Shahana Goswami plays a cop in Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming supernatural thriller, The Last Hour (2021). Directed by Amit Kumar, the series follows two cops — Arup Singh, played by Sanjay Kapoor, and Lipika Bora, played by Goswami — who try to solve some mysterious deaths in a Himalayan town with the help of a shaman played by Karma Takapa.

Talking about the show, Goswami said, “When I read the script, I was really in awe. It felt like I was reading a thriller book which I couldn’t put down. I really liked how something as complex as shamanic traditions was [woven] in, in a beautiful and subtle way.”

Goswami said this is the first time she is playing a police officer on screen. “I have never played a cop in my entire career," she said. "So when I was offered the part, that was a big draw as well. I hadn't ever held a gun and got to hold a real gun! This show gave me the opportunity to tick that off my list.”

The Last Hour, which also stars Shaylee Krishen, Raima Sen, Robin Tamang and Mandakini Goswami, will be premiered on Amazon Prime Video on 14 May.

The series has been created, written and produced by Amit Kumar and Anupama Minz, and executive produced by Amit Kumar and Asif Kapadia, an Academy award-winner and four-time BAFTA award-winner.
