The weekend is here and it’s time to get your entertainment on!
While the cinemas are open, good films are also being streamed on OTT platforms. Here’s what you can binge-watch on Netflix, Hotstar & Amazon Prime, SonyLIV & Zee5:
#HOME is a heartwarming tale of an old gentle Oliver Twist who desperately wants to connect to his sons who, like every other kid, spend an awful lot of time on their phones. He then upgrades to a smartphone to keep the connection alive, but still somehow misses what he longed for. #HOME is a wonderful story about a technology-challenged father trying hard to connect with his sons in the digital age. It’s a beautiful relationship drama in that sense.
Released on August 19th, watch #HOME at Amazon Prime Video.
The comedy-drama marks the debut of comedian Satya as a hero. The trailer has got a good reception, where the story is knitted around lockdown. What follows after the sudden lockdown announcement turns into a laugh riot. The film streamed on August 27.
