While I was glued to my screen binge-watching Amazon Prime Video’s nail-biting crime-thriller, Paatal Lok, I realised that there was something spine-chilling about the musical build-up in almost every scene.  


If you’re anything like me and have been tripping on the catchy, haunting soundtracks of Paatal Lok, let me introduce you to Naren Chandavarkar and Benedict Taylor. They’re the mastermind composers behind controlling your mind with their rhythmic music.

10. Nil Battey Sannata

Also, I don’t know who needs to know this fun fact but Benedict Taylor is a world-renowned violinist who also happens to be Radhika Apte’s husband.
