5 Action-Packed Shows & Movies About Crime-Drama That Are A Must Watch



Malls are shut, concerts are postponed and most of us are working from home - quarantine is real and we're in this together. But hey, lounging around at home does have its upsides, my favourite being binge-watching like there's no tomorrow (and not regret it). 

While I was at it, I made a list of five must-watch crime-dramas that will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you root for justice.

Badla (2019)

A young, married entrepreneur (played by Tapsee Pannu) wakes up in a hotel room, only to find herself locked with her lover's dead body. She gets caught in a web of accusations and heads to a reputed lawyer (played by Amitabh Bachchan) for help. 

Packed with mystery, suspense, and fear, this short & slick thriller is an all-time favourite. 

Bhaukaal (2020)

Set in Muzaffarnagar of 2003, MX Player's latest show Bhaukaal is the story of police officer Naveen Sikhera (played by Mohit Raina) who gets posted to the sin city as the new SP (Superintendent of Police). He makes justice his prime goal amidst unforgiving gang lords, bribery, corruption, and the infamous UP mafia. 

Inspired by true events, the story of Bhaukaal is based on the life of IPS officer Navniet Sekera, who eradicated gangsters and infamous mafias from Uttar Pradesh. 

All the episodes of Bhaukaal are now streaming on MX Player, for free. 

Risk (2017)


Set in modern-day Mumbai, the film revolves around a Bangkok based don, Khalid Bin Jamal, who has the political big guns, right from the Home Minister to the Police Commissioner under his control. Things start getting out of hand when Jamal frames an honest police officer in a murder scandal and uses him as a pawn for his shrewd schemes. 

Starring Vinod Khanna, Randeep Hooda and Tanushree Dutta, this underrated thriller packs a punch and doesn't disappoint. 

Gangaajal (2003)

In a world full of corruption, people like SP Amit Kumar (played by Ajay Devgn) make us believe in the power of authority, honesty and justice. In Gangaajal, he's posted to Tezpur - a city struggling with violence, crime, bribery, and favouritism. Kumar takes law and order in his hands and works towards making 'justice' the new normal.

Manorama Six Feet Under (2007)

The film revolves around Satyaveer (played by Abhay Deol), a public works engineer living in a small town in Rajasthan. Things take an unexpected turn when an irrigation minister's wife bribes him to collect evidence against her husband who is having an extra-marital affair. Little did he know he was being deceived himself.
