Netflix is bringing female oriented dystopian dramas to Indian audiences on a consistent basis. A few months back, they brought the Radhika Apte starrer Ghoul. Today, they dropped the trailer for the Huma Qureshi starrer Leila. The series, set in the future that’s as brutal as its conforming, is about a woman who marries and has her child snatched away from her, by what looks to be a cult that rules the country. The series also stars Arif Zakaria as the leader of this cult and Rahul Khanna as the father of the child.
The trailer is enough to send a chill down the spine of anyone who watches it, and is a surreal experience. It’s good to see that Indian content creators are waking up to the concept of secret cults and other such aspects that make for great story telling.
