Issue #2

In this month’s edition of the Boundless Binge, we recommend some of the finest, darkest, most honest comedies we’ve seen in the recent past, so you don’t have to spend two hours every night just browsing and figuring out what to watch.

I May Destroy You

One Line Summary: After being sexually assaulted in a nightclub, Arabella’s life changes irreversibly and she is forced to reassess everything, including her career, friends and family.

Genre: Drama, Dark Comedy

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of Michaela Coel’s breakaway hit show, I May Destroy You. Lauded around…


Prose Poetry

The first time I say I don’t want to have kids, I’m dismissed. You’ll grow up, things will change, wait until you meet the right person.

When I meet the right person, and I say I don’t want to have kids, I’m dismissed. This is a honeymoon phase. Wait until you get bored of each other. Wait until the hormones kick in.

When my friends start to have kids, and I say I don’t want to have kids, I’m dismissed. When are you going to start planning? It’s easier when you’re younger. …

What are you watching this pandemic?

With every digital platform buying, releasing and promoting enough films and series to keep you glued to the screen for three-quarters of a lifetime, give or take, what is it that you choose to watch when you want to wind down — after a gruelling workday of sitting in bed and staring at your computer screen?

Are action adventures your go-to before hitting the sack? Maybe a heart-warming drama? Or a romantic comedy that brings a smile to your face? Thrillers make time fly by and the classics are timeless. Documentaries are fascinating, sure…

At first, you ignore it. Then you label it a ‘them’ problem. They should have known better, acted sooner. You move on with your life. You only start to really pay attention when London and New York get affected. Not unlike terrorist attacks, lives seem to matter more in some places. Could this happen to you?

You look around you. People don’t seem to be taking this seriously yet. How could they shut down or control a country like yours anyway? No one follows rules. We don’t have the infrastructure or resources to deal with a health crisis. We’re ungovernable…

Clock ticking.
the seconds
pass noisily
as we come
to a total
standstill

look away
from my screen
look out
of my window
shut my eyes

look in
breathe.
stare.
(like it’s
the first time)

the real 21 day challenge-
can you
keep your
mind still?

it’s spreading!
cause/
effect/correlation
who’s to say?
we amplify
the noise
leading to panic
leaders fumble
markets crash
borders shut
wash your hands!
stay in!
#canceleverything
can we just
breathe (with a mask?)
let the experts speak.


You got what you wanted.

You’ve been fetishizing about taking time off to focus on yourself, self-care, #cancellingplans and staying in. You can finally use all those new-age candles you’ve been stocking up on.

So why are you freaked out?

You’re not sure why you feel this insane urge to fill your time or what to do with your now empty calendar, now that social distancing is the new ‘I’m so busy’.

Your social media is filled with people reminiscing about fabulous trips they took last month, given they’re stuck at home. …


There’s never been a better time to be a storyteller.

And yet- why aren’t we seeing more groundbreaking shows and films- when there seem to be so many media buyers and sellers?

The digital content ecosystem has exploded in India. Heavyweight TV and film players- Dharma Production, Zee Entertainment and Sony to name a few- have launched digital houses. International houses like Amazon, Netflix and Disney have set up shop and are scaling quickly in India. Both these powerful players have announced that India is their no.1 priority market. That’s a big statement.

On the other hand, not only do…
