(Last Updated On: May 11, 2020)

With 24 hour internet available at the finger touch, don’t you often think you have exhausted almost every cool content on the net? Well guess what, that’s not always the case. As the world of internet entertainment booms, we are literally getting showered with endless strings of entertainment, so much so, it becomes hard to keep a tab.

While some of the web series and originals come with a bang and much fanfare, there are many that arrive silently and we don’t get a hint about, among which some are absolutely brilliant and binge-watch worthy. Here some lesser-known, recently-released and absolutely brilliant must-watch content of Netflix and Prime: 

  1. Taj Mahal 1989 (Netflix):

Filled with dollops of nostalgia, this web series will take you 90’s kids to a journey down the memory lane like never before. The series revolves around four couples of varying ages based in Lucknow during 1989, their lives intertwined. It gives a wonderful sneak peek into the world back then and how people used to maneuver through their lives without the presence of mobiles, internet and of course, social media. 

The cast is seasoned and apt with legends like Neeraj Kabi, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Danish Hussain and Sheeba Chaddha along with some promising new faces like Anud Singh Dhaka, Anshul Chauhan, Paras Priyadarshan and Shirin Sewani. Written and directed by Pushpendra Nath Mishra, the series will hook you in no time and you will find yourself clicking ‘watch next episode’ every time. 

IMDb Rating: 7.5

2. Afsos (Amazon Prime):

You are missing something if you have not watched Afsos yet. The series, that revolves around the life of a suicidal man who hires a professional to get himself killed, is a perfect example of dark comedy at its best. The series will make you laugh, pity, empathize as well as somewhere relate to the character. 

Start Afsos with a good time in hand because you will end up watching all the episodes back to back. The series stars Gulshan Devaiah, Heeba Shah and Anjali Patil among others. It is directed by Anubhuti Kashyap.

3. Yeh Ballet (Netflix):

Just released on Netflix, Yeh Ballet seems to be another surprise package in offering in the form of simplistic telling of an incredible true story inspired by the story of dancers Amir Shah and Manish Chauhan. The movie is based on the two young protagonists (one of them played by Manish himself) from the not-so-privileged section of society who find their outlet that has largely been somehow limited to the privileged.

Apart from the protagonists is Saul, Israel-born temperamental ballet teacher who is somewhere between being too repulsive and being too amiable. Director Sooni Taraporevala has seamlessly slide through issues like class-divide, religion-based discrimination, “you’re-too-poor-to-dream” attitude of society. It’s a must,must watch if you have not started it yet.

4. Amit Tandon: Family Tandoncies (Netflix):

Set to stream on Netflix from Feb. 28, this is being deemed as ‘Netflix ka pehla Hindi stand up special.’ Amit Tandon has been a well-known name in the world of stand-up comedy and we are glad that Netflix’s first Hindi comedy special in his one.

In his 72-minute special, the 44-year-old comic will spill the beans and enlighten us on the laws of attraction, romance and his trials and tribulations with marriage and kids.

Netflix announced the comedy special way back in October, which included Tandon as one of eight Indian comedians alongside other established names in Vir Das, Kenny Sebastian, Kanan Gill, and Kaneez Surka, and rising figures in Comicstaan finalist Prashasti Singh, TLC’s Queens of Comedy winner Niveditha Prakasham, and Comicstaan 2 contestant Supriya Joshi.
