Jagame Thandhiram: Netflix

Dhanush’s gangster drama Jagame Thandhiram premiered on Netflix on Friday. In her review of the movie, The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote, “Dhanush-in-veshti strides across sleety England streets in slo-mo, doing Rajini but wisely keeping it low key, channelling the street-smart, lovable scamp he specialises in, when not going all out gangsta familiar to us from such cracking films as Vada Chennai. Serviceable. Just about.”

Sherni: Amazon Prime Video

Amit Masurkar directorial Sherni stars Vidya Balan, Brijendra Kala, Vijay Raaz, Sharat Saxena, Mukul Chadha and Ila Arun. Balan plays an IFS (Indian Forest Service) officer trying to maintain the balance between humans and wildlife. The official synopsis of Sherni reads, “A jaded forest officer (Vidya Balan) leads a team of trackers and locals intending to capture an unsettled tigress, while battling intense obstacles and pressures, both natural and man-made.” For Masurkar, the film is an “intricately-layered story, exploring the complex issues of conflict between humankind and animals.”

Hospital Playlist: Season 2: Netflix

After ending on a cliffhanger, the Korean drama Hospital Playlist returned with Season 2 on June 17. It stars Jo Jung-suk, Jung Kyung-ho, Yoo Yeon-seok, Jeon Mi-do and Kim Dae-myung. The series chronicles the lives of five doctors, Lee Ik-jun (Jo Jung-suk), Ahn Jeong-won (Yoo Yeon-seok), Kim Jun-wan (Jung Kyung-ho), Yang Seok-hyeong (Kim Dae-myung), and Chae Song-hwa (Jeon Mi-do), who have been friends since medical school. While they are prolific surgeons, they have also got on a band on the side.

Loki: Disney Plus Hotstar

The second episode of Tom Hiddleston starrer Loki dropped during the week on Disney Plus Hotstar, and it deepened the mystery that was introduced in the first episode. After getting his orientation at Time Variance Authority (TVA), Loki is recruited by Mobius to hunt for the ‘Variant Loki’ who is causing chaos in the sacred timeline and has escaped their arrest on numerous occasions.

In his 4.5 star review of Luca, indianexpress.com’s Kshitij Rawat wrote, “Luca is a celebration of childhood friendships, but it also tackles the theme of acceptance of the ‘other’. While the film makes it clear that the bond between Luca and Alberto is platonic, their relationship and the horrified reaction by humans to their true appearance can be interpreted as echoing the experiences of the LGBTQ community. Luca is a film that is open to multiple interpretations — sea monsters can serve as the metaphor for any marginalised group. It is a continual delight, a film that will make you feel warm, fuzzy and wanting for more.”
