5 best shows and movies on Voot Select, Disney + Hotstar and Lionsgate Play to watch
1. Your Honor – Voot Select
Who wouldn’t love a show from Bryan Cranston that reminded them a lot of his Walter White character? Your honor this time, the talented actor stars as a respected judge who is willing to go to extremes to hide his son’s hit-and-run. In the process, he opens a can of worms that raises the stakes a lot more than he expected. The first reviews of the show have been very positive and it is definitely a show for you to enjoy.
2. Agent Carter – Disney + Hotstar
Set right after the events of Captain AmericaThis TV show follows Peggy Carter, a SHIELD special agent who worked closely with Howard Stark on various threats that plagued the planer. although Agent Carter is a show that takes place quite early on during the Infinity Saga, it still gives us a deep dive into the Tesseract and also gives context to future MCU movies. Agent Carter stars Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper and James D’Arcy in central roles.
3. The Royals – Lionsgate Play
Since the British Royal Family is on our timelines much more than they would have liked, it makes sense that this show is your thing this weekend. A fictional story about the royal family thrown into an uproar when the heir apparent dies unexpectedly, his younger siblings pick up the pieces and have a hard time coping as the queen tries to keep her grip on the crown. The Royals star Eliabeth Hurley, William Mosely among others.
4. Guardians – Disney + Hotstar
One show that I thought was grossly underrated until it literally won the 2020 Emmys (rightfully so) was Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen. An adaptation of HBO’s critically acclaimed comic book series Guards touched on topics such as racial injustice and systemic violence that ultimately caused masked vigilantes to take over society. Every episode in this miniseries is packed with so much information that you just can’t take your eyes off it. Guards is intense, crunchy and every bit of distraction is guaranteed to make for a better Saturday.
5. Bajirao Mastani – Voot Select
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bajirao Mastani with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone as the titular characters whose love story shaped an entire era in the Maratha kingdom. Bajirao decides he wants to remarry, this time to Mastani against all odds and even against his very willing family, he tries to make amends. Bajirao Mastani makes for a great viewing experience and all the actors did a great job in their roles.
