From Aarya to Rangbaaz: Indian crime shows you must binge-watch if you loved Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo

If you have already watched Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo and loved it, here are other Indian crime shows that you should binge-watch.



Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo

Helmed by Homi Adajania, Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo is getting rave reviews and social media buzz for its fictional Rann Pradesh and its drug empire run by four tough-as-nails women. Featuring Dimple Kapadia, Isha Talwar, Angira Dhar, and Radhika Madan in the lead roles, the crime show is leading the path for women-centred Hindi content on OTT platforms.

Dimple Kapadia plays Rani Baa in Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo. Raped and left to die in the desert, Rani builds the cartel under the name, Raani Cooperative, with her daughters-in-law Bijlie and Kajal, and daughter Shanta. Kapadia bosses over every frame and her accent brings to mind the fine grain of desert sand of Rajasthan and is unmissable. Her performance seems to have come from deep within and leaves doubt if someone else could have pulled it off the way she nailed it.

Rani Baa’s two NRI sons Harish and Kapil have no clue what is about to unfold when they land in Rann Pradesh for Janmashtami celebrations. Things get intense when Rani Baa announces her decision to name one of the six (including the sons) as her heir. With the meta-theme laid out, the background has many side stories blossoming. Bijlie has an affair with DJ Naina and Shanta’s relationship with the ‘brother from another mother’ Dhiman. Amid all the simulated sex and heavy breathing, drama, and two villains, Monk and Dil Samson, plotting against the cartel, Rani Baa shines through.
