Even though they follow the traditional format of episodes, just like TV soap operas, web series are slightly different. The scale of a web series is small, and an episode’s length is anything from 15 minutes to 1 hour. The most important thing about web series is that they don't run as long as TV soap operas do, which can go on for years. This makes them more engaging for audiences in this fast-paced world, where people are tired of watching the same old stories go on for too long.

Now, after making a case for web series (it's not like we really needed to), here's a list of the best Hindi web series of 2024 so far. Have you watched them all or missed some? Here's your chance to catch up:

Heeramandi

IMDb rating: 6.6/10

Streaming platform: Netflix

Sanjay Leela Bhansali made his web series debut with Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. It racked up 33 million views in just two weeks of its release. Audiences have waited to watch SLB's magic on OTT for close to two years (that's when it was announced) and the wait certainly seems to be worth it. Heermandi, currently the most-searched drama on Google, is set in the 1940s, at a time when Britishers ruled India. It is about how helpless courtesans joined the revolutionary independence movement.
