It follows the daily lives of the couple. It’s very light-hearted, yet relevant and relatable.

Viewers will end up finding a lot of “little things” in common with the couple.

It’s almost like a relationship mirror for young couples still struggling to find their footing in the world.


Breathe is the story of love and desperation where a father will go to any extent, even to the point of murdering people, to save his son.

The protagonist in Breathe, Danny (R Madhavan), finds out that his son Josh is terminal and in need of a transplant.

He then devises a plan to get Josh’s name on top of the organ donor list, but his methods are not as conventional as you might think.

Danny’s troubles worsen when he finds himself the subject of a police investigation, one he desperately wanted to avoid.

Jestination Unknown

This is a travel series that trails actor-comedian Vir Das as he sets out with his friends to discover India’s comedy heritage.

The group explores comedy cliches in Patiala and gets a masterclass from local comedy poets in Lucknow.

It’s one of those feel-good travel shows that you can catch up on if you’re trying to brush off the feeling of being shut-in during this ongoing pandemic.

All the shows are available on Netflix
