5 Indian Crime Drama Series That People Will Enjoy For Sure, If They Enjoyed ‘Paatal Lok’
Not that long ago, a lot of us were under the impression that like all things, Indian OTT shows were very loosely made and couldn’t possibly live up to their European and American counterparts. Shows like Mindhunters, Westworld, and Ozark were shows we all swore by. Yes, Sacred Games came pretty close, but the second season left us bereft, best summed up in this meme –
Then came along 2020 and boy oh boy, were we proven wrong. Throughout 2019, our shows were becoming better and better, with each passing season, to the point where we made something like Paatal Lok. If you guys still haven’t watched the show, thinking “Oh, its just Amazon Prime’s version of Sacred Games,” y’all are dead wrong.

It is a genuinely well-made show, and something that is much, much more well crafted than Sacred Games was. So get out from beneath the rock that you’ve been living under and watch the show.
As for those of you who have indeed watched the show, and are looking for your next series to hook yourself on to, here are five Indian OTT shows that people are guaranteed to love if they enjoyed watching Paatal Lok.
Jamtara – Sabka Number Ayega
A Netflix series that shows how exactly internet phishing and credit card fraud works in India, Jamtara is entertaining for a number of reasons. It is very tightly written and strikes a good balance between giving out information while delving deep into the lives of the criminals involved, their socio-economic backgrounds and how it shapes them, and what a life of crime entails in rural India. Yes, it has it’s share of issues, mainly that it has some unnecessary masala added to it, but that still is done rather tastefully.
Another Netflix series that focuses on crime in Delhi, Delhi Crime is a retelling of the 2012 Delhi Rape case, that shook India to its core. Most of us thought that we were aware of just how brutal the incident was in real life. Trust us, we were wrong. The show put forth some chilling, and seriously nerve-wracking stuff that was never part of the public domain before. Seriously guys, if you’re into shows that cover crime, do give this a watch, to understand, just how depraved humanity has become.
Available on Voot, Asur is masterfully crafted tale of a serial killer, operating in tier III India. The beauty of the show lies in the manner with which it completely decimates the notions of good & bad, and what qualities make heroes. The cinematography is spot on, and there are visuals that are somewhat disturbing, but again, they have been shot really well, to add a meaningful impact.
The Family Man
Okay, we agree, Amazon Prime’s The Family Mani isn’t anywhere nearly as gory as the previous shows listed, but it genuinely is a great crime/chase thriller. Plus, the performances of stalwarts like Manoj Bajpayee is a good enough reason to watch the show.
Hotstar’s Criminal Justice is one of those shows that pretty much flew under the radar, and went nearly unnoticed. However, people who watched the show, couldn’t stop recommending it. Vikrant Massey, Pankaj Tripathi, and Jackie Shroff are all powerhouse performers. When you give them a really well-written script to perform on, what ensues is nothing short of a spectacle. A must-watch, if you ask us.
Trust us when we say that if you are looking for a crime drama that has you biting your nails to the root, this list, pretty much sorts you out for a couple of weekends
