Covid-19 may have again kept us inside our homes this weekend but OTT has our entertainment needs covered. This week, three movies should be on your watch list. Ayushman Khurrana-Vaani Kapoor-starrer Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, on Netflix, is one to turn to for plenty of drama and a tastefully delivered message. Over on Amazon Prime Video, Allu Arjun’s Pushpa hits the small screen, having created quite a stir in theatres. Lastly, George Clooney-directed The Tender Bar is one for the drama enthusiasts but don’t expect much from this Ben Affleck starrer.
Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor film, that released in the theaters in December, is now streaming on Netflix. Helmed by Abhishek Kapoor, the romantic drama revolves around a weight-lifter Manu (Khurrana) and Zumba teacher Maanvi Brar (Kapoor). The two fall in love but problems start creeping into their paradise when the truth about Maanvi’s sexuality comes out.

The action-thriller starring Allu Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Faasil is still going strong in the cinema halls. But if you are hesitant about visiting a theater amid raising coronavirus cases, the film is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Indianexpress.com film critic Manoj Kumar R appreciated Allu Arjun’s performance and wrote in his 3-star review, “Allu Arjun walks away with the film with his strong performance. He embraces his deglamorized look and delivers a memorable performance. He also tickles our funny bone with his bromance with his sidekick.”
