Here’s a list of our recommended OTT releases of the week.
Bhoot Police (Disney+ Hotstar)
Arjun Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan pair up as exorcists in this horror comedy directed by Pavan Kirpalani. Bhoot Police tackles the subject of whether ghosts exist or is it just the superstition. Vibhooti (Saif Ali Khan) and Chiraunji (Arjun Kapoor) are brothers and ghostbusters who try to make a living by posing as exorcists and conning people by getting rid of their beliefs and superstitions on spirits and supernatural forces. The film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Yami Gautam, Jaaved Jaafri, and Jamie Lever in pivotal roles.
Lucifer Season 6 (Netflix)
In the Netflix original series’ new and final season, which almost didn’t get made, the Devil is the new Almighty. While Lucifer is caught between his fun time on Earth and his responsibilities in Heaven, the longer reality goes without a God, then the more it destabilizes. Then, there’s the addition of Rory (Brianna Hildebrand), a rebel angel who seems to want the vacant throne of Hell all to herself. Or to destroy Lucifer to destroy reality. Considering Netflix gave in to the viewers’ demand to make season 6, this one has a lot of expectation mounting on it.
