We at HKYantoYan understand it gets hard to keep up with so many options out there on various platforms. Therefore, we have come up with this list of ‘Must Watch Indian Web Series of 2019’.

Made In Heaven

Created by Zoya Akhtar & Reema Kagti, Made in Heaven stars Arjun Mathur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Kalki Koechlin and Jim Sarbh as the principal cast. In this web series, the limelight is put on all the underlying issues concerning the rich Indian wedlock world. Some of them being – the fear a different sexually oriented kid’s mother lives with, an IIT graduate groom accepting dowry, lower-middle-class struggles for money & class, etcetera. This behind the scene storyline of two elite Delhi based wedding planners, entering the lives of various brides and grooms, force the audience to accept the otherwise denied ongoing shortcomings.

Laakhon Mein Ek (Season 2)

Everyone resonates the title “Laakhon Mein Ek” to the story of a hero, who against all odds, wins! But, not in this case. Here we witness the story of Dr Shreya Pathare who is sent to Sithlapur, a rural village in Maharashtra, by her government training hospital to organise a cataract camp. On this journey, the aspiring truthful doctor finds herself engulfed between devious suppliers and corrupt politicians. No doubt she gives her best fight yet, there is no sugar-coating given to the reality of society by the creator of the series – Biswa Kalyan Rath. Yes, it’s gloomy, however, a recommended watch as it brings you to face the ‘real side’.

P.S. You should clear your schedule to watch Laakhon Mein Ek season 1 as well.

Delhi Crime

Based on the gruesome Nirbhaya gang-rape case that took place in 2012 in Delhi, Delhi Crime depicts in utter complexity the police procedural that followed after. The happenings have been shown thrice throughout the seven episodes in P.O.Vs of the ruthless criminal, doctor and the hapless victim herself. Richie Mehta’s web series, leaving no question unturned, is well executed and directed keeping your attention clasped till the very end of the web series. Watch it.

Criminal Justice

Set in Mumbai, Criminal Justice is a story about an MBA student, Aditya Sharma, getting caught up in a murder case he remembers nothing about! Well, the plot starts with him driving his family owned cab one night. That’s when he takes in this passenger and, as the course of events takes place, he wakes up to her stabbed dead body. Then on the story is clearly split into two clear halves – one focused on the lawyers, Pankaj Tripathi & Mita Vashisht, who are working on proving Aditya innocent. And the second focuses on the student’s transformation journey in jail. This adaptation of the officially produced BBC-produced Criminal Justice can get a little elongated but, the brilliantly central characters and storyline make it a good watch.

In the previous season, you will witness a perennially irritated father who has cricket trained his two sons and now takes them to Mumbai to join a cricket club.
