A movie and a web series are about to release today for the Indian audience on the OTT platform. If you have nothing much to do with your time, you can watch these two amazing movies. MX Player’s new web series Runaway Lugaai is a rom-com drama with a desi vibe. Sardar Ka Grandson is a unique family entertainer from Netflix.
Sardar Ka Grandson: Netflix
A fresh cinematic experience is guaranteed with this fantastic Netflix movie starring Neena Gupta, Arjun Kapoor, and Rakul Preet Singh in the lead role. The story focuses on the family relationships and uses the ambitious grandson as the protagonist who will do anything to fulfill his grandmother’s wish.
The major plot of the movie revolves around the house moving concept which was never talked about among the Indian audience. Here so, even though it will offer you something new to witness, there are chances that you may feel completely disconnected.
The official synopsis of the movie reads, “A story of a romance that spans seven decades and two countries, a story of sub-continental hustling and earthy ingenuity, a story of victory against impossible odds. ‘Sardar Ka Grandson’ is a strange and sweet tale where petty egos, religion, enmity, borders, and oceans of red tape are all finally defeated by the simple humanity of one determined man.”
Runaway Lugaai: MX Player
The new MX Player show is a situational comedy set in the heartland of Bihar. It features Naveen Kasturia, Ruhi Singh, Sanjay Mishra, and Ravi Kishan in key roles. The series looks like an Indian take on the popular Hollywood movie Runaway Bride, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. But of course, maintaining a desi twist!
The official synopsis of the show reads, “Rajni, the only child of MLA Narendra Sinha, is far from his namesake. He is a submissive man who has lived his entire life under his father’s thumb as a pawn.”
“He could neither stand up to his father nor live up to his expectations. His life took a turn for the better when Rajni met and married Bulbul – a beautiful, chirpy, and free-spirited girl. However, his happiness did not last for long as Bulbul decided to run away without a trace.”
“What then begins is a chase to find the missing Bulbul and why she went missing – from the cops to speculation by the press, the unending games of politicians, and even an ex-lover in the mix – there are multiple reasons at play in this adventure.”
Do justice with your time. Sardar Ka Grandson and Runaway Lugaai both have different tastes and flavors. But there’s no doubt that both the movie is full of entertainment and power packed performance.
