is an Indian horror miniseries based on the Arab folklore monster ghoul, and the second Netflix original from India. The series is written and directed by Patrick Graham and jointly produced by Blumhouse Productions which is behind such films as “Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “Get Out,” and “The Purge.” .
The story is set in India in a dystopian future where fascism is at its top, and the story's main plot is the interrogation of a dreaded terrorist Ali Saeed in a secret government internment camp that ignites a series of horrifying and supernatural events in the aftermath. Radhika Apte plays the main character Nida Rahim, a promising soldier who is present when an important prisoner is brought to a remote military facility for interrogation. He instead, “turns the tables on his interrogators, exposing their most shameful secrets.” As for the horror element, perhaps the traditional definition of “ghoul” can give a hint of what to expect: “an evil demon, originally of Muslim legend, supposed to feed on human beings, and especially to rob graves, prey on corpses, etc.”
The miniseries was conceived based on a dream Graham had seen. Originally meant to be the first of 3 films in a deal between three production houses, Netflix acquired the production in February 2018 after Graham felt that a longer format would be better and had it turned into a miniseries. The first season released to positive reviews from critics, with praise to the performances and storyline.
