From Netflix India’s Sacred Games to Amazon Prime Video’s Mirzapur, the 21-day lockdown has forced us to revisit many of our favourite shows. The shows that created an unparalleled buzz back then inviting a monumental amount of memes.
In this special listicle, let’s put a few of your favourite Indian shows from Netflix India and Amazon Prime Video head to head. Some of them aren’t similar in genres but they appealed to a similar set of audience.
Sacred Games VS Mirzapur
Of course, the most legendary of all the comparisons will be this one. Sacred Games led by Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui proved to be an entry gate for other shows. While Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Pankaj Tripathi and Divyendu Sharma’s Mirzapur created a whole new level of rage which still is getting stronger by the day.
SHE VS Afsos
It was out of the blue when Imtiaz Ali decided to pen a thriller loaded by lust. Though it came with its flaws but was applauded for Vijay Varma and Aaditi Pohankar’s stupendous performances. On the other hand, Gulshan Devaiah’s Afsos isn’t a regular dark comedy thriller. It also gives us important insights into how some people are greedy for immortality, how some people want to die because they can’t do life anymore!
Delhi Crime VS Inside Edge
Delhi Crime retells the horrific story of Delhi’s Nirbhaya Gang-Rape Case. With a touch of reality and memorable performances by Shefali Shah, Rasika Duggal and Adil Hussain, Delhi Crimes makes for an uncomfortable yet intriguing watch. Talking about reality, Inside Edge showcased the various facets of greed, ambition, corruption and of course cricket of the Powerplay League. Led by Vivek Oberoi and Richa Chadha, it was directed by Karan Anshuman.
Little Things VS Four More Shots Please
What started on a YouTube channel 4 years ago landed itself on Netflix and since things, Little Things haven’t been little. Tackling what’s considered to be a jinx, last season revolved around the concept of Long Distance Relationship (LDR for millennials). While Amazon Prime India’s Four More Shots please is a bold story about 4 bold women trying to escape from their routine life.
Jamtara VS Made In Heaven
Watch Jamtara educate yourself of a scam that was held and is still being conducted in your times, just a few hours away from you. This lecture is entertaining, moving, also has some flaws but is important. While Made In Heaven was a story revolving around a wedding planner whose own marriage is going through a tough phase. It tackles so many complex issues with such ease, leaving you no choice but understand and think over of where did it all go wrong.
Yeh Meri Family VS The Family Man
Yeh Meri Family opens up that box of nostalgia which you were trying to hide it in your wardrobe. A treat for 90s kids, this one is a brainchild of the creative minds at The Viral Fever. While, Manoj Bajpayee’s The Family Man is a story of a ‘family man’ who is a secret agent of the National Investigation Agency, TASC and also a middle-class man who has to fulfil his usual responsibilities.
