Let’s face the truth. Working from home, locked-down life, living inside closed confinements for over a year is hard. We, humans, are social creatures. We love to meet friends and family, enjoy the open air, and sunlight. But, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are forced to stay indoors. Therefore, we all tend to look for ways to entertain ourselves, to feel the outdoors indoors. That’s where OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime + Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Apple TV swoop in because there we have endless options of entertainment – movies, shows, docu-series, and much more. Truly, OTT platforms have something for everybody. That’s what we have brought a list of movies, shows, and docu-series for you to watch this weekend.
Not to Worry, we will compile a new list of movies for every weekend. So, stay tuned. Without further ado, let’s get started.
