Lalbazaar: ZEE5 brings Kolkata-based crime thriller

ZEE5 recently announced a new “edge-of-the-seat” crime thriller titled Lalbazaar.

Set in Kolkata, the ZEE5 Original will be based on the lives of police officers working in the homicide department of Lalbazaar in Central Kolkata.

The plot will venture into the underbelly of the ‘City of Joy’ and will have ten episodes.

Lalbazaar will feature Kaushik Sen, Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Sauraseni Maitra, Hrishitaa Bhatt and Gaurav Chakrabarty in pivotal roles.

This series marks Bhatt’s second venture with ZEE5. She was also previously seen in another ZEE5 Original named The Chargesheet – Innocent or Guilty?.

Directed by Sayantan Ghosal, the crime-based web series promises to be a thrilling ride that will show “lives beyond uniforms”.

The streaming platform will release the series in two languages – Bengali and Hindi.

The two minute-long trailer released on YouTube shows a gripping montage of everything that the web series has to offer. It creates a tense and sinister atmosphere for the viewers involving a string of murders, making it something to look forward to.

Lalbazaar will premiere on the Indian streaming platform on June 19, 2020.
