Afsos: Prime Video reveals unique black comedy thriller

Amazon has brought out its A-game again with a twisted new original series. Titled Afsos, the show is about a suicidal man unable to pull the plug on life despite numerous attempts.

The official trailer released on Amazon Prime Video India’s YouTube channel is as unique as the premise. It showcases the titular character seeking professional help from the underworld to get killed because he can’t kill himself.

Having experienced a miserable existence, he finally wants to give up but a new love interest makes him change his mind. Now, with a fresh perspective on life, he still has to deal with a deadly assassin sent to kill him.

The vibe of the trailer is not all seriousness but also has hints of comedy, suspense and chaos. The idea of a business for killing people who fail to commit suicide is macabre but has a slice of humour to it.

However, there may be a case of revealing too much in the trailer with this one. The protagonist is shown to have been shot towards the end by the assassin. Is it misdirection or a silly mistake by the creators?

Afsos stars Gulshan Devaiah, Anjali Patil and Heeba Shah in the lead and will premiere on 17 January 2020.
