Indian audience is witnessing back to back OTT content with shows made on almost every genre whether it is thriller, comedy, romance action or horror, however, the latter is something that the makers hesitate much, as the Indian audience haven’t consumed more content of other genres than that of horror.
But, Vikram Pawar directed Dahan: Raakan Ka Rahasya is something which the audience had been waiting for very long. The supernatural series made its debut on Disney+Hotstar on September 16, 2022 and all episodes were released in one go.
Plot of the Series
The series follows IAS officer Avani Raut who arrives at a village called Silaspur in Rajasthan, to kickstart a mining project worth Rs. 240 crore. However, her goal is obstructed by villagers who believe in the tremendous evil power of an ancient sorcerer called Ridhikayan, whose head, they believe is trapped inside a rock to prevent any untoward circumstances and to keep peace in the village, they must worship him.
Avani tried to convince the villagers about the revolution of progress this project will bring in the village. However, one Pramukh, played by Saurabh Shukla, is someone who is standing against her. He not only performs exorcism but also guards the Silasthal- the place of worship of Ridhikayan.
Produced by Banijay Asia, the series shows Avani’s struggle and Silaspur’s dark secrets so that its people can finally be touched by the modern world. All of this, while she being a single mother, is also dealing with her past as well as some false corruption charges against her.
