While Ghoomketu and Gulabo Sitabo makers had earlier announced their intention of going the OTT route, new players are joining the space every other day. On Tuesday, it was announced that the Janhvi Kapoor film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl will soon start streaming on Netflix.

Upload: Amazon Prime

Created by Gergg Daniels, Upload is quirky and fun, all rolled in one. Our verdict reads, "Self-driving cars. Phones that are essentially a hologram that snap into existence in the L between the forefinger and thumb. The promise of eternal life even after you are dead. These are the few salient features of Upload, a quirky, sci-fi-ish show that is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video."

Special Ops: Disney+Hotstar

Starring the likes of Kay Kay Menon and Karan Tacker, Special Ops has garnered rave reviews, especially with regard to its performances. Our verdict reads, "Care has been taken to humanise these soldiers, ‘jo ki wardi nahi pehante’. Menon trying to come to terms with his daughter dating and Pathak trying to take his family for Haj are some nice touches. But it’s not as tongue-in-cheek as Family Man was. Neither does it have the stunning cinematography of Bard Of Blood." Click here to know more.
