November has been an action-packed month filled with exciting shows and the latest web series, pretty much on every platform that exists for streaming. It’s been barely 10 days into the month, and there are still many web series coming out during the rest of November.
Like these ones:
Aashram Chapter 2, MXPlayer
Aashram is a 2020 Indian Hindi-language crime drama web series based on Gurmeet Ram Rahim, directed by Prakash Jha for MX Player original. It is produced by Prakash Jha under Prakash Jha Productions. Chapter 2, the second series, is out today, 11 November. What are you waiting for? Start watching it on MXPlayer!
Mum Bhai, Zee5
Mum Bhai on Zee5 releases tomorrow, 12 November. Set in the late 90s, it’s the story of Bhaskar Shetty, who emerged as a top encounter specialist with a record of 83 encounters. His passion to rule the city saw no limits, and in this journey, he ended up becoming someone he never wished to become. It stars Angad Bedi and Sandeepa Dar and you can watch it now on Zee5.
Becoming You, Apple TV
In the first web series of its kind, Becoming You is an examination of how the first 2,000 days on earth shape the rest of people’s lives, as seen through the eyes of more than 100 children across the world; a look at how children learn to think, speak and move from birth to five-years-old. Apple TV is really going out with experimental dramas, and this looks interesting, to say the least.
The Crown, Netflix
All you fans of The Crown rejoice, because the fourth season will be out on 15 November! This drama follows political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Its excellent cast makes the show the amazing one it is, with Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter, Tobias Menzies.
His Dark Materials, Disney+ Hotstar
If you grew up reading Philip Pullman, you’ll be glad to know that the day is finally here when TV people have ruined our favourite fantasy series. Or maybe they didn’t do a bad job. Lyra, a young orphan from an alternate world, stays with the scholars in a college in Oxford. During a quest to find her missing friend, she discovers a secret that involves several kidnappings.
The only way to find out if the series has done the books justice is to, well, watch it on 17 November.
Bichoo Ka Khel, Alt Balaji
Releasing on 18 November, Bichoo Ka Khel shows us that AltBalaji can go dark, too. Ethical, gritty questions frame the series: What happens when a young student loses his father to a cover-up? Can he find it in himself to forget the past and move on, or is revenge the only thing that can give him some peace of mind?
Mismatched will be out on Netflix on 20 November, and I’m quite pumped for it. Rohit Saraf and Prajakta Koli star in this original series about a tech wizard and a school classmate who become close at their summer program. Plot twist is that their families organised a set-up for them that was nothing short of a disaster. This series looks like it’s well-scripted, acted, authentic and fun.
A Simple Murder, Sony LIV
If you’re interested in watching yet another gritty crime drama about murder, cops, money and whatnot, A Simple Murder is the show for you. Except that it’s also a comedy. Featuring Priya Anand, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Sushant Singh, Amit Sial, Yashpal Sharma, Gopal Datt, Ayaz Khan, the series is a dark comedy in which greed becomes the factor that entangles the characters in an uncontrollable chain of events.
Out on 20 November, it will be streaming on Sony LIV.
Dark 7 White, Zee5
Dark 7 White is a ZEE5 Original thriller series starring Sumeet Vyas, Nidhi Singh, Jatin Sarna, and Monica Chaudhary. When Yudi, the new Chief Minister gets killed in an accident, the investigation leads to his college friends and the dark secret they have been hiding.
