Auto Shankar: Review
It’s a Tamil web series that has also been dubbed into Hindi and it is available on the Zee5. It was released on 23rd April 2019, Casting Appani Sarath in the lead role as Auto Shankar. The Lead character has performed exceptionally well for the role and made it a notable work for the series and even himself.
The Series mainly moves around the Life of Shankar and I felt that the supporting cast could have done better in terms of the dialogues and roles. The makers have made 10 episodes of this series for this season. There is no profound for next season as Auto Shankar is being shown hanging in the very first episode of the series.
The 10 episodes in the series are timely 25-35 minutes each and combine it would take you almost 3-4 hours to binge-watch the whole series. The first few episodes of the series give the complete introduction to the life of Shankar and it feels like thrill and suspense both are missing or the first few episodes but later five episodes that are episodes 6-10 has enough amount of suspense and thriller to make a series a worth watching series.
