5 exciting thriller movies on Netflix, Disney + Hotstar and Voot Select to watch today
1. Guardians – Disney + Hotstar
One show that I thought was grossly underrated until it literally won the 2020 Emmys (rightfully so) was Damon Lindelof’s GuardsAn adaptation of HBO’s critically acclaimed comic book series Guards touches on topics such as racial injustice and systemic violence that eventually caused masked vigilantes to take over society. Every episode in this miniseries is packed with so much information that you just can’t lose your focus. Guards is intense, crunchy and in every way a distraction that is guaranteed to make your Sunday a whole lot better.
2. Your Honor – Voot Select
Who wouldn’t love a show from Bryan Cranston that reminded them a lot of his Walter White character? Your honor this time, the talented actor stars as a respected judge who is willing to go to extremes to hide his son’s hit-and-run. In the process, he opens a can of worms that raises the stakes a lot more than he expected. The first reviews of the show have been very positive and it is certainly a show for you to enjoy.
3. Uncut Gems – Netflix
A film so claustrophobic that every second you watch, you feel like the walls are only creeping in to end up turning everything upside down, Uncut gemstones is a textbook example of a poignant thriller. The story follows a Jewish hustler, played by Adam Sandler, who is determined to make money. He finally finds a precious stone that he could cash in, only to let his past mistakes come back and haunt him. Uncut gemstones Was disapproved by the Academy, but directors Safdie Brothers have created a masterpiece not to be missed.
4. Run – Disney + Hotstar
Just because it’s a thriller doesn’t mean you can’t laugh.

5. Jamtara – Netflix
A show that really went under the radar, but was a really enjoyable watch JamtaraBased in a village in Uttar Pradesh where the youngsters run an organized phishing syndicate.
