New world dramas – details

Laakhon Mein Ek S2 Amazon Prime [Available now]
“Dr Shreya is posted in Sitlapur village to conduct a cataract camp.

Dr Shreya keeps fighting the system, but the question remains whether she will change the system or will the system change her?”. Indian series created by Indian stand-up comedian, writer and YouTuber Biswa Kalyan Rath which is labelled as a Prime Exclusive series.
