Top Ott Releases This Week: Atlas, Crew, The Kardashians Season 5 and More

While last week was big on ott releases in the form of Bridgerton Season 3 Part 1 dropping in, the pool seems a bit shallow this time, making the perfect room for the third season of TVF's highly anticipated series Panchayat, which follows the story of the newly elected Panchayat secretary of a remote village. With the second season's cliffhanger of a finale, the excitement among the followers of the series is broiling up each day.

Except for Jennifer Lopez's sci-fi Atlas on Netflix, there doesn't seem to be any major originals hitting the screens. The film revolves around AI terrorism and relies on Lopez's character to save the world.
Another notable release is the fifth season of The Kardashians, which follows the dramatic lives of internet celebrities Kris, Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie Jenner. Although there are no Indian originals this week, we have two big post-theatrical releases in the form of Tabu's comedy thriller Crew on Netflix and Randeep Hooda's political biography Swatantrata Veer Savarkar on Zee5.

If you are in the mood to binge something unconventional, we recommend going for the two new animes dropping on Netflix this week - Garouden: The Way of the Lone Wolf, and My Oni Girl. While the former is heavily violence-driven in which a former criminal is blackmailed into participation in an illegal martial arts tournament, My Oni Girl follows the unusual friendship between a young boy, who struggles to make friends, and an oni (demon) girl, who is searching her mother.

Even though the film is slightly entertaining, it follows predictable story arcs and is not for ardent fans of the genre.
