While the week might have only just started, the feeling of the Monday blues can really bring us down. What also adds to the stress is the time that we ‘work from home’ along with the numerous lockdown restrictions that make stay indoors. While these tough times seem far from over, we can always switch to some light-hearted comedies and musicals to help you unwind. So, just like us, if you too are in a mood to unwind, Amazon Prime Video comes to the rescue and presents you the perfect streaming guide to binge-watch.

If you are a fan of stand-up comedies, head to Amazon Prime Video and watch Comicstaan Semma Comedy Pa.

If dark-themed thriller shows aren’t for you, then Amazon Original Series Bandish Bandits is your go-to show. A musical drama, Bandish Bandits, takes us in the life of Radhe (Ritwik Bhowmik) and Tamanna (Shreya Chaudhary), who come from different ends of the music spectrum.

Not only will the show keep you hooked, but Shankar Ehsan Loy’s fantastic soundtrack will also make you sing and dance along in merriment.
Wakaalat From Home
Joining the bandwagon last week, Amazon Prime Video’s Wakaalat From Home is the most relatable show in the present times. The 10-episode series shot completely during the lockdown on a zoom call, stars Sumeet Vyas, Nidhi Singh, Kubbra Sait, and Gopal Datt in prominent roles. The show takes us into the lives of a married couple, played by Sujin (Sumeet) and Radhika (Nidhi), who have filed for a divorce and are forced to fight the case on zoom calls. The show is a hilarious take on how people have adapted to the new normal. From working from home and virtual meetings, the series will remind you of the initial days of lockdown when life came to a standstill.
The Office (US)
From Michael Scott’s classic one-liners to Jim and Pam’s heartwarming love story, and of course, the classic Dwight and Jim rivalry, there are a number of reasons why this show should be on your list. Even though this workplace comedy will make you miss your colleagues a lot more, this show will make you go ROFL till happy tears start rolling down your cheeks. Available on Amazon Prime Video, stream the show endlessly and laugh your heart out.
The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel
Set in the 1950s, The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel is a hit among millennials. The show has won 8 Emmy awards and has an absolutely unique and refreshing story. The show is about a woman who accidentally becomes a stand-up comic. That premise in itself makes it a situational comedy like no other. And because her journey is unexpected, it is raw, real, and relatable.
