With a bouquet of web-series available on various platforms, here is a list of some critically acclaimed web-shows handpicked for you, which can be watched with your family to stir up the patriot in you.

Based on true events, the series is a tribute to Netaji’s The Indian National Army and the incredible soldiers, men and women, who came forward to fight for the country’s independence. The series features Sunny Kaushal, M.K.Raina, and Sharvari Wagh, amongst others. The series has been sprinkled with enough nationalism to make every heart brim with pride, and it truly deserves to be on your watch list this Independence day.

Labelled as The Test Case, Captain Shikha Sharma overcomes all the hurdles to emerge victorious while seizing her place in the army. Apart from Nimrat, the show starred the formidable cast of Juhi Chawla, Akshay Oberoi, Manit Joura, Atul Kulkarni, Rahul Dev, Anup Soni among others. Binge-watch, The Test case as it tells you in the most effective manner possible, that battles are to be fought together by both sexes, not between the two.

The Final Call


Based on the Priya Kumar’s 2015 novel ‘I Will Go with You: The Flight of a Lifetime’, the suspense-packed ZEE5 show centers around the passengers of a flight from Mumbai to Sydney whose lives are put in danger after their captain decides to kill himself on board. This is also Arjun Rampal’s first web series, and also stars Javed Jaffrey, Sakshi Tanwar, and Neeraj Kabi. A show with an unusual story-line that raises questions about conscience, destiny, spirituality, depression, and death definitely makes it binge-worthy.

The series is a historic period drama by ALTBalaji, which depicts the story of the biggest cover-up of the death of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. The series explores the speculation about Bose’s death and revolves around characters and situations that hint at his possible return. With his looks and perfect acting skills, Rajkummar Rao has lived up every moment in the series, infusing life in the character and justifying Netaji’s role which makes this show truly binge-worthy.

The series stars Mohit Raina as Havildar Ishar Singh along with Mukul Dev as Gul Badshah and Alexx O’Nell as Winston Churchill.

Courtesy, Manoj Bajpayee, and a quirky fun-filled storyline. Raj & DK (Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK) is the director-producer-writer duo, known for their work in Bollywood mega-hits like ‘Shor in the City’ and ‘Go Goa Gone’.

We would love to see him make more impelling web series in future.
