Hasan Minhaj’s Netflix Special: Emotional & Funny!

Upon my daughter’s recommendation, I recently watched Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King on Netflix and simply loved it! I hadn’t heard of Hasan Minhaj until the recent White House correspondents dinner when he was trending on social media for his hilarious jokes.

Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King is not only hilarious but also quite emotional in places. Both me (as an immigrant) and my daughter (as an American born Indian) connected with him so much that its impossible to not like him. What I loved about Hasan is how connected he is to his roots and his culture. His usage of Hindi was apt and spoke volumes about his ingrained culture. In this day and age, a lot of immigrants let go of their cultural roots in order to fit in but Hasan seems like his is very comfortable in his skin and that to me is his USP.

This one and a half hour Netflix special is worth watching and you will really crack up in places and connect so much emotionally as well!

Agent Raghav is a gripping crime thriller!

I am always on the lookout for watching fresh content on Netflix and I recently discovered this Indian crime thriller series called Agent Raghav. I have to say I am quite impressed!

There are a lot of factors that go into making a good television series that can last a number of years and Agent Raghav seems to have cracked the formula. Each episode is different and delves into solving a crime in a fresh and unique way. I like the fact that the show doesn’t follow any template and therefore it is not predictable and keeps us wanting for more. The characters are well casted and serve the purpose they are supposed to, i.e. keep the audience engaged.

If you like watching crime thrillers, check Agent Raghav out!
