Oh, how I loved watching dystopian films with a virus on the loose, infecting thousands of citizens and one guy who can save them all. Well, our real lives have become somewhat similar except there's no hero coming to save us. In fact, we are the protagonist of our own movie and the only weapons we have at our disposal are awareness and knowledge.
Now, let me tell you what we can do with it.
Let's spend some time with our families binge-watching some amazing films, new, old and classic right at home. To help you with this, here are 10 mind-blowing watches on TataSky you can rent for Rs 100!
1. Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder woman is back and this time she's bringing more action, better chaos and an even stronger villain. It's time to welcome Maxwell Lord and Cheetah, two antagonists with superhuman strength and agility into DC-verse, and enjoy the duel. But don't worry, wonder woman is in full possession of her powers, has the love of her life by her side (If you've watched the last movie, you'll know wh this is important) and ready to lasso (of truth) her way to an epic ending.

In a realistic, highly probable future a regular guy embarks on a virtual journey to complete a series of tasks set by the late founder of a popular gaming company Oasis. The prize?

8. I Am Legend
Starring Will Smith, this dystopian film is a must-watch. Given the similar times, you'll enjoy the movie even more and the story will hit the right spot. However, what I liked the most about this film is how every species on this planet, sick or otherwise is surviving on its own terms. Watch this movie for truckloads of action and spine-chilling drama.
