The best thing about #Betaal is that it is not like your typical horror series. The plot is fresh and unique and it has many elements to it.— Gurdeep⚡ (@gurdeep0701) May 24, 2020
Everyone should watch this series at least once. #BetaalOnNetflix @RedChilliesEnt @iamsrk pic.twitter.com/VZwH99wkEe
Watched #Betaal all 4 episodes. The best Horror series you can find on Netflix. Now i can say that indians are working hard and beautifully in horror genre. Can easily beat Tummbad which was a masterpiece in Indian Cinema. Do watch is Masterpiece 🔥 🧟♂️ #BetaalOnNetflix pic.twitter.com/oSdXIzGTJe— FunnyWaves (@WavesFunny) May 24, 2020
Watched two episodes of #BetaalOnNetflix and couldn’t watch anymore.— Divya Johnson (@divya_johnson) May 25, 2020
Over the top, predictable and has no logic whatsoever.
Going back to some good old episodes of The Walking Dead.
2nd Watch of #Betaal— ✠ Triple H ✠ (@HrisHikesH_HHH) May 24, 2020
With an impeccable score coupled with great cinematography & solid suspense building scenes,
this intense Zombie action thriller uses stark realism to encapsulate you in a terrific, nail biting thriller

Betaal tried to be unique but ended up as a mediocre horror/Zombie affair, Episode 1 & 2 is Fantastic as story & execution was very powerful but crashed in Ep 3 & 4 which turns out to be boring and less engaging, confused screenplay “AVERAGE”— Rohitt Jaiswal (@rohitjswl01) May 24, 2020

#BetaalOnNetflix is one of the most brilliant Horror thrillers I’d ever seen.— Shiv (@not_so_reall) May 24, 2020
What a brilliant screenplay barring 2-3 dull scenes.
#BetaalOnNetflix is not just bad. It adds to the lockdown frustration. Lose direction, confused performances, weak dialogues. It’s stuck in between commercial & realistic cinema.@iamsrk i can join red chillies as a content planner to help you decide on what to put your moneys on pic.twitter.com/ewCF34ki6D— Java Rock (@JavaRaghu) May 25, 2020
Binge watched #BetaalOnNetflix— Radhika Gupta (@evlutn_radhika) May 25, 2020
It’s an extremely intriguing series. Hats off to the cast and crew
Rating 3/5.— Subhendu Mazumder (@subhendu_90) May 24, 2020
Completed watching #BetaalOnNetflix ,
story has minor glitches, seems dragged a bit, could be completed in 3 episodes, ending not upto d mark, one observation #Betaal‘s look is molded based upon NightKing of GOT with exception of eye color. @AahanaKumra stands out.
BETAAL has a good flow of story with good horror scenes. The director has pulled right strings to create a tense and mysterious atmosphere. Must watch if you love zombie thrillers.@NetflixIndia #BetaalOnNetflix pic.twitter.com/WfoyMbPw1O— FarziEngineer (@beroojgaaar) May 24, 2020
Liked the story,it consolidated the zombie genre in Indian cinema.But the acting is poor, especially that child,pathetic.Terrible miscasting.They had potential but ended up making it a home invasion drama.The red eyes of the zombies made them look like robots6/10#BetaalOnNetflix pic.twitter.com/HM6f1fZ3eV— Swarnav Jr.✪ (@Swarnav_Jr) May 24, 2020
