It’s a common sight to see celebrities coming out in support of a show or film when it just hits the theatres or web. Most of the times, it is the stars coming out to support their friends. However, when celebrities across industries rave over a venture, one can assume that it has really entertained them.
That has been the case with the web series Paatal Lok that hit the web on May 15. While the reactions from fans had made headlines that day itself, the celebrity reviews have been pouring in since the release. Jaideep Ahlawat, who plays the role of a police officer, took the cake as far as the reviews were concerned.
Vicky Kaushal was one of the notable names to praise him, terming it the ‘best performance of the year.’
There were other adjectives for him too, like ‘sublime’, ‘glorious’ and that he was ‘the show.’
Bhuvan Bam, Ali Fazal, Manoj Bajpayee, Nitesh Tiwari, Aahana Kumra, Sujoy Ghosh, Sayani Gupta, Hansal Mehta and Surbhi Jyoti were among the many celebrities to hail the show. Words like 'gripping', 'terrific watch', 'thrilling', 'stomach churning', 'reeling from the brilliance of it' were used by the celebs.
The writers and directors like Sudip Sharma, Avinash Arun, Prosit Roy were also lauded and even casting, cinematography caught their attention. Anushka Sharma too was praised for producing such a venture.
