With the increasing popularity of web series, no one can deny that they are the future of the entertainment industry. In the last few years, while we saw a decline in the quality of Bollywood movies, the web series is gathering traction due to their better quality. Here are the top 20 rated Hindi web series that are way much better than many senseless Bollywood Movies.
Top Rated Hindi Web Series / Indian Web Shows As Per IMDb
IMDb Rating: 9.3
Plot: One of the finest Indian web series that you can’t afford to miss. It is the story of the journey of three UPSC (public service competitive exams in India) aspirants and their friendship against all odds.
Plot: Scam 1992 tops our list of best Hindi web series: Set in the 1980s and 90’s Bombay, it follows the life of Harshad Mehta, a stockbroker who took the stock market to dizzying heights followed by his catastrophic downfall. Everything from its theme music to its simplification of technical jargon, to its choice of filters, worked in the show’s favor.
Plot: The next web series on the list is Yeh Meri Family – a show full of sweet memories from childhood. Set in the summer of 1998, Yeh Meri Family is a story about different emotions towards family members from the eyes of a twelve-year-old, Harshu. Capturing the perfect vibe of the 90s, this series will leave you touched and smiling.
Plot: The next on our list of best Hindi web series is Kota Factory, India’s first black-and-white web series. This powerful web series presented a hilariously honest story of the infamous coaching institutes of Kota, and the rat race to clear the IIT-JEE engineering examination.
Plot: Much before web series became a common (or rather, preferred) source of entertainment, Pitchers was the show that had the audience ditching the TV and looking to their laptops. It was entertaining, relatable, and fast-paced – elements that are crucial to the success of a limited web series. To date, we are waiting for another season to come out.
Plot: Starring Jeetendra Kumar, this TVF series won many hearts with its simplicity. A comedy-drama, which captures the journey of an engineering graduate Abhishek, who for lack of a better job option joins as secretary of a Panchayat office in a remote village of Uttar Pradesh.
Plot: The web show captures the lives of India’s two very famous physicists, Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and Dr. Homi J Bhabha. These two stalwarts were the pioneers of India’s space industry and nuclear program.
Where to watch: You can watch it on SonyLiv
IMDb Rating: 8.9
Plot: Another Indian web series that made our list is F.L.A.M.E.S – A teenage romance from The Timeliners. The show aims straight from the heart. This web series is the story of a young romance unfolding as a chemical reaction. All seasons of F.L.A.M.E.S are available on TVF Play.
Plot: One of the best series, Manoj Bajpayee-starrer The Family Man had us hooked. A working man from the National Investigation Agency tries to protect the nation from terrorism, but he also needs to keep his family safe from his secret job. Unlike many other series, The Family Man did not disappoint the audience with Season 2 and kept them as engaged as they did during Season 1.
Plot: Created by Neeraj Pandey, Special Ops started in a promising manner and largely stuck to the promise. Kay Kay Menon fit right into Himmat’s part and was easily the show-stealer here. The only con here, in our opinion, was the fact that the stakes were never just high enough for us to be concerned about the good guys in the finale.
Plot: Indian classical singer Radhe and pop star Tamanna. Despite their contrasting personalities, the two set out together on a journey of self-discovery to see if opposites, though they might attract, can also adapt and go the long haul.
Plot: The show that first introduced us to Mikesh and Tanya, presented the challenges of live-in, long-distance, and marriage. The funny and heart-warming love story captures how a couple, who were in a long-distance relationship for 3 years, face the prospect of getting married.
Plot: A shockingly violent revenge drama, Mirzapur became much more than a tale of guns and curses because of its unexpected plot twists and fleshed-out characters. And while Pankaj Tripathi’s ability to nail a layered character was never in question, Ali Fazal and Divyendu Sharma’s performances were a pleasant surprise indeed.
