Now, let’s check out the most important aspect of this article the Best TV Shows and Movies on Amazon Prime.

1.Dunkirk

If Christopher Nolan is involved with any project then it’s not good, it’s beyond great. Dunkirk was among the most anticipated movie last year and trust me it keeps you at the edge of your seat. The movie did very well at the box office and is already among the classics. The movie is based on World War II where the soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire, and France are surrounded by German Soldiers. The movie is inspired by a true event and is a great example of human struggle. Dunkirk was shot with IMAX Cameras so basically it’s not just a movie, it’s an experience. It is easily on the list of the Best movies on Amazon Prime India.

Starring: Tom Hardy, Fionn Whitehead, Damien Bonnard, James Bloor, Barry Keoghan, Mark Rylance.

Genre: Action/Drama/History/Thriller/War

Director: Christopher Nolan

IMDB Rating: 8.0/10

2.Comicstaan

If you’re aware of the Indian English Comic scene then Comicstaan offers you Kanan Gill, Tanmay Bhat, Biswa Kalyan Rath, Kaneez Surka and many more. Although, this time they are not performing but mentoring and judging some great talented new comic’s. The Series has currently aired four episodes and it is still getting mixed reviews although it is a great insight on the hardships faced by stand-up comedians, Although, for me presence of Biswa and Kanan is enough to watch the ongoing series. Overall, it can turn out to be a great Amazon Prime Series.

Starring: Tanmay Bhat, Kanan Gill, Biswa Kalyan Rath, Kenneth Sebastian, Abish Mathew, Kaneez Surka, Naveen Richard, Sumukhi Suresh, Sapan Verma.

Genre: Comedy

Director: Karan Asnani

IMDB Rating: 6.7/10

3.Raazi

Set in 1971, it is a movie about a Kashmiri girl Sehmat played by Alia Bhat who is asked to marry a high ranking army officer played by Vicky Kaushal. The plot of the movie revolves around the protagonist Sehmat who is asked to spy for information, it was when Indo-Pak relations were seriously tensed. Talking about the performances, it has some of the best performances you might see this year. Also, the inner conflict and the struggle to collect information are the two important aspects that keep you on the edge. It has a great cast with Vicky Kaushal playing a vulnerable husband effectively portraying his character while Jaideep Ahlawat steals the show with his great performance as Sehmat’s trainer.

Now, talking about the lead protagonist played by Alia Bhatt. She’s a star in terms of performance and shines bright. The actress leaves no room of doubt that she is one of the best female actresses in Bollywood, more importantly, she deserves the stature. Alia Bhatt has played the character very effectively, also some of the moments played by her might make you cry. It is a film made with a balanced taste where patriotism is not explicitly shoved down your throat.

After ‘Talvar’, Raazi is the next project by director Meghna Gulzar whose vision truly impressed the audience also, it is a movie you should consider watching, in case you haven’t. Even before it's release on Prime Video it was being considered as the best among the Upcoming Movies on Amazon Prime India.

Starring: Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Rajit Kapoor, Shishir Sharma, Arif Zakaria.

Genre: Action/Crime/Thriller

Director: Meghna Gulzar

IMDB Rating: 7.9/10

4.Chacha Vidhayak Hain Hamare

If the word “Sakht Launda” rings a bell in your head, well, yes I am talking about Zakir Khan. Most of you might know him as a stand-up comedian but here he steals the show by playing a guy from Indore. The series also has been written by Zakir Khan. The series is about a guy named Ronny who has returned to his hometown Indore and is known to be the nephew of an MLA except it’s a lie. Ronny is, in fact, a 25 year old jobless guy who uses the lie to maintain his so called stature of a leader and a guy who solves a problem, as he is the nephew of an MLA.

Zakir Khan has a great fan following and one might expect the series to be a hardcore comedy in spite it is a balance of both comedy as well as emotion. The USP of the show is it's writing. Overall, it is indeed an entertaining series with a lot of life lessons, emotions, and decent performances. Therefore, in case you haven’t subscribed to Prime Video, this could be a fine reason. Also, in India, it is the Best Amazon Prime Series.

Starring: Alka Amin, Pritha Bakshi, Zakir Hussain

Genre: Comedy

Director: Angshuman Ghosh

IMDB Rating: 8.0/10

5.Padmavat

In case you’ve missed the magnum opus by Sanjay Leela Bhansali or you again want to revisit the experience Prime Video is the place to be. Trust me, the movie deserves full HD quality. From background scores to cinematography to the gripping performances, the movie is a complete cinematic experience.

The movie is an inspired tale of the queen Padmavati played by Deepika Padukone who is married to Raja Ratan Singh. Although, the movie shifts from it's romance genre to drama and war when the antagonist Alauddin Khilji played by Ranveer Singh gets to know about the beauty of Queen Padmavati.

The movie has its own perks like the menacing performance of Ranveer Singh, the bold yet intelligent character of Deepika Padukone and the honorful and ethical aspects of Shahid Kapoor. The movie has some great performances by some of the A-listers from Bollywood. Not just the script or the acting, the movie like all Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a visual treat to its core. In case my words made an impression do check it out on Prime Video.

Starring: Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor

Genre: Drama/History/Romance/War

Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali

IMDB Rating: 7.0/10

6. Arjun Reddy

I know it’s a Telugu movie but a good movie is a good movie, no argument on that. It was very random for me to check this flick out. I saw the poster on Prime Video itself and it was being shown on the carousel of the website for a long time, that made me curious. Therefore, like any avid fan of cinema, I watched the trailer and saw the rating on IMDB and hopped on to watch it. I haven’t seen a character like Arjun Reddy in a long time on cinema and the actor has played it so convincingly. The movie is not like any other south-Indian flick rather it takes a more realistic approach.

Arjun Reddy is a short tempered guy, a brilliant surgeon and more importantly a passionate guy in every aspect of his life. The movie takes a turn when his girlfriend is forced to marry another guy. Arjun Reddy goes through a series of struggle from drugs, alcoholism, and lust just to get over his girlfriend. The story is very simple but the climax is a complete heartwarmer. Watch it for the great performances, the chemistry between the two leads, the direction, the screenplay, the movie has put through all of it very well. It’s a great recommendation if you like drama and romance so do check it out on Prime Video.

Starring: Vijay Deverakonda, Shalini Pandey, Amit Sharma

Genre: Action/Drama/Romance

Director: Sandeep Reddy Vanga

IMDB Rating: 8.5/10

7.GangStars

Gangstars is the first Telugu web series by Amazon exclusive. Although, if you’re someone terrified with subtitles than the series is also available in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi on Prime Video. The web series has some of the best actors from Telugu industries assembled to create this binge watch series.

The premise is about a gangster who learns that he’s got cancer and in order to reform his social status attempts at investing in movies. In the attempt, he meets with four other unique characters and that is where the actual drama starts. The series has got mostly positive reviews and it truly captures the essence of Telugu cinema. It has a mixed bag of experience for everyone be it comedy, thrill or hardcore drama. Overall, It is a fast paced series and is a decent recommendation in case you wish to check out how the cinema works in the Telugu industry.

Starring: Abhilash, Aishwarya, Anantha

Genre: Drama

Director: Ajay Bhuyan

IMDB Rating: 7.0/10

8. Mr.Robot

If in case you’re a fan of Mickey Virus then it is not for you, if you think Hollywood has some hardcore hacking movies dump all those names into the closest dustbin near you. I am an IT engineer who writes an article for a living because I love it and this is by far the most authentic series I’ve seen.

Mr.Robot is a story about a young brilliant guy named Elliot played by Rami Malek. Elliot is a Cyber Security Engineer and exceptionally good in what he does although here’s a twist he’s highly unstable. The series starts with Elliot taking down a guy who is responsible for child pornography on Dark Web[It’s a real thing].

He has a sense of righteousness and is adamant on liberating the world from this corrupt society. The premise takes a pace where he becomes a vigilante with other group of hackers and decides to take down the corrupt organization that he works for. Overall, the series is a binge watch if you’re fascinated by anything related to computers. The series has some exceptional performances by the ensemble cast. Although, the USP of the show is the hacking technique used to carry out the task, they are real and authentic.

If you haven’t checked it out, do give it a chance although, let it sink first in your head if you’re a complete layman in the field. The show has already aired three seasons and the season 4 is about to release. If you don’t have a Prime subscription then I can not give you a better reason to have yourself subscribed. This is among the best Amazon Prime TV Shows.

Starring: Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday

Genre: Crime/Drama/Thriller

Director: Sam Esmail

IMDB Rating: 8.6/10

9. Zakir Khan: Haq Se Single

Zakir Khan is the only Hindi comic that stands tall in front of the English comic scene. The Amazon special has been there for a long while now and if you haven’t watched it and you are a single guy, I bet you’d love it. We all know that stand-up comedy is not all about telling jokes of Santa Banta or any joke for instance. Haq Se Single is an exemplary example of that.

I was a fan of English scene and then I saw him, the guy literally gave me goosebumps. It is a comedy special but trust me, he pours his heart out and tells about his journey in a fashion that you both relate and laugh your heart out but mostly if you’re a guy. Do give it a thought because it surely is a masterpiece in every sense with keen observation and a sense of storyline to the whole content so that the audience truly understands. If you’re a guy then this is for you, if you’re a girl looking for a decent laugh then also this for you but if you’re a single guy then it was made for you.

Starring: Zakir Khan

Genre: Comedy

Director: Angshuman Ghosh

IMDB Rating: 8.5/10

10. Young Sheldon

If I ask a crowd of 1000 people who have watched the famous sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” that whether they like “The Big Bang Theory” or not, I might see a huge number of raised hands. Although, If I ask whether they like Sheldon Cooper or not, I can bet the number of hands would be more.

In the beginning, Sheldon is shown a side character but by the end, this Jim Parson character gathered enough fame that he became the lead. Therefore, the creators thought of creating the younger version of the character and we have Young Sheldon. Sheldon Cooper is a super genius, he was in college when he was 11 and at 14 he graduated. Also, Sheldon got his first Ph.d. at the age of 16. According to him his Prefrontal Cortex(It’s a part of your brain) is big, therefore, he is smarter from everyone around him.

Young Sheldon is the journey of the younger version and how he became what he was in the series “ The Big Bang Theory”. It is a prequel dedicated to a particular character and is thoroughly entertaining even if you’re not such a big fan of science. Iain Armitage eventually becomes very convincing as the character. The supporting cast is also very impressive and does there job well. Overall, it is a great show for watching even if you haven’t seen The Big Bang Theory. One can say that it is among the best TV shows on Amazon Prime.

Starring: Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber

Genre: Comedy

Director: Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro

IMDB Rating: 7.1/10
