With streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, Voot competing for our attention, it can be quite overwhelming to browse all of them to pick the perfect show for your weekend bingeing.
So we caught up with Kiran Rao, who is currently in the midst of putting together the Mumbai Film Festival (she's the chairperson), to list down the shows she's watching on Netflix, Hotstar and other platforms.
The Silence Before Bark (Mubi.com)
It's a Spanish film by the director Pere Portabella. It's quite experimental. I recently caught it and was bowled away by its intensity. I'd recommend this.
I am a major fan of vintage shows and Frasier is one of my all-time favourite sitcoms. Actually, I spend a lot of time watching old English sitcoms, especially from the 90s.
Hannah Gadsby's comedy special has pretty much changed the paradigm of stand-up comedy. I usually catch up a lot of stand-up comedy as well as news programmes by comedians. Stephen Colbert's show is another of my favourites.
Breaking Bad (Netflix)
I am so addicted to this Bryan Cranston show, I think it's a stroke of genius.
The Handmaid's Tale (Hotstar)
Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel is shockingly relevant.
