10 new movies and shows to watch on OTT platforms in March

Join the club if you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms now that Euphoria Season 2 is over. Now we need a new one. Wondering what to watch next? As always, we’re here to give you some recommendations. From sci-fi thrillers to fictional period dramas, here are all the exciting new movies and shows hitting OTT platforms in March!

1. The Adam Project

Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Garner, Zoe Saldaña – while these actors have played characters in the MCU, it’s not a Marvel movie that brings them together. This is Shawn Levy’s latest sci-fi adventure The Adam Project. Honestly, I’m already convinced to watch this movie just based on the cast and the filmmaker. Also, the title and trailer are rather intriguing. The parcel? After crash landing in 2022, time-traveling fighter pilot Adam Reed (Reynolds) teams up with his 12-year-old self (played by Braxton Bjerknes) on a mission to save the future. Garner and Ruffalo play Ellie and Louis Reed, Adam’s parents.

2. Bridgerton Season 2

Get ready for another season of steamy romantic scenes, charming characters and glamorous vintage silhouettes from Regency era London! Based on the bestseller Bridgerton Julia Quinn novels, season two is set to return this month. Even if it sucks a little that Regé-Jean Page is not there in the second installment, we will watch the show independently. Indian-born actors Simone Ashley and Charithra Chandran join the show as sisters Sharma, Kate and Edwina this season. While the first season focused on Daphne Bridgerton and her relationship with Duke Simon Basset, the following season follows the love triangle between Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and sisters Edwina (Charithra Chandran) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley). It sounds outrageous, but then again, what is Bridgerton without all that drama? We’re excited to see the turn of events in this one for sure!

Marvel has spared no effort to entertain its fans for about a year with its new releases on OTT platforms. After Wanda Vision, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawk Eye, moon knight is the next Marvel series to hit the small screen. What makes it exciting is the simple fact that we discover a new character (played by Oscar Isaac) with a super gripping story.

5. jalsa

Two Powers Vidya Balan and Shefali Shah come together in Jalsa. Known for its unconventional choices, this one is no different and follows an engaging story. The film revolves around the murder of a young girl and a news channel investigating it. While Shefali Shah plays the victim’s mother who refuses to give up on her daughter, Vidya plays a journalist who delves into the story. Contrary to its title, which signifies a celebration of gatherings, jalsa plays on irony by exploring the flaws in institutions such as law enforcement, the judiciary and the media.

6. Eternally confused and hungry for love

If your relationship status is currently single and you are looking for relevant content, take a break from the silly reality shows and watch Eternally confused and hungry for love. Considering it’s produced by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti’s Tiger Baby Films and Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment for Netflix, we’re expecting great dialogue and outstanding performances from the cast with Vihaan Samat, Rahul Bose , Suchitra Pillai, Jim Sarbh, Ankur Rathee and Dala among others. The parcel? Guided by an imaginary wizard, a clumsy and lonely twenty-something Ray (Vihaan) struggles to go out of his own way in his quest to find a girlfriend – a familiar concept but portrayed in a new take. which definitely piqued our interest.

Inspired by real events, WeCrashed follows the rise and fall of one of the world’s most valuable start-ups, aka WeWork. The coworking space becomes a global brand worth $47 billion in less than a decade. Then, in less than a year, its valuation plummeted.

8. Bargain

You saw Lily Collins play the enterprising and fashionable Emily on Emily in Paris. Now watch her in a thriller with actors Jason Segel and Jesse Plemons. In Bargain, a man (Jason) breaks into a tech billionaire’s empty vacation home, but things go awry when the cocky tycoon (Jesse) and his wife (Lily) arrive for a last-minute getaway – the interesting plotline certainly caught our attention.

9. Cheaper by the dozen

One of my favorite childhood movies is getting a remake! Cheaper by the dozen set to release this month with an all-new cast. The original film was released in 1950, which was rebooted in 2003. And now we get to witness family chaos and comedy once again. The 2022 release of Cheaper by the dozen takes you on a roller coaster ride of a multiracial family of 12, where two parents live with their many children from previous marriages while trying to run their family business in New Jersey. We are seeing a trend of remakes with classic shows and movies, but not all reboots are the best. However, the trailer for this movie looks quite fun and makes a solid argument for a movie to watch as a family over a weekend.

ten. turn red

It’s kind of refreshing to see animated movies bring diversity through their characters. Another coming-of-age film that proves this point is Pixar’s Turning Red. It follows the life of Mei Lee (Rosalie Chiang), a dopey thirteen-year-old Chinese-Canadian girl, who instantly transforms into a giant red panda whenever she gets excited. The film is set in the early 2000s in Toronto, Canada, which also shows the city’s multicultural vibe, whether through Mei or her Indo-Canadian friend Priya (voiced by I have never Maitreyi Ramakrishnan). Turning Red is a landmark animated feature because it’s not only the first Pixar film with a Chinese character, but also the first to be set in Canada and the first directed solely by a woman.
