Typewriter Review: Netflix’s Horror Indian Series Will Give You Goosebumps


Today, I have watched Typewriter, Netflix’s new Indian horror series directed by Sujoy Ghosh. I think it should be at the top of your must-watch list this weekend. The five-episode series is set in present-day Bardez, Goa. Beginning of the story is the same as all Bollywood horror movies. New couple arrived in horror villa, and the drama begins… I am sure you would want to finish it after watching an episode. The pilot starts in the 1980s when Madhav Matthews (Kanwaljit Singh), a prolific ghost story writer is found dead in his house, Bardez Villa. Jenny (Palomi Ghosh), Madhav’s granddaughter and her family move into Bardez Villa. Jenny has forgotten all things about her mother and grandfather Bardez Villa’s horror and scary past, but the locals remember.

One of the most prolific writers, Decider’s Joel Keller wrote: “Typewriter made us legitimately jump a couple of times, always a good sign for a horror series. But the characters are so well-drawn, and the fact that it doesn’t take itself seriously makes it even better.”

The series takes many twists and turns throughout and you are always on the edge of your seat. I don’t know why people are calling Stranger Things the most terrifying show on Netflix right now, but in reality, it is Typewriter. I am sure you will not be able to leave the show if you enjoy watching horror thrillers.

I think the director will come up with its next session. If you enjoy such type of series and are a fan of the complex, psychological thriller kind of horror, it must be watched. So time to dedicate this weekend to Typewriter.
