After hearing this Nakul get back on track to kill him self but this time that beggar gave him that powerful water and makes him immortal. That’s where story ends.

Overall its not that type of series which you expect from Amazon Prime. Story lacks power.

Just like Nakul regretted hiring a hitman, we regret to inform you that the Amazon series isn’t deserving of your time. (Sorry, not sorry) it was too fitting a title — Afsos — not to be used as a punchline.
