Indian digital content this year saw some rather iconic and critically appreciated content in the past year. From Sacred Games being nominated to the Emmy‘s to shows like Made In Heaven exploring complex and layered narratives, we got to see a host of great content straight from the comfort of our homes. With 2019 coming to an end, we are rounding up the best web shows we watched in the past year, which you can try and catch up on before the year ends.
This series conceptualised by Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti and Nitya Mehra, did a wonderful job in setting its premise around the world of big fat Indian weddings while it explored the most deep-rooted issues related to culture, caste, love and politics in our country. With a superb cast consisting of Sobhita Dhulipala, Arjun Mathur, Jim Sarbh, Kalki Koechlin, Shashank Arora and Shivani Raghuvanshi, this one was a winner alright!
With the first season being such a breath of fresh air with Dhruv and Kavya finding their way around love and everything that comes with it, the second season takes a much deeper dive into their relationship and made for such a relatable watch thanks to the lovely actors – Mithila Palkar and Dhruv Sehgal.
This was one show that people started watching mainly due to word of mouth and what an impactful and well-written show it turned out to be! Dealing with the incidents of violence and atrocities against women in the capital city, Shefali Shah and the rest of the cast will make you feel all the terror in your bones with their strong performances.
Inside Edge from Amazon Prime was one of the first original series to hit the Indian digital scene and one of the first to go to the Emmy’s. I loved how they had explored the politics and the intricacies of the inside lives of the characters with the most celebrated game in the country – cricket – as the backdrop!
Sacred Games was all about the larger than life world of Ganesh Gaitonde and Sartaj Singh and the second season this time went to the Emmy‘s – representing our country. Now, that’s a big deal and says a lot about how iconic the show became among the audiences. So, if you haven’t caught the show yet, well this last week is the best time to, right?
Now, isn’t this the best time of the year to get together with your siblings and watch something like the TVF Tripling series? With the amazing trio – Sumeet Vyaas, Amol Parashar and Maanvi Gagroo – and the absolutely entertaining storyline, this was a fun watch!
This absolutely well-written and gripping storyline about a middle-class man, Srikant, played beautifully by Manoj Bajpayee has him being both a family man and a super-smart spy is something you need to binge on right now if you like an intelligent and smart story.
It’s so great to go back to the good old days and revisit our first brush with love right? Flames season 2 explores the relationship between young teenage couples and their discovery of love and other things. Got to love the sweet chemistry between the lead pair Ritvik Sahore and Tanya Maniktala, no? Watch it to just feel all the feels!
After a very broken but beautiful first season, AltBalaji‘s Broken but Beautiful season 2 starring Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi was all kinds of relatable and an emotional roller-coaster about what happens when you are not over someone you once loved. You can totally jump onto this week for all the mushy romance and the teary moments, if you haven’t watched it already!
Last but not least, the highest-rated web series of the year! TVF’s Kota Factory chronicles the life and struggles of the hundreds of students who move to the city to fulfil their dreams of getting into an IIT or a medical college. Something that is oh-so-relatable, got to catch it for all the praises it has been garnering.
So, which one are you planning on watching this holiday week?
