'Why are all hyped Indian web series dark and violent, asks Suchitra Krishnamoorthi

The arrival of streaming platforms in recent years has led to netizens enjoying web series and films across languages, countries and genres. Many of these ventures have enjoyed tremendous fan following, with dialogues going viral and memes surfacing too. As far as Indian web series is concerned, it perhaps wouldn’t be wrong to say that ones involving action have been more popular.

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi was not pleased with this genre of content and took a dig at it recently. The actor-singer took to Twitter to call them ‘hyped’. The Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na star asked why such shows were ‘so dark and violent.’ She added that it was ‘not cool.’

Here’s the tweet

Some netizens agreed with her comment, while others felt the ‘formula’ seemed to be working well on the platform. Others named some of the other genre shows that they felt were good.




Though not direct, but Suchitra might have taken a dig at Paatal Lok.  There’s no doubt that it is the most talked-about Indian web series at the moment. The Jaideep Ahlawat-starrer too is a thriller, dealing with a dark plot revolving around an assassination and involves violence.

Not just has the Anushka Sharma-produced show being praised by numerous celebrities, there have also been controversies surrounding it, right from a notice to the makers over casteist slurs or reduction in its rating on IMDb.

Before Paatal Lok, other web series that dealt with a ‘dark’ plot like Sacred Games and Mirzapur have been considered among the most popular Indian shows in the last few years. Right from some of the characters attaining cult status to their dialogues becoming a part of daily conversations, the shows might have overshadowed the other ventures at least in terms of popularity.
