5 shows and movies on Zee5, Amazon Prime Video and BookMyShow Stream
1. Mafia – Zee5
A psychological thriller that immediately pulls you in, Mafia is a story about six close friends from college who decide to reunite for a party. Bound by a certain dark incident in history, the party gathers the trauma for only a few to turn the journey into a dangerous game. Mafia is an exciting watch with a storyline that does just enough to keep you hooked on your screens.
2. The Great Indian Cuisine – Amazon Prime Video
This Malayalam movie that was first released on a relatively unknown streaming platform is now available on Prime Video. Starring Nimisha Sajayan and Swaraj Venjaramoodu as the newly married couple, The great Indian cuisine is about how suffocating it is for women in a household that is tied to the daily chores and juggling. With moving performances by Nimisha and Swaraj, The great Indian cuisine is a brilliant sketch of the depth of patriarchy in our society. A powerful watch.
3. Judas and the Black Messiah – BookMyShow Stream
Daniel Kaluuya’s performance that ultimately earned him his first Oscar is reason enough for you to check out this gem. This is the story of Willian O’Neal, who, after offering a plea deal from the FBI, infiltrates the Illinois branch of the Black Party. Judas and the Black Messiah is a story that brilliantly chronicles Black’s history in the United States.
4. Caught – Amazon Prime Video
Rajkummar Rao stars in this claustrophobic journey from a movie. Caught, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, is the story of Shaurya who accidentally locks herself in his new apartment that has no water, food or neighbors and must find ways to survive. Rao puts on one of the best performances of his life and turns this film into an exciting, if uncomfortable, look.

Tune Manmarziyan at Zee5 with Abhishek Bachchan, Tapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal in a love triangle. Only this time, director Anurag Kashyap tries to process subtle nuances, giving us a feel-good story of love and forgiveness.
