The weekend is here and we all know what that means. Without further ado, let’s dive right into our list of today’s recommendations, which includes five shows and movies on SonyLIV, Amazon Prime Video, and BookMyShow Stream that you can watch today:
5 shows and movies on SonyLIV, Amazon Prime Video and BookMyShow Stream to watch
1. Panchayat – Amazon Prime Video
Tucked into all the major releases on the platform is this nationwide one-season comedy series starring the highly talented Jitendra Kumar along with Neena Gupta and Raghubir Yadav. The story centers on a man from the city who gets a job as the Panchayat secretary in a village in Uttar Pradesh. He reluctantly accepts the job, but ends up getting involved in the lives of the innocent villagers and often solving their problems.
2. Principle – BookMyShow Stream / Prime Video
It’s Robert Pattinson’s birthday and that’s enough excuse for us to revisit this movie. As an experience, Tenet is everything you wish for in a Nolan movie. It is a story about an unnamed protagonist who discovers a world of time-traveling gun smugglers transporting weapons and instructions from the future to destroy the planet. This man must go against all odds to stop this worldwide Armageddon. Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki and Kenneth Branagh in lead roles.
3. Jallikattu – Amazon Prime Video
Jallikattu evoked a response in me like no other film and with some stunning sound editing and cinematography, this film was one of the best in the country in recent years I think. A story about a village determined to catch a bull that has wreaked havoc, Jallikattu is ultimately a story of human greed and is highly symbolic to the end. While it may not be an exaggeration, as an audience we can’t help but think long and deeply about what the film is propagating and where the fine line lies between what is acceptable and what is insane.
4. Avrodh – SonyLiv
Starring Amit Sadh, Neeraj Kabi, Madhurima Tuli, among others, Avrodh is a high-octane action series detailing the 2016 surgical attack that India carried out. While the first few episodes delve deeper into the planning of the attack, the show also features sequences of the attack. This multi-level planning may have taken days, but it was done in utmost secrecy and Avrodh in a way that describes all very well. A good distraction to have at the end of all that work.
5. Interested Party – Amazon Prime Video
Christopher Nolan’s brother, Jonathan, is one of the authors of this technological thriller. A story about a billionaire building all-seeing eye surveillance, Suspect is a really good look at how technology is all around us and can be used very easily for or against us.
