Streaming Now: Netflix's Soni, Amazon Prime's True Detective May Impress This Week
There’s something for car lovers and '90s cartoons lovers on the streaming platforms this week. Here's our pick of the best movies and show on Netflix, Hotstar, Amazon Prime and ZEE5.

A film on gender disparity in the police force, a series on Ruskin Bond’s ghost stories or reinventing a popular '90s cartoon – we have listed the top 5 shows and movies streaming online that will surely have you hooked this week.

Soni (Netflix)

Soni looks at the issue of gender disparity, from within the system, for a change. Ivan Ayr’s debut feature film is about a young policewoman, Soni, in Delhi, and her superintendent, Kalpana, who have collectively taken on a growing crisis of violent crimes against women. The film explores gender politics through its eponymous protagonist, and how her alliance with Kalpana suffers a major setback when Soni is transferred out for alleged misconduct on duty. The film had its world premiere in the Horizons section at the Venice Film Festival.

True Detective Season 3 (Hotstar Premium)

Hotstar is bringing the third season of True Detective this week, with Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali as an emotionally disturbed person trying to solve the disappearance of children in a rural area in Arkansas. Ali's varied and measured performance stands head to toe with Matthew McConaughey's outstanding work in Season 1, and he's the main reason creator Nic Pizzolatto's third season is as powerful and intense as it is.

The Grand Tour Season 3 (Amazon Prime)
