Description

Indian Noir (@indiannoir on Instagram & Twitter) is a critically acclaimed, chart-topping podcast featuring thrilling crime and horror audio stories set in India, featuring Indian characters. Indian Noir has been featured in the CBC, The Hindu, Times of India, ABC National Radio, Mashable, Reader's Digest India, Men's World, Your Story and other media outlets. It has won rave reviews on major podcasting platforms from critics and listeners alike and is a chart-topper on the global Apple & Spotify Podcast Fiction and Drama charts. It also has blockbuster ratings on JioSaavn, Gaana and other major Indian audio streaming apps.

Indian Noir is voiced by Nikesh Murali, a professional voice actor and an Amazon bestselling, Commonwealth Short Story Prize and DWL Story Prize-winning writer. Nikesh has also received honourable mentions for the Katha Short Story Prize twice. Nikesh was among the top creative talents from India (including Amitabh Bachchan, Karan Johar, Anil Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Tabu, Nawazuddin Siddiqui) selected to create original shows for Audible Suno.

Nikesh is the author of a multi-award winning, Amazon bestselling short story collection 'The Killing fields'. His novel 'His Night Begins', which was praised by Crime Fiction Lover magazine for its 'terse action scenes and brutal energy', was released to critical acclaim and earned him the tag of the 'most hardboiled of Indian crime writers' from World Literature Today Journal.

Nikesh is also an internationally acclaimed spoken poetry artist. His readings of some of the greatest poets of this generation on Twitter & Instagram (@indiannoir) are viral sensations, which have been viewed over a million times. His work was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in Poetry in 2007.

A new series begins... The Trimurtis - Brahma, Vishu and Shiva, have shielded the domain of humans away from the rest of the universe; using their combined meditative powers to hold evil forces at bay. They have dedicated their eternal dreaming towards protecting their human devotees, which means no one can hail them, no one can conduct penance to invoke their help, no one can draw on their powers. They were lost to the rest of the universe.   But the universe was not just the domain of the precious humans who worshipped the Trimurtis. There were other worlds and other creations, some of them were even humanoid in their aspect. These helpless beings were exposed to the brutality of the vile legions of Asuras and were creatures called Danavas. Their oppressors were angelic and demonic entities that sought to conquer and subjugate planets and their population. Empire builders who sought glory in the expansion of their noxious base of power and the promulgation of their heretical beliefs in false gods.   Only the mercy of Indra, the King of Indraloka and his vast but finite forces stand between freedom and tyranny.   Angels and demons and mythic monsters battle across the stars for dominion over vast sectors of the universe, and we witness it unfold through the eyes of Shaurya Company, the most decorated retinue in the armies of Indra, the Lord of the Heavens.   Part military fiction, part epic fantasy – this series will explore how friendship, courage and the willingness to sacrifice for the greater good can keep eternal darkness at bay.

I had a very different assumption about horror and thriller podcasts before. But this show and Nikesh changed that. As soon as I started listening this podcast I was totally immersed and binged watched multiple episodes at once. The easily consumable format makes it more bingy. Most importantly the writing is superb and how can I not mention the gripping voice performance by Nikesh. You got yourself another fan sir. Thanks for producing this amazing podcast.
