The year of 2019 started with a boom!
It had some amazing sketches which left us into the dilemma of being the best among all. It changed our perspectives about the web series industry. It made us cry and laugh, giggle and sob at the same time. We had it all. Now, we expect more. We are expecting better in the upcoming time as our landmark has been set a little higher from the core level. Beneath are some of the interesting series to watch this monsoon:
Sacred Games 2
The last season took everyone’s breathe away. The season justified the hype created in the promotion stage. The piece was more crisp and phenomenal than expected. It raised bars for the web series industry.
The story revolved around ‘Aamchi Mumbai’, a place where night speaks different language compared to the scorching day. A police officer was challenged about protecting his own city, where politicians sold off themselves under table. He is loyal and tries every possible way to do anything which comes his way, a rarity in today’s time where money corrupts loyalty. In the first season Radhika Apte was outstanding in her performance. In this upcoming season she would be accompanied by Kalki Koechlin, who is expected to rock this new season along with Pankaj Tripathi. Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan has all done and dusted with their best directorship for this upcoming season. The season would be streaming live on Independence Day i.e. 15th August, 2019.
The first season of Mirzapur shocked the audience and left them in complete despair. It reached high controversies in web series world and left everyone in question about UP. It is a reflection of grey area of states where politics is run by local ‘Bhaiya ji’s’ and not the actual politicians, where law is just a word and never acted upon. The local demons are so powerful due to heaps of money lying in their backyards that they often forget to learn the word Humanity. In the second season, the director Gurmeet Singh has tried to eliminate the controversial part as much as possible to avoid unnecessary blames on characters and release. The mafia’s are expected to be a little kind to their fellow citizens in the upcoming season.
Bard of Blood
The posters of upcoming series have raised hope for every web series viewer. It is staring Emraan Hashmi as main character along with few important ones like Amyra Dastur, Shashank Arora, Kirti Kulhari, Sobhita Dhulipala, Vineet Kumar Singh, Jaideep Ahlawat, Suhail Nayyar, Amit Bimrot, Akshat R Chopra and Ajay Mahendru. The title itself justifies the series would involve an intelligence and detectivisim as main highlights. The audience has more hope on Emraan Hashmi as it would be his first Digital Debut. It is also Shahrukh’s first digital produce which makes audience even more hopeful. The show would stream live on September 27, 2019.
Inside Edge 2
The first season was entirely based on the life and careers of cricketers. The entire storyline of IPL was shown off with a slight tough of narcissism of actors. It goes a bit off track when it takes a turn towards drugs and other awful practices which comes handy with fame. It somewhat looked fake and couldn’t do justice to the story. Sex and drugs had nothing to do with the actual portrayal of story as it should have been focused on positive part of cricketer’s life like how did they reach so far and not the afterlife. However, in the upcoming season, the hopes are not too high in the form of acting yet it is high in form of storylines. It must involve the journey behind success and how it makes a legacy. A lot of questions are expected to be answered in the upcoming season.
Bahubali: Before The Beginning
We still can’t get over this movie, can we? Every single time we watch the same scenes, it gives us sheer goose bumps. We are still in dilemma about the after effect as well as the before part of the movie. SS Rajamouli hit everyone’ heart at the right place and made it work.
The director Deva Katta has similar intentions. His curiosity dwelled in and we are receiving the content soon. The content would roll around the role of Sivgami and her journey to Mahishmati. The audience would not be satisfied with anything less than they received in Bahubali 1 and Bahubali 2. It is a real challenge for the core team to perform either the best or get leaked to the controversies for the bad performance. The release would soon be announced on Netflix.
