Rangbaaz-Season 3

OTT : Zee 5

I have recently subscribed to Zee 5 and started watching this popular series. It was a fabulous one with gritty drama of crime, corruption, politics and is loosely based on real life of Md. Shamshuddin an MP and Criminal from Bihar.

The lead actor looks uncannily like him and acted fantastic. The entire series is gripping and has a criminal tinge (if there is something like that ) to it. All actors did very well to keep the storyline together.

A would give it a solid 4/5

How are the previous 2 seasons? Any feedback?

Also, please recommend must watch series/movies only aired on ZEE 5?

One of the best crime thrillers of recent times, I am surprised that there is no mention of the same here in the forum
This is what I posted a few pages back in this thread. Also, itís loosely based on Md Shahabuddin. All the previous seasons of Rangbaaz are very good too.

ZEE5 has some wonderful shows- some like Duranga, Kaafir, Rangbaaz, The Broken News etc are very good. Apart from that, they have the original TVF content as well. Enjoy.

Thanks. What a coincidence!

Last evening, started Duranga (by fluke) and completed 2 episodes. I understand it's a remake of a Korean series- Flower of Evil !!

What a gripping tale.

This one reminded me of my all time favorite series- Dexter

Look forward to catching up with other recommendations as well. Btw, what is TVF?

Anantham - Tamil

Pretty well portrayed about the lives of people who stayed in the same house over different time periods. The high rating on IMDb and Prakash Raj being the central character got my eye and it was a good watch.

Prakash Raj totally nails it and some of the other characters supported as well. The younger version of Prakash Raj is worth mentioning as well. Some of the stories felt a bit slow but thoroughly enjoyed it as a series.

Highly recommend it.

Rating - 4.5/5 (Available on Zee5)

Do watch 'The Defeated' (Netflix limited series). A brutal take on post-war Berlin divided into four zones by the allies. Frankly all series ought to be limited to six or eight episodes each. Long enough to develop story lines, short enough to move on to the next

Downloaded Amazon prime after long for this.

Already saw Panchayat's content used in the meme below.
Although 25 mins episodes like seems commercially motivated like Jamtara.
Still would recommend it 5/5.

Old one : but classic British comedy with dollops of satire and sarcasm. Totally worth your weekend : https://www.dailymotion.com/playlist/x1vfo2, The Thin Blue Line, starring Rowan Atkinson.

Some recommendations - in the order I watched.

Candy - miniseries on Disney+ Hotstar
A crime drama based on true events. Climax is unsatisfying but then it is based on true events, so they had to stay true to the original story.

The night of - miniseries on Disney+ Hotstar
Again a crime drama/thriller. Pakistani guy in for murder and how it transforms him. Story wanders around a little. In fact it is like 2-3 stories blended into one.

Sharp Objects - miniseries on Disney+ Hotstar
Crime drama/thriller, not an easy watch at times. There is an air of uneasiness throughout the 8 episodes and it all culminates into an explosive ending.

I watched this and loved it - good old fashioned spying, lots of old Mercedes Benz's and Lucy Boynton is just so lovely

Currently watching "Elementary" Season 2 in Prime. [Sherlock Holmes]
Season 1 was good! Season 2 seems a bit heavy. I'm in the 10th Episode as we speak. Let us see how the rest of the season pans out.

Homeland - Season 8 - Disney Hotstar

In the pre-OTT era, i distinctly remember buying a paid subscription to Star World Premier just to watch Homeland. What a fantastic show it used to be. A couple of the following seasons were still very good but it got overshadowed by too many shows on OTT. The last season got released in Feb-Apr 2020, and again probably got overshadowed by the pandemic. While browsing for shows to watch, I somehow chanced upon this. And a fantastic find it was.

The scene is back to the AfPak region before the US troops pulled out of Afghanistan; the US and the Taliban are drawing up a ceasefire/peace plan. Some of the dialogues are uncannily prescient and candid about what would happen when the US troops leave (the US troops finally withdrew in Aug 2021). Some of the plot lines are implausible but the action is fantastic, the acting by Claire Danes is expectedly top-notch, pace is excellent, and the series ending is very satisfying.

Rating - 4/5

ps - with the Ukraine-Russia war raging, now might be a good time to bring back Carrie Mathison for Season 9 .
