Netflix globally added a ‘shuffle play’ feature to its home screens earlier this year. Not sure what to watch? The service suggests what you might like based on your viewing behaviour and watchlist. It could be a TV show or a movie. We don’t have access to your data (yay privacy!), so let’s just do it the conventional way.
For this weekend, we have nine movies that would be worth your time. Grab your popcorn, hot dogs, drinks and the like and park yourself in front of the TV. In for some romance? Modern Love 2 just landed on Amazon Prime Video. How about a war drama? Bhuj: The Pride of India will intrigue you once you hop on to Disney Plus Hotstar. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, let’s look at all the options.

The second season of the Amazon Prime Video series Modern Love is inspired by essays from the New York Times’ column Modern Love. It has eight, 35-minute episodes. The series speaks of love that comes with second chances and forgiveness. The first season of the Emmy-nominated show had bowled all of us over. But the same cannot be said about the second season. This time, instead of focusing on the feeling of love, it’s heavy on the messaging. It works in fits and starts.
