For simplicity’s sake, consider Money Heist and how dull it would be without the interpersonal equations. The Believers is not Money Heist in terms of its storytelling but may well turn out to get the kind of viewership Money Heist got because of how rooted the plot is and how engaging the storytelling is. The story is based in Thailand and it shows a side of the place that most people weren’t really aware of.

The religious side of the country and how much it spends in the form of donations to its temples. The series is directed by Wattanapong Wongwan and created by Aummaporn Phandintong, and it took these two to bring out something fresh from the house of Netflix which, let’s face it was getting repetitive in its storytelling. The story has many plots and undertones but one thing that remains constant in the series is the element of thrill that is continuously maintained.
