“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get,” said Forrest Gump. If the month of June was a box that saw us put our hand to select what shows to watch, we’d certainly have our hands filled with some absolute treats. Audiences are well and truly spoilt for choice in June as there are some absolute blockbusters in store with the likes of The Boys Season 4, House of the Dragon: Season 2, and Bridgerton Season 3 along with other highly-anticipated titles. 

Bridgerton Season 3, Part Two

Having delighted audiences with that steamy carriage kissing session between Penelope and Colin, we certainly can’t wait to see if Part 2 of Season 3 matches or even surpasses all our expectations. What new secrets and skeletons are yet to come out of the closet? The excitement increases as we inch closer to a date with the Bridgertons and Featheringtons with every passing day. While we’re waiting to see the friendship-turned-romance between Penelope and Colin bloom, we’re also eager to see if the latter discovers Penelope’s identity as the gossip writer Lady Whistledown. With just four remaining episodes to drop, this revelation is sure to arrive at some point in the show. We just hope things remain the same between the two when it does. 

Release date: June 13

The Boys Season 4

The Boys is nothing like a show about superheroes saving the day. It’s the complete opposite as superheroes, who enjoy a celebrity and god-like status, use their powers for bad rather than good. Enter The Boys, a group of vigilantes who try their best to expose them and Vought—the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that controls the superheroes and covers up all their dark and dirty secrets. Based on the events of the previous season, the fourth season will see the team targeting Victoria Neuman, who has become Vice President of the United States. With the show set right in the midst of the Presidential elections, having a superhero in the White House who can kill anyone in seconds is sure to be an issue for both Vought and The Boys. She however, is under the thumb of Homelander, who has become even more dangerous as he consolidates his power. Butcher, his arch-nemesis on the other hand, and leader of The Boys, has only months to live and sees the rest of the team fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late. The Boys will premiere its fourth season on June 13 with three episodes, followed by a new episode each week, ending with the epic season finale on Thursday, July 18.

The year is 1862, a time when there were only three universities in India, and the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 continues to fan the flames of independence. Against all odds, one man takes a courageous stand in a landmark legal battle, a true story that’s now come to light in Maharaj—more than 160 years later. Karsandas Mulji, a journalist and social reformer, was a pioneering advocate for women’s rights and social reform. A student at Elphinstone College in Mumbai and a protégé of the scholar-leader Dadabhai Naoroji, he wrote on widow remarriage, stood up for the oppressed, and sowed the seeds of reform in society. It all came to a head in the Maharaj Libel Case of 1862, which was ignited by allegations of misconduct by a prominent figure, the case garnered widespread attention and scrutiny, setting the stage for what many consider to be one of the most significant legal battles of all time.

Based on the libel case, the film introduces audiences to Junaid Khan, Aamir Khan’s son in his acting debut. Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Maharaj also stars Jaideep Ahlawat, Shalini Pandey, and a special appearance by Sharvari.

House of the Dragon Season 2


The dance of the dragons (a civil war in House Targaryan) begins as two children of King Viserys Targaryen go head to head against each other as they stake claim to sit on the Iron Throne. On one side we have the Greens—led by King Aegon II, the newly crowned king, and his mother Alicent Hightower, and on the other side is the Blacks with Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen and her uncle-husband Daemon Targaryen at the helm of affairs. There will be no time for peace as the Season 1 finale culminated with the Aemond (Aegon II’s brother) and his dragon Vhagar killing Lucerys Velaryon (Rhaenyra’s son). The stakes are raised in the second season with both sides preparing for all-out war. Brothers will fight brothers and dragons will fight dragons. Who will be the last Targaryan standing? We can’t wait to find out.
