The Forgotten Well is a fascinating online serie that offers some of the best serials from the Indian subcontinent. Set in the 16th century, this is based on the life of Captain Sunil Rawat. He was a prominent personality in his day and his contributions are remembered today with a series of movies that have come up recently. A notable character in one of these movies is the bounty hunter Preneel Khan who has modernized ways of hunting and gets the job done. So what kind of stories does the online serie tell? Well, that depends entirely on the choice of the viewer.
In this movie titled as Forgotten Well, the story revolves around the life of Sunil Rawat who is a superstar personality. The bounty hunter known as Preneel Khan is posted at the Lake District of England. There he becomes the protector of the lake's mafia families against all law enforcing agencies. The movie begins with him tracking down and then capturing a terrorist. Later on we learn that Khan was once a devoted follower of Count Dracula. Now, he is sworn to protect the mystic town of Meryem, from vampires as well as from Islamic terrorists.
The online movie serie offers a close up look at the life of a celebrity who lives in the spotlight. It depicts how he interacts with the people around him. It shows how he forms strong bonds with his loyal men and with the various officials and guards assigned to keep an eye on him. In the end, you realize that he was always meant to be something more than a superstar.
This is the latest in a series of vampire flicks being launched exclusively on the Internet. There are another serie called Ashtanga and another about a sadistic doctor. All these online films are directed by S.S. Rajamouli. This is followed by the popular vampire thriller Van Helsing.
People will definitely find this one intriguing. I especially like the blend of reality and fantasy that seem to be somewhat absent in the average vampire flick. In a way, it makes me wonder how they managed to create such characters. The storyline is well-paced and fast-moving. There are a few moments that will leave you breathless.
Another good thing about this online film is that it doesn't attempt to reinvent the wheel. Everything is done just as it is supposed to be done, just with a twist that makes the audience think that there has been some kind of miracle. That is what online movies are all about - a bit of magic. It is refreshing to see something that has not been made into a movie. That is what I love about them.
