Amazon Prime just released a trailer for Afsos, a darkly comedic original series. Nakul (Gulshan Devaiah) is deeply depressed and suicidal. He tries many different ways to end his life, but every single one of them fails. As a final resort, he hires a hitman to do the job for him. But before the deed is done, he meets a girl, has a change of heart and tries to back out of the arrangement. However, once given a job, the hitman is determined to finish it.
What follows in the trailer looks to be a game of cat and mouse with a few intense situations played for laughs. The show was written by stand-up comedian Anirban Dasgupta and directed by Anubhuti Kashyap (assistant director of Gangs of Wasseypur and Dev D). It features an ensemble cast of Gulshan Devaiah, Danish Sait, Heeba Shah, Ujjwal Chopra, Aakash Dahiya, Dhruv Sehgal, Anjali Patil, Ratnabali Bhattacharya and Jamie Alter.
