what to watch online Here’s what you can watch on streaming platforms today.

With people locked up inside their homes, streaming giants like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+Hotstar, AltBalaji, Voot Select, ZEE5, MX Player and SonyLIV are in a race to churn out new content to keep the audience engaged.

The past week saw Chris Hemsworth’s Extraction, Chris Evans’ Defending Jacob and Lara Dutta’s Hundred finding many takers.

In her review of Extraction, Shubhra Gupta wrote, “There’s not much space in a Hemsworth-produced film for too many other faces, but still, the desi contingent does get a look-in: Hooda as the not-quite-sure-which-side-he’s-on is watchable as always, Jaiswal as the terrified companion-on-the-run settles into his groove after an initial fumble or two, Tripathi comes in for a flash. Painyuli, as the baddie with a penchant for chopped fingers, gets a couple of stand-out scenes, with his young slumdog-in-training, the interestingly-scarred Rikame. These two turn on real menace between them.”

She added, “The rest is the familiar wham-bam-bam-bam escape fantasy. Stands to reason because of all its Marvel connections. But then Extraction never set out to be any other kind of film. And for what it is, right now, in these lockdown times, it does what it needs to: where the good guy, even if he is a white first-worlder saving the slummy third world, one bullet at a time, comes out on top.”

Guilty: Netflix

Starring Kiara Advani in the lead role, Guilty is streaming on Netflix. The Indian Express' Ektaa Malik gave the film 2 stars and wrote, "The problem with Guilty is not the subject matter or the premise. Rather a mainstream film on the given matter, in a post #metoo world would have helped take the conversation forward. But it’s the other infractions and the rather insipid treatment that lets you down. We get that the writers wished to reflect that strong, independent, expressive women shouldn’t be slut-shamed and that a no is a no but the way they bumble their way through it leaves much to be desired. Not once do we feel any empathy for any of the characters. Kiara Advani is reduced to the ‘tortured-artistic-creative’ types, and Tanu Sharma, in her ill-fitting clothes is a poor caricature of the small- town-girl with big dreams."

Never Have I Ever: Netflix

Created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, Never Have I Ever is a high school drama that follows the life of Devi Vishwakumar. The Indian Express' review of Never Have I Ever read, "What sets Never Have I Ever apart is the self-absorbed protagonist. Vishwakumar is sooo wrapped in her quest for the coolest jock in school, that she at times struggles to find any empathy from the audience. But that’s what teenage high school girl drama is supposed to be like. It helps that Vishwakumar, played by debutante Maitreyi Ramakrishnan looks the part to the T, right up to her unthreaded forehead. She is completely believable as she has loud arguments with her doctor mother Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan), who is now struggling to raise a teenaged daughter all by herself. There is also an overachieving cousin Kamala to contend with. Throw in grief and mourning in the equation, and you would ideally have a complex, layered look of the life of an average teenager."
