The top TV shows for 2020, the year where even the fact that you could watch TV was a top reason to be on the top list.
Director Hansal Mehta spins a fantastic web of financial crimes and manipulation, putting out one of this year’s best.
Director Todd Haynes paints a grim picture of corporate malfeasance. It’s not fun, but it’s an important watch.
Director Sharan Sharma keeps emotions running on an even keel in his likeable and warm-hearted look at Gunjan Saxena’s flights (and per the IAF, gender-fights) of fancy.
Director Anu Menon keeps it light and pacy, not pausing even she ought to have. But with Vidya Balan around, an enigma becomes humane.
Director Cory Finley spins a tight tale about a true-life embezzlement scandal that throws light on an education system that encourages top rankings for schools at a price no one knows they’re paying. Or do they? Oh yeah, and Hugh Jackman shines in a layered act.
Director Meghna Gulzar’s steady, empathetic commentary on a burning issue that’s stayed far too long beneath the societal skin, singes that very protective layer.
‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ is a gloriously entertaining spectacle. History students and crocodile lovers, beware.
The top TV shows of 2019.
Raunchy, loud, boisterous, and funky. That’s the name of the blaxploitation game, and Eddie Murphy’s is at the top of his effing game.
