The Suicide Squad (2021).

Just watched another great edition to DCEU. Far better from the original this dark-comedy is a true emotional rollercoaster. Amazing performance by Margot Robbie, Idris Alba, John Cena etc. As expected another brilliant film by James Gunn. However the story telling was rather insignificant and morose. Still entertaining and engaging from top to bottom.

Downton Abbey (2010-15).

Just watched one of the sweetest show I’ve ever seen. An amazing story about the chronicles of the lives of British aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in Downton Abbey of Grantham, Yorkshire, England, UK, in 1920s. A beautiful show with many tragadies and a sweet and wholesome ending.

The Good Doctor [Season1-4] (2017-21)

Just watched one of the best medical drama in recent time. A story about a young surgeon with ASD and Savant Syndrome and his life while studying in St Bonaventure hospital where he faces many problems for his lack of communication skills but he counters them with his genius level intellect z knowledge and pure innocence. Outstanding performance by Freddy Highmore in the role of Dr Shaun Murphy. Also great performance by other actors. A truly engaging and educational realistic medical drama.

Dexter (2006-2013).

Just watched one of the best psychological thriller shows of all time. A story about a blood spatter analyst in Miami Metro Police Department who also kills criminals and murderers at night. Outstanding performance by Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, John Lithgo, Julie Benz, David Zayas, etc. A n amazing show with a terrible ending. Hopefully the upcoming spinoff will fix the ending to a point.

Gotham (2014-19).

Just watched one of the most entertaining tv-series I’ve seen in a long time. A different, non-canon, but amazing adaption of comic world of Gotham before Batman ever came. A even darker, gore, psychological approach in the dark worlds of Gotham. Many character arks even after being far different from their comic origins felt surreal, and maybe even more interesting, some got changed a bit too much. Story of most of the pre- Batman supervillains and the saviors of Gotham James Gordon and his partner Harvey Bullock was breathtaking. One of the better series I’ve seen in recent time.

Parks and Recreation (2009-2015).

Just watched one of the best mockumentaries out there about life of government workers. One of the most realistic shows out there after The Office. Outstanding performance by every single person of the cast, especially Amy Poehler. An amazing show with one of the most beautiful and heart-touching endings. It has now become one of the my all-time favorite shows.

The Originals (2013-18). Just watched one of the if not the best supernatural-fantasy web series ever. An outstanding story about the family of the Original Vampires and their love and dedication for their family. A story about sibling’s love for each other and a hunger of power that stands in between. A pact of being together Always and Forever and problems it faces. A true family drama with many outstanding supernatural twists. It’s been a glorious ride to see one of the most amazing shows.The Originals (2013-18).

A beautiful story full of love hatred, supernaturals, myth, blood, pain, sacrifice and above all heart touching friendship. Outstanding performance by the actors and amazing screenplay. It’s been a hell of 12 days and one of the best things I’ve watched in a long time.

Ray (2021)

Four completely different but amazing short stories of Satyajit Ray adapted in a modern and different manner. Some of them were extremely good some didn’t complete with the expectations. For me 2nd part starting Kay Kay Menon and 3rd part starting Manoj Bajpayee were the best though though the 1st part starring Ali Fazal was also really good, the 4th part starring Harshvardhan Kapoor didn’t live up to my expectations. Overall really great but different and controversial adaptations of Ray’s works but enjoyable.

Just rewatched one of my favorite films of recent time and one of the best performance by Rajkumar Rao. A thrilling story about a vote presiding officer doing his best to conduct a proper and fair vote in booth in Dandakaranya jungle which is infested with maoists and facing countless problems.

A true metaphorical classic.
