  1. Nice suggestions. Mirzapur is a must watch series. Great work Brijesh keep going👍🏼

    • The digital space has not only opened up new avenues for the actors, but for the viewers as well. I love watching the shows that I want, on my own terms, within the comfort of my room, and at whatever time I want. And that’s the freedom OTT platforms has given us. I like watching shows in the crime-thriller genre and your article has listed them down a few. Mirzapur, Paatal-lok, sacred games are few of my favs. Thank you for the other suggestions.

  2. Sindhu N Bharadwaj Reply

      Well, due to lack of good and relatable content on television has pushed the people and few budding filmmaker’s to explore the market of so called Web-Series and create content which is fresh, relatable and remarkable, and thus it give hype to all the hindi web series to watch on various OTT platforms.

  4. Thankyou for the information. Some of them I have missed watching. Post reading your comments and a short description about the series, it makes it easy for me to decide which one to watch.
    Keep writing for much information.

  5. My all-time favorites are Sacred games and Scam 1992. Sacred game is the complete edge-of-seat thriller though it is slow, whereas scam 1992 is a pure swag series that talks about Harsha Metha’s masterpiece. Those two would never get bored, and it’s binge-watch for sure.

  6. This article is going to be great for every entertainer who would love binge-watching Hindi series. I would also suggest adding the forgotten army to the list, which was wrote based on actual events .

  7. I’m not a biggest fan of indian web series, but there are few indian web sereis which can give you chills to the bone, among which are sacred games and mirzapur, Sacred Games delves into the city’s intricate web of organized crime, corruption, politics and espionage that lie beneath India’s economic renaissance and mirzapur where shocking incident at a wedding procession ignites a series of events entangling the lives of two families in the lawless city of Mirzapur.

  9. 2020 had different plans for the whole world, lots of free time and unlimited internet at home constrained me to watch a lot of Indian web series. The above mentioned are the best series by different OTT platforms made over the last 2–3 years In India. Binged watched all of them but I liked ASUR a bit more.

  10. I watch a lot of series in the crime drama genre and I equally enjoy them. I have a suggestion please add/watch BOSE: Dead/Alive. Phenomenal acting by Rajkummar Rao and holds an IMDB rating of 9 approx. But a very well written blog and a great list of shows hosted and explained.

  11. I was never the one to watch Indian web series. I personally hate normal stories as our life is already normal, and watching something similar on a screen and spending 6 hours worth of time did not appease me. So I always stuck to English and American TV series but I had always thought that I wish our Indian shows to be great too. Thank you for recommending me to the top Hindi web series.

  12. I never thought that I would watch Hindi Web series, But this year I was in search of best web series because of this lockdown, This article helped me a lot by listing the best Hindi web series, Thank you so much for sharing this informative article.

  13. Mirzapur webseries is my favorite one, But I’ve gonna watch every hindi web series listed here, This lockdown I’ve got many good list of best hindi web series, definitely it’ll be the reason for my entertainment, Thank you for sharing with us.
