CONFUSED: WHAT TO SEE ON OTT

After the hectic month of February and March, if you are confused about what to see in the Hindi Web series the following description might be helpful.

There are too many options for those who are passionate about thrillers. Though I have not seen all the common thing I found is, a murder happens, there is an investigation, a few suspects, some subplots and all weaved in a pattern. Depending on the direction and execution some are good and some just a time pass.

1. RUDRA: THE EDGE OF DARKNESS

It is a psychological thriller where DCP Rudraveer Singh gets into the psyche of the culprits to crackdown the case.

s film star, who suddenly disappears without a trace.

4. MITHIYA

The story revolves around a Hindi professor, who accuses her student of plagiarising an essay. This accusation escalates into psychological warfare where two women try to outwit each other and neither of them is willing to give up. This conflict lit the drama into an intricate web of suspicion, revenge that lures curiosity.

Episode:6

5. BESTSELLER

Here two plots are intertwined. The first plot is about Meetu Mathur(Shruti Hasan) who has a tragic past. Tahir Wazir ( Arjan Bajwa)used it for his next novel. Stealing Meetu’s manuscript and trying to pass it off as his own turns his life upside down. In the second plot, Tahir’s wife Mayanka(Gauaha r Khan) who is an advertising company owner appoints Parth (Satyajeet Dubey) as an intern at her workplace and started getting closer. These two plots are merged into one after 4th episode. What happens next is the plotline.

6. BLOODY BROTHERS

It is a story of two brothers and a test of their relationship. Driving home late, they run over an old man. Trying to cover up a hit and run case they get entangled with gangsters and blackmailers. Will the brothers get away with it or not is the plot.

7. UNDEKHI

Undekhi is a crime thriller full of suspense, action and drama. The plot is that a dancer is killed by an influential businessman Atwal. The dancer’s sister wants revenge but Atwals wants her dead too. A cop comes looking for that girl and wants to take her alive back. Rest is the cat and mouse chase.

The second season starts exactly at the same point where season one ended. There is a new wedding and a new mess again in season two. In addition, there is a new plot, a war between two business tycoons. All the characters and plots are complicatedly knit and ensure the third season of the show. The performance of the actors is impressive and makes it worth watching.

Season:2

Episode 10+ 10

Streaming on: Sony LIV

8. ROCKET BOYS

This is not a thriller. If you want to explore the world of science, this is the right choice. This series covers span of twenty years in the life of Dr Homi Jahangir Bhabha and Dr Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai. They both are joined by one more ignited mind in the 5th episode APJ Abdul Kalam. The trio successfully take us to the world of India’s Atomic and Space program. This series managed to dive deep into that era in the most entertaining way and retell history with a human touch. This is a well-researched work and absolutely a masterpiece.

Episode:8
