Published

2018 was a great year for web series and other content, and 2019 promises to be even better. So this list is split into two parts — the best from the last year and what we’re waiting for in this year.

BEST WEB SERIES FROM 2018

Sacred Games

You couldn't have missed the incredible cat-and-mouse race between Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui this year, what with all the memes floating around. With other memorable characters like Kuku, Bunty, and Katekar — the show was some of the best TV we'd seen in a while.

Little Things (Season 2)

While the first season of the show was just an introduction to the couple, Dhruv and Kavya, season two opened up the issues in their relationship and also made them find ways to stay together. This season was more adult and delved deeper because of the longer format, and that just made the show a better watch.

Mirzapur

With a stellar cast headed by Pankaj Tripathi, Mirzapur was a gripping, binge-worthy show about a drug cartel in Mirzapur, UP. Warring families staking claim, sex scandals, and young men turning into goons and more. What more do you need?

Yeh Meri Family

If you miss your childhood, this show is what you need to relive it. Harshu has just started his summer vacation and is dying to have a good time, but his mother won't allow it. With the help of his best friend, Shanky, his shenanigans are worth a watch and will melt your heart.

Engineering Girls

When a lot of web series have been about men in engineering, this involves a fresh look at three female friends who are bound together by circumstances, bullies, and exam notes in a (usually) male-dominated space.

Breathe

A man going out of his way to save his son's life and a depressed cop chasing an organ donation scam make for two very interesting characters, and an even better plot in this web series produced by R. Madhavan.

Vella Raja

This series is the story of a lodge and its many occupants who happen to get into trouble for various reasons. Except for one man — Deva. The series then revolves around how he manages to evade the cops and his rivals.

The Test Case

Though the first episode of the show dropped last year, it was only in 2018 that they were able to release the first season of the show. A story of a female army officer and how she battles the sexism around her to triumph above all, this show is not one to miss.

Sex-Rated

The series explores sex and why it's still taboo in Indian society. The host, Rytasha Rathore, makes the subject hilarious yet informative for the viewers.

Sacred Games (Season 2)

So good we got it twice. If the first season is anything to go by, the second season might be even better. Plus, I think we all need to know what happens after the ominous 25-day warning.

Leila

Based on the dystopian novel by Prayaag Akbar, Leila will be directed by Deepa Mehta and others for Netflix, and will star the Huma Qureshi and Siddharth.

Actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora shared official statements on Monday confirming that they have tested positive for COVID-19.

The ‘3 Idiots’ actor took to her Instagram handle and shared a story in which she wrote, “I have tested for positive for COVID. I immediately isolated myself while following all medical protocols. I request anyone who has come in contact with me to please get tested.”
Kareena further continued, “My family and staff are also double vaccinated. They are currently not showing any symptoms. Thankfully, I am feeling ok and hope to be up and about soon.”

Amrita too shared her statement on Insta Stories and wrote, “I have tested positive for COVID. I am following all the medical guidelines and BMC rules.
Anyone who has been in contact with me, please get tested. My family and staff are all fully vaccinated and have all tested negative. Stay safe, stay Responsible.”

Meanwhile, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has revealed that the residence of Kareena has been sealed. They also said that “she has not given proper information yet but our officers are trying to find out that how many people did come in contact with her.”
It was reported earlier today that the duo had been attending several parties recently and hence might be super-spreaders of the deadly virus.
BMC had also instructed the people who came in contact with either Kareena or Amrita, to undergo an RT-PCR test.
Earlier in the day, Kareena’s official spokesperson in a statement had told that both Kareena and Amrita had contracted COVID-19 at an “intimate dinner where a few friends had gathered to catch up.”

Almost a week ago, Kareena and Amrita had attended a fun get-together hosted at the Mumbai residence of Anil Kapoor’s daughter Rhea Kapoor. (ANI)
