5 shows and movies on Zee5, Disney + Hotstar and Apple TV + to watch
1. Coco – Disney + Hotstar
Coco is a heartwarming story of Miguel who loves to sing and perform while his family, especially his grandmother, forbid him to do so and force him to join the family’s shoe factory. Coco is a story about how a boy unites his family’s misunderstood past with the present. An animated movie with so much fantasy deserves a special place among movie buffs and is definitely one of the best movies you’ll see on the list.
2. The married woman – Zee5
A show that has gotten quite the buzz since its release, The married woman at Zee5 is a rom-com web series about two women – Astha and Peeplika – who are two opposite sides of the coin. While Astha is a traditional woman who puts her duty above all else, Peeplika is an unconventional artist who is free of spirit. Their paths cross, which leads them to try to balance their lives while forming a close bond with each other.
3. Bath Shark Ho – Disney + Hotstar
Ayushmann Khurrana after the great success of Andhadhun was then featured in this comedy film about an older woman who unexpectedly becomes pregnant, just because her grown children and people in the neighborhood are ashamed. Although the film dealt with a relatively sensitive subject, it was portrayed so casually that it not only conveyed the message effectively, but also provided many funny moments. Neena Gupta and Gjaraj Rao, who play the parents in the middle of it, are excellent and the film certainly makes for a great family viewing experience.
4. The Truth Be Told – Apple TV +
The truth is being told is a story about a local real-crime podcaster who gained national fame after her first suspect was successfully convicted of a murder trial. Things are turned upside down when the case is reopened and certain new evidence indicates that her suspect has been wrongly convicted. The truth is being told is a captivating TV series that will keep you guessing until the last minute and starring the extremely talented Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul.
5. The Deuce – Disney + Hotstar
