The Oscar winning Korean film Parasite is finally available on Amazon Prime Video. Whether you didn't get a chance to watch it in a theatre, or want to revisit this tragi-comedy thriller again, now is your chance.
Netflix has released a slice-of-life film called Maska, starring Manisha Koirala as a Parsi woman who runs an Irani café. Her son, instead of carrying forward the family's legacy, wants to sell off the café to fulfill his Bollywood dreams. Expect lots of Parsi accent, food and glimpses of old Bombay in this movie.
