5 shows and movies on Voot Select, Netflix, Disney + Hotstar
1. It’s not that simple – Voot Select
It all starts with a high school reunion where a housewife who is unhappy with her marriage meets people from her past. She begins to wonder what life could be like that ultimately changes the dynamic between her and the husband. It’s a kind of redemption story that springs from an unhappy marriage and with a realistic storyline and credible performances, It’s not that simple, which includes Swara Bhaskar, Sumeet Vyas and Purab Kohli, could be a really good watch for you today.
2. The Mandalorian – Disney + Hotstar
Think of some of the western classics and add warring galaxies and the empire and that’s what The Mandalorian usually feels. A spin-off from the Star Wars series, The Mandalorian picks up after the events of Return of the Jedi, where the empire is supposedly broken, only for a few factions to retrieve the pieces. We follow the titular character (played by Pedro Pascal) who is a space bounty hunter. On one of his missions he records a ‘child’ with whom he bonds. With much effort to find the ‘Child’, the Mandalorian chooses a life on the run.
3. The Social Dilemma – Netflix
At an age where almost our entire life is behind a screen, this documentary gives us a deep dive into how the modern world runs on data. Since every second of our activity is logged for targeted advertising or even monitoring, it is quite dystopian to think of how our lives are constantly monitored. The film does a good job of giving us insight into what they do with all the data and even points out the problems behind the entire system. You should choose an educational watch to see it.
4. Drishyam – Disney + Hotstar
No, I am not talking about the Hindi version, but the original Malayalam version which was eventually remade in multiple languages. With the second part of this tightly scripted crime thriller coming out later this week, you may want to revisit this classic, starring Mohanlal. Story about a father who tries his best to hide his daughter’s mistakes, using all the knowledge he has gained from years of being a movie buff Drishyam assumes how well a plot is made without major loopholes.
5. Autumn – Netflix
A kind of hidden gem on the platform, this psychological thriller follows the lives of two people: a serial killer in Belfast, Ireland and a female detective tasked with arresting him. The detective leads a task force, but will the efforts be enough to catch the serial killer? The fall with Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan in the lead and in its three seasons, it makes for a very compelling watch.
