6. Four More Shots (2019)
It’s a complete feminist show, and the story revolves around four friends dealing with anxieties of modern-day love-life conflicts, work-life issues, and so much more. Starring Sayani Gupta as Damini Roy, Kirti Kulhari as Anjana Menon, Gurbani as Umang Singh, and Maanvi Gagroo as Siddhi Patel.
This is a rather controversial series that has a major backlash in India and is still it’s trending on the Amazon platform because of its uniqueness. We have never seen such bold stories about women in any other Indian web series.
However, in my opinion, this show portrays feminism to be just about alcohol, abusing men, and casual making out. They are making stupid decisions in the name of women’s empowerment. Umm, they could have addressed women’s real issues in a much better way.
Still, season 2 and 3 was way better than season 1 as it takes us through the journey of the characters and has a bit more logic to their actions. Such bold series are bound to stir up controversy among Indian audiences.
However, this is a good one-time watch and is quite refreshing. Thus, you need to watch this one and form your own opinion.
7. Farzi (2023)
This Hindi web series on Amazon Prime revolves around an artist turned con man. Starring one of the best talents, Shahid Kapoor, as Sunny and Vijay Sethupathi as Michael Vedanayagam. Farzi is a mix of crime, thriller, suspense and a bit of romance as well.
Shahid Kapoor has nailed this one and yet again prove himself to the audiences. His character Sunny gets into the world of crime and starts printing fake currency. Farzi created a lot of hype, especially among the youth, and it’s totally worth it!
So if you are a fan of thrillers, this one is the perfect choice for you, so what are you waiting for? Start streaming Farzi on Amazon Prime Videos.
