As far as the most entertaining OTT shows of the year are concerned, we have the best saved for the last month of the year. There's the most-awaited musical of 2023, The Archies; the second part of The Crown Season 6 that will be a fitting end to the hit show on the royal family; and Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday, and Adarsh Gourav-starrer coming-of-age drama, among many others.
Set in ’60s India, in a fictional town called Riverdale, The Archies is a coming-of-age film following the lives of the town’s favourite set of teenagers—Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Reggie, Ethel, and Dilton. Seen through the lens of the unique Anglo-Indian community, The Archies explores friendship, freedom, love, heartbreak, and rebellion. The film marks the debut of Suhana Khan (King Khan's daughter), Agastya Nanda (Amitabh Bachchan's grandson), and Khushi Kapoor (daughter of legendary actor Sridevi). Along with this talented trio, the movie also stars Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Vedang Raina, and Yuvraj Menda. If you're wondering if you should watch it, we'd say you read about what we liked about trailer.
