Danish Ali Baig: Don’t you want to know the truth about what happened?
Nanki Dutta: Why? Is the truth going to set me free?
Danish: I can’t be sure about that, but I do know that denial won’t.

Guilty on Netflix starring Kiara Advani: Despite it’s many deficiencies, worth a watch.

Finished Sinners S1 and about to finish S2, the whydunnit on Netflix. Dark, creepy with good character development and a good watch for lovers of the psychological/Crime genre.

Started DARK on Netflix, with so huge rave reviews I currently am a little disappointed with the first 4 episodes atleast. I am finding hard time keeping my interest, it not getting as interesting as I would have wanted. Its super slow (which I am ok, but ) still it has to be interesting.

If anyone has seen DARK complete seasons, can guide if it gets interesting after 4 episodes or if not then I will ditch it.

Most of us were frustrated with the delay tactics, avenues open to criminals to prolong the court cases and appeal after appeal to prevent punishment being meted out that dragged the Nirbhaya case for 8 years. India alone does not suffer from archaic laws and ineffective guidelines. No wonder most cases involving influential people drag on for decades and these culprits may die due to natural causes before justice prevails! You know where we inherited these laws from!

Thanks to Janta curfew - binge watched "A Confession" an ITV (British) production. Six episodes of 45 minutes each. This true story mini-series is well acted and presented. The loopholes available in the justice system for criminals to exploit, morons who are stickler for such stupid rules, imbecile bosses and ambitious underlings waiting to pull you down etc felt so real that they left me infuriated - reason for the rant in the above paragraph!

Worth a watch - I rate it 8/10

Time now for a Swedish series! 8 episodes of around 50minutes. Available on Netflix. Excellent production, editing, very good pace, tight script and presentation - binge watched over two days! Nail biting, edge of the seat stuff with some interesting twists and turns! My other favourite in this genre Homeland - the recent seasons seem a little bit drab compared to this. Pervin played by Gizen Erdogan and Nora Rios as Sulle get into the skin of their roles well.

Are the superlatives really the effect of lock-down?! Checking back, some situations do seem a bit contrived, bgm not up to mark, hated the season finale, you do need to pay attention to and remember who is who... and so on. Some may feel that it takes a rather one sided view of a particular community - some are portrayed as evil, most others are easily brainwashed or swayed by propaganda.

Plot: National Security agent Fatima receives a tip that a terrorist attack against Sweden is in the planning stage. Meanwhile Sulle, a teenage girl in Stockholm, gets interested in her student assistant who opens doors to a new and fascinating world - the true path. Kalifat (original name) is a thriller about the intermingled fates of five young women who get caught up in the seducing and destroying force of religious fundamentalism.

My rating 8.5 / 10

Yes
It gets interesting by the end of the season. It's like "playing chess alone" after that :)

Time for some easy viewing action/thriller/crime drama stuff after the intense Caliphate and A Confession.

Covert Affairs is on Amazon prime. The original series ran from 2010-2014. Has a critics rating of 93% on rotten tomatoes, imdb rating of 7.3.

It is a slick, entertaining espionage drama. Piper Perabo is the central character - a female spy (It is PG rated before you get your hopes up!) who evolves from being a greenhorn fetching coffee for her colleagues to a seasoned spy. A blind tech geek supports her ops. Finished first season of 11 episodes of roughly 45 minutes each in about two days - once again thanks to the lock-down! 3 episodes into the second season. Bit cliched, predictable, but actions scenes are pretty good and plot of each standalone episode is also engaging.
