In India, where a Prime membership runs at just Rs. 999 per year. If you were forced to choose in a fight between Amazon Prime vs Netflix, and you have ended up choosing Amazon Prime hastily. I’m here to support your step. If you subscribed to Prime just for the shows and movies, there’s not a huge difference between the two services - but Amazon Video does give you the option to pay for new films/shows a la carte, which is a nice option. Also, I have rounded up some of the best TV shows on Amazon Prime Video here for your perusal.
Mirzapur definitely hits the list, being the most watched Prime original since inception. This famous thriller crime story has many famous stars as their cast including Ali Fazal, Pankaj Tripathi, and Vikrant Massey. Mirzapur’s trite narrative template undermines its ambition to be the web's answer to Gangs of Wasseypur. This Amazon Prime original gets you interested but leaves you wanting with its abysmal cast line-up and elevated gangster saga. I strongly recommend Mirzapur, for its portrayal of stringent rivalry and real Indian political system.

On March 24, 2005, the whole world met Michael Scott (and Dwight Schrute).

The Office displays the hilarious workplace spoof filled with mature humor. Hotstar has started streaming the Indian remake of cult TV series The Office. I was laughing during “The Office” finale,and then I cried during “The Office” finale. And yeah, maybe that’s all you want from a finale: emotion and closure.
Gully Boy duo Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti, serves an ecstatic-drama about the surplus, hypocrisies, and darkness that endures in disguise of big, fat Indian weddings where tradition jostles modern ambitions.

Despite many faults,Made in Heaven is the best of what Amazon has produced in India.

Though Good Omens leaps around with creative space, the main story is the birth of the antichrist 11 years ago and how, through a series of "human" errors, the plan to switch the baby of an American ambassador (Nick Offerman) with said antichrist goes haywire.
Suspenseful, smart, and terrifically cast, Sneaky Pete is part dramedy, part crime caper, and all in all entertaining. A slow starter, with an engrossing storyline and interesting trail of characters, Sneaky Pete ends up drooling you over.

With a startling portrayal of an affair in its most intense, profoundly-taxing, emotionally draining,disgraceful reality, The Affair is an American television drama series created by Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi. A schoolteacher and budding novelist begin an extramarital affair with a young waitress trying to piece together her life in this sombre drama, delivering two strong seasons of deep and psychological observation.
