With weekend and monsoon approaching, staying at home and doing exactly nothing can’t get any better. Or it could? Well, maybe, if you have hot crispy pakoras to feast on and a thrilling web series to behold.
But which one?
That is a million-dollar question. With so many web series across various genres available on the web, aka streaming websites, choosing which one to give your valuable time can’t get any harder. However, this post has some suggestions to spare.
Putting an end to the never-ending hunt for the right title, below, we have rounded up the best international as well as Indian best web series you can binge-watch this week.
The 5-episode Indian web series Typewriter is the newest offering, if you are a fan of horror entertainment. Streaming on Netflix, the series is a story of 3 friends, who plan to search an old villa for a ghost in the timelessly favourite backdrops of Goa. However, the story takes chilly turns and twists when a new family moves in, and the concealed truths about the villa unfurl.
Starring Arna Sharma, Aaryansh Malviya, Palomi Ghosh, Milkail Gandhi and Palash Kamble, the story has ample plot twists to keep you hooked to your couch. An old family home. A new family moving into it. Puzzling incidents. A string of deaths. And monsoon. What else one can ask for?
2. The Holiday
Craving a holiday this monsoon but well-aware that you can’t afford one? Well, why not ward off the blues streaming “The Holiday” this weekend – a series that will give you “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” vibes. The Indian web series by Zoom studios is a story about four friends who are off to Mauritius to celebrate their friend Mehak’s Bachelorette.
However, what they expected to be an alcohol-fueled adventure in the glimmering Mauritius turns otherwise as it is revealed that one of the friends is now under pressure to complete a presentation by the weekend. From allurement to story, the series has everything that makes it binge-watch worthy.
3. Stranger Things 3
Stanger things 3 is one of the best web series in 2019. Only a few shows manage to weave together a complex yet exciting fiction with drama, story and every other ingredient that makes a web series in place, and Stranger things 3 is that show.
The 3rd season of this series is slightly shorter, yet the best. It is set to focus on the life of an imaginary town of Hawkins. The Netflix series manages to tap every emotional vein of childhood with refreshing humor, newbie monsters, and summer sunshine. Watch it under peer pressure or just because you want to, Stranger Things 3 wouldn’t disappoint.
Yet another horror delight, Parchhayee, is a series of paranormal stories that you can binge-watch with your family – only if they let you. ZEE5 Original Parchhayee is based on Ruskin Bond’s stories, so the episode has a retro texture to it, and that is what makes it worth every minute you spend watching it.
The first episode of the series features a young boy who lives with his grandmother. The boy’s life and the story takes a turn when he dreams of a mysterious woman, who has committed suicide by hanging herself from a nearby tree. Watch the rest to unveil the rest.
5. Summer Love
Monsoon is synonyms to romance, and a web series suggestion post without a mention of romantic drama won’t make sense. Thus, if you are into the romantic genre, then “Summer love” is one series you must be watching right now. Starring Vardah Aziz (Nida) and Hadi Bin Arshad (Sami) the series revolves around the concept of “opposites attract”.
Witness how Sami, burned by love, decides not to pop his feelings to anyone including the lovely Nida and, apparently, falls for her? We have no idea. Running at a short ten minutes per episode, the series is a delight to behold.
