5 best shows and movies on Voot Select, Amazon Prime Video and Disney + Hotstar
1. Ok Jaanu – Voot Select
A remake of the Tamil movie Ok Kanmani, Ok Jaanu is a modern love story between Adi and Tara who are ambitious in their lives. They decide the best way forward for them is a no-strings-attached live relationship. Even though it’s all perfect at first, when the work pulls them apart, they realize the love for each other and begin to question their decision. Although the Tamil movie makes for a much better watch, Okay Jaanu is also a decent movie with a talented ensemble consisting of Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson.
2. Beyond – Disney + Hotstar
Pixar movies are often my go-to when I need to watch something light and airy and Forward is yet another winner. In a fantasy land where magical creatures live a human life, two brothers set out on an adventure to restore a spell that allows them to spend an entire day with their dead father. Forward has a star cast with Tom Holland, Chris Pratt and Julia Louis Dreyfus and is a film that makes you laugh and cry.
3. The Expanse – Amazon Prime Video
This highly-rated sci-fi series is based on hundreds of years into the future when things are different from Earth. Mars is now an independent military force. The tensions between Earth and Mars are unprecedented. The expanse has a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is a must see show this weekend.
4. Petta – Voot
A pot boiler with little logic and a lot of entertainment, Petta starring Rajinikanth is just the movie to watch if you’re looking for some mindless distraction. Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Petta, in the Nilgiris, is a potboiler, where a man tries to save his best friend’s son from local goons. But soon he finds himself face to face with his past and things turn upside down.
5. Sound of Metal – Amazon Prime Video
One of the contenders for this year’s Oscars, Sound of Metal starring Riz Ahmed is a tragic drama about a drummer who suffers from degenerative hearing and is desperate for new meaning in life. Riz Ahmed’s acting in this movie is desperate and thrilling, which will leave you feeling as helpless as he does. Sound of Metal is a pretty intense watch and can easily distract you from everything that is going on in your life.
