5 shows and movies on Alt Balaji, Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar
1. Bose: Dead/Alive – Alt Balaji
This highly rated web series stars Bollywood actoras iconic freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose. The show dwells a little more into the mystery surrounding his alleged death, a mystery that has probably intrigued us all over the years. This one season TV show is the perfect dose of drama and suspense you will need today.
2. Tanu Weds Manu – Netflix
A fun rom-com that stars R. Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut, Tanu Weds Manu is a story about an NRI doctor who comes to India in search of a bride and falls in love with Tanu during the process. While both the personalities are poles apart, Tanu asks for Manu’s help in eloping with her lover, which in a way brings the two together. Kangana Ranaut’s performance in this film is noteworthy and with her winning the national award last night for Manikarnika, this could be the perfect excuse to catch this film.
3. Neerja – Disney+ Hotstar
Based on the hijack of Pan Am flight 73 in 1986, the story follows the brave exploits of Neerja, a flight attendant who risks her life to stall the terrorists from attacking the passengers on board. Neerja’s story is one of history’s greatest acts of bravery and the movie does a good job in retelling those moments. Sonam Kapoor as Neerja gives her career-best performance and is a movie that you should watch if you haven’t.
4. Bling Empire – Netflix
We all love watching the fabulous lives of rich people and how they spend their money. That’s why shows like Keeping up with the Kardashians and Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives do so well. Following that trend is Bling Empire, a show about the wealthy and wild Asians and Asian Americans who love the glamour life filled with parties and drama. If you’re up for some mindless, guilt trippy show to indulge in, look no further.
5. Out of Love – Disney+ Hotstar
An Indian series set in the hills of Nilgiris, Out of Love is based on Doctor Foster by Mike Bartlett and is adapted by Hotstar. It is directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and stars the talented Purab Kohli and Rasika Duggal in lead roles.
