Desi Web SeriesThere’s nothing we Indians aren’t good at when we put our heart and soul into it. The way Indian entertainment industry has grown in the recent years is remarkable. The quality of content, the level of acting, the story line, you name it and we have nailed it. Not that there weren’t good shows before but we definitely have come a long way. The rise of OTT platforms in India in the past few years has been one of the foremost reason of the tremendous growth in this area of work.

It’s not hidden from anybody how complex our system is at times and the film industry is not an exception to it. Various artists and content makers have expressed the difficulty in getting certification for release of their work. But with the advent of various OTT platforms, which do not require such certifications, the flow of creative juices is now pretty much unhindered. You just have to have an amazing story and equally amazing actors and there you are streaming on the devices of millions.

Here are some of the exemplary Indian Web-Series works out there –
