Sacred Games – Netflix makes a grand entry in the Indian Scene

We were all excited when Netflix announced Sacred Games as their first Indian original show. It is based on Vikram Chandra’s critically acclaimed novel of the same name, and when we came to know about the casting and directors it made us even more excited.

Freaks and Geeks : A One of a Kind One Season Wonder

Growing up, we have all watched different sitcoms or serials which we loved more because of how relatable it was to us or how we wanted our lives to exist in the serial’s world, rather than the content.

Counterpart S01E02 “Birds Of A Feather” Review — Uncovering Secrets

Counterpart returns after a very interesting pilot to further the events that unfolded the previous week, after our introduction to this bizarre world and its many possibilities. Still going the slow-burn route, the narrative develops significantly ― exploring the central conflict in greater detail and establishing existing character roles firmly while also paving the way…

Counterpart S01E01 “The Crossing” Review — An Intriguing Start

Parallel universes. Multiple identities. Bizarre paradoxes that might result from a person meeting his ‘twin’ from a parallel world. These are concepts and theories from the realms of science and science-fiction, almost as old as the genre itself, all explored and recycled and nearly done to death by the film and television industry. Yet somehow,…
