Despite it just being just a series, we tend to feel an emotional connection, not just with the characters but with the plotline as well, as if it’s your own story. That is how important it is to pick the right series, so you don’t waste your tears on something that turns out well, boring, or pointless. Here are seven gripping web series that have you binging for 10-12 hours straight. These aren’t your regular “Oh My God, you have to watch it” but some hidden treasures that’ll find a way to your heart.
7 Underrated Indian Web Series
With the remarkable Rajkumar Rao in the lead, there is no way the acting wouldn’t be near about ‘perfect.’ He plays The Indian hero, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s character based on Anuj Dhar’s book. Moreover, if you’re a history enthusiast, this series will capture you. “India’s Biggest Cover-Up,” the book is of a colonial set-up. It shows the great revolution that brings out the patriotism within every Indian and a wave of emotions you were not expecting.
Who doesn’t like a smart-thriller, a crazy chase between a mad serial killer and a CBI officer? Arshad Warsi makes a debut in web series with a narrative that doesn’t go quite with Indian mythology, making it a lot more interesting.
THE FINAL CALL
Have you read “I Will Go With You; The flight of a Lifetime”? For all those who are not much of a reader, this series is the perfect way to go through the book. With Arjun Rampal, Javed Jaffrey, and Sakshi Tanwar as the cast, this brings out just the right amount of fear to experience craziness, gratitude, and suspense that might kill you, quite literally. This series is based on the plot with a suicidal pilot as lead, fixed on crashing the aircraft as a suicide attempt.
THE RAIKAR CASE
The drama of a family in itself is quite fun to watch. Now imagine having to live in one with a murderer. This suspense-thriller will have you intrigued until the end. So buck up to find out whois the one with a motive except that they all are.
OUT OF LOVE
A classic husband, wife, and “woh” drama that will grab your attention. We have all seen Rasika Dugal is a stunning actress, and through this series, we expect nothing less. This series will have you questioning when the ‘wife on a mission to find the truth’ looks for evidence of infidelity by her cheating husband, played by Purab Kohli.
Quite like Tigmansu Dhulia’s Paan Singh Tomar, this story is about a model student, a good scorer who becomes a gangster who then rises to power. It is a well-directed series with Saqib Saleem playing the protagonist. It has a rather nice cast, including Tigmanshu Dhulia; it looks like one FIR couldn’t deter him from his love for the plot.
With iconic celebrities like Kalki Koechlin, Mandira Bedi, Gulshan Devaiah, and several others as cast, the series already sets a strong vibe. This is probably the safest way to visit Goa right now and shows survival in stacked crime. But make sure to follow the age limit as this might ruin your image of Goa, and most importantly, watch it at your own risk.
