One Mic Stand: Amazon Prime Video

In every episode on One Mic Stand, a professional comedian opens the show followed by a behind the scenes video where they prep and talk about the craft of comedy with the celebrity. This is followed by the celebrity’s performance in front of a live audience. All episodes are independent of each other so you can pick anyone to start with but my humble suggestion is, start with the last episode featuring Shashi Tharoor and Kunal Kamra. Read More.

Servant: Apple TV+

Servant is about a couple Sean (Toby Kebbell) and Dorothy Turner (Lauren Ambrose), who welcome a babysitter Leanne (Nell Tiger Free) into their home in Philadelphia for their infant Jericho. But the catch is Jericho died when he was only 13-weeks old, and the creepy doll that now sleeps in his crib is actually a part of Dorothy’s transitory object therapy. Sean is well aware of the situation in his house, but Dorothy is still undergoing the healing process, hence the doll. But Leanne doesn’t flinch for a second when she is handed over a doll instead of a human baby. So what’s the catch here? Read More.

It has to be said that watching this film felt like a compliment to the audience. It’s rare to see a filmmaker who has faith in his audience to understand the film, and appreciate it.

To All the Boys 2 PS I Still Love You: Netflix

What this romantic drama does get right are the performances. Lead stars Lana Condor, Noah Centineo and Jordan Fisher know their characters inside out, and they don’t feel too old for the part, as it happens often with high school romances. Lana especially shines as the somewhat reticent but sassy-when-poked Lara Jean. Read More.

Bard of Blood: Netflix

Emraan Hashmi is a formerly disgraced agent Kabir Anand aka Adonis (wonder what they were thinking here), who is called upon a three-person mission to rescue four Indian spies from Balochistan. There is sensitive politics at play here, since we know Balochistan has been under the scanner for claiming independence and the pressure that it has had to face from neighbouring countries while doing so. But despite its cinematic liberty and ultimately pitching Emraan’s Kabir as the ultimate Indian supporter of a free Balochistan, the show does manage to keep you on the edge of your seat.

To know our take on the show, click here.
