For the first time, two web series starring former Bollywood divas Sushmita Sen and Raveena Tandon are at the top of our weekly suggestion list.
The two are set to star in two of the most eagerly awaited online shows. In Season 2 of her hugely successful Aarya, former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen leads the cast. Raveena Tandon, on the other hand, makes her digital debut with Aranyak, a thriller.
Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam, a desi noir anthology series, is also in the mix. This series stars a number of well-known Pakistani actors.
Aarya Season 2:
The Emmy-nominated show’s second season will follow Aarya, an indefatigable mother who isn’t afraid to push moral lines in order to protect her family and children.
The happy married woman’s world was flipped upside down when her husband was shot, and family intrigue and criminal groups ran circles around her in the first season. The same plot is naturally expanded in the second season, with comparable variations. Aarya is up against Russian drug lords this time, as well as local lumpen members. Her tenacity and bravery must once again save the day for her family. Ram Madhvani, who recently directed the successful film Dhamaka, directed the series.
Raveena Tandon, a former Bollywood actress, is experimenting with streaming platforms with this online series. Patthar Ke Phool, a film produced by GP Sippy Films, marked her feature debut in 1991. And now, with Sippy Films, she’s making her OTT debut. In that way, she is returning to the beginning of her career. Raveena plays Kasturi, a detective entrusted with tracking down a missing young tourist.
The crime thriller follows an under-pressure woman cop as she investigates the disappearance of a foreign teenage tourist in a misty town and becomes hot on the trail of a bloodthirsty serial killer in a dark sylvan hill. In the process, she is forced to team up with a male counterpart who is attempting to take her place. He is completely devoted to her.
The series will be a visual treat in addition to the thrills of murder and mystery.
Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam:
A Pakistani cast dominates this female-centric neo-noir thriller directed by a British Indian woman. This alone should pique your interest. Meenu Gaur, the director, has stated that she intended to present a feminine viewpoint to the story of femme fatales.
According to the director, the anthology poses the question, “What would you fight for?” ‘What would you give your life for?’ Each episode is themed around a question of this nature. And the allure is in the fact that different people have various solutions to the same question. The trigger is love in one episode and duty in the other. In the numerous episodes, homicides are motivated by passion, justice, retribution, power, and revolution. The entire series gives us a glimpse inside the human soul, and what we see is a disturbing mirror.
