Many streaming companies are attracted to India because of its improved internet infrastructure. Currently, Hotstar is the largest streaming facility which gained 150 million active monthly users by offering most of the local channels.
Netflix and Amazon are trying hard to beat the competition with Hotstar. Recent days Indians are showing interest in online streaming channels but again it depends on the monthly or yearly charges.
Netflix is the largest streaming company in the US is charging ₹500 per month in India. Whereas Amazon prime video monthly membership is ₹129 which is almost the same as the monthly Digital TV subscription. Along with Prime Video subscribers can also enjoy music, fastest delivery and prime deals on Amazon.
Considering Indian Internet usage in mind, these days Amazon is concentrating more on Indian Entertainment stuff. Currently, there are many Hindi shows on Amazon Prime and most of them are Prime ORIGINALS.
Counting all the benefits from Amazon Prime video over Netflix I must say Amazon is way ahead to beat the competition from Netflix. Try taking Amazon subscription for a month I’m sure you are gonna enjoy the movies and shows.
Here is the list of Hindi shows on Amazon Prime;
How far can you go to protect your loved ones? Women stealing bread might look like a thief to society but she will be a hero to her children who can satisfy their hunger. This doesn’t mean that society should accept sympathy based crimes. Crime is always a crime. Breathe is one of such series which makes you think who is right and what is right.
Amazon along with Madhavan created this crime thriller show ‘Breathe’ which shows the extraordinary circumstances faced by an Ordinary man to save his dying child. This is one of the best Hindi web series on Amazon Prime. Madhavan acted as a caring, loving single parent to a 6-year-old son Josh. Everything goes upside down when Danny (Madhavan) came to know about Josh’s Congenital lung disease.
Josh can be survived only by the organ donation. God has not given them any choice other than waiting for an organ donor to die. As time passes Danny gets more tensed about his son’s life. What can be more heartbreaking than watching your kid die in front of your eyes? Danny finds his own ways to save Josh.
Along with Danny-Josh story, a story of a cop runs parallel. This cop who is investigating series murders of Organ donors is repenting about the death of his own daughter.
What happened to Josh & Danny cannot be revealed because that is where the suspense of the story lies. Amith Sadh has given his best as a tough and rough cop. Atharva(Josh) calling his father as ‘Daada’ is the cutest in the entire series. Madhavan being in the lead role will not disappoint you. Breathe is one of the worth watching show in Amazon prime.
Laakhon Mein Ek
After watching Breathe I started searching for Hindi shows on Amazon Prime. To my surprise, the list was little big and Laakhon Mein Ek is one of them.
Where are we heading with our education system? It has become one of the biggest money-making business. Today education is a prestige than the knowledge. We often force our ambitions on our children and never listen about their dreams.
This show portrays the ugly realities of the Indian Education system. Laakhon Mein Ek is a story of a boy who wants to be a mimicry artist but his father forcibly admits him in IIT coaching institution.
Akash tries hard to study, struggles to get good grades but he couldn’t help himself to cope up with the syllabus. This puts a lot of pressure over a 15-year-old Boy which drives him crazy.
Disappointing results, Being in the notorious D section, tough living situations in the hostel makes Akash more and more frustrated. He lies to his parents about his Academics progress.
What makes this show more interesting that there is no dragging or overacting. It delivers exactly what it is made for. Most importantly it shows the hype of Indian coaching centers who act like profit-making machines.
Take away message is, not everyone can be an IITan, not everyone has to take science in their academics, education is important but doing what makes you happy is more important.
Since this is a teenager journey most of the actors are teenagers who have done an excellent job. Scripting, direction, screenplay, and acting is totally brilliant.
Are you a cricket fan? Then you should definitely watch this series. It depicts some dark secrets, ugly truths of India’s famous sports cricket.
Inside Edge is the first Hindi Web series by Prime Originals. Though this is made for a small range of viewers screenplay and direction is not less than any movie and there is no compromise in quality.
Cricket is mainly played by politics, bribery, eluding, crisis, fixing, Inferiority complex, pressure, sex, fame, ego… This show is based on Indian Premiere league, series of incidents that takes place from the first match of Powerplay league till the final.
Mumbai Mavericks is one of the reputed team with talented players like Arvind Vashisht, Vayu Raghavan. Benefitting the bankruptcy of previous owner, Vikrant Dhawan(Vivek Oberoi) buys mavericks team whose co-owner is Zarina Malik (Richa Chadha).
Vikranth’s only intention is to make money from spot-fixing of his own team. Most of the players sell themselves for the money however Aravind, Vayu & new joinee Prashanth Kanaujia were hard to deal for any bribe.
Vikranth was ready to go to any extent to make his business partners happy. He frightens players with their past scandals, broken relationships, family sentiments… Forcefully keeping Zarina Malik on his side, he moves all the cards from his deck.
The story takes a dramatic twist when Vayu Raghavan agrees to Vikranth’s deal. The final match of Mumbai Mavericks gives billions of money to Vikranth & his partners just because of Vayu. But that is not the end of the story.
Every episode has its own twists and surprise elements. As the commentary continues for every ball you will be jumping out of curiosity to know what happens next. Inside edge show is proof how Cricket has become business than a sport in India.
Vivek Oberoi has got a good role to make his comeback. His acting is too static compared to others in the show. He could have given more weight to his character. Richa, Angad (Arvind), Tanuj (Vayu), Siddant (Prashanth), Amit (Devendar), Sayani (Rohini) who covers most of the screenplay have given their best.
I must say Inside Edge is one of the best Hindi Shows on Amazon Prime.
Life has become full of Social media, internet sensation, viral, trending, hashtag, likes, comments and subscribe. We have lost ourselves in the digital world. The Internet is like medicine, an overdose may cause many side effects.
Going viral is made on internet freaks who are stupid enough to believe anything from the web. Being famous in social media is like being rich in Monopoly. Nothing is permanent in e-world.
Going Viral is a startup company running by @Gaurav and his wife Natasha. They have a foreign sponsor who always wants to see Going viral videos on the top trending list. This company can make anybody viral on the internet.
They know how people prefer watching a video of a person dancing with a monkey than a person talking about national development. They know that people will watch any shit which says viral on it.
The best part of this series is when a politician comes to these guys seeking online publicity. When they make a video of him talking about slum development nobody cares. However, his ‘I watch porn’ video goes viral and he gets thousands of followers.
Though the show had made in a funny manner it showcases the true color of e-audience. It might not impress everyone but people who are light-minded and loves sarcasm will definitely give thumbs up.
Kunaal Roy Kapur as @Gaural has stolen the entire show. His witty acting made me laugh throughout the series. Will the Mad company including Nathasha, Peon, Frehan succeed to hold the company in top trending list or everything turns out as a disaster? Watch on Amazon prime to know more.
Pushpavalli, a Tamil Brahmin girl pursuing her food science degree in Bhopal, one day attends a food conference. There she meets the handsome hunk Nikhil from Bengaluru who was quite jovial with her.
Puspavalli takes Nikhil’s sweet talks too seriously and decides to move to Bengaluru just to find Nihil. Meanwhile, her mother tries to convince her for marriage by sending boys photographs whom Pushpavvalli rejects with one or the other reason.
Finding a job at her friend’s library who is very short tempered, dealing with PG aunty Vasu who abuses her every morning for rent was not easy for Pushpavalli. But she endures all the pain just because of Nikhil.
She successfully finds Nikhil with the help of Chaiwala but finds out that feelings are not mutual between them. Pushpavalli constantly tries to impress Nikhi, Stalks him but her efforts go in vain when Nikhil finds out the truth about her.
It feels like they have stretched the story little more than required. However, Sumukhi has done an excellent job in creating this series all by herself.
Acting-wise, Shraddha emerges as the best among all other characters. As a PG aunty, she makes you laugh with her ‘Paashupalli’ tone. Pankaj who is Pushpavalli’s friend screams irritably and uses F-word in every sentence. Nikhil, Swati and other PG mates actings are fair enough for their respective roles.
If I have to write in the Order “Top 6 Hindi Shows On Amazon Prime” then Mirzapur would take third place after Breathe & Inside Edge. The making of this show will blow away your mind. The quality, the cinematography is not less than any Cinema.
Before going to review, let me warn you! This series is full of foul language, crime and contains sexual scenes.
The story revolves around a man who is THE don of Mirzapur. He runs drugs business, involved in illegal activities, and always breaks the law. Every other common person in Mirzapur is tired of Khaleen Bhaiya’s criminal activities but nobody has the question to question him.
While everyone has given up, there comes a man Ramakant Pandit, a lawyer who takes a case against Khaleen Bhaiyaa. Situations turn upside down which makes Ramakant’s sons Guddu & Bablu join Khaleen Bhaiya. Khaleen’s son Munna is one unsatisfied soul who wants to come to power & take Mirzapur under his control.
Money and power attract them but they never imagined their future. Series of Incidents take place and the climax has an unexpected twist.
I’m eagerly waiting for the second season to know what happens with Khaleen Bhaiya, & Ramakath Pandit’s family.
If you are interested in Crime thrillers then Mirzapur should be in your list.
Four more Shots Please!
Well, this show doesn’t belong to the list BEST.
I’m going to review this series here because it makes easy for you to choose the best one among this list.
Four more shots please is the story of 4 women who meet each other accidentally in a bar. Then they develop friendship between each other sharing their stories and being part of each other’s life.
They have their own problems hence the world looks complete naive to them. For them being strong means smoking in the streets, drinking all night and having sex with multiple men.
A complete feminist show (In fact, they have misunderstood the concept of feminism). They could have shown the female characters more strong by using this platform. The creator f this show has seen a lot of Bollywood movies & Youtube videos hence copy pasted the same concept. There is nothing new in this show.
Four more shots please could have been better if they have highlighted the real problems that women are facing in recent times. Such as education for girls in villages, women in politics, sexism etc could have been highlighted in a better way.
The quality and making of this show are better but it’s of no use! Partying, Sex, Smoking, Open relationships, talking about Di*k & Pe*is is not women empowerment! You can watch this show just to see the level of feminism
Made in Heaven
India is famous for Spices, Internet usage, cricket craze, food, and many other things. Indian wedding is one such thing about which people love to talk worldwide.
Indian weddings are huge with lots of traditions, people, food, colors and it runs from days to months. ‘Made in Heaven’ is based on Indian weddings and the associated drama around it.
Tara and Karan are Delhi based wedding planners, running their wedding planner agency under the name ‘Made in Heaven’. Wedding is the place where old meets new, tradition meets modern touch creating conflicts between younger and older generations.
I’m glad to see that the creators Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti have come up with such a brilliant show. Made in heaven highlights the real problems with Indian weddings. Dowry, virginity tests, generation conflict, sexual assaults, affairs, homophobia and what not!
To be frank it is one of the finest Indian series. There are only 9 episodes which will make you glued to the TV. The story narration is amazingly brilliant!
The Family Man
The Family Man has Manoj Bhajpayee in the main lead. Along with Manoj, Priyamani, Kannada actress who has worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam & Hindi is in the show as the wife of the family man. She is frustrated for managing things alone, stressed by her husband’s behavior who never spends time with her, handling kids, and fighting herself to not to fall in the trap of an affair. She has given her best as Suchi.
As the show highlights, it is inspired by daily events. They have picked up some of the hot discussions that India is facing currently and knitted them together to make a story out of it.
The story runs around the mission Zulfikar which is planned by a group of terrorists. How they will find the criminals with the help of available clues, hints, and links is the plot of ‘The Family Man’.
Srikant Tiwari is a family man with a wife and two kids working as a special officer in the NIA (National Intelligence Agency). He is always busy chasing criminals, finding out terrorist plan, training junior associates and many other things. His family and friends are fed up of his unavailability during family gatherings yet for Srikant, Nation comes first.
There are 10 episodes, each with almost 50-60 minutes duration.
Watch these Hindi shows on Amazon Prime and let me know your opinion! Happy watching 🙂
