My personal favourite- Farzi is spectacular. With Shahid Kapoor’s hot looks as an artist turned counterfeiting genius and Rashi Khanna and Vijay Setupathi’s smart and witty moves as intelligence officers, Farzi makes for the perfect crime drama. It keeps you on the edge of your seat till the very end. It is a highly recommended show which is available to watch on Amazon Prime.

The performances by the entire cast which also involved Shriya Pilgaonkar, Deven Bhojani and Shilpa Shukla which brought the fantasy-comedy storyline to life were highly appreciated. You can watch Taaza Khabar on Hotstar.
4. Rana Naidu
A Netflix release, Rana Naidu was in the headlines for its coarse language. It is a remake of the Tv series Ray Donovan and stars the uncle-nephew duo of Rana Daggubatti and Venkatesh Daggubatti in the lead roles.
