Streaming Now: Ben Affleck in Triple Frontier, Idris Elba in Turn Up Charlie
Watch Ben Affleck in a heist movie, Mindy Kaling in a new comedy series and Idris Elba playing a washed-up DJ in titles streaming on Netflix this week.

Considering the number of new shows and movies Netflix drops every week, it is indeed difficult to filter out the ones worth watching. We make it easy for you, by sorting out a bunch of titles from different genres, so you can pick the ones most appealing to you. From comedy shows to Halloween classics, there is a wide range on offer this week. And if you are in the mood for a wacky Bengali movie, turn to ZEE5's The Lovely Mrs. Mukherjee.

Triple Frontier (Netflix)


For the first time in their prestigious careers, a bunch of unsung heroes undertake a dangerous mission for themselves instead of the country. A group of former Special Forces operatives reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. But when events take an unexpected turn, their skills, loyalties, and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival. The action thriller stars Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal.

Turn Up Charlie Season 1 (Netflix)


Idris Elba stars as a DJ in Turn Up Charlie, the new Netflix comedy series he is also executive producing. He plays a one hit wonder who is facing the possibility that he just may be past his prime. The failing DJ is aiming for one final shot to make it big. He thinks that chance has come when his famous best friend asks him for a favour - be a ‘manny’ for his troublesome daughter Gabby.

The Lovely Mrs. Mukherjee (ZEE5)


The Lovely Mrs. Mukherjee, directed by Indranil Roy Chowdhury and starring Swastika Mukherjee, is a woman’s fantasy tale. Mouri has a knack for spinning a fantasy out of the world's stories and works as a make-up artiste in the Bengali film industry. She goes to meet her prospective groom Shamik on an arranged date, who is not as interesting as Mouri would have liked. She uses her imagination to weave a macabre story of a woman’s revenge on her dead husband. Shamik eventually realizes that the woman sitting opposite him is nothing like the sweet domesticated bride that he had thought for himself.

Champions Season 1 (Netflix)


This American comedy television series created by Charlie Grandy and Mindy Kaling is finally coming on Netflix this week. Anders Holm plays Vince Cook, a gym owner living in Brooklyn with his brother Matthew, until Priya (Mindy), his girlfriend from high school, drops off their 15-yeatr-old son Michael to live with him. The series premiered to largely positive reviews, with the cast being praised for their performances.

Disney's Hocus Pocus (Netflix)
