Hanna (Amazon Prime)
The new eight-episode Amazon series Hanna, based on the 2011 art-house actioner of the same name, lacks the signature, vaguely surreal visual punch of the original, but has a satisfyingly pulpy story. In equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama, the series follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.
Starring Divyendu Sharma and directed by Parijat Joshi, this short film premiering on April 1 is about a struggling call center employee whose life changes when he stumbles upon a salesman in a bus. The film is a light-hearted drama about patience and about a man struggling to understand the value of this virtue.
Adah Sharma is making her digital debut with this short film, which is about a young girl in depression, who, after losing her parents, realizes the choices she made has cost her a lifetime of guilt and regret, but it’s too late to bring them back or to even turn back time. She is now left with questions that remain unanswered. This film, by Kabir Thapar and Kevin Kailash Muthiah, premieres on April 4.
