From new seasons of our favorite shows to brand new exciting launches, 2020 is already turning up great (at least on streaming platforms). Since there is so much content to choose from, we are sure that most of the times, you end up wasting by surfing endlessly what to watch and what to skip. Well, no more worries as Ourtitbits is here with a compiled list of best Hindi web series of February 2020 you should not miss:
Jamtara: Sabka Number Ayega (Netflix):
Already streaming, this web series seems to have come out of nowhere as it is filled with complete surprises. Based on real life events, Jamtara shows how a group of small-town juvenile young men are running a lucrative phishing operation, until a corrupt politician wants a slice for himself too in the game as a newly appointed young SP is determined to stop the crime forever. Watch the trailer right here.
The ensemble cast here, Amit Sial, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Aksha Pardasany, Sparsh Srivastava, Monika Panwar and Anshumaan Pushkar, is fresh, promising, convincing and along with direction of Soumendra Padhi, has made the series gritty and riveting. Although the web series does looses the plot a couple of times in between with a few open threads, overall it is very engaging and a good watch.
IMDb Rating: 7.6

The Forgotten Army (Prime Video):
Streaming on Amazon Prime Video, The Forgotten Army is set in in the early 1940s and deals with the formation of the Indian National Army (INA) in Singapore and their subsequent march to India. The series is the digital debut of director Kabir Khan of “Bajrangi Bhaijan” and “Ek Thha Tiger” fame and stars Sunny Kaushal, Sharvari Wagh, Tj Bhanu and Rohit Chaudhary.
Watch the trailer here.
Interestingly, Khan had tackled the story in 1999 with a six-part eponymous docu-series which could not create much impact then and he reportedly has been trying to revisit the topic ever since. His dream seems to have finally come true, over two decades later, since this web series definitely offers a grand look at the INA for their valiant efforts to the horrors they faced. A decent watch for this weekend if you have missed it somehow.

Life Is Good: Stand Up Special By Ashish Shakya (Prime Video):
AIB’s regular and popular face Ashish Shakya’s first ever stand-up comedy special is set to stream on Amazon Prime Video from Feb. 7.

As per Shakya, “It’s funny, it’s chill, it’s relatable AF – it won’t change your life but you’ll laugh, get some sweet dopamine hits and then go to bed with your someone special.”
