When Army officer Sirohi (Viineet Kumar) and his team are assigned to a remote village to clear a path through the mountain that passes through it, the tribal villagers are understandably worried. Not only will they be displaced, but Betaal Mountain is cursed, and any attempts to excavate the tunnel under it will reawaken the army of undead British soldiers buried there.
Does Sirohi listen? Like most other protagonists in horror movies, he doesn’t. Soon the zombie Army’s leader, identified as ‘the Colonel’, is whispering, “Come to me” through his walkie-talkie and making plans to attack the village.
Also starring Jitendra Joshi, Aahana Kumra and Suchitra Pillai, Betaal is written by Patrick Graham (Ghoul), who has also co-directed it with Nikhil Mahajan. Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Blumhouse Productions, the series drops on Netflix on May 24.
