April has been a difficult month for India. Covid-19 is killing innocent citizens, cinemas have (again) closed, roads are (again) empty, there’s nowhere left to go (again). While the government is pulling off a mass genocide under the guise of incompetence, some of us fortunate enough to stay indoors have further retreated into our OTT-watching shells.

The Oscars are around the corner, but it doesn’t feel like it. Here’s a list of titles that Rahul Desai, our contributing critic, has managed to watch (and re-watch) this month. The good ones are in bold:
