Thrillers have a fanbase of their own. Indian viewers can’t seem to get enough of them. Set in the picturesque snow capped hills of rural Himachal Pradesh, Aranyak follows the journey of two police officers as they look to hunt down a dreaded serial killer. The unexpected twist and the final climax had everyone talking about it. Netizens lauded the fine performances by the star cast and we salute the bold vision of Siddharth Roy Kapur who greenlit this gem.
Nikkhil Advani – Rocket Boys
The series is based on Dr Homi Bhabha, father of the Indian Nuclear Programme, and Dr Vikram Sarabhai, popularly known as the father of the Indian Space Programme. From the moment it was announced, people couldn’t stop raving about Rocket Boys. Its unique storytelling and the way it paid tribute to India’s scientific luminaries, as well as their struggle and hard work were all thanks to Nikkhil Advani’s belief in the concept.
Karnesh Ssharma – Mai and Qala
The recently released Qala is getting raving reviews on all social media platforms. The movie is melancholy not through spoken sentences but rather through its visuals and unique expressions by the leads in it. One the other hand we have two words for Mai – exquisite and gripping. Mai is an extraordinary revenge tale and one that keeps the viewers hooked till the end. Hats off to Karnesh Ssharma for backing such unique subjects.
