With Shailene’s Woodley’s character being the main in the show, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are not far behind.
Sacred Games-Season 2
Right from the first episode “Ashwathama” to the finale episode, Netflix Original Series Sacred Games had us on the edge of the every seat throughout season 1. The story revolves around a cop, mafia, Bollywood star, terrorists, politicians and every possible man in Bombay interweaved together in a twisted plot. Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing the lead role in Season 1, Sacred Games is no less than Narcos, The Crown or even The Break. We thank directors Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya for giving us characters like Ganesh Gaitonde, Sartaj Singh, Katekar, Kukoo and the gang of Gopalmath.
13 Reasons Why-Season 3
A teen drama started in 2017 by Netflix has caught everyone’s attention with every episode talking about one mighty reason why Hannah Baker took her own life. The series is based on Jay Asher’s novel with the same name. The series focus on teaching one goal to viewers-‘Be nice to people, you don’t know what they are dealing with.’ From peer pressure to drug abuse, the series cover all the throat wrenching issues that teens face in today’s modern world.
An Amazon Prime Exclusive, Mirzapur revolves around the story of Akhandanand Tripathi (played by Pankaj Tripathi ) who is a millionaire carpet exporter and the mafia don of Mirzapur. A well made and thrilling series, Mirzapur is set in India’s Hindi heartland and features Vikrant Massey, Ali Fazal and Divyendu Sharma as leads along with Pankaj Tripathi. We love the wickedly funny dialogue delivery given by these characters. A true power packed show in likes of Sacred Games.
Baahubali-Before the Beginning
A prequel to the ‘Baahubali’ series, the show revolves around the rise of Sivagami and is based on Anand Neelakantan’s book. With spectacular sets and epic story-telling, you will get to see the vivid transformation of Sivagami from a rebellious and vengeful girl to a wise queen. Power, politics and intrigue find themselves juxtaposed against the rise of Mahishmati — from being a city-state to an empire. The first season will feature 9 episodes with Netflix, SS Rajamouli and Arka Media Works in collaboration.
