Top 10 Indian Web Series

As we ease out of the lockdown, we still need to follow all the government rules and guidelines. We may be allowed to step out, but the virus is out there already. In between work from home and all the house chores and catching up online with friends, we need to carve out for ourselves that little time where we indulge in a bit of drama, romance, suspense and be transported into another world free of corona virus. 

With so many options like dish tv, online streaming platforms and connectors, we are surrounded by platforms that give us the best content we have consumed in probably the last two decades. With exceptional shows and great acting, we’re finally getting to watch quality content with actors who actually know what they’re doing. 

We are now in an age where we are given the choice to watch episodes periodically, or binge on an entire serious without taking a break. We have the option to pause, rewind and re-watch if we want to. We have the privilege to switch and watch our favorite shows any time of the day and any time of the week. We are no more time bound to the schedule that the television channels used to give us.

With more and more interesting content coming on the platforms every week, the one thing that has most of us stumped is – what should I watch? It is true that too many options can get extremely confusing. When you pick up something to watch and it’s not as interesting as you thought, that can affect your mood. So, to make your list easier, keep scrolling to find out the top 10 Indian web series right now.

Four More Shots is a light comedy show that revolves around four single women in the city of Mumbai. Coming from different backgrounds and on different career paths, the four single women navigate through life and the city in the best way that they can. Although the series has been in the news for not portraying feminism in the best manner, the web series playing on Amazon Prime Video is a light watch for someone who is not looking to add logic to their binge session. It takes us through the ups and downs of what it means to be a woman, but never clearly hits the point. With a run time of approximately 30 minutes, the show is often compared to Sex and the City, with more alcohol and less sass.
