5 best shows and movies on BookMyShow Stream, Netflix and Disney + Hotstar
1. Madras Cafe – Netflix
A spy thriller that stands out for its fast-paced storyline and plot that will keep you hooked. This John Abraham starrer is a must-see on Netflix. The story follows Vikram, an Indian intelligence agent deployed to Sri Lanka. He is caught between a raging civil war in the country and a conspiracy to assassinate India’s former Prime Minister. Nargis Fakhri and Siddartha Basu also play a central role in the film.
2. The Current War – BookMyShow Stream
We travel back to the 19th century, where three pioneers in science – Thomas Alva Edison, George Westinghouse and Nikolai Tesla – are engaged in a neck-and-neck battle to become the first person to bring electricity into the world. This biographical drama stars such big names as Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult and Tom Holland and is a film that can distract you and your whole family for up to two hours.
3. Easttown Mare – Disney + Hotstar
If you start a good TV show and continue this all weekend, I can’t imagine anything better at this point than Mare or Easttown. The season that has completed six episodes so far is one of the best slowburn crime thrillers I’ve seen recently. The story begins in Easttown, a small town in Pennsylvania, where we meet Police Detective Mare (played by Kate Winslet). Mare investigates the case of a missing young woman and rings the bell as her traumatic memories within her family slowly begin to unravel. The show is an absolute must-watch with a supporting cast starring Jean Smart and Erik Peiters.
4. Shoplifters – Netflix
The winner of the Palme d’Or Prize 2018, Shoplifters simply plunges into poverty and shows a family about to struggle through life in Japan. It’s almost unbelievable how shoplifters can be uplifting and depressing at the same time, but this brilliant piece of cinema is worth every minute you spend on it. With some moving performances by his ensemble, Shoplifters is a gem that is shining brightly on Netflix right now.
5. Dead Poets Society – Disney + Hotstar
A coming of age drama about a group of students inspired by the out-of-the-box teaching techniques of their new English teacher, Dead Poets Society has a huge rewatchability factor and is filled with scenes that are sure to melt your heart. With so many quotable dialogues and some heartfelt performances from Robin Williams and co. Dead Poets Society is a light-hearted watch with some hard moments that are sure to hit you. And if you still need an excuse to watch the movie, Robin Williams is as energetic there as ever and if you still haven’t fallen in love with his legacy and his performances then you will after this movie.
