Khakee: The Bihar Chapter Trailer
Netflix announced its first ever collaboration with ace filmmaker Neeraj Chopra via Khakee on October 28, 2022. The platform also dropped a one-minute long teaser, which opened to a voiceover that takes us back to the period when Bihar had the highest crime rate and the lowest conviction rate in the country.
We further see the political instability, shootouts, violent criminals, and a lot of unrest, which suggests the series would deal with the violence and corruption the state witnessed during the early 2000s. Inspired by a true story, the series follows an epic tussle between a dreadful criminal and a determined cop- IPS Amit Lodha.
