The Family Man
Another great Amazon Prime Original. The Family Man created by Raj & D.K. starring Manoj Bajpai is truly spectacular. It shows us the story of a spy.

I was never a Kay Kay Menon fan since the beginning, but this show made me fall in love with him. Created by special 26 fame Neeraj Pandey this show is a beauty.

Karan tacker played an important role along with Kay Kay Menon and this show is a true beauty, available on Disney+ Hotstar.
This show is the reason we love Arshad Warsi so much. Asur created by Voot and directed by oni Sen stars Arshad Warsi and Varun Sobti in lead roles. The story is very twisted and dark which makes the show even more interesting. The show is based on a serious of serial killings. This show made quite a bit of controversy for having a heavy influence of Hindu mythology, but that only makes it darker and interesting. This show will truly welcome you to your dark side.
