How many times did you get excited for a binge-watch session alone or with buddies only to realise that there are millions of options to choose from but nothing you'd like right now.

A mini-series starring Sumeet Vyas is a mystery thriller with two seasons airing successfully on Zee5. The story revolves around a group of students of an elite school and their millennial issues like gender fluidity, body shaming, porn addiction, personality disorder & not to forget their rap band; RejctX. It's a deranged yet alarming take on some ignored problems of our generation that kicks-off with a daunting twist in the first episode itself. And I apologise but I don't wish to give it away.

"Every day is madness in a Mother's life." I profoundly agree as I've seen my own mother go through it for as long as I can remember. And it's a thoughtful gesture on the creator's part to depict such problems in the form of a Hindi drama series that is funny, new and well-written. Although to give you a clear idea; Mentalhood is a story of a group of moms and dads trying to figure out the new rules of parenting. During the series, you'll come across strategies each parent abides by. To understand which one works the best can be another reason to watch this.
4. Abhay (Season 1 & 2)
Kunal Khemu, Ratnesh Mani, Sandeepa Dhar

A crime thriller inspired by true events is a drama series that launched in 2019 and made everybody fall in love with Kunal Khemu all over again. His portrayal as a sharp-minded, fearless investigator who'd do anything to reach to the bottom of the filthy pit brimming with crimes is applaudable, so as the performance of every character in this series. Both the season deals with their specific masterminds giving the audience a clear depiction of the grim, dark world of the criminality and more.
5. Chintu Ka Birthday
Satyanshu Singh, Devanshu Kumar
Vinay Pathak, Tillotama Shome, Seema Bhargava, Vedant Chibber

Vinay Pathak is one of the most underrated actors who understands the art more than many in this industry. One of his masterpieces, Chintu Ka Birthday is streaming on Zee5 since 2018 and I think it's time we give him a little credit and finally watch it. The movie is set in the US invading Iraq and illegal immigrants trying to flee the country to reach India. However, amongst the chaos, a father played by Vinay Pathak is determined to celebrate his son's 6th birthday. It's heart-warming, a wee-bit violent, emotional and a funny.
6. Zero Kms (Season 1)

A 2018 action series is based on a true story which revolves around a character named Arjun who after serving 10 years in prison for a crime he did not commit is caught between a flesh-trafficking racket. It's a hard-hitting, entertaining and a disturbing tale beautifully portrayed by Naseeruddin Shah and Tanmay Dhanania and a must-watch on Zee5.
7. Sone Bhi Do Yaaron
Naveen Kasturia, Bharat Thakkar

If you admired Naveen in TVF's Pitchers, this short film will surely take you on a comical ride worth spending time on. It's a funny story about a severely sleep-deprived man trying to catch a few moments of shut-eye before his interview in the morning. But he is interrupted by his friend's uncle who is sleeping right next to him and snoring loudly. As the man flicks between dream and reality, so will you heart.
All these awesome movies and tv-series are just a click away. Start your binge-watching Zee5 and you won't regret it.
