Bored Of Saas-Bahu Sagas OR Other Shitty Serials On TV? Watch These Awesome Indian Web Series Instead

live in the age of internet. Be it buying food or condoms, for everything, we just go online. We do the same when it comes to entertainment. And after we’re done watching our favourite American and British TV shows, we wonder if there’s something that we could watch that was a little closer to home, a little desi. Of course, watching the idiot box is just not an option all thanks to Sasural Simar Ka and the likes. The answer, then, comes in the form of web series.

With a lot of independent producers along with established production houses making web series, the Indian audience is finally getting great content to watch. They don’t alienate us in any way and frankly, are far more relatable than any American show will ever be.

Here’s a list of 10 Indian web series that you need to watch right away!

1. Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa

This new web series by Y Films has just released two episodes until now and has already got the audience’s attention. The series focuses on innocent questions about sex that all of us had as kids. In the first episode, Pappu, a 6-year-old kid asks his father about masturbation. The father dodges the question initially but realises that it’s only wise to have a transparent conversation about sex and all things related with his child. This series certainly encourages sex education which has always been a taboo in our society.

2. Girl in the City

This series by bindass chronicles the journey of Meera, a girl from Dehradun who comes to Mumbai to accomplish her dreams of being a stylist. The series shows her struggles of being an intern at a fashion house and living in the ‘city of dreams’. The show also features Rajat Barmecha (of Udaan fame) in a pivotal role. It’s light entertainment and certainly fun to watch.

3. Permanent Roommates

This show certainly brought the trend of web series to the forefront. With their spot on comic timing perfectly meshed with the right dose of emotions, this series still stands out in the genre of web series. The story of a couple who has been in a long distance relationship for three years and are then faced with the prospect of marriage is a story that’s relatable to many of us. So far the makers have released only two seasons. You have to be living under a rock to have not seen this yet!

4. Pitchers

Pitchers is definitely a must watch series for everyone who’s hungry for good content. The story of 4 guys who quit their jobs to launch a start up was relatable to this generation who share similar dreams. The writing, the acting and the execution of this series is simply top notch.

5. I Don’t Watch TV

If you despise Indian television, this series is just for you. This series takes a ‘spoof-like’ approach on the making of Indian television soaps & happily acknowledges that the actors working on TV are just as frustrated as the viewers.
