Loki: Disney Plus Hotstar

Starring Tom Hiddleston in the lead role, Disney Plus Hotstar series Loki continues the story of perhaps one of MCU’s most popular characters. While the God of Mischief died in Avengers: Infinity War, the character got another lease of life during Avengers: Endgame as the Avengers visited the timeline of Battle of New York where Loki was being held captive. The events of this MCU series kick off from that moment, and the Loki we see here is the one who vanished with the Tesseract. The first episode of the series has received an overwhelming response. If you are a fan of MCU, you must not miss Loki. The show also stars Owen Wilson as Mobius M Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer and Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15.

Indori Ishq: MX Player

The nine-episode drama stars Ritvik Sahore and Vedika Bhandari in the lead roles. It is a story of heartbreak but with a twist. The series aims to raise the question: Why are rules of love different for girls and boys? It is the story of a young boy who moves to Mumbai from Indore and suffers heartbreak after he is cheated on by his girlfriend.

Those Who Wish Me Dead: BookMyShow Stream

The action-thriller, starring Angelina Jolie in the lead role, is directed by Taylor Sheridan. According to indianexpress.com’s Kshitij Rawat, “Those Who Wish Me Dead is a capable action-thriller that is entertaining and well-acted but is also admittedly a bit garden-variety. If you are looking for something fresh or profound, there are other options. But if you just want to have a good time, you can’t go wrong with this one.”

Sunflower: ZEE5

The residents of the housing society Sunflower are in a fix after a resident is murdered. Everyone living in the society, including Sonu Singh (Sunil Grover) and Dr Ahuja (Mukul Chadda), is a suspect. Now, it is on inspectors Tambe (Girish Kulkarni) and Digendra (Ranvir Shorey) to find out who has committed the crime. Don’t enter the series expecting a great mystery thriller, but if you are willing to meet some well-carved characters, do watch the series.

Lupin: Part 2: Netflix

Netflix’s hit French series Lupin has returned with the remaining episodes. The mystery thriller had a cliffhanger ending to the first part. Assane Diop is expected to complete his revenge mission in Part 2. Created by George Kay and François Uzan, the series stars Nicole Garcia, Clotilde Hesme, Ludivine Sagnier, Antoine Gouy, Shirine Boutella and Soufiane Guerrab.

Skater Girl: Netflix

Skater Girl is the story of a teenage girl Prerna living in a small village of Rajasthan. She is bound by tradition and duty towards her parents but develops a fondness for skating. How she fights against all odds to follow her dreams of becoming a skater and competing in the national championship forms the premise of the film. Touted to be India’s first movie on skateboarding, the film is directed by late actor Mac Mohan’s daughter Manjari Makijany.

Rang De: ZEE5

Nithiin and Keerthy Suresh-starrer is a refreshing romantic drama which released in the theatres to a mixed response. Indianexpress.com’s Manoj Kumar R wrote in his review, “One of the primary duties of cinema is to provide comfort, especially in times we feel the world is folding in on itself. Rang De is one such film filled with happy and feel-good moments. The familiarity of the characters and story actually works in the favour of the film. It sort of feels like a comforting blanket, which gives you much-needed warmth and allows you to delight in a sense of nostalgia.”
