This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to download this playlist

The download starts normally but then, only the specific video gets downloaded and not the whole playlist. I have downloaded entire playlist in the past but this is a particular playlist the Youtube-dl doesn't seem to download in its entirety. I also tried -

youtube-dl -i $URL
youtube-dl --yes-playlist $URL
youtube-dl --playlist-start=1 --playlist-end= 35 $URL

What is the solution to this problem?

You are actually downloading the video at index 1. Remove the index parameter so you can download the whole playlist. Follow the link Don't forget to add --yes-playlist

 $ youtube-dl --yes-playlist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ez10ADR_gM&list=PL8dPuuaLjXtPNZwz5_o_5uirJ8gQXnhEO
