Amazon Prime has slowly started taking over the monopoly Netflix has set. With a lot of new exciting series, movies, and documentaries, Amazon Prime is set to take over the platforms! We have come up with a list of 5 Amazon Prime originals you can watch till you drop!

1. Mirzapur 

Mirzapur Webseries

While that’s the basic concept of the series, the script has everything that makes an iconic crime-based web series. There’s confidence, there’s deceit, there’s violent and people caught in the violence. There are people with a conscience and then others with a conscience as weak as a paper boat on a rainy day.  The gritty screenplay that’s a twisted ride gets out of the 80s hangover almost immediately once the characters are introduced and set up.

Creators Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna create intense and engaging characters. They know this is 2018 and need their roles to be as cutting edge as they are rooted in retro, rustic India. However, the two keep the core of good storytelling in mind – evil emanates only when the good stay quiet. So, the screenplay is smattered with the antagonists doing what they shouldn’t, because the other, like-minded people just keep glaring away at the unseen horizon, maybe waiting for the right time to strike, or perhaps they are just too taken up by the messiah concept and are waiting for someone to come out and save them.
