Afsos is an exceedingly somber series that depicts the battle between science and belief, mortality and immortality, through the struggles of different characters. What interlinks them is an article. Ayesha Mirani ( Sulagna Panigrahy), a young journalist pens down that disruptive article after extensive research on immortality. Following the links of her article, an international scientist persecutes the town of Panchsheel, the place rumored to have the potion of immortality. His agent consequently kills the sadhus who refuse to feed information about the potion. Only Fokatiya baba is spared after his leader sends him to Bombay. Fokatiya is on an unknown quest for the man who cannot die. Further, Bir Raj Singh (Dahiya), a virtuous inspector sets on a mission to avenge the death of sadhus in his town.
The series has some of the most intriguing and hard-hitting dialogues. Check them below:
