Yes, monsoon 2019 is all about breaking the dry spell, bringing freshness and spreading ’em cheerful vibes. But some of us go bleh because firstly, we get soaked to the bone, cannot step out because and makes us wanna curl up under a warm blanket and snuggle inside. Everyday tasks seem pretty boring except for one – binge-watch! Rainy days give you a golden opportunity to catch up or rewatch your favourite series or films and pass time as you stream your favourites on ZEE5! So, the next time you are having those grey-day blues, get set for a marathon of seriously addictive ZEE5 Original web shows and films. Bet you’d want the rain to stay by the time you hit the stop button.

Our love for Dia Mirza and Mohit Raina has only grown by manifolds in all these years, a fact attested by our attachment with their digital debut web series Kaafir. The Sonam Nair directorial web drama is the story of a Pakistani woman locked up in an Indian jail due to a series of unusual circumstances. Dia plays this very female lead character Kainaaz Akhatar while Mohit essays journalist cum lawyer Vedant Rathod. Vedant’s quest to send Kainaaz and her jail-born daughter Seher to their home follows the rest of the narrative of Bhavani Iyer’s prolific screenwriting.

2. The Final Call

It’s rare that a film gets you intrigued with the title itself. Sholay enjoys a cult following and is the ideal watch for any generation even today. The Sholay Girl, however, gets you reacquainted with Hema Malini’s famous Bhaag Dhanno, aaj teri Basanti ka izzat ka sawal hai all over. Take a trip down Bollywood’s memory lane and relive the iconic scene through the eyes of India’s first stuntwoman Reshma Pathan. Female ass-kickery guaranteed!
