Voot Select premiered its latest web series Illegal recently. Indianexpress.com’s review of the show read, “Each episode has interesting plot twists. The courtroom sequences, where a rape case is being debated, is devoid of theatrics. There is simply an argument with both the lawyers citing the laws and presenting their evidence. Despite being a legal drama, the writing never gets heavy. With 30-minute episodes, it is an easy binge-watch which doesn’t require you to pay too much attention.”

Forgotten is South Korean a mystery-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seats throughout its 109 minutes run. The film follows Jin Seok who witnesses his brother’s kidnapping. Although the brother returns after 19 days with no memory, Jin Seok starts to realise that his entire family is acting strange, which leads him to seek the truth.

Padayappa: Amazon Prime Video

The war of sexes has never been so entertaining. The tale of a headstrong lady going on a rampage after being spurned by the man of her dreams never gets boring. Of course, it is Rajinikanth who sold the tickets, but the movie belonged to Ramya Krishnan. Before Sivagami Devi, she ruled the screens as Nilambari.

The Terror season 1: Amazon Prime Video

Horror The Terror's season 1 adapts Dan Simmons' 2007 novel of the name. Jared Harris stars as Captain Francis Crozier, Ciarán Hinds as Rear Admiral Sir John Franklin and Tobias Menzies as Commander James Fitzjames. They are all naval officers in a failed expedition to the Arctic. The actual expedition (yes, the novel is a fictionalised account of a real expedition) was led by Captain Franklin (played by Ciarán Hinds in the show) and did not come back. Not one man among 129 who went came back. Dan Simmons's novel gave a supernatural reason behind the doom, so does the series. It is a slow burn horror thriller that ends with a narrative crescendo.

Deadwood: The Movie: Hotstar

Deadwood: The Movie is a sequel film to HBO’s iconic western TV series Deadwood created by David Milch that ran for three seasons from 2004 to 2006.

Bojack Horseman: Netflix

This American adult animated web television series tells the story of BoJack Horseman (voiced by Will Arnett), a washed-up star of a 1990s sitcom who plans his return to celebrity relevance with an autobiography. The show is regarded by some as one of the greatest animated television series of all time. It stands out for its realistic take on dealing with depression, trauma, addiction, self-destructive behavior, racism, sexism, sexuality, and the human condition. The makers of the show decided to end the series with the sixth season and it is a definite must-watch. Fair warning: It gets very real.
