5 shows and movies on SonyLIV, Netflix and Disney + Hotstar
1. Ajeeb Dastaans – Netflix
Released last week, Ajeeb Dastaans is a Hindi anthology film consisting of four short films with a broader theme of love and relationships. While not as simple as the name suggests, these stories have their own twists and turns. While you may not like them all equally, the latter two are a really good watch and are powered by great acting from Konkona Sen Sharma, Manav Kaul and Shefali Shah.
2. Quiz – SonyLIV
It’s one of last year’s underrated releases, following the dramatic true story of how a married couple attempted a daring robbery on the famous national TV quiz show ‘Who wants to be a millionaire? ‘ A story that is sure to keep its audience on the edge of the seat, Quiz promises to be a really good watch with some impressive performances from Matthew MacFadyen, Sian Clifford and Michael Sheen.
3. Kaaka Muttai – Disney + Hotstar
Kaaka Muttai is a testimony to what fair filmmaking can be. A simple themed Tamil movie about a new pizzeria and two kids eager to taste a piece of it, Kaaka Muttai is a heartfelt retelling of society and the gap between rich and poor. Directed by Manikandan, Kaaka Muttai doesn’t have a star cast or big budget sequences, but with a story and theme that audiences are sure to hold on to, this Tamil movie is one for all ages.
4. The Chicago 7 Trial – Netflix
Definitely one of the contenders for the Academy Awards, this Alan Sorkin movie hit all the right notes in terms of a movie watching experience. It was uplifting, enlightening and sometimes even unintentionally funny when we took on the role of a fly on the wall in the courtroom where seven people were on trial for alleged incitement to violence in Chicago in the 1960s. The movie features some of the most talented actors in Hollywood, including Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Jeremy Strong, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
5. I Can Destroy You – Disney + Hotstar
I can destroy you handles sexual abuse in the most sensitive way possible, but at the same time allows the characters to react and behave in situations that are both uncomfortable and unintentionally funny. Written, directed and starring Micheala Cole, this British series is refreshing and has been getting celebrities excited since July. You could end up with just 12 episodes I can destroy you one day as it is lighthearted, but at the same time gripping in its moments and will make you feel for the characters. The soundtrack also makes this series your perfect binge content today.
