5 best shows and movies on SonyLIV, Netflix and BookMyShow Stream

1. Shoplifters – Netflix

The winner of the 2018 Palme d’Or award, Shoplifters simply dives head-first into poverty and shows a made-up family who is on the edge struggling through life in Japan. It’s almost unbelievable how Shoplifters can be uplifting and depressing at the same time, but this brilliant piece of cinema is worth every minute you spend on it. With some moving performances by its ensemble, Shoplifters is a gem that shines brightly on Netflix right now.

2. A Simple Murder – Sony Liv

A comedy series set in what is a pretty dark storyline, A Simple Murder follows Manish who is assigned to kill someone. Things turn on its head when Manish accidentally kills the wrong person. With people close to the victim now out for revenge, Manish not only has to run away from his unhappy employers but also the victim’s vengeful grieving family and friends. A Simple Murder stars Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Sushant Singh and Priya Anand in pivotal roles.

3. Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota – Netflix

An action-comedy that is better than some of the biggest blockbuster mainstream Hindi films, Mard ko Dard Nahi Hota is proof of everything that is wrong with Bollywood right now. This fun ride deserves huge applause for its simple yet near-perfect execution. And that’s why streaming sites like Netflix are so important. Starring Abhimanyu Dasani, Radhika Madan, Mahesh Manjrekar and Gulshan Devaiah, Mard ko Dard Nahi Hota, which translates to a man who feels no pain, is basically just that. You’ll have a lot of fun watching this.

4. Mad Max: Fury Road – BookMyShow Stream

A high-octane action thriller set in a dystopian world where water is the most valuable currency. A runaway crew must fight Immortan Joe and his army as they look to escape from the dictator’s cruel lifestyle. An adrenaline rush of a film that you just cannot look away from, Mad Max: Fury Road is one of my favourite action films of all time. It stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in lead roles.

5. Ozark – Netflix

A show that is so intriguing and engaging that your weekend will zip past you, Ozark is a show about Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) who relocates his family from Chicago to a resort in Ozarks. But things turn on their head when a money-laundering scheme goes wrong for Jason who now has to be on the run from a drug cartel. How the family reconnects and finds strength in these difficult periods is what the show is all about.
