Bridgerton (2020)

An interesting combination of a period drama with the notoriety of modern day television, it weaves interesting scandals, highs and lows with well written characters.

The story highlights certain stereotypes and does away with others. The plot moves fast with conventional drama playing out with a contemporary twist.

Netflix has invested a lot in the show which has been very well received with lots of plots open for season 2. My favourite, the narration by Julie Andrews!

Rebecca (2020 film)

A romantic thriller by Ben Wheatley, the film offers everything it promises. Based on the 1938 novel of the same name, the plot is intriguing with enough suspense and mystery to have you invested and interested till the end.

The lead actors do a nuanced job of keeping you guessing while moving the plot along. The twist, when it appears, isn’t entirely a surprise but plausible.

Good performances in a different yet understandable story.


Jane the Virgin (2014-2019)

A telenovela style soap opera-ish comedy series, this was a stress buster with many memorable moments.

The satire like approach makes for light viewing, plenty of cliffhangers, unpredictable plot twists which is enjoyable because of the eccentric and well defined characters and their unique traits.

A constant need to know ‘what’s next’ keeps the viewer glued to the drama which finally comes to an appropriate conclusion at the end of its fifth and final season.

Worth the ride if this style of story telling appeals to you. There is something here for everyone.

The Queen’s Gambit (2020)

Based on the novel of the same name by Walter Tevis, this miniseries is brilliant at challenging and breaking stereotypes.

Director Scott Frank has painted a challenging world where we don’t feel sorry for anyone, we just root for them because of the way they handle and conduct their lives

The result? A prodigy who goes on to become a Chess phenomenon, taking on the greats in the realm. A riveting watch with a wonderful performance by the lead, Anya Taylor-Joy and every other cast member.

A must watch, with a pertinent message that is driven home plenty of times!

Freaky (2020)

A tongue in cheek type of silly horror film, with gore that makes you cringe but not laugh, though the plot twist does!

Lots of obstacles where two customary characters embellish the proceedings, we are eventually faced with a closing window of time to tie up the plot.

The end finally comes much after we think the story has played itself out, to leave us with a pertinent message.

Not bad, but not freaky either!
