Tisca Chopra stars in the online series Dahan, which can be seen streaming on Disney+Hotstar. Let’s examine this new spooky series in detail to determine whether it’s worthwhile to stream.

Dahan Web Series Review

Story

People still hold superstitious beliefs and believe in the supernatural in the village of Shilaspura. The Indian government uses satellite filters to find rare earth materials in the hills of Shilaspura, and then it sends Avani Raut to negotiate with the locals and persuade them to remove the minerals from the caverns. The residents of the hamlet, however, are scared to learn about the hills because they think there is a strong soul concealed in the caves that, if it were to be unleashed, would cause havoc.

Series Verdict

To date, there has been a lot of series produced in the categories of romance, action, comedy, and thriller. The supernatural thriller series is relatively infrequently seen in other languages. Dahan is one of those shows that gives a fresh genre to watch, but the narrative and production design make the situations in the show look incredibly flat and lack impact. Even though a handful of the episodes’ horror scenes worked out well, we’ve seen them in a lot of other movies, so they don’t particularly thrill us. When we binge-watch the entire nine-episode season, we only find one or two episodes to be particularly compelling.

Tisca Chopra tried her best to carry the series with her acting, but the shoddy production and writing prevented her from succeeding. The actor Saurabh Shukla looks fantastic on screen and did a fantastic job. Rajesh Tailang had a respectable performance, and all of the other actors carried out their tasks as needed to keep the show moving.

The Dahan series appears to be pretty average technically. Although the music was well-written, it did not make us shiver as we watched the frightening moments. In some instances, Arkodeb Mukherjee’s cinematography is adequate, while in others, it appears juvenile. This show’s editing might have been improved to get viewers to commit to watching these 40–45 minute episodes.

Vikrant Pawar, the director, fell short of expectations by not offering a gripping thriller to watch. However, the director deserves praise for his unpolished work in a few sequences and for presenting the viewers with a fresh genre.

Dahan is an admirable effort overall, but it can’t hold viewers’ attention long enough for them to watch an entire episode.
