My brain cells died a gory death today. #BetaalReview story didn't have holes but potholes, size of craters. Characters were unconvincing n as logical as a naive gal in B-grade 80s horror movie. That Dolby won't help if the basics aren't good. Waste of talent @NetflixIndia

Creator Patrick Graham has shown his mettle again after Ghoul! Brining in blood thirsty zombies and merging it with Indian horror! @RedChilliesEnt @_GauravVerma @jason_blum

Trailer was good …. But honestly saying #Betaal lost it completely. So much illogical writing, still somehow actors performed well but @NetflixIndia , This one is really disappointing #BetaalReview @ItsViineetKumar @AahanaKumra

#BetaalOnNetflix uses a cross between ordinary humans and the world of traditional folklore to create effective engagement & thrills. The visuals, atmosphere, cinematography & theme will remind you of #Tumbbad, especially the tunnel & hastar. A good watch! Ep.1 of #BetaalReview pic.twitter.com/NUoRz8Do2k

Betaal tried to be unique but ended up as a mediocre horror/Zombie affair, Episode 1 & 2 is Fantastic as story & execution was very powerful but crashed in Ep 3 & 4 which turns out to be boring and less engaging, confused screenplay "AVERAGE"
2.5*/5 #BetaalReview #BetaalOnNetflix

Betaal running high on audience rating.
8.7/10 rating on IMDb
88% ?? on google
Betaal season 1 is a Zombie-Thriller series and it's amazing and visually stunning. Very gripping as well with Great Production Design.

#BetaalReview watchable – not so scary as expected from the trailer- engaging- good thing is that the story ends but also a hook is provided for next season — but not so exciting to wait for next season @netflix @RedChilliesEnt
