The lure of streaming platforms continues unabated. Major stars who have ruled the 70mm for years today are not averse to taking up projects meant for OTTs. Accordingly, we will have at least two shows featuring legendary actors lined up for this week.
Fasten your seatbelts as the third season of the space series ‘The Mandalorian’ will be released on March 1.
‘Gulmohar’ streaming on Disney+Hotstar seems like an out-and-out family drama high on emotions. It boasts a strong cast which includes Sharmila Tagore, Manoj Bajpayee, Amol Palekar among others. It will stream from March 3. On the same day, a recently released Mohanlal thriller, ‘Alone’ too will be dropped.
Period dramas are always a treat to watch. So we have another take on the eternal Salim-Anarkali love story. ‘Taj: Divided by Blood’ releasing on Zee 5 on March 3 stars Dharmendra, Naseeruddin Shah, Zarina Wahab among others.
Most of the releases on Netflix will be spread over three days starting March 1. ‘Tonight you are sleeping with me’ is a story of a journalist caught in a passionless marriage. Releasing on March 1, it has been directed by Robert Wichrowski. Another movie releasing on the same day also deals with marital discord. It is called ‘Heatwave’. The last release on the same day is a Spanish drama ‘Wrong Side of the Track’, which according to the platform is gritty, witty, and suspenseful. Releasing on March 2, ‘Monique Olivier: Accessory to Evil’ profiles the role of the wife of France’s most notorious murderer. Season 2 of ‘Sex/Life’, a romantic TV drama will be released on Thursday.
The week concludes with the release of a Spanish movie ‘Love at First Kiss’. Turkish mysterious movie ’10 Days of a Good Man’ will be released on Friday. It is the story of a lawyer turned private investigator.
A new series, ‘The Consultant’ has recently dropped on Prime Video. Though described as a comedy and suspenseful, it does have a shocking opening scene wherein we see a kid killing a video game creator.
