  • Shoplifters, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Coronavirus

    Shoplifters: "My first recommendation would be Shoplifters on Netflix. It's a 2018 Japanese drama by Hirokazu Koreeda that traces the story of a dysfunctional family. It has a slow pace, but the lockdown is the perfect time to widen your horizon when it comes to movie consumption," says Bhasin.

It was the first time that film budgets [were commissioned] for long-format storytelling on television, making it a path-breaking series", says Tahir.

  • Borgen, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Coronavirus

    Borgen: "Being a fan of House of Cards, I revisited Borgen, the Danish political thriller that is said to be the inspiration for the American drama", says the Mardaani actor. The three-series drama first premiered in 2010.

  • Stalker, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Coronavirus

    Stalker: The movie that left an indelible impact on his mind was Tarkovsky's sci-fi offering, Stalker (1979). "It's available on YouTube.

I was able to relate to it as it almost mirrors our current situation", says Bhasin.
