombie horror to the story, upping the stakes immediately.

The cast of Betaal is obviously talented. Starring Vineet Kumar, Aahana Kumra and Suchitra Pillai in the leads, each of them adds a complexity to their characters. The series is written and directed by Patrick Graham and co-directed by Nikhil Mahajan. It released on Netflix on May 24, so you’re not too late to catch it.

While Betaal has received generally poor reviews from critics, and a few positive ones here and there, what really matters is what the fans have to say. Aam janta, Bharat ki public jo bolti hai, woh hi sahi review hoti hai. So we picked up some of the best reviews, summed up within 280 characters, of Betaal, from Indian Twitter handles.
