This 21 Day Lockdown Is The Perfect Time To Discover The Hidden Gems Of Regional Drama



We have 21 days â 21 days to sit at home and flatten the curve. Thatâs all we need to do, folks! To beat Coronavirus we need to channel our inner couch-potatoes and do the best job of sitting at home and binge-watching one show after another. And if youâve already run out of content, donât worry, weâve got you covered.

After running through every must-watch list, we decided to help you broaden the spectrum by adding some regional dramas/shows to the mix. Here are 5 slice-of-life family entertainers that you can sit and watch with your family on MX Player. 

Aani Kay Hava S1-2

The firsts always hold a very special place in marriage â be it the first time you cook together, the first festival together, your first major fight or simply the first down payment on your car or house together. These little joys of life are explored in the magical season 1 of Aani Kay Hava starring Priya Bapat as Jui and Umesh Kamat as Saket in the series. The second season explores what comes next in their married life. When the honeymoon phase is over, how does this couple change their mundane routine to strengthen their bond? Watch this amazing 6-episodic series directed by Varun Narvekar on MX Player.


When everything goes wrong, one clings on to even the slightest ray of hope. And thatâs exactly what happens to Kumar Mahajan in this 9-episodic series Samantar. When Kumar is fired from his job and canât meet his familyâs needs, he starts panicking. Even the smallest things seem to go astray for him. Thatâs when he finds his ray of hope â a visit to an astrologer reveals that a man called Sudarshan Chakrapaniâs past will be his future. That sets into motion a change of events that will take on you a thrilling ride. 

Directed by Satish Rajwade this show is based on a novel by the same name. It also marks the digital debut of Swapnil Joshi along with the beautiful Tejaswini Pandit who plays his wife in the series.


Pandu, also a famous colloquial slang for the Mumbai Police, depicts the everyday problems and situation of the hardworking police force. This light-hearted comedy is a laugh riot and a real insight into the complexities of their job. The series stars Suhas Sirsat, Deepak Shirke, and Trupti Khamkar in pivotal roles.
