10 Best Web Series on Amazon Prime India in 2020
With the pandemic being nowhere near to end, OTT platforms like Amazon Prime Video are our only savior from boredom.
Amazon Prime Video has become India’s personal theatre that they can carry around anywhere and anytime. Here’s a list of some of the best web series on amazon prime India that need to be on your binge list.
This is a show that needs to be on your binge list. Based on Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s one-woman play adaptation of the same name, Fleabag is a 2 season 12 episode series that revolves around the life of a 30-year-old woman. She is a complete mess. There is hardly anything that she has done right in her life. She uses sex as her escape from her complicated emotions.
The entire series is about she transforms into a more mature person, accepting her mistakes and also falling in love. Undoubtedly the best web series on Amazon Prime India.
2. The Family Man
The Family Man is one of the most exciting, thrilling, and entertaining series I have seen in recent times. It’s a complete package.
While his family is convinced that he is a government employee with a hectic schedule, Srikanth is out there on a mission fighting terrorists and ensuring national security. Yes, he is a spy and has a double life! I couldn’t stop myself from binge-watching this super cool series all day long.
I’m just so impatient for the second season to be out!
3. Paatal Lok
Paatal Lok is deep, mysterious, and keeps you at the edge of your seat. It is a brutally honest insight into raw India. Backed by some terrific performances, Paatal Lok is just the right one for you if you are in the mood for a crime mystery. Again, it is one of the best Indian web series on Amazon Prime and you just can not miss it!
4. Four More Shots Please!
This series revolves around the life of 4 women and how they set out on a journey to own the world in their sexy stilettos. The story is packed with some hot and steamy scenes and objects to the stigmas surrounding female sexual pleasure. Relationships, drama, comedy, and friendship; this is what Four More Shots Please all about. And come on, it’s not daily that you come across female buddy movies or series.
5. Made in Heaven
Matches are made in heaven they say; but are they? Made in Heaven is a take into the dark side of big fat Indian weddings. A highly relevant series, Made in Heaven covers so much that needs to be discussed in our society. It’s such a proud moment to see Arjun Mathur, who played Karan, get nominated for the Emmys.
Made in Heaven took Indian television to global heights. Made in Heaven is not all dark. There are some heartwarming moments while there are moments that make you cry and even think.
6. Bandish Bandits
Bandish Bandits is a unique take on a modern love story. It is about two young aspiring musicians with different musical interests and how they explore life through music. We have the legend Naseeruddin Shah back in action after a break.
If you love music, then this is for you. Music is the strength of the series and combining western and Hindustani music did do its magic. Simple putting, Bandish Bandit is an entertaining light-hearted musical drama that you will definitely enjoy. It veers away from the usual cop-drama in OTT platforms.
7. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
With over three seasons and counting, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a comedy-drama set in 1958, Manhattan. Miriam Midge Maisel is a young Jewish American whose husband leaves her for his secretary. In an attempt to pull her life together, she discovers her knack for comedy and sets out to become a stand up comic.
The hilarious set of events that follow is what the show is all about. If you are in the mood for some light-hearted comedy, this show is all yours to binge.
Another intense mystery thriller, Breathe, starring R Madhavan is the story of a father who is desperate to save his son’s life. It is Amazon Prime’s second Indian original series after Inside Edge. Breathe is not just all about mystery, it is about relationships too. Madhavan’s Danny and Amit Sadh’s Kabir are two desperate people stuck in a cat and mouse game. ‘How far will you go for love?”, simply sums up the entire series.
9. Breathe: Into the Shadows
Though the same name, this sequel is set in entirely different premises. However, the desperation for the loved ones remains the same. Starring Abhishek Bachhan and Nitya Menen, Breath Into The Shadows is again an intense mystery drama packed with suspense and an intriguing storyline. Abhishek Bachhan did a splendid job in his internet debut.
The only way I can sum this up would be – the web version of an Anurag Kashyap movie! There’s so much of UP-Lucknow dialect, gruesome murder, guns, love; basically every ingredient of a typical Anurag Kashyap film. Only watch if you love those kinds of films!! Otherwise, you are not going to enjoy your binge sessions!
