October is here. As 2020 crawls to a closure, doesn’t this year appear to be the shortest and the longest one yet, at the same time? The world outside is nowhere close to pre-pandemic days so it is better not to think about hopping to cinemas yet even if they are set to open this month.
Don’t fret, as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar and SonyLIV are going to leave you spoiled with sea of choices this month and make sure your weekends are spend binge watching away. Here are 10 new Hindi shows and movies set to release in October 2020:
1. Khaali Peeli:
When: Oct 2
Where: ZEE Studio
Starring Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday in lead roles, the movie will take you on a fun journey across Mumbai. The trailer of the movie shows the duo on the run from gangs who are out to get them.
The movie seems to be a typical cat-and-mouse chase that will remind you of the 80s movies. If you can handle the fake Mumbai-street accent voiced by the lead pair, then go for this one. Or else, skip!
2. Serious Men:
When: Oct. 2
This Manu Joseph’s book adaptation, directed by Sudhir Mishra and starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead, is a mystery in itself. The movie leaves you astonished, confused, amused, sad, disappointed and elated at several points.
