5 best shows and movies on Voot Select, Amazon Prime Video and BookMyShow Stream
1. Thappad – Amazon Prime Video
Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad was one of the last movies to release before the lockdown and boy did it have some impact. Powered by Tapsee Pannu’s effortless performance, Thappad can be the story of any Indian woman. It’s a movie that is the need of the hour and without being too preachy, Thappad talks a lot about the dynamics between men and women in a marriage and what needs to change right now.
2. Asur – Voot Select
One of India’s most acclaimed web series last year, Asur is the perfect dose of crime solving that will get you hooked right away. The story follows a forensic investigator who along with his mentor at the Central Bureau of Investigation tracks down a serial killer. Cleverly written, Asur never goes overboard with the storyline and is extremely realistic which significantly adds to its experience.
3. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – Amazon Prime Video
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is set in the 1950s and follows the titular character through New York’s Upper West Side. She has the ‘perfect’ husband, two kids and an elegant house. While life seems to be content, she discovers a hidden talent of stand-up comedy. This revelation changes her life as she tries to climb her way up the ladder in the comedy world and dreams of getting a spot in the ‘Tonight Show’ couch. The series features Alex Borstein and Michael Zegen in pivotal roles.
4. Zack Snyder’s Justice League – BookMyShow Stream
After a three year wait, DC fans finally got an opportunity to witness the epic superhero showdown that they have all been waiting for. Now if you are on the fence about whether a four-hour movie about magical boxes is really worth your time, we can tell you that the director’s cut is a much better proposition than its original theatrical release. With a four-hour run time, think of it as a four-episode TV show.
5. Inception – Amazon Prime Video
Distractions can come in all forms, and a classic Nolan film may just be the one for you. It may not make you laugh but Inception with one of the most complex plots will reel you in and make you forget all about what’s happening in your life. Inception is about a group of dream travellers who have a mission in hand to enter a criminal’s dream, only for them to be offered money to dive into his rival’s son’s dream. Inception stars Leonardo Di Caprio, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy in pivotal roles.
