The weekend is approaching. We’ve also got binge-watching recommendations for the best OTT releases of the week. If you, like us, were highly anticipating a romance-themed release on Valentine’s Day, prepare to be disappointed. There is only one major original release from India this week. Karan Johar’s Love Storyiyaan contains six unique love stories where love breaks free from the shackles of social and cultural norms. Shah Rukh Khan’s box office hit Dunki had its OTT premiere on Netflix on January 15 without much prior buzz. Rajkumar Hirani’s heart-warming comedy is about the ‘donkey’ path to entering the country illegally. This process is so prevalent in the Indian state of Punjab that Hirani rightly centered the film there. Kerala Story has also finally released on Zee5 after weeks of speculation. The controversial film claims mass religious conversion of Hindu and Christian women in Kerala.

Among the other theatrical releases are the Prabhas-starrer action drama Salaar (Hindi dubbed version) and the sci-fi adventure film Dune. The film tells the story of a noble family who becomes embroiled in a war for control of the galaxy’s most precious asset. However, the sequel, Dune Part Two, is scheduled to be released on March 1st.

If you’re looking to try out new international releases, pick up the second season of Polish comedy Kill Me If You Dare, German heartfelt drama The Heartbreak Agency, Japanese suspense show House of Ninjas or Jordanian teen drama AlRawabi School for Girls. .

For those looking for fresh comic book content, Taylor Tomlinson’s third Netflix special, Have It All, is now available. Here, Taylor opens up about her own life after her breakup and answers some old questions. Can you have it all? But I think her previous two specials were much funnier than this one. This did not replicate her previous style. .

If you’re a documentary lover, Netflix’s Einstein and the Bomb is for you. This docudrama will take you into Einstein’s painful mind after fleeing Germany. Get ready for tons of archive footage and tons of melodrama.

Well, that’s it. Have fun driving!

One of the most controversial releases of 2023, The Kerala Story is now available to stream on Zeee5. Here, Adah Sharma is seen playing a nursing student who is brainwashed into converting to Islam along with her two friends. How she became involved with ISIS, how she became an ISIS terrorist, and how she ended up in an Afghan prison is the crux of the story.

The film initially received a lot of backlash after claiming that around 32,000 Hindu and Christian girls were unknowingly converted to Islam between 2016 and 2018, without any hard evidence. The promotional material was later removed as the claims were not supported by fact. But the film caused a lot of controversy in newsrooms.
