I have been waching tv series since 2013 and watched almost all good tv series. Here my best 15 indian web series...
1. Scam 1992
This Hansal Mehta series raised the bar for Indian web content in 2020, and the impact of this Pratik Gandhi-led series will surely go a long way. In the space where violence and gore sell like hotcakes, Mehta’s show proved that good content does not require to be dumbed down to reach the masses. With just a couple of episodes, Scam 1992, based on Harshad Mehta’s securities scam, draws you completely into the world of share market. Everything from its theme music, to its simplification of technical jargon, to even its choice of filter worked in the show’s favour. The casting of the show has been praised in the last couple of months and deservedly so.
This TVF show released in 2021 on YouTube and gained a large following with its five episodes. Starring Naveen Kasturia, Sunny Hinduja, and others in significant roles, Aspirants follows candidates who are preparing for their UPSC exams, which are said to be one of the toughest entrance examinations all over the world. The series released in a weekly pattern on YouTube, which contributed to its large following as the viewers did not need to subscribe to an OTT platform.
Pitchers released back in 2015 and has continued to be one of the fan favourites over the last seven years. Pitchers was one of the early shows in the India that started the revolution of India’s digital content journey. The show followed a group of entrepreneurs who are trying to get their start-up off the ground. The show had its original run on YouTube but is now available on SonyLIV and TVF Play.
Another TVF series, Kota Factory streamed on YouTube in 2019 and followed the coaching culture that’s prevalent in the city of Kota, Rajasthan. Starring Jitendra Kumar and Mayur More, Kota Factory struck a chord with the audience because of its relatable characters and a calming visual aesthetic.

The most awaited Hindi Indian web series that gathered a huge amount of audience. This best web series Hindi features Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in an lead roles. Sacred Games is the first Hindi web series which was uploaded on Netflix and we all binge watched it. The brilliant team of directors Vikramaditya Motwane. Here are some of the best dialogues of Sacred Games that shows how brilliantly writers have done their work.
6.The Family Man
Manoj Bajpayee starer "The Family Man" best hindi web series has been announced for 2 more seasons. The show is an Indian web series filled with drama and suspense. It was premiered on Amazon Prime Video in September 2019. There are reports that suggests the the filming of the season 2 has began on November 2019 and we are all waiting to see the charm of Manoj Bajpayee on screen again.
A violent and aggressive revenge drama series in hindi in the city of Mirzapur became much more than just the gun and power. With an excellent star cast like Ali Fazal, Pankaj Tripathi, Vikrant massey and Divyendu Sharma. This Indian show has been loved by the audience and also is prepping for its season 2.
This TVF series starring Jeetendra Kumar had a simple premise, and as we have often seen in the world of web content, it is usually simplicity that wins the day. The show’s uncomplicated nature introduced us to characters who were extremely likeable. The best part about Panchayat was its strong casting supported by Raghubir Yadav, Neena Gupta and Chandan Roy. The show released during the lockdown and its content left the audience feeling a little warm and fuzzy.
Streaming on Sony LIV, Gullak follows the story of a middle class Indian family that’s dealing with its day-to-day issues. The first season of the show was applauded for its understanding of the characters it portrayed and so, the show was renewed for a second season as well. The second season released earlier in 2021.
Permanent Roommates is undoubtedly quite popular among the youth. It is a comedy drama show which is favourite among the younger generation. It stars Sumit Vyas and Nidhi Singh, in terms of writing, acting skills and direction this web series has excelled in all the sectors.
This Jaideep Ahlawat-led series is another crime drama on the list, but Paatal Lok deserves a spot here. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in her review, “Paatal Lok is fashioned as a crime thriller-cum-police procedural set mainly in Delhi, spinning off into several threads, some really solid, a few comparatively weak, but managing to keep its hold on us. Weaving in an awareness and recognition of contemporary India makes it political, and elevates it: Paatal Lok is intelligently written, fast-paced, and engrossing, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
12.Asur: Welcome to Your Dark Side
Asur, which combined the genres of mythological fiction and thriller, revelled in its larger-than-life theories, but its grandness wasn’t communicated well enough. Asur also faltered when it came to tying up loose ends by the end of the season.
Created by Neeraj Pandey, Special Ops started in a promising manner and largely stuck to the promise. Kay Kay Menon fit right into Himmat’s part and was easily the show-stealer here. The only con here, in my opinion, was the fact that the stakes were never just high enough for us to be concerned about the good guys in the finale.
This Sushmita Sen-led series just did not waste any time in building up to the premise. Soon after the first episode began, it was obvious that Aarya was going to be a binge-worthy ride and it proved to be so with every episode that rolled out after. The layered characterisation, Sushmita Sen’s screen presence and the smart use of old Hindi film music also helped Aarya’s cause.
TVF Tripling is an Indian Hindi-language web series created by The Viral Fever. It was developed by Sameer Saxena and written by Akarsh Khurana and Sumeet Vyas. The series star Vyas in the lead role along with Maanvi Gagroo and Amol Parashar, along with Kunaal Roy Kapur, Nidhi Bisht, Kumud Mishra, and Shernaz Patel.
