1. Sacred Games
We don’t need to tell you why this is our numero uno choice. Based on Vikram Chandra’s book by the same name and coming out from the house of Anurag Kashyap, this Netflix show has generated unprecedented hysteria. Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s character, Ganesh Gaitonde became a cult figure as soon as the series went on air. Its season 2 led to hilarious memes and now the audiences are eagerly waiting for the season 3.
2. Inside Edge
Mix cricket with entertainment and you will get a cocktail to push your adrenaline high. Inside Edge did just that. Based on the games that cricketers and officials indulge in off the field, the series took inspiration from IPL and officially launched the desi web series fad. Amazon has recently announced season 2 of Inside Edge and it has already piqued the interest of viewers.
Another gem from Amazon Originals, Mirzapur is set in the heartland of UP and chronicles the bloody tale of two families in the lawless town of Mirzapur. Backed by superb performances from Pankaj Tripathi, Vikrant Massey and Ali Fazal, this is a must-watch.
4. The Kota Factory
This TVF series in black and white shows the grey life of IIT-JEE aspirants in Kota, and every student and engineer could relate to it. Compared to Hrithik Roshan-starrer Super 30’s glamorized storyline, The Kota Factory was to the point and brutal. Watch it if you haven’t because you are missing a masterpiece.
