This series depicts various forms of deceit (Chaal in Hindi) through the adaptations of four Shakespearean plays- Romeo and Juliet, Merchant of Venice, Macbeth, and Hamlet. The story explores how deceit can change the course of a person’s life. Every adaptation is a 5 to 7-episode series, in which through our various characters coming from different parts of India, we delve into deceit that suggests malevolence. The four adaptations have characters that mislead themselves while deluding others with biased reasoning and biased recollections. Through their acts—big or small, cruel or kind- they lead other characters on a path of downfall, ultimately marking their own doom.
