Murder mysteries, comedies, and dramas - April 2021 will have an exciting bunch of movies and shows to look forward to.
The Big Bull premieres on April 8 on Disney+ Hotstar.
Several states of the nation have been forced back into a lockdown after a significant surge in the cases of Covid-19. This leaves movie buffs disappointed, for all theatres have been ordered shut in states such as Maharashtra. An added hurdle is the never-ending list of restrictions on movie shoots which have also delayed some big projects that audiences were dying to watch.
Though the thrill of watching a movie on a screen that’s 45 feet wide, with a big tub of buttery popcorn by your side, is unmatchable, OTT shows and movies were able to help us ride out the 2020 lockdown with relative ease. The current circumstance of a pandemic has left cinephiles no choice but to kick back, sink into their couches and turn to their favourite streaming service. As OTT platforms have picked up, some incredible shows and movies are also expected. If you’re spending your April staying home (like you should), we’ve got some upcoming shows and movies for you that you should definitely stream this month.
