- Delhi Crime 3
Starring Shefali Shah, Rasika Dugal, and Rajesh Tailang in pivotal roles, Delhi Crime was renewed for another season by Netflix last year (2023). The third season’s storyline will delve deep into the investigation carried out by the Delhi Police and promises to be as captivating as the previous seasons. This critically acclaimed Emmy Award-winning series is a must-watch for all crime thriller genre enthusiasts.
- Killer Soup
Loosely based on a true-life incident, Soup is the story of Swathi Shetty (Konkona Sensharma), an incompetent cook who dreams of having a restaurant of her own someday and her suspicious husband, Prabhakar (Manoj Bajpayee) who won’t help with her aspirations and has doubts of his own. Soon fate gives her an opportunity and she starts to cook up a master plan. But things don’t go as intended, as whimsical characters and amateur villains ruin the broth.
- Heera Mandi
It is an epic, which tells the stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of Heera Mandi, a dazzling district, of pre-Independent India. On the other hand, it is a pure historical drama, that highlights the life condition and political background of courtesans and their patrons during the 1940s. After creating a buzz on social media, the filmmaker Sanjay Bhansali unveiled the teaser of the web series on February 18, 2023.
- Amar Singh Chakila
Amar Singh Chamkila, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra, has been added to Netflix’s impressive lineup of future films. Imtiaz Ali’s film tells the untold true tale of Amar Singh Chamkila, the first mass-appeal rockstar from Punjab who gained notoriety in the 1980s through the sheer force of his music. However, he was assassinated at the age of 27. Chamkila was the best-selling musician of his era and is still considered among the greatest performers Punjab has ever produced.
Since AR Rahman is in charge of the film’s score, moviegoers will get to experience the brilliance of a Rahman-Imtiaz partnership once more. Diljit and Parineeti have lent their voices to a few of the tunes, which just adds to the anticipation.
Streamer Netflix on Wednesday unveiled the trailer of Bhumi Pednekar’s upcoming movie “Bhakshak”, about an investigative journalist who tries to expose a heinous crime.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s banner Red Chillies Entertainment has backed the crime drama, which is inspired by true events. The film is directed by Pulkit and will debut on Netflix on February 9. The film follows Pednekar as journalist Vaishali Singh as she uncovers the stories of abuse at a girls’ shelter home. It also stars Sanjay Mishra, Aditya Srivastava and Sai Tamhankar.
- Murder Mubarak
The second week of February 2024 begins with a big announcement from Netflix. The streaming platform, which announced the Heeramandi series just a few days ago, has revealed another big original title. It’s a murder mystery film titled Murder Mubarak. We all know Netflix’s love for mysteries and thrillers, and one can hope that this one turns out to be better than everything we saw in the past.
The movie is based on Anuja Chauhan’s book titled ‘Club You to Death’. The book’s synopsis mentions that it is a whodunnit story to find the killer responsible for the death of a hunky personal trainer in Delhi. At Delhi’s posh Turf Club, the trainer was choked to death. As seen in the announcement teaser, there are seven suspects from different backgrounds. One of them is the murderer, hiding cleverly in plain sight.
