5 best shows and movies on SonyLIV, Netflix and Lionsgate Play
1. Jamtara (Sabka Number Ayega) – Netflix
One of the most underrated shows from India, it showcases the shady syndicate of phishing callers from a village in Bihar. The show follows one such group and how their lives are affected when larger fish in the water want their food. Jamtara shows the dynamics between police and local down very well and is a show we highly recommend.
2. Undekhi – SonyLIV
Undekhi released last year was one of the most popular titles on the platform and could easily be an interesting watch for you today. The show is based on true events and shows two classes in society. First, a power-drunk bunch of influential people who are convinced they can get away with anything while the oppressed are tortured for years. Things start to boil when the oppressed finally decide to bring the influential people to justice. Undekhi stars Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Surya Sharma and Harsh Chhaya.
3. The End of the Damned World – Netflix
While the show’s title is very much in line with the current mood of the world, the story isn’t quite an apocalyptic one, but rather a personal conclusion to the lives of the characters in the series. Alyssa and James are two teenagers who have led very different and complicated lives until now. Their decision to get out and run sets off a series of events that eventually lead to them running for their lives.
4. Chaos – Lionsgate Play
I expected this movie to be a dud and frankly a waste of time as it was released without any promotion from the cast and had absolutely no buzz. But I was surprised by this decently done post-apocalyptic story about a country where there are no women and the men in society are not just a frustrated couple but their thoughts are put on display unless you learn to control them. While the plot of the film may seem a bit obscure, I promise you it’s worth your time. It stars Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley and Mads Mikkelsen in lead roles.
5. The Trial of the Chicago 7 – Netflix
This Alan Sorkin movie hits the right note when it comes to a movie watching experience. It was uplifting, enlightening, and at times even unintentionally funny as we played the part 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 film features some of the most talented actors in Hollywood, including Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Jeremy Strong, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
