Netflix has been the saviour of most during the trying times of Coronavirus pandemic lockdowns. It is still not safe to go out and spend a regular weekend like one use to about 10 months back. The constant threat of getting infected doesn’t usually let one enjoy to the fullest.

So, why not spend the weekend in the safety of the house, call your close bubble buddies and binge watch some new Netflix shows and Chill. Of course, Get some Pizza and Drinks!

We have prepared a list of shows that can all be completed in a day if you are a dedicated binge(r) like some of us!

1.       The Queen’s Gambit

If there is one show that does full justice to its IMDb rating, it has to be The Queen’s Gambit. The Netflix series is based on the 1983 novel by the same name, which was written by Walter Tevis.

A story about a prodigy chess player, who learns to play chess and deal with the curve balls that life throws at her simultaneously. The show is not just about chess, it`s about being a woman in man’s world, a woman whose life is as messy as a life of any modern woman that chooses to do something different than what world expects of her.
 

2.       Tiny Pretty Things

This Netflix series is way underrated for the excellence in which it was directed. It breaks the core idea of Ballet! It`s not just about Tulles and Sparkles, it is a cut-throat bone-breaking art form. The show questions if ballet is ready to break out from its 200 old traditions to a new world of competition with a crime mystery that is going on in the background. In case you have binged the more popular shows on the list, this is a great pick for the week!

3.       Bridgeton

A light breezy watch, in case you don’t want to put your brain into the storming mode. Many have described Brighton as a crossover of Downtown Abbey and Gossip Girl with Pride and Prejudice wonderfully over it. Don’t go looking for sense and meaning in the show but when seen at a deeper level. The way relationship unfolds today is still relevant to what the show set in the 19th Century portrays.

4.       A suitable Boy

Based on Vikram Seth’s novel of the same name, this show is a delight. The portrayal of post-independent India, where one cannot decide if they are supposed to leave the legacy of western influence behind and enter into a new India. The story beautifully fabricates the very root of how India became a country of Hindu and Muslim, not the Country of Indians. It shows two sides of the world, the beautiful serene one where Lata’s biggest problem is to find a suitor and life of Maan, who faces difficulty dealing with his privileges and responsibility.

5.       Mismatched

Mismatched is a rom-com based on Sandhya Menon’s best selling book ‘When Dimple Met Rishi’. Dimple Ahuja (played by Prajakta Koli) wants to be a tech wizard and Rishi Singh Shekhawat (played by Rohit Saraf) is a young guy who believes in ‘60’s wala romance’ and has come to Aravalli Institute to find his ‘Future Wife’. Now, will they succeed in landing in their dream project while dealing with friends, bullies and even each other? You wouldn’t stop obsessing over Rohit Saraf later!

6.       The Spy

The Spy is a six-part, roughly six-hour series based on the work of real-life Mossad agent Eli Cohen, who went undercover in Syria in the early 1960s. At a crucial time, Cohen got in deeper and was more successful than anyone ever expected, ultimately becoming Israel`s most famous spy. A masterpiece that takes you onto a journey of twists and turns and will make you question, Why did I not become a Spy?
