  1. Netflix India's latest offering 'Leila' starring Huma Qureshi hit our screens yesterday, and since the show was already pretty hyped-up with the trailer and plot looking very interesting, it was only natural that in less than 24 hours, a myriad of opinions would pop up once the show hit the air. The show is set up in a dystopian future, where a helpless mother is desperately looking for her lost daughter. The show has opened to rave reviews from a lot of peoplem, who are calling it a spine-chilling reality check. #Leila is a scary reality which might knock our doors in the near future. The need to create a better world for our future generations is more than ever. We shouldn't take clean water and air for granted anymore or else we won't have any left. @humasqureshi you were incredible. — Abheshek Garg (@LovelybonE_04) June 15, 2019 The freakiest part of #Leila for me is that the horrors shown are all happening already somewhere in the world...The policing of women's bodies, scarcity of water (those scenes ð±), food rations, fall of law and order, violence in the name of hyper-nationalism.. https://t.co/YGHHEk6WZL — Aliya Curmally (@filminista) June 15, 2019 The Dystopia depicted in the latest @NetflixIndia series #Leila is very Disturbing, Depressing & Disgusting. And in that disgust lies its strength. It is a warning sign for present generations to be careful with natural & ideological 'resources' or else witness mayhem in future. — Abhinav Saxena (@abhinavsaxena25) June 14, 2019 People are in awe of Huma Qureshi and everyone who put their hard work into making this show a success. Leila is the best work of Huma Qureshi.. I am spellbound with her impeccable performance.. Loved the series and hope the period shown in the series never comes.. @humasqureshi @NetflixIndia #leila netflix — Sneha (@beingsnehaa) June 14, 2019 One episode. ONE EPISODE is enough to shake you. Totally. I just hope it goes well ahead too. Wow @humasqureshi #Leila — υ∂αÒ¯ (@imuday02) June 14, 2019 However, there are many viewers who felt that the show was a little weak, in terms of depicting what it wanted to convey and also many felt the borrowed emotion from 'The Handmaid's Tale' to be quite evident . Just because something is controversial and bold, doesn't mean it's actually good#Leila is a copy of the show @HandmaidsOnHulu I have seen them both and I'd recommend skipping #Leila I also didn't like how political and communal they made it when they could've avoided it — ðððð ÙÙØ­ÙÙد ‎ ð­ððððð (@tysaa13) June 14, 2019 Watched ep 1 of #Leila on Netflix. It was quite pedestrian. Very thin direction and substance, poor special effects. All it seemed good for was to massage many people's sense of outrage against the hierarchical & purity-obsessed Indian/Hindu society. — Dhara (@dhar_aa) June 14, 2019 Waste of time..!!! So much hype they created. Seriously all she has is only one emotion throughout the series and nothing else. Or maybe her face is only capable of producing that one and only emotion. #Leila — à²à²¿à²°à²à²à³à²µà²¿ à²à³à²¡ (@Ljs6JuKBeB4wgTI) June 14, 2019 Also, some people feel that the show comes across a politically charged propaganda and is defaming certain religions and strata of the society. I have one question for @netflix When you create a dystopian world for the west, you show all kind of tech and cool guys shitting science and girls riding ð¦ But while creating a dystopian India, you show an entire community in bad light. WTF is #Leila No ð PATHETIC — BRAHMA (@BrahmaUbaach) June 14, 2019 Sheer propaganda nthng else, frm costumes to stereotypes #leila is just another way to show their bigotry. @NetflixIndia hv grt content but y they r stooping to this propaganda, can't undrstnd. If u wnt to see totalitarian nation see documentries on NKorea n saudi on netflix only — Mayank Dua (@MayankDua88) June 14, 2019 Just watched #Leila how disgusting u Morron guys see only one religion bed shame on u @humasqureshi @NetflixIndia — chowkidar sachin soni (@beingsachin_) June 14, 2019 It looks like 'Leila' is one of those shows which cannot be ignored and we feel that we should actually watch it to form an opinion about it. Sounds like an interesting weekend plan, what say?
  2. "I will kill them with success and bury them with a smile" - That's how Mithila Palkar's character has been introduced in Netflix's upcoming original film 'Chopsticks'. The trailer has been dropped online and the content is quite fresh and yes, also engaging. So, the story is about a talented but insecure woman who takes help from an enigmatic con to get her stolen car back. The film also stars Abhay Deol, who is known for his unconventional choices. Not just Abhay, the film also has the powerhouse of talent, Vijay Raaz, on board. Mithila and Abhay teaming up for a film is surely a visual delight for a movie fanatic. Both are such actors who believe in putting out their best on the big screen. 'Chopsticks' has been shot in Mumbai and all the locations from Colaba to Virar have been covered. In an interview with Grazia, Mithila and Abhay spoke about their experiences shooting for the film in Mumbai. Abhay said the shooting process was effortless and everything went pretty smooth. He added that working with Mithila was fun as she is full of energy. Adding to it, Mithila said that they have tried capturing the essence of the city. If you have seen the trailer, you would agree with us on the fact that the fresh pairing of Mithila and Abhay does add to the chunkiness of the film. Here's the trailer: Did you like it? Let us know in the comments below.
  3. 'Love, Death & Robots' is the kind of show that introduces you to an itch you didn't know needed to be scratched. The 18 episode long NSFW anthology is the perfect show for adults with a dark sense of humour, with an adequate thirst for gore and distressing content to go with it. (No wonder they put up 'This film is for messed up audiences' right at the beginning of the trailer.) As soon as we saw the trailer, we were sweating from all the excitement, because this one screamed 'Black Mirror' because of its weird, dark, futuristic demeanour - only cooler because of all the super edgy animation.

Love Death + Robots lands on Netflix March 15.ï¸ â¤ï¸ðð¤ #lovedeathandrobots A post shared by Love Death + Robots (@lovedeathandrobots) on Feb 14, 2019 at 9:31am PST When it comes to animation, viewers in general associate it with lighthearted, harmless content. Well get ready for that myth to be busted, and how. LDR probably is the goriest show you have ever watched till now - when it comes to animated content (probably apart from 'Happy Tree Friends'.) View this post on Instagram A post shared by Love Death + Robots (@lovedeathandrobots) on Feb 25, 2019 at 12:08am PST Another distinguishing feature of the series is the sheer variety of animation it entails. Right from the edgy Japanese style to the unbelievably realistic style of animation that you won't believe isn't real, LDR has it all, and it's an absolute visual treat. The *** scene in 'Beyond The Aquila Rift' legit looks like a clip from an adult movie, and the psychedelic hyper-reality in 'Fish Night' is mind-numbingly beautiful.

For example, the ending of 'Sonnie's Edge' - the one with the fighting pit with genetically engineered monsters that are controlled by fighters - can be the start of a whole new story. The same holds true for 'Three Robots' - an edgier version of 'Wall E' in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Love Death + Robots (@lovedeathandrobots) on Mar 5, 2019 at 8:54am PST What stays with you, long after you're done watching the series, are a few episodes like 'Zima Blue' and 'Good Hunting'. While 'Zima Blue' has an incredibly deep philosophical connotation attached, 'Good Hunting' is an amazing mix of Chinese folklore and the vintage steampunk genre, with a heartwarming angle thrown in. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Love Death + Robots (@lovedeathandrobots) on Mar 1, 2019 at 11:04am PST View this post on Instagram The hunt is not over. #LoveDeathandRobots A post shared by Love Death + Robots (@lovedeathandrobots) on Mar 7, 2019 at 9:05am PST There is enough content for dark humour enthusiasts as well. 'When The Yogurt Took Over' is a story of when a bowl of sentient yogurt took over the entire world - and it is as crazy as it sounds. 'Alternate Histories' deals with six ways in which the world would have been different, depending on the death of Hitler, in six hilarious ways. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Love Death + Robots (@lovedeathandrobots) on Mar 9, 2019 at 12:03pm PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Love Death + Robots (@lovedeathandrobots) on Feb 26, 2019 at 8:01am PST There are a lot of other exciting episodes like 'Ice Age', where a couple finds a miniature version of an ancient civilization inside their freezer, and 'The Witness', where a woman is on the run after having witnessed a murder in a psychedelic cityscape, and how it ends in an absolutely bizarre manner. The best thing about 'Love, Death, and Robots', however, is its runtime. All the episodes range from 6 to 18 minutes, which makes it a super crisp and easy watch. You can literally binge the entire thing in a day, and not feel dead afterwards. Your brain, however, will take weeks to recover from the madness.
  4. 'Bandersnatch' is awesome, 'Man vs Wild' is awesome, but Netflix thought 'What would happen if we smash those two together?' Well, a great show is what you get. Netflix's latest interactive project is coming this April and the premise already sounds so cool and promising. The show which is obviously hosted by none other than Bear Grylls is called 'You vs Wild' and I honestly just want to take a moment to appreciate the name. 'Man vs Wild' has one basic premise - Bear Grylls attempting to survive in extreme conditions and climates. But, 'You vs Wild', as the name suggests, will put the viewer in charge and all the decisions will determine whether he succeeds or fails. Basically, the people who would sometimes yell at the TV saying 'he should've done this instead!' can finally get a real voice. Since Black Mirror's 'Bandersnatch' was such a hit with the audience, even though I doubt anyone ever even managed to actually finish it, an interactive survival show should kill it. Netflix, please make a thriller or horror interactive movie next so we can actually control some of the stupid decisions instead of calling the characters dumb. Thanks. 'You vs Wild' is set to premiere on Netflix on April 10th and all the eight episodes will be available at the same time.
  5. Netflix India Is lately expanding, with a lot of interesting regional content coming up for the audience. One such Marathi movie called '15th August' has already created a lot of buzz for its feel-good vibe and content. The trailer just came out and we have to say it's a breath of fresh air. This 'slice-of-life' movie is based on the residents of the Gandhi 'chawl' in Mumbai where they are forced to come together on Independence Day due to certain situations that get them together. One story has a couple dealing with the dilemma of the guy and his commitment issue, the other parallel story is about a young boy's hand being stuck in a hole in the ground. All the mayhem and mess get the residents to get together and help each other. While doing so, they face some innocent questions about their own lives and face their own truths. © Netflix The movie is produced by actress Madhuri Dixit and her husband, Dr. Sriram Nene. You can stream it on Netflix from 29th March.
  6. Ahead of the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League, Netflix India has come up with an original docu-series, 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians', that covers the journey of a young but very capable owner in Akash Ambani and an extremely energetic core basis which the MI Paltan is formed. Sleepless nights? Nervous nail biting? Screaming at your screen? If you've experienced any or all of these symptoms you might have Cricket Fever, premieres 1st March. pic.twitter.com/Ujl1tq6Els — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) February 5, 2019 What begins much like any other cricket-specific documentary with fans highlighting how important and gravitationally pulling the sport is in India, 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians' soon deep-dives into the lives of those individuals that made the franchise come together. The unique and professional relationship being shared by Akash Ambani with mother, Nita Ambani as co-owners of the team as shown throughout the series is refreshing. Taking away a major portion of the responsibilities off his mother's shoulders, Akash has stepped up as an owner who not only cares about picking up the good players during the auction by also tries his best to become one of them during locker room talks, training sessions and meals as they take on the journey that the 2018 IPL really was. From a trip down the memory lane with Hardik and Krunal Pandya to the heartwarming story of Jasprit Bumrah and his proud mother, the series helps the Indian audience get to know their favourite cricketers a little more intimately, a little more personally. Getting to see Rohit Sharma successfully operate as the leader of the team that features athletes coming from different parts of the world, who approach the game a lot differently than his national teammates, says a thousand words about his brilliance not only as a batsman but also a captain and why he is given the role of the leader of the Men in Blue in the absence of Virat Kohli. What is unique about the series is how it did not just casually cruise over the defeats MI went through last year. The process of a team facing disappointment, expressing their emotions fresh after a loss in an open-floor discussion hosted by coach Mahela Jayawardene, motivating each other and getting ready to fight another day, has been beautifully captured by Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE), the studio that produced the series. In essence, even though Mumbai Indians was unable to win the title last year, the base of an organisation as grand as this is built on a lot of experiences and stories that are worth telling and that's exactly what 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians' has conveyed in this 8-episode docu-series.
  7. Note: This post contains spoilers about the show '*** Education' So, I watched this new series on Netflix called “*** Education”, starring Asa Butterfield and Gillian Anderson. It is a comedy-drama centring on a sexually-repressed teenager, 16-year old Otis Milburn (played by Butterfield), and his friends as they navigate the most tempestuous time of one's life: being a teenager. As they voyage through the currents of the journey, they chance upon the most invigorating topic of discussion in those years (and the years to come): ***! It got me thinking. And that I did. A lot! (No pun intended: Keep you mind out of the gutter! :P) ***! via GIPHY The word is enough for us to either burst into a fit of giggles or become increasingly uncomfortable. via GIPHY It isn't our mistake. We, as a society, have been stifled when talking about ***. Dont Do That Avengers GIF from Dontdothat GIFs *** is talked about in whispers and in secrecy. It is not to be mentioned, to be kept under covers. The mere whisper of the word is sure to make people angry or look at you like you have avowed Satan as your master. via GIPHY Stigma, is that you? Though what we have been taught is that *** is a bad thing. A thing to be done “tauba, tauba” over. The reason? Most people do not have the proper knowledge about their own bodies. A gruesomely true fact because no one bothered to teach it to us. And whatever we don't understand we try to mask with humour or complete censure. Our discomfort in talking about it stems from the lack of dialogue. © Netflix The topic is wonderfully addressed by the series, in such a witty way that you will find yourself questioning where it had been when we were teenagers. When Otis unknowingly helps a fellow student, Adam, to come to terms with his body and sexual issues, having eavesdropped a lot on the sessions conducted by his *** therapist mother, Jean, and picking up some knowledge, cash-strapped Maeve thinks it would be a good idea to open an underground *** clinic for the school where students can get some therapy in exchange for money. Otis is to be the therapist. via GIPHY Otis is apprehensive about ***. So much so, that he can't even masturbate. The thought of touching himself repulses him. To think about someone in a bad light and get pleasure from it? The expressway to hell. He believes it is bound to make him a bad person. via GIPHY And I couldn't help but compare it to the world we live in. We Don't Talk Anymore In our world, we never have a healthy discussion about ***. Where do babies come from? What is ***? What is masturbation? If the answers to the above questions were met with silence or some ridiculous answer, congratulations, you are a part of the myth-induced generation, most probably in your tweens now. According to Indian movies of the past, *** is two flowers intertwining and birds singing to each other as the actors on screen indulge in “sin”. via GIPHY The stigma around masturbation is real, we are told it is a terrible thing to do. Various myths surround it and even the mere mention raises eyebrows, not to mention the religious aspects. Indian parents have their go-to on *** ranging from “ignore whatever is happening” to the quintessential silence or the best alternative: avoidance. Worse, they instil fear about the topic. Who hasn't heard the myth that parents claim about kissing? “If you kiss someone, you can get pregnant. So, abstain!” (You got us there!) via GIPHY via GIPHY Studies suggest that nearly 88% of males and 58% of females never received *** education from home or schools. via GIPHY Only some parents take the “talk of the birds and bees” seriously and imbibe it from an age when the child does not become defensive about it. My parents encouraged the talk but to a certain extent. Of course, you can't ask everything from your parents, but they are there to give you the initial knowledge. The relationship we have with our parents is a precursor to being comfortable with them. The parent-child dynamic is of vital importance. There is some change in the newer generation though, parents today are savvier about the topic. Trust is essential in the relationship; you shouldn't shame a child for asking a question. '*** Education's' stellar storytelling focuses on the very delicate relationship between parents and children. And its repercussions on the latter's sexual initiation. via GIPHY In the series, Gillian Anderson, in a departure from her role as the uptight Special Agent Scully on 'X Files', plays Jean Milburn, Otis' overbearing mother who is a celebrated *** therapist. © Netflix Jean is overly intrusive in Otis' life, especially his sexual awakening (or the lack of it). She analyses every aspect of his life; his bedsheets, his notes, his books and his relationships. Otis is frustrated with her. Gillian Anderson is a phenomenon as Jean; whether it being confronting Otis about his pretend masturbating or snooping around his room when he specifically asks her to stay out. The best part of Jean is her advice; though a bit calculative, it is insightful. via GIPHY Jean is a cool mom; she is astute and shrewdly tackles problems, she smokes pot with Otis' friends, has no-strings attached relationships with her clients (mostly one-night stands), is friendlier to his friends more than him. Moreover, she has a very liberal and comfortable stance about ***. She encourages him to talk about it and share his experience. All this makes Otis even more uncomfortable. However, they share a strong relationship based on trust; Otis can speak to her when he wants to. via GIPHY In complete contrast is the principal of the Moordale Secondary School, Mr. Groff (Alistair Petrie), who can't stand to be in the same place where the word *** is uttered. He is a stern educator (on face value) and has a terrible relationship with his son, Adam. And a tendency to binge on chocolates when stressed. © Netflix In another wonderfully written episode focusing on the perception of *** by young people relating to an incident at school, he gets uncomfortable when the word vagina is repeatedly used by the students. He stands as the allegory of the society. The society which wants us to be good citizens, good people but also covers our eyes over brutal realities. Abhi Umar Hi Kya Hai! Being a teenager is hard (and being an adult is no piece of cake either). With so many hormones and emotions cruising through us and having a field day on the body and mind, it is natural to feel annoyed and cranky. Add to it the changes in the body and you have got the recipe for a complete train wreck. With nothing to guide us through the turbulent time, when something we can't understand seems to be happening to us and we are not being able to talk about it, we can't help but feel isolated. via GIPHY This is where *** education comes into play. Another oft-shrouded topic is the concept of sexual orientation. You are born a certain way. You can't help who you like, and you shouldn't try to change yourself just to fit in. In our society, people with a certain orientation, other than being straight, are looked down upon. Even after years of struggles and fights, the LGBTQ+ community faces harsh criticism and is ostracized. Though hope seems to be emanating with the recent abolishing of Section 377, it's a long battle till people change their mindsets. Talking about fitting in, we all try to fit in, try to change ourselves in order to please our peers, to be accepted. We let ourselves become someone else in the process of accommodating others. Otis' best friend, Eric Effiong (Ncuti Gatwa), is openly gay and loves to cross-dress. Like every other teenager, he is coming to terms with his sexuality. He is also fastidiously trying to get into the elite group of the school. He tries hard but keeps failing. He wants to be cool but is always the afterthought. © Netflix Also, it doesn't help that his religious father condemns his dressing up and is afraid of how the world perceives his son, though they share an immensely layered rapport which is rather intricate. © Netflix Eric's arc is a marvellous one. When he gets assaulted because of his sexuality, it opens up his mind to the truth of life; you are what you are, and you shouldn't let others influence your journey. *** Education: What is That? I cannot remember having a ***-Ed class ever in school. The chapter on “Reproduction “in Biology class garnered a lot of Cheshire-cat smiles from the students or discreet whispers and a lot of “ahem-ahem” from the teachers. What I do remember from the class is a lot of giggling from the students as the words “vagina” and “*****” were mentioned. A rush of uneasiness when the teacher (visibly uncomfortable while valiantly trying to teach) showed us a picture of the female reproductive system. A boy turning away when the slide showed us the diagram of the male reproductive system. Raucous laughter on the word “condom” and nervously twitching students when the topic progressed to abortion and safe ***. © Netflix The series has an episode where Otis gets humiliated in class when a video of his mother teaching how-to put-on condoms starts playing on the monitor. Mortified, he leaves the class as his classmates keep laughing and pointing at the screen. I would think I was lucky (even with the horror of sitting in a class where *** was the topic) as compared to my friends who were asked to read the chapter on their own. We have been fed with the notion that *** is something to be ashamed of. In pure puritanical style, we have been asked to listen and follow whatever is being doled out to us. via GIPHY Being curious is natural, especially when we are young, we tend to have an inquisitive outlook. More so about *** which seems to be a taboo topic. © Netflix As the series progresses, we find out the real reason behind Otis' trepidation about ***. And the reason for it is not uncommon. We have been coddled by our parents, who in an attempt to safeguard us from the harshness of life have hidden away important aspects of growing up. via GIPHY Thus, we have grown up with some quite weird ideas about *** and sexuality. Look at this video for instance! For a society which has been so sexually repressed and anything that mentions the word comes under criticism, we are obsessed with it. As they say, the more you make something forbidden, the more people want it. Banning something only leads people to know it more. Just because you won't talk to your child about *** doesn't mean that they will forget about it. via GIPHY Movies, novels, mainstream media, everything has a connotation leading to ***. Some do it through veiled references while some approach it directly. *** is that forbidden fruit. When one does not get it naturally, they turn to a different path which leads to either a complete misunderstanding of the concept or the person's eventual ruin. Not knowing what to do leads us to do things we shouldn't. © Netflix *** education does not teach us to have *** early, it isn't making children precocious, but the timing of the education is vital. It makes you aware of things which a young person should know. © Netflix Shockingly, 52% of young children in India have been sexually abused during the formative years, but the children are unaware of it, until later in life. The reason? They had never been told about the difference between a good touch and a bad touch. In a few instances, even if the children have spoken up, parents have shut them down in order to not deal with the societal shame it attributes. What will other people say? Log Kya Kahenge? The series focuses on Maeve Wiley, an apparently promiscuous teenager who has *** often and is labelled “cock-biter” by the students. She is a closeted genius; she puts on an armour of indifference (her quintessential “go **** yourself”) and a certain dumbness to counteract the facts of her life. Pink hair, dark makeup and an astounding personality. Between you and me, this role seems to be tailor-made for Margot Robbie. :P via GIPHY A drug-addled mother and an absent father have hardened her to never depend on anyone. “I am into complex female characters”, she says. © Netflix She finds them interesting because they parallel her life; she reads feminist literature, is a talented writer and a complete badass but she knows that her financial conditions limit her to a life of solitude and suffering at best. She uses dark humour as a coping mechanism. Also, it is the reason that when she finds love, she doesn't pursue it. Because she thinks that it only leads to sadness. She gets pregnant in the series and decides to get an abortion. In this brilliant episode, very poignantly essayed by the talented Emma Mackey, Maeve tries to understand what the ramifications it'll have on her. And how she copes with it. One of the best episodes of the 8-episode series. © Netflix Teen pregnancy is not limited to the West. It is a problem all over the world. We cut short our own resources by ignorance. *** education is more than just the physical act of ***. It is about knowing your body better, finding out what works for you. Everyone is clueless about *** when teenagers or even as adults; be it the act itself, your own organs or the results of having unprotected ***. What we can do is ask questions and we will find answers. View this post on Instagram HAPPY LAUNCH DAY ⣠A post shared by Emma Mackey (@emmatmackey) on Jan 11, 2019 at 3:24am PST Yes, it is imperative to ask the right person and go through the right material. It is time for parents and the youth to be proactive and attempt to start a healthy discussion about it. There is a lot of misconception about ***, further fueled by misleading articles on the Internet, the wrong type of pornography and weird ideas fed by society. One needs to understand it isn't how porn shows it. It isn't that easy or that graphic and it is done by actors. It is essential to remember that everything in moderation is good, even porn. Though, porn perpetuates an unrealistic view of *** it does provide some knowledge on the subject but not the real picture.[s1] Why I Liked The Show & Why I Think You Will Too On a superficial glance, the series might look like another teen angst-ridden high school drama but on closer inspection, it is so much more that. Though there is a considerable amount of nudity and some racy scenes, they are just a propeller of the show's narrative. What else do you expect from horny teenagers? :P *** is something which you have to understand with a lot of help. Your parents can provide you a perspective, but it will be theirs. Eventually, you have to get your own perception of it. This show helps in changing the way we perceive it, in a good way. The show features well-etched characters wonderfully essayed by the actors. The character development is flawless. The show tackles complex aspects in a very clever way; pushing the envelope but not being preachy. In its own witty way, through smart banter and clever dialogue, the show opens up about issues everyone faces, age notwithstanding. Asa Butterfield as the socially-challenged, sexually-repressed Otis is delightful. He plays the character so convincingly that you will relate to him easily. Then again, he was brilliant as Bruno in “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas”; I hardly know anyone who hasn't cried (or felt devastated at the least) after watching that movie. Another fascinating part of the show is how they have portrayed friendships. Friends are the people who help us through every phase of life. They are the ones we can talk to about stuff which we can't with others. © Netflix via GIPHY The bond between Otis and Eric is truly a beautiful one which will make you call your BFF right away! Maeve and Otis' budding friendship which starts off as a business transaction into a seemingly romantic one is something to look forward to. © Netflix Inclusivity is yet another part of the show, the storylines concerning the gay characters have been well-written and superbly executed. View this post on Instagram Tag the Aimee to your Maeve â¤ï¸ A post shared by Netflix US (@netflix) on Jan 24, 2019 at 10:59am PST Other standout characters are Ola, Aimee, Adam, Lily and Jackson. Lily (Tanya Reynolds) with her strong urges and body comfortability finds something new about herself which shocks her. © Netflix Aimee with her affinity to please, finally learns the truth about being a pushover. © Netflix Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling) is the star of the school: Head Boy, superb athlete with a bright future but a terrible secret. © Netflix Ola (Patricia Allison) with her quick wit, superb attitude and the apparent bisexual/queer vibe she sends (Season 2, maybe?), and Adam (Connor Swindells) with his brilliant portrayal of a bully with body issues and sexuality ineptness, steer the show to the winner it is. © Netflix The best part is that Otis gives advice to people on ***, though he is not entirely sure about the concept himself, and gets to realize what he is lacking, on the same journey. The show brilliantly shows us how we tend to not realize our faults and misgivings until we see it in someone else. Though Otis' therapist career is a bit Streisandian, with him mostly giving correct advice and being right quite a lot, it provides the necessary thrust to the narrative. © Netflix © Netflix With its teen angst omnipresent, this show has an 80s John Hughes movie vibe, while set in the UK with an American school backdrop, and it is sure to make you marvel at its genius. (Confused? I was, too! :P) The best thing it has done is that it has opened up discussions about ***, a much-needed education in today's society. It is a long wait until India opens up about *** education and comes up with a series (are you listening, Netflix India?) with it being the central theme, this series is enough to keep us entertained while getting educated. Go, watch it! Looking forward to Season 2!
  8. In case you've been living under a rock, Netflix is working on a live-action TV show of 'The Witcher' and the streaming giant just gave us its first take on the franchise. The beloved fantasy novel by Andrzej Sapkowski was first adapted to an even more loved Video Game series that is still revered as one of the best games in recent history. © Netflix The book has also inspired board games and other graphic novels since its release. In the books and the video games, witchers fight monsters, supernatural beings and other humans with a little bit of help with magic, swordplay and other abilities. Henry Cavill will play the iconic character 'Geralt of Rivia' while Freya Allan will play the character of Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Anna Shaffer as Triss. © Netflix Last night, Netflix teased Cavill's first look as Geralt and he looks uncanny when compared to the video game franchise. He doesn't speak a word and instead drinks his potion, a classic trademark move lifted from the video games. Get your first look at Henry Cavill in The Witcher! pic.twitter.com/1O2eWS1MkP — Netflix US (@netflix) October 31, 2018 The wig in the teaser may not have been of the best quality; however, to us, he still looked extremely convincing. One should note that this was just a screen-test and not the final look of the character. Sure, there is still a lot of room for improvement but this is the first time Netflix has shown us anything related to 'The Witcher' franchise.
  9. Dogs are too pure for this world and if you're a dog parent, you know that things like separation anxiety, having your doggo's picture as your wallpaper and having animated conversations with them is a legit, real thing. Turns out that Netflix is dropping a new documentary next month and it needs to be on your watch list. Titled as 'Dogs', it tells 6 heart warming tales of 6 dogs in different situations. The documentary gives you an insight of just how a dog is more than a pet for any dog parent. One story follows a pet parent trying to get his trapped dog from Syria, another story presents a family which explains how their pet is their differently- abled child's best friend, the stories will make tears of love fall down your cheeks. © Netflix © Netflix The documentary premieres on November 16th so just set an alarm already because you know you will be watching it. Now you can go back to thanking your dog for being in your life because you know it's true, only the lucky ones get loved by a dog.
  10. Horror movies and shows are not everyone's cup of tea, I would know, I'm a huge wimp when it comes to them. But, I feel like there is a huge amount of people who love to get scared out of their wits and look out for new horror stuff to watch, I mean that's why people keep making them. So, for people who enjoy the genre, they're always on the lookout for new stuff to watch and probably believe the scarier the better. And now, Netflix is here to fulfil everyone's wishes with some extremely scary stuff, that is literally not for the faint of heart. I'm guessing everyone has heard about the new Netflix Original – 'The Haunting of Hill House' – because everyone can't stop tweeting about it, because well, it's a little too scary. But, I guess since it's Halloween, 'tis the season to be spooked. But, first here's a little background on the show, it's loosely based on Shirley Jackson's 1959 gothic novel, 'The Haunting of Hill House'. It follows a “group of siblings who grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country, as tragedy forces them -- now adults -- back to the house to confront the ghosts of the past.” Here's the trailer- With people saying that they threw up and passed out because of the show, to some even claiming that they got an anxiety attack, it's safe to say this show is redefining the meaning of 'Netflix and Chill'. So, here are some tweets from those who have watched the show. If you have watched it already, you'll have people who understand and relate to you or if you haven't, then you get a fair idea of what you can expect and be prepared for it. Okay, then. The Haunting of Hill House on @NetflixUK is one of the most terrifying, nail biting, hide behind the couch, don't even breath, I'm going to pass out from fear things I have ever watched. In. My. Life. — Baby Jane (@babyjanequeen) October 13, 2018 Well, it's worth a watch. The haunting of hill house, if you like horror/thrillers you gotta watch it. If you dont you still gotta watch it! Its super well made and very good at telling a story. pic.twitter.com/eTr0vHjMd7 — ole (@oleee_96) October 16, 2018 Don't watch it before sleeping. Watching Haunting of hill house before bed wasn't the best idea pic.twitter.com/WppxjEa5qp — Lowri Davies (@LowDxx) October 14, 2018 I'm scared to watch, tbh. The Haunting of Hill House was brilliant but terrifying and I'll never sleep again — Maddie Taylor (@maddie__taylor) October 14, 2018 A recurring feeling. I made a poor decision in watching #HauntingofHillHouse prior to needing to go to sleep. Yes, for the record, I am an adult. Sometimes. pic.twitter.com/QS4vxU99Jo — Erin, PA-C (@tricoastie) October 16, 2018 Don't know what scene and don't want to find out. okay im watching the haunting of hill house and at first i thought i was going crazy bc i kept seeing faces in the shadows or continuity errors of bodies standing in windows but now im positive after this scene that it's absolutely purposeful and its terrifying to the bone pic.twitter.com/fAJ6WyNo1m — courtney van ness ð»ð§¡ð¸ð®ð·ð (@cjfeisty) October 15, 2018 Is it? The Haunting of Hill House has blown me away. The old haunted house tale is given a psychological revamp for the modern viewer: this is by far the most complex and complete horror series of its time. Compiled with eeringly rich, dark cinematic shots. #Netflix #ShirleyJackson — Nayab Chaudhry (@NayabChaudhry) October 15, 2018 Kinda want to watch it. HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE: Genuinely scary and creepy (a few jumpscares made me yell out loud), but it's the attention to character, the drama that unfolds within this family, that makes this show truly special. Great performances, stunning direction. Tearjerker. Don't miss it — Matthew Simmons (@MattSimmonsBSU) October 14, 2018 Do you really love it? Haunting of hill house is making me terror vomit in joyful confusion. So I love it. — SpookyLukeyð» (@RupaulFTompkins) October 13, 2018 Someone start a support group. Who is watching the Haunting of Hill House because I need to talk about it , potentially in the middle of the night when I can't sleep because I'm now afraid of the dark — Katelyn â­ï¸â­ï¸ (@Now_Voyageur) October 15, 2018 Yeah, you should stop. It's going to give me a fucking anxiety attack — suzanne (@boy_vomit) October 14, 2018 Don't watch it at night! I have made a critical error: I have continued to watch #HauntingofHillHouse after dark, and uh, I am seriously regretting it. pic.twitter.com/E8qnTzqQTs — Spooky Steph (@WriteOnSteph) October 14, 2018
  11. After teasing fans with small glimpses of its upcoming show 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina', Netflix has finally released the eerie teaser of the series, and it is nothing like what we expected. Made by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator of 'Riverdale', the show is a dark coming of age tale that introduces us to the world of witchcraft and occults like never before. © Netflix Starring Kiernan Shipka, who plays the lead, the show is one of the most highly anticipated reboots of the '90s sitcom 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch'. It wouldn't be wrong to say that we are highly impressed with the clip, even though it is scary AF. © Netflix The teaser opens with the strike of a match, a birthday cake that has 16 blood-candles being lit up and a spooky voice singing, “Happy Birthday” in the background. © Netflix The first episode will apparently start with Sabrina's 16th birthday, which is popularly known as a woman's 'Dark Baptism' in the world of witches. In the clip, she is supposed to give up her mortality and pen her name down in the Satan's book. © Netflix But for her, it's a struggle as she is half mortal too. It's a dilemma and a fight between her morals and her desire to seal a deal with the devil himself. Check out the creepy teaser here:
  12. Netflix is rolling out some great content in India proving that online shows are the next big thing, and we can't help but appreciate the level of good content being fed to us. © Netflix What started with 'Sacred Games', was followed by a three-part horror series 'Ghoul'. Starring Radhika Apte and Manav Kaul, this show is proof that India has arrived in the horror genre and we have finally gotten over the sleazy bhoot who was more into raunchy acts than actually scaring us. © Netflix Staying true to what it is supposed to be, this show is out and out filled with suspense, goosebump-inducing moments, the demonic phantom from the Arabain legends and gruesome sequences. The series brilliantly creates an aura that finally gives us a good horror show and stays honest to its content. © Netflix Set in the future, in a dystopian time, we see India under an authoritarian control. The show clearly talks about the political scenario and going by the nature of our public, it might offend a few. 'Ghoul' introduces us to various characters, their sins and how that is used by the evil spirit to feed on one's soul. Netflix has finally dropped the making video of the show and it's brilliant yet terrifying. We see Radhika Apte, Director Patrick Graham, producer Vikramaditya Motwane, Mahesh Balraj (Ali Saeed's character) talking about what all went into the making of the show. Even the BTS scenes are as gory and bloody as it can get. Check out the video now:
  13. The Indian world wide web has been abuzz lately with Netflix India's response to the jokes and memes that dominated Twitter just a little while ago with Radhika Apte taking the lead in yet another Netflix series 'Ghoul'. Innumerable memes like the one below began to do the rounds on the internet: When you open Netflix these days. pic.twitter.com/z0JawlbLPm — Bade Chote (@badechote) August 27, 2018 Sure enough, the message reached the Netflix India team and they made sure that the trolls knew their messages were being heard by playing along and owning up to the memes with an absolute show stealer for a response through this tweet: Whatever the role, Radhika apt hai. pic.twitter.com/H5vAI81qMG — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) August 27, 2018 However, Zomato decided to fish in troubled waters by joining in to take a dig at Radhika's 'versatility' with this tweet: And you thought only Radhika is versatile ð pic.twitter.com/nqfHikbeeU — Zomato India (@ZomatoIN) August 29, 2018 Zomato tried to present the versatility of Paneer through a list of dishes, suggesting that's a possible rival Radhika might wanna watch out for, but it was Netflix India's response to this tweet that made Twitter lose their calm. Here's what the Netflix India team had to say: Well, she is everywhere. pic.twitter.com/XcEw0OjtHf — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) August 29, 2018 Netflix team's witty comeback has stolen thousands of hearts wherein they yet again managed to to reiterate that Radhika is 'omnipresent' and can be found everywhere you look! Twitter can't stop laughing their hearts out it seems: Hahahha. Ith ka jawab Radhika se. https://t.co/tRMLYSuugi — Nishit (@i_EnVy) August 29, 2018 Netflix-1, Zomato-0 — Serendipity (@ConsiderMeHappy) August 29, 2018 Same. pic.twitter.com/fZEOLfgjsg — Buzzinga Digital (@BuzzingaDigital) August 29, 2018 @NetflixIndia admin deserves an appraisal !ðð#TooGood #GotNoChills https://t.co/c62P5BVyBf — Damini Thorat (@ThoratDamini) August 29, 2018 Miic Drop! Tweet of the century is here guys. Well Bloody played guys at @NetflixIndia https://t.co/XXraDxiMkM — Ashwin Fern&es | Social Media Ninja (@ashshanuferns) August 29, 2018 As for us, we're totally loving wherever this is headed. Radhika has given some stellar performances in 'Lust Stories' and 'Sacred Games', while the recently launched 'Ghoul' also looks promising. You wouldn't see us complaining any time soon, since we're loving the entertainment as well as the actor who has actively participated in this and dared to laugh at herself with the rest of the trolls.
  14. If there is good, there is also bad. If there are angels, there are demons. But have you seen one or ever experienced something paranormal that still keeps you awake at nights? We have heard of vampires, ghosts and demonic possessions, but have you ever heard about 'ghouls'? © josaul cl Netflix's upcoming series 'Ghoul' starring Radhika Apte, has already given us nightmares. From making our skin crawl to giving us goosebumps, the show already has all of our attention. Coming from the producers of 'Get Out' and 'The Purge', this show is indeed on our must-watch list, but what makes it so interesting is the mysterious creature they are talking about. © Netflix Many of us didn't know about this demonic presence until we saw the trailer. What is a 'ghoul'? Originating from pre-Islamic Arabian lore, a ghoul can easily blend with humans. It might be around you and you may never know. Call it an evil spirit or a demonic phantom, it can play with your mind and often indulge and manipulate you with your dark secrets. © Netflix Do you have a dark secret, or are you guilty of doing something wrong? Then that's exactly what they use to make you feel remorseful until they can feed on your flesh. It is believed that ghouls feed on dead bodies, especially those found in graveyards. It is a fiendish Jinn that thrives on your weakness and remorse. One needs to trade its soul to get in contact with the ghoul. © Netflix The trailer is pretty intense and will definitely send chills down your spine. All of a sudden, a plain old evil spirit sounds so much better in comparison, right. © Netflix The horror miniseries 'Ghoul' is a perfect psychological thriller where the devil haunts you from the inside and uses you as a weapon against yourself. What makes this series so interesting, is the fact that how the modern setting is infused with Arabian folklore. Set in a convert detention centre where terrorists are questioned and tortured by the military officials, the story introduces us to Nida, who is here to interrogate these people, only to realise that some of them are not from our world. © Netflix It's a fight, not just about truth, but about her survival because 'jo dar gaya samjho woh maar gaya.' While struggling, she finds out the evil hidden within various corrupt officers. As it is said, there is a demon within each one of us, it depends on us when we see it. © Netflix Cashing on the horror genre, a genre where most makers in India lack, this indeed looks like a promising show with edge-of-the-seat content. And now comes the new teaser-trailer, explaining everything about this scary legend that has got our hearts racing, and not in a good way! Check out this crazy clip now:
  15. With her commendable performance in 'Lust Stories' and 'Sacred Games', Radhika Apte has proved that she is one of the finest actresses in her league, who will not settle for anything less than extraordinary. In fact, with these two series, she has already raised the bar quite high for herself. But the good news is, that she is living up to the high expectations with every new project she is taking on. Netflix The latest feather in her cap of projects is 'Ghoul', a supernatural horror series in the backdrop of a military detention center. 'Ghoul' also happens to be Netflix's first Indian horror series and we're quite excited about this one, since its being helmed by production houses like Phantom Films and Blumhouse, who are credited for giving us movies like 'Udta Punjab', 'Queen', 'Get Out', 'Paranormal Activity' and the 'Insidious' series. Netflix Talking about the trailer, Radhika Apte plays the role of a promising soldier turned interrogator at a detention center, who doesn't think twice before getting her father arrested for his anti-national activities. However, when a mysterious man is brought to the detention center for interrogation, it turns out there's more to him than just being a prisoner. From here, the trailer takes a supernatural turn, with the writers and directors throwing every possible twist towards us, that's enough to make one skip a heartbeat. Instead of giving in, the prisoner “turns the tables on his interrogators, exposing their most shameful secrets.” 'Ghoul' is based on Arabic folklore and also stars Manav Kaul as Radhika's senior and Mahesh Balraj as the prisoner. Written and directed by Patrick Graham, 'Ghoul' will be a three-episode series and will release on August 24.
  16. It's always great to see Indian directors moving away from the clichéd topics, and coming up with content that will be loved by the millennial audience. It is refreshing to watch a film that's not from a dreamland where everything is about 'happy endings', but more realistic and veristic. Following that trend, Netflix has released the trailer of its second Indian film after 'Love Per Square Feet', 'Lust Stories' that's quite intriguing. © Netflix 'Lust Stories' is an anthology of four short films by famous Indian directors Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibakar Banerjee. The film weaves in four different stories with one common point, which brings modern relationships to life from a woman's perspective. This becomes the second film after 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' that portrays what love, lust, and betrayal is like from a female point of view. Call it a need of the hour or need of modern times, it's interesting how these topics are finally being given importance. © Netflix Starring Radhika Apte, Manisha Koirala, Bhumi Pednekar, Neha Dhupia, Kiara Advani, Vicky Kaushal, Sanjay Kapoor, Jaideep Ahlawat, Akash Thosar and Neil Bhoopalam in vital roles, every character in the film leaves an imprint in your mind with their sheer acting skills. © Netflix The first part shows a house help (Bhumi Pednekar) falling in love with the owner (Neil Bhoopalam). The second one highlights the issue of sexual dissatisfaction between a newly married couple Vicky Kaushal and Kiara Advani, a topic that's very much neglected in our country. We also see Neha Dhupia making a small appearance, though nothing much can be said about her role yet. Sanjay Kapoor, Manisha Koirala and Jaideep Ahlawat star in the third part which revolves around a marriage, its complications, and an extramarital affair. The final film, featuring Radhika Apte and Akash Thosar is about an unconventional modern relationship. © Netflix According to Netflix, " 'Lust Stories' is a contemporary take on real-life relationships through the lens of four women and their desires. The anthology film is a take on love, *** and everything in between!" © Netflix From raw emotions, unsaid words to deprived needs and wants, the tale brings up relationship issues that we often fail to address or shut ourselves out from discussing. The trailer boldly yet beautiful talks about *** and desire without making it sound crass. The trailer leaves you pondering and makes you question when was the last time you actually cared about your partner's sexual satisfaction? Just give it a thought! © Netflix Check out this new-refreshing take on modern relationship here: 'Lust Stories' will start streaming on Netflix from 15 June and we hope it's as interesting as it looks in the trailer!
  17. Brace yourself, as the trailer for Netflix's 'Sense 8' is out and we have been blown away by what the makers have in store for us. With an 8.4 IMBD rating, the show created a buzz and lost no time in garnering a massive and loyal fan following. Even though the news of the series going off-air has upset many, the trailer gives us hope that it will be a memorable ending after all. © Netflix A while ago, ardent fans started a petition online to save the show, and even though they didn't get another season, they are, however, getting a special two-hour episode. For all those who are wondering what happened to Wolfgang, your questions will soon be answered, however, we don't know how many loose ends will be left once the show is over. © Netflix The cluster is back again for a final mission, in the hope that love will conquer all. Keeping personal lives aside, the cluster is set to return with their sidekicks. You also have some unexpected allies coming together for a rescue mission and it's all about saving and protecting future of all Sensates. You also have our very own Purab Kohli in the show.

  19. The demand for more Netflix Original Series has been increasing over the last few years because let's face it, most of them are insanely good. And Netflix, being the excellent streaming service that it is, has been giving in to these demands. Venturing into different, unexplored genres is what Netflix has been trying to succeed at and its latest series is just another attempt at it. And from what we have seen till now, we have to say that it has done a good job. © Netflix 'Altered Carbon' is based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan. Set more than 300 years in the future, the series will portray a society which has been transformed by new technology. But before you dismiss it as another sci-fi series, read further and think again. It is set in a world where death is no longer permanent as consciousness can be digitized and transferred from one human body to another. The series would revolve around Takeshi Kovacs (played by both Joel Kinnaman and Will Yun Lee), a trained 'Envoy' soldier whose mind was imprisoned "on ice", for centuries after he survived a defeat in an uprising on another planet. © Netflix He wakes up again 250 years later on Earth as he is resurrected by a wealthy man named Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy) to investigate Bancroft's own death. © Netflix Bancroft was killed and the last automatic backup of his stack was made hours before his death. As a result of which he has no memory of who killed him and why. While police ruled it a suicide, Bancroft is sure he was murdered and wants Kovacs to find out the truth. © Netflix The story might be mind-boggling and even confusing for some, but the trailer shows some stunning action sequences in a futuristic world, offering a little more clarity. © Netflix Netflix describes the series as an "intriguing story of murder, love, ***, and betrayal." We aren't so sure about the 'love' part but the trailer has got us hooked. Have a look: The best part is that we don't have to wait much longer. All 10 episodes of Altered Carbon will begin streaming on Netflix on February 2, 2018.
  20. When Halloween is around the corner, expecting the release of new horror and crime shows and movies comes naturally. And since we also have the second Friday the 13th this year (that is today by the way), Netflix released the perfect show on this rather spooky day. If you are fan of crime-based TV series, then you are in for a treat as the new 10-episode Netflix crime series 'Mindhunter' dropped on the streaming platform today. It's based on Mark Olshaker and John E Douglas' 1995 non-fiction book, 'Mindhunter: Inside The FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit' and if you have ever wondered why some serial killers and rapists do what they do, then this one is a must watch for you. © Netflix Set in 1979, in the early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt Mccallany) interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how such criminals think and apply this knowledge to solving ongoing cases. To understand how depravity works, they go and speak to the depraved directly and trust us, some of these scenes will creep the hell out of you. © Netflix For a layman, it's hard to accept that serial killers and rapists are not always born evil but there's so really a lot to their story. This show might deal with a few disturbing concepts and cases and provide stark details that are challenging to deal with, but it will help you get clarity on all those dark questions that you ponder about every time you hear about a crime. It may be set 40 years ago but is weirdly the perfect crime series that millennials need to watch because whatever takes place in the show is still relatable to what is happening around us every day. The show is beautifully composed and tensely paced and has the celebrated auteur David Fincher as the show's creator, and also behind the direction of the first episode. Fincher has previously served as executive producer and director of the debut episodes of House of Cards in 2013. © IMDB 'Mindhunter' is the only other TV project he's worked on. Also, the notable Charlize Theron serves as executive producer. 'Mindhunter' is available to stream on Netflix now and we are warning you, it is darkly addictive. Watch the trailer here:
  21. Streaming service—Netflix—is a gift that keeps on giving with movies like 'Gerald's Game', and shows like 'Stranger Things', 'The OA' and 'Orange Is The New Black'. It is a great way to spend an entire weekend and binge watch season after season of addictive shows, creepy documentaries, and crime dramas. And, if the existing roster of shows weren't enough, Netflix is constantly upping their game and going ham with their horror offerings. Because it's October—the scariest month of the year. Also, because horror fans can never get enough of the 3 a.m. scare. © Netflix Talking about creepy scares—Netflix's new German show ‘Dark'—looks like a darker version of 'Stranger Things', and tells the tale of a modern German town that is torn apart when two children go missing. But rather than going down the true crime route—this menacing series gets incredibly twisted. ‘Dark' is 'the first Netflix original series entirely created, produced and shot in Germany,' according to a release from the streaming juggernaut. According to Netflix, ‘Dark' is "a family saga with a supernatural twist. Set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families. In ten, hour-long episodes, the story takes on a supernatural twist that ties back to the same town in 1986." © Netflix Speaking at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Netflix execs. further said, "It's really exciting because if all those people who watched [that show] will at least think about watching ‘Dark', I think that's a great opportunity for us. So keep comparing it." © Netflix 'Dark' will be available on Netflix on 1 December.
  22. <p>Many of us miss Saif Ali Khan's presence on the silver screen. The actor was last seen in Vishal Bhardwaj's period drama, 'Rangoon', which crashed big time at the box office.</p> <p>Though many criticised the script and the director, Saif's acting was appreciated by the critics. And for all those who love him, let us tell you, he already has some amazing projects coming our way. So we have his film 'Kaalakaandi', 'Chef' remake and 'Bazaar' coming up, but what has caught everyone's interest is his web series Sacred Games.</p> <p>This is Netflix's first star-studded Indian web-series, which is an adaptation of Vikram Chandra's novel of the same name. We will see Saif playing a cop and now even Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are roped in this project.</p> <p>The news has made us all so excited! After all who wouldn't want to see a series where we have these three wonderful actors all ready to entertain us. We already saw Nawaz and Radhika's chemistry on-screen in 'Manjhi' and 'Badlapur', but we can't wait to see these three together for the first time.</p> <p>As per reports, Saif might fall in love but nothing much is revealed about the other two, making everyone more curious about their part. Well, all we can say is that this definitely looks like one hell of a series. </p>
