As the year 2022 is about to end, we have compiled some of the most hyped OTT series and movies. These web series created a lot of buzz. Some of them received a thumbs-up from the audience and some were rejected. Here are the most hyped web series and movies released on OTT and audience verdict about the shows and movies!
1. A Thursday
Yami Gautam’s starrer crime thriller – A Thursday, premiered on Disney+Hotstar, earlier this year. This vigilante thriller movie, packed with great performances by Yami Gautam, Neha Dhupia, Atul Kulkarni, and Dimple Kapadia, became a sleeper hit. The movie deserved all the hype it created.
2. Gullak 3
Gullak is one of the highest-rated OTT Hindi shows on IMDb. So, when the makers announced that the show is returning with a third season, it got many excited. Season 3 showcased how the Mishra family managed to cope with financial troubles in their own unique quirky way. The show is so relatable that it leaves you nostalgic. How this show beautifully connected with the audience makes this show a huge success. The series received a lot of love and affection from the audience. In case you haven’t watched it yet, stream it to SonyLiv and enjoy life with the Mishra family.
3. Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen
Another show that created a lot of hype is Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhein. With minimal expectations, this show received a lot of appreciation. With the hard-hitting performances of Tahir Raj Bhasin, Shweta Tripathi, and Aanchal Singh, this show didn’t disappoint at all. Though the story of the show wasn’t unconventional, the way the plot was handled made it an interesting watch. You can watch it on Netflix.
4. Koffee With Karan 7
Koffee with Karan needs no introduction. The show’s latest season was directly released on Disney+Hotstar. Though the show created a lot of buzz and controversies, this season was criticized for its lack of entertaining content. Sadly, once a hugely popular show, left many disappointed this time!
Another show that created a lot of buzz is Mai. With Sakshi Tanwar’s hard-hitting portrayal of a grieving mother, this show touched many hearts. The show captured the mother’s journey to finding her daughter’s killers. Though the thriller received a lukewarm reaction from the audience, Sakshi Tanwar’s outstanding performance received a lot of praise. And, we must say she deserved it! You can watch it on Netflix.
6. Panchayat 2
After the successful Season 1, the popular show Panchayat returned with season 2. The show revolves around an engineering graduate who due to a lack of job options takes up a job as a Panchayat Secretary. Panchayat features Jitendra Kumar, Raghubir Yadav, Neena Gupta, Biswapati Sarkar, and Chandan Roy. After its release, the show became a national craze. With a lot of laughing and heart-touching moments, this show deserves all the hype. This show turned into one of the most successful shows of the year. In case you haven’t watched it yet, stream it on Amazon Prime Video.
7. Indian Matchmaking 2
Though Indian Matchmaking was declared a cringe watch, it created a lot of buzz. Many conversations about patriarchal and regressive mindsets went viral on Twitter. But, when the show returned back with season 2, we feel it didn’t manage to create the same hype as that of season 1. The show is available on Netflix.
8. Delhi Crime 2
After the successful season 1, Delhi Crime returned back with another season. The show revolved around a group of killers, who were part of the Kachchan Baniyan gang. The season captured serial killings of elite old people who lived alone. With power-hitting performances of Shefali Shah and Rasika, this show won many international awards. And, we believe the show managed to meet the hype. The show is available on Netflix.
Amazon Prime’s first Indian Legal drama that follows the journey of two young and ambitious lawyers and college friends Kashaf Quaze and Deepak Rana. The show created a lot of buzz because of its talented star cast and hard-hitting content. The show stars talented Shriya Pilgaonkar and Varun Mitra in lead roles. In case you haven’t watched it, you can stream it on Amazon Prime Video.
Featuring a strong star cast, Amazon Prime Video’s highly anticipated Gehraiyaan created a lot of buzz. Directed by Shakun Batra, this romantic drama starred Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Pandey, and Dhairya Karwa in the lead roles. But, while the movie created a lot of buzz, it couldn’t stand up to the hype. The overhyped movie turned into a disaster and left many disappointed. You can watch it on Amazon Prime Video.
11. Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives 2
A reality show that captured the lives of Bollywood Wives returned back with season 2. The show built around the lives of Seema Khan, Neelam Kothari, Maheep Kapoor, and Bhavana Pandey created a lot of buzz. But, the show failed to leave many impressed. The show is available on Netflix.
Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah, and Vijay Varma starrer Darlings created a lot of buzz. And, we must say that it deserved all the hype. This dark comedy about an abusive marriage left many impressed. Darlings turned out to be one of the most successful OTT movies of 2022. In case you haven’t watched it, you can stream it on Netflix.
