Directed by Debaloy Bhattacharya, the Amazon Original series, P.I. Meena, features Tanya Maniktala as Meena, along with Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Jisshu Sengupta, Vinay Pathak and Zarina Wahab in pivotal roles.

Prime Video has announced the worldwide premiere of the crime-detective series on November 3. The Amazon Original series follows the edge-of-your-seat investigation by a young and troubled private detective who gets drawn into a whirlwind of deception and unending conspiracies, while being torn between her life and her dogged dedication to solving an unsolvable mystery.

Created by Arindam Mitra, the eight-episode series will premiere exclusively in India and across 240 countries and territories worldwide in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.

“With each title at Prime Video, we envision and endeavor to not only entertain our audience, but also take them on a journey that captivates and engages them to the greatest extent. Crime investigation dramas are one of the most thriving and promising sub-genres,” said Nikhil Madhok, head of Hindi Originals, Prime Video. “This is another addition to our rich library of content, offering a compelling, female-led narrative that promises to keep the audience hooked to their screens until the very climax—and probably even after. I’m certain our customers across age groups and content preferences will thoroughly enjoy the mystery, intrigue and twists and turns that unfold when an unrelenting private investigator delves deeper in her efforts to try and unravel the mystery behind suspicious events.”

Writer and creator Arindam Mitra added, “We set out to create a story that transports the audience into the dark, gritty, and maze-like world of crime through the lens of private investigator Meena. We are proud to have achieved such a strong, female-protagonist driven story, complemented by slick direction.”

“I have always been overtly drawn to, and enticed by, investigative thrillers. With P.I. Meena being my first Hindi project, I couldn’t have hoped for a better way to mark my foray into the space. While it is the director’s job to bring a story to life, it is a Herculean task to translate the pages of a script to the screens for the audience. I am grateful for the opportunity and support from everyone involved in this fulfilling journey of making P.I. Meena as we have visualized it. And now, we wait with bated breath to see the response of the audience to our labor of love,” said director Debaloy Bhattacharya.
