Amazon Prime Video India Catalogue – Best Movies and Shows

Amazon Prime Video was introduced in India in 2016. Ever since Amazon Prime Videos have been launched in India, it has opened the door for a lot of entertainment for Indian Audience. The best part about Amazon Prime is it also has Amazon Prime Exclusive Videos (basically that streams only on Amazon). The membership rate currently for Amazon Prime is INR 999 per year (Which is less than 90 bucks a month) which is super reasonable. Amazon has movies, shows, comedy shows and a category allowed especially for kids.

Amazon Prime has so many choices to make that, after hours of browsing, we realize that we have wasted too much time on just figuring out what to watch and may end up not having time to watch at all. But why deprive yourself the joy of watching something when you actually can? I’ll help you help by suggesting a few movies and shows that could be something that you could watch next.

When on Amazon Prime, why not watch Amazon Prime Originals?

About the Show: Breathe has just launched its teaser and trailer and there is a lot of hype about this show already. The show is about a single parent (Madhavan) and his critically ill daughter who needs a lung transplant. Will he be able to find justice for his daughter and give her a new life? Watch Breathe to find out more. Also, I strongly believe that this show will be a great hit not just because of the star cast but also the producers of the show are the same as Baby and Airlift.

About the Movie: For those readers who are wondering why has this movie made it to my list, it is mainly because this movie has gone through a lot due to the certification board to censor a lot of scenes which almost made it lose its essence. The reason for this is the board is not used to having any filmmaker being brutally honest about the secret desires of a woman, and this movie has done that exactly.
