Leila premieres


Set in the late 2040s, Leila takes place in Aryavarta — Sanskrit for the abode of the noble ones — where society has been divided along with the tenet of purity. The series is a more insidious and a starker version of India, where the necessary democratic freedoms don’t exist for those that violate accepted new norms.

This Netflix’s original series from India is based on journalist-turned-author Prayaag Akbar’s dystopian 2017 novel of the same name.

All episodes are available on Netflix.
