5 best shows and movies on Zee5, Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV+
1. Another Round – Amazon Prime Video
A Danish film that won best foreign film at the Academy Awards this year, Other round is about alcohol addiction and how it plays with the lives of four high school students who consume it daily as an experiment. The film stars the brilliant Mads Mikkelsen and is an absolute treat to watch.
2. Kaagaz – Sea5

A comedy film about a small-town man who is accidentally pronounced dead in the official documents. Determined to prove he’s alive again, the man is willing to go to any lengths. kaagazo is healthy, extremely funny and the perfect brew for an afternoon of relaxation.
3. Veer Zaara – Amazon Prime Video
When this movie came out in the mid-2000s, I still remember it being talked about everywhere. From posters to TV interviews to extensive print runs in the theaters, Veer Zaara struck a chord with Indian audiences unlike any other film. But I often wonder if such a story can be produced at a time like this. It follows Veer, an Indian Air Force pilot who falls in love with a Pakistani girl, Zaara. But his love story remains incomplete when he is captured behind enemy lines and spends his years in a Pakistani prison. The movie is fueled by a great soundtrack and should definitely be a must watch movie if you haven’t already.
4. Servant – Apple TV+
A show that has caused a lot of buzz this year, Servant streaming on Apple TV+ is a gripping thriller about a Philadelphia couple grieving after an unimaginable tragedy causes a rift in their marriage. At their most vulnerable, a mysterious force enters their world and turns their lives upside down. Servant was created by M. Night. Shyamalan and stars Rupert Grint, Lauren Ambrose, Nell Tiger Free among others in pivotal roles.
5. Ayyapanum Koshiyum – Amazon Prime Video
To be honest, I’ve had my doubts about this movie ever since I saw it in theaters early last year. Clocking in at nearly three hours, this Malayalam drama is about two men who just won’t budge. A minor quarrel turns into a fierce rivalry that affects not only their lives, but also those of those around them. This made me wonder, if one of them shook off all that toxic masculinity for a second and apologized to the other, the movie would be over in just 10 minutes. But regardless of all this, Ayyapanum Koshiyum with its impeccable visuals and performances by Prithviraj and Biju Menon, it is a decent watch.
