From this February, cinema halls in most of the cities are opening with 100 percent occupancy for the first time pandemic hit us. However, it seems that smallscreens will continue to keep us hooked up for a long time to come or may be, who knows, forever. Well, good things too do come to end, right?
Various OTTs have given us enough to keep us occupied and entertained during 2020. And they are not anywhere near to slowing down from churning more interesting content to watch. Here are some of the best Indian web series and movies to watch in February 2021:
1. Family Man Season 2:
When: Feb. 12

Yes, the wait is finally over and this Manoj Bajpai-starrer hit series is coming back with its second season this month.

Why and how that happened and what happens next should be a treat to watch.
