A family drama with lots of drama, love, and forgiveness. Isn’t forgiveness the root of the family?

3. Panchayat – Amazon Prime Video
Panchayat is a light-hearted comic drama that hits right in your heart. Where Jitender wins the heart of the audience again with his gripping performance but the story was no less short. The show was not only funny but also relatable. The messages conveyed are not only progressive but also practical. It creates a world that blurs the line of rural and urban altogether.
4. Pataal Lok – Amazon Prime Video
Delhi gives art a platform that doesn’t seem questionable. As a backdrop, Delhi seems to always do justice to the vilest acts of humankind. Thus, Pataal’s look did the same. It took us into the heart of our life and make us question things that seemed normal to us. It brings civilization and cinema together and molds into a universe that we are actually living in today. Shocking? But it’s the reality we have turned our back too.
5.SCAM 1992 – Sony Liv
Scam 1992 is basically one of the top web series of 2020 that skyrocketed the efforts of the making of Indian web series. Despite the story being nothing new to know but it still manages to leave the audience in love with every cast of the show. It gives the spotlight to new deserving actors but also a glimpse of what a great ensemble of the cast can do to a story. The story gave you the taste of everything, where you start rooting for Harshad Mehta in the beginning and by the end of it you don’t know what to feel. And when the last episode’s credits roll you find yourself humming its title track.
