It’s the weekend and if you’re not in front of the TV with a tall glass of cocktail to help you unwind, then how are you even enjoying your downtime? Just to help you out, here are five shows and movies for you to watch on Sony LIV, Disney+ Hotstar and Apple TV+:
5 best shows and movies on Sony LIV, Disney+ Hotstar and Apple TV+
1. Falcon and the Winter Soldier – Disney+ Hotstar
Marvel calls it a six-hour MCU movie. And to be honest, that is really the most accurate description you can get for this series. The story follows Falcon and the Winter Soldier after the events of Avengers: Endgame where they need to live in a world where there isn’t that beacon of hope and also tackle the grief in their lives after the events of the blip. Six action-packed episodes with a few characters from the MCU returning, this show will definitely rope you in and keep you hooked.
2. Coda – Apple TV+
Another stirring addition to this list, this time it’s Apple TV+’s Coda which was recently released on the platform. The story follows a deaf family from Gloucester in Massachusetts and the only hearing member of the family, Ruby. She is the point of contact for everything in the family and at the tender age of 17, Ruby takes care of the family business while trying to maintain her academic curriculum. But she eventually discovers a passion that encourages her to explore more. Coda is beautiful and is a movie that you should sit down and watch with the whole family. It stars Emilia Jones and Marlee Maitlin in the lead.
3. Ford vs Ferrari – Disney+ Hotstar
A movie that received a bunch of nominations during last year’s Academy Awards and is frankly a lot of fun, Ford vs Ferrari promises a really entertaining watch. A fictional retelling of the 24 hours Le Mans race during the 1960s, two of the biggest car manufacturers are pitted against each other for racing’s ultimate glory. Will Ford be able to stop Ferrari’s dominance? The movie stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon in pivotal roles.
4. Maharani – SonyLIV
A story many of you must be familiar with, Maharani is loosely based on Bihar’s political landscape of the 1990s. This fictional tale follows Rani Bharati (Huma Quereshi), a homemaker and the wife of Bihar’s Chief Minister Bheema (Sohum Shah). All she wants is to go back to her village when her husband resigns from his post. But things turn on its head Bheema names her as his successor. With party workers unhappy and the society skeptical, Rani must now navigate her life under the public lens.
5. Laxmii – Disney+ Hotstar
Akshay Kumar stars in this remake of a hit Tamil movie, where he plays Aasif, a skeptic who visits his wife’s parents’ house. Although he strongly disagrees that the place is haunted, certain events on a fateful night end up in Aasif getting possessed by the spirit of a vengeful transgender. Laxmii didn’t particularly receive the best reviews but if you’re into loud, comical Bollywood movies, then this may just be right up your alley.
