Status of the problem of the neutrino mass and lepton mixing will be presented in view of the latest experimental results. It will be argued that solution of this problem can be in the so called hidden sector of theory which can also be the origin of sterile neutrinos, dark matter, dark energy, etc. Scenario that realizes such a possiblity includes Grand unification, the Planck-scale hidden sector with certain symmetry, and the neutrino “portal” between the visible and Hidden sectors.
