Indian Predator: The Butcher Of Delhi review | WATCH IT, HERE IS WHY
Indian Predator: The Butcher Of Delhi is a three-part docuseries, directed by Ayesha Sood and produced by VICE India, that details the case of a serial killer that would leave dismembered bodies around Delhi, usually along with notes that taunted Delhi Police with details of their investigation that they’ve missed.
This TV series is also great investigative journalism. It brings to the viewers eyewitness accounts, evidence, and facts that even the police couldn’t uncover.
What this TV series is all about?
Indian Predator is not a whodunnit. It does not involve mystery around the killer but around his crimes and motives. This TV series unravels the mind of a truly deranged and dangerous man who preyed upon his victims unchecked and unfettered for years. It deals with the crimes of Delhi’s CC Killer aka Chandrakant Jha, who rose to infamy over 15 years ago when he began leaving headless bodies on the gate of Tihar Jail, taunting the police to catch him.
It includes interviews from the cops involved, confidential informants of the Delhi Police, and even the people who knew Chandrakant to present a cross-section of the killer’s mind. At the risk of sounding vulgar, it would have been fascinating to hear the story from the butcher himself, something the makers couldn’t quite manage. Chandrakant did not join the taping due to jail rules and his family, naturally, refused to participate.
TV series like Indian Predator: The Butcher of Delhi
It is very much like other serial killer docuseries of recent vintage: Night Stalker: The Hunt For A Serial Killer, Ted Bundy: Falling For A Killer, Making A Murderer, etc.
Should you watch it or skip it?
Indian Predator: The Butcher of Delhi doesn’t pad its runtime with off-topic examinations of the time period or unnecessary biographical sketches. It talks about the investigation into one of the Indian capital city’s most confounding cases, and keeps viewers engaged.
I loved watching this TV series and I would highly recommend you all to watch it as well.
