I don’t know about you but I am running out of series to binge-watch on! Well, it’s not like there is nothing left to watch but I am the kind of person who’d rather watch something recommended by someone than try and look for a new one myself. And it’s great to know what you’re getting into, because binge-watching means serious commitment, no? So, I thought I should rather ask someone who’s from the other side of my laptop screen and know what they’ve been loving to binge-watch lately. And this week, Amyra Dastur happily agreed to share her recommendations with us!
Amyra Dastur has worked in the Hindi, Tamil as well as the Telugu industry! We’ve loved watching her in Kaalakaandi opposite Saif Ali Khan and Kung Fu Yoga opposite Jackie Chan. And just like her great taste in the films she chooses to do, she’s been watching some really interesting shows on the internet. Scroll down to check ’em all out!
It’s sci-fi and fantasy. The cast is brilliant and the effects are AMAZING! It’s based on the novel The Golden Compass and I finished it in two days because it was so gripping and filled with amazing adventurous visuals. It’s got talking animals, good witches, and the lead character is a 12-year-old girl with a thirst for magic. This is a show you can watch with the fam and all ages will definitely enjoy it.
I think it’s the best Hindi show I’ve ever watched! It’s a fantastic insight into the journey of a middle-class cop struggling to solve a case in the gritty underbelly that is North India. The plot twists and character developments are brilliant. The performances are spectacular and the story grips you from the 1st minute of the show.
A show set during the end of the world—it revolves around a monster train that ferries the last living human beings on earth. It’s in the sci-fi zone and displays a major classist divide as well as the lengths human beings will go to in order to survive. Its an absolute thriller and a different storyline as compared to other shows. The action sequences and odd characters are the best part of this show.
I’ve always been a Sushmita Sen fan but after Aarya, I’ve become star-struck! I love a story that showcases the true power and determination of a woman when pushed to the edge. Every episode is gripping and the plot twists are unpredictable. Each and every actor has performed superbly and the last minute of the last episode will make you desperate to watch season 2!
This is a show about a poor, lower-class seven-member dysfunctional family living in Chicago and how they do everything and anything (even criminal acts) to survive and thrive. It’s a hilarious feel-good show that focuses on getting in trouble and the true meaning of blood is thicker than water. There are 11 amazing seasons so this show will definitely keep you entertained for a long time.
If you’re a fan of murder mysteries then you cannot miss this! Set in the 19th century, the show rests on a brilliant anti-social doctor who goes to great lengths to solve the murders of young boys who are being brutally killed. It’s got a Sherlock Holmes vibe and is thrilling from the beginning to the very end. Season 2 is due in a couple of months and I’m aching to watch it!
