Typewriter is mystery-thriller which promises to deliver an edge-of-the-seat experience to viewers. Talking about the cast, it boasts of the presence of talented actors like Paulami Ghosh, Samir Kochar and Purab Kohli in lead roles. Arna Sharma, Aaryansh Malviya, Milkail Gandhi and Palash Kamble also play important characters.
The five-episode series revolves around a haunted house, Bardez Villa, in Goa and a group of young, neophyte ghost hunters determined to capture the ghost that plagues a notorious home in their neighbourhood. When a new family moves into the haunted home, the crew finds it difficult to balance the demands of school and chores with the renewed urgency to solve the mystery. What follows next forms the crux of the story.
Apart from Typewriter, Netflix is currently producing a number of highly awaited originals for Indian audiences. Some of its under-production ventures include Baahubali: Before the Beginning, Bard of Blood, Class of 83 and an official adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children.
