Mainly due to its affiliation with Star India – a company owned by The Walt Disney Company. Of course, the association with HBO and their entire catalog is a plus.

Best Disney+ Hotstar Shows to Binge Right Now
Mare of Eastown
If we said Kate Winslet was the show’s best aspect, we would be undermining its powerful themes in the process.
The character played by Winslet is so brilliantly developed that it almost obscures how well the show tackles coping with burdens of responsibility, leaving loved ones behind, and what unprocessed grief can do. With the typical crime investigation arc used to further explore the more enormous scope of a mystery, the result is an exceptional series.
Chernobyl is HBO’s latest experimental miniseries, the subject of much discussion. As a result of the production association with Sky UK, the Chernobyl series currently holds an IMDb score of 9.6. It has been praised for its extreme intensity and detailed telling of the story. A show based on the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics examines one of the world’s biggest man-made catastrophes from the inside.
Big Little Lies
Big Little Lies, a series created by HBO, has been hot on the internet this season.
With the addition of veteran actor Meryl Streep, the cast of all-women characters in Big Little Lies became a big hit in 2017. Despite featuring some of the best TV performances in the past decade, the show also revealed that even wealthy families have horrifying and downright unbearable secrets.
It’s Always Sunny in Philidelphia
As the longest-running show on FX and TV history in general, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia follows a group of friends who run an Irish pub in South Philadelphia. Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, the show offers clever insights into taboo topics. Despite being called the most ambitious comedy show to Seinfeld on crack, nothing seems to make this show lose interest.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars in HBO’s long-running comedy (the final season aired this year) as Selina Meyer, who finds herself becoming Vice President of the United States, only to discover that it is not what she had expected. A spoof of current political situations is occasionally absurd and sometimes bonkers, and the comedy revolves around her. Louis-Dreyfus’s performance makes this comedy constantly entertaining, making it one of the best shows ever.
I May Destroy You
The undeniable talent of Michaela Coel truly stands out in her new HBO series ‘I May Destroy You.’ Headlining a superb cast, Coel stars as Arabella – a Twitter star turned novelist struggling to meet the deadline of her second novel post the fame she got out of her first one – a self-assessing book titled ‘Chronicles of a Fed-Up Millennial.’ Set in London, the show uses dark humor and wit to investigate a pretty severe case of sexual abuse.
I Know This Much Is True
HBO’s new miniseries, directed by Derek Cianfrance, is undoubtedly one of the best shows currently available on Hotstar premium.
Based on Wally Lamb’s acclaimed novel of the same name, ‘I Know This Much is True’ stars Mark Ruffalo as twin brothers Dominick and Thomas Birdsey. It follows the brothers’ lives as Dominick tries to help Thomas cope with his paranoid schizophrenia episodes.
Silicon Valley serves as a sharp critic of the culture it replicates. The show unravels the turbulent life that Richard Hendricks goes through when planning to start his own company named Pied Pier. It’s all about the struggles and competition he has to face to keep his company afloat against entities trying to sabotage him. With a cast that exudes sharp humor, the show has received numerous awards and is one of the most popular funniest shows ever made.
In the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) channel, The Newsroom chronicles the behind-the-scenes activities of an anchor (a never-better Jeff Daniels), who, along with his team, fights corporate obstacles to gain access to something genuinely unsettling.
This sometimes preachy book is elevated by Sorkin’s sharp dialogue and intriguing character development.
Pamela Adlon (Californication fame) stars in this comedy series as a divorced Hollywood actress trying to deal with the lives of her three daughters. In 2017 and 2018, she won multiple Primetime Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. The show has been described as constantly entertaining its audiences with a fresh feminist verve that breaks new ground now and then.
