The Last Hour is a unique concept executed decently when I tuned into watching the 8 episode series on amazon prime video. I didn’t go with any expectations but the writer and director of this series Amit Kumar has made fabulous job. This series focuses on a number of murders that take place in Sikkim to stop those crimes a police officer Arup played by Sanjay Kapoor and a jagri aka shaman dev played by karma takapa solving these crime scenes. A Jagri Shaman dev can see what took place in the last hour of the dead body. This series is a supernatural crime thriller that explores the reason for so many murders taking place in the locality and in the process of doing so also explores the elements that go beyond the mortal realm.
As we know it here’s me telling you the good and bad aspects of the series in no particular order so that you guys can ultimately decide whether to watch the last hour on amazon prime video or not. The cinematography probably the biggest selling point of this series and its beautiful & expansive visuals of this series are primarily shot in Sikkim. The Sikkim state has been captured beautifully from the dense and extensive forests the mighty and almost intimidating mountain ranges in contrast to the narrow and densely populated market areas and streets. The cinematography by Jaish Nayar really made me come to the conclusion that a series gets elevated when it is shot in real locations.
Many unanswered questions everyone in the series is dealing with some form of loss and this leads to the series having more or less a very gloomy appearance one of the main reasons why people are torn apart regarding the series some gravitating towards that melancholic mood and some completely rejecting it as they expect crime thrillers to be a little more engaging and exciting.
