new shows

Lounging at home during monsoons hits different. It’s beautiful to sit by the window and watch the rain with a hot cuppa or simply snuggle in bed with a book in your hand. But I’m not going to lie, the dull and gloomy weather does make one feel sad and lonely. And if that’s your mood right now, let’s switch that up, shall we? Why not entertain yourself with some exciting new shows or movies to get rid of the monsoon blues? If you’re on the hunt for recommendations, you’ve come to the right place. Ahead we list the new releases on our roster in the second half of the month. 

1. Kohrra

Set against the backdrop of Punjab, Kohrra is an investigative crime drama that takes you on a captivating journey through the diverse and unseen side of the state. When a lifeless body of an NRI bridegroom is discovered, it sets a murder investigation in motion led by two cops (played by Barun Sobti and Suvinder Vicky) that unravels the complexities of the countryside. Gripping, nail-biting and a story that will keep you at the edge of your seat, Kohrra deserves a spot on your watchlist this month.

2. The Witcher Season 3 Volume 2

In volume 1, the show’s real villain Vilgefortz reveals himself as he stages a coup ahead of the Conclave of Mages on Thanedd Island. He’s been responsible for chaos among the Continent’s most powerful, so brace yourself to watch a battle play out in the last three episodes of the season. But one thing is there for sure–the found family Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) and Ciri (Freya Allan), plus their companion Jaskier (Joey Batey), will stick together throughout. Just like Geralt says in the trailer, “We didn’t come this far just to abandon each other.”

P.S.: Knowing that this will be the last season he appears in, we’re not ready to say goodbye to Henry Cavill’s Geralt and if you feel the same, keep that tissue paper box ready with you.

3. Bawaal

The story revolves around a history teacher (Varun Dhawan) who marries a woman (Janhvi Kapoor) because of her beauty so that he can boast about it among his peers. The newlywed small-town couple puts all their efforts into planning a honeymoon trip to Europe. But once they reach there, the couple faces trouble in their relationship as they learn about World War II and draw references from it.

4. Sweet Magnolias Season 3

Childhood BFFs Maddie, Helen Decatur and Dana Sue Sullivan are back to face new challenges as the trio navigate romantic relationships, family and careers in the cosy town of Serenity, South Carolina. The official synopsis reads, “Following the brawl at Sullivan’s, Maddie wrestles with the best way to help Cal and works to clear her emotional path. Helen faces difficult decisions about the men in her life. And Dana Sue searches for a way to use Miss Frances’ check to help the community, without upending her family. The identity of the tire slasher sends shockwaves through Serenity, the recall causes unexpected consequences, and there are romantic surprises in every generation. Throughout the season, the ladies tackle these problems – and all the complications they cause – with their trademark warmth, humour, and devotion to each other and those they love. And margaritas.”
