Money Heist, Season 5, Netflix, English

Money Heist Season 5 is here, and the much-loved robbers are back with a more heart-pumping game plan, and this time, the women are calling the shots. This season also traces some of the backstories of some of the central characters, however, there is going to be a loss of perhaps one of the much-loved characters. But as the Professor says, whatever happens, you’re sure to be glued to this show.

Cinderella, Amazon Prime, English

There have been many versions of Cinderella. However, Kay Cannon’s Cinderella definitely stands out because of its progressive message and Pierce Brosnan’s amazing performance. The tale is the same – the prince and Cinderella and of course, the glass slippers. But the treatment to this oft-told story is amazingly new and well-thought-out.

Dive Club, Netflix, English

Dive Club set in Australia revolves around a group of teen divers who investigate a series of secrets. Things go awry when one of them goes missing. A ravaging storm makes things worse and then when a released convict comes to town, skeletons from this place of secrets keep popping out. Watch it, it’s interesting!

Black Widow, Disney Plus Hotstar, English
