Tisca Chopra is widely regarded as one of the most talented performers working in the Hindi film business; despite this, the producers of Hindi films give the actress a relatively restricted range of characters to play in their productions.

Despite this, Tisca Chopra was able to salvage her career by accepting some of the better jobs that were offered to her. Tisca Chopra stars in the title role of the web series Dahan, which can be viewed online via the streaming service provided by Disney+Hotstar. Please provide us with a comprehensive assessment of this new supernatural series so that we can determine whether or not it is worthwhile to stream this series.

Dahan Web Series: Plot

People in a nearby village called Shilaspura continue to have faith in supernatural phenomena and practice a variety of different superstitions. Through the use of satellite filters, the government of India discovers the presence of rare earth minerals in the hills of Shilaspura.

The government then dispatches Avani Raut to negotiate with the residents of the hamlet and convince them to allow the extraction of the minerals from the caverns. However, the residents in the hamlet are scared of hearing about the hills because they believe that there is some powerful spirit hiding in the caverns on the hills, and that if it ever gets freed, it will cause mayhem if it is unleashed.

Dahan Web Series: Is It Worth Watching?

Up until this point, we have witnessed a great deal of television series that are of the Romance, Action, Comedy, and Thriller varieties. We come across the spooky thriller series in any language only very infrequently.

One of these shows is called Dahan, and it introduces viewers to a new type of show to watch. However, the creation of the show and the scenes that are written in the show are quite dull, and the writing doesn’t produce any effect. Even though some of the horror sequences in a few episodes turned out nicely, we have witnessed quite similar sequences in a great number of movies, and therefore, these sequences do not excite us. When we watch the entire season of this nine-episode show in one sitting, we only find one or two of the episodes to be intriguing.

When it comes to acting, Tisca Chopra did her best to pull off the series with her performance; nevertheless, the terrible writing and making do not allow her to do so. She tried very hard to pull off the series with her performance.

The screen presence of Saurabh Shukla is absolutely fantastic, and he performed an excellent job overall. In addition to Rajesh Tailang, all of the other players carried out their roles effectively, which was essential for the events that took place.

The Dahan series seems to have extremely ordinary technical quality. The music that was made is satisfactory, and listening to it as we were witnessing the terrifying events did not send shivers down our spines.

Arkodeb Mukherjee is responsible for the cinematography, and while it is okay in some parts, it appears to be lacking maturity in other scenes. The editing of this series should have been improved, in order to persuade viewers to devote the time necessary to watch episodes that are between 40 and 45 minutes in length.

The expectations that were set for Director Vikrant Pawar in terms of producing an exciting thriller to watch were not met. Nevertheless, the director deserves praise for his rough making in a few sequences and for choosing a new genre to introduce to the audience. Both of these things should be acknowledged.

Overall, Dahan is an admirable effort, but it is not successful in compelling viewers to commit the necessary effort to watch all of the episodes.
