Binge Guide: What to watch on OTT platforms this weekend
Our pick of the best OTT content for the weekend
It's time for Tom Holland to show us his non-spiderman side with Uncharted. Based on Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, this film follows treasure hunter Victor "Sully" Sullivan as he recruits street-smart Nathan Drake to help him recover a 500-year-old lost fortune. What starts out as a relatively peaceful heist will quickly become an action-packed globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize. Success in deciphering the clues and solving the mystery will lead them to a meagre $5 billion treasure, provided they can learn to work together!
Indian Predator: The Butcher of Delhi
Prepare yourself for this intense, blood-curdling documentary directed by Ayesha Sood. You are going to need a strong mind and even stronger stomach to follow the true story of this serial killer in the nation's capital. You will be given a taste of his flavours of homicide that include but are not limited to, decapitation and dismemberment and a few other gory surprises.
The Gray Man
Netflix’s most recent project, with a reported budget of just $200 million, is set to make this book adaptation the most expensive original film ever produced by the platform. This is the life story of the ‘Gray Man’ (Ryan Gosling), former CIA operative Court Gentry. Gentry sets off on a mission across Europe to find and rescue his handler Donald Fitzroy and his family who are being held captive by the big baddies who want Gentry dead. This action-packed thriller will likely be the first of many to come in the series, so better get caught up before its too late.
F9: The Fast Saga
Alas, another one. If you are looking for some good high-octane ‘family’ time, get caught up with the latest instalment of this action-staple to the industry. You can expect those God-like statements from Dom Toretto(Vin Diesel) who is yanked out of his off-the-grid dad life, to face another form of definite danger. He will be forced to confront his past to save those he loves most (It’s always Family of course). His crew will assemble to face the greatest driving threat yet – Dom's forsaken brother!
After a very dramatic end to season two, this season of the wholesome family drama will bring eight episodes. Picking up with Nikki (Esther Smith) and Jason (Rafe Spall) waking up as new parents to two children they barely know yet. All they have to do is keep hold of them, which may prove to be trickier than they initially thought. Watch as the couple is thrown straight into the parental deep end, testing their relationships with each other and the ones they love as they desperately try to navigate the ups and downs of parenting.
This series follows the story of an underdog who sets out to fight his powerful and ruthless uncle for the honour of his wronged father. Revolving around the patriarch Naidu, who shares an unbreakable bond with his brother Mohanrao, as far as the world is concerned. The success of the first season has led to a more intense season 2 which is likely to strike a chord with viewers, as the family drama continues.
This eight-episode series directed by Imtiaz Ali is the story of Dr Arora (Kumud Mishra), a sex doctor who helps his patients overcome a string of bedroom problems. Arora's unflinching empathy while listening to his patients open up about their most personal and private problems, wins them over. The show sees events unfold in small towns in 1999, where the concept of a gynaecologist is absolutely alien leading to Dr Arora becoming the most sought-after doctor. This social satire is a definite eye-opener.
