Streaming platforms are notorious for their lack of transparency, allowing them to quote numbers that are tough to verify. Ormax Media, a media consulting firm, has began tracking viewership figures of the top releases across major platforms.
Here’s a list of the most-viewed Hindi shows and movies from the Indian streaming space during the week of December 7th, 2020 – December 13th, 2020. The numbers are all estimates based only within India.
1) Pati Patni Aur Panga- MX Player
Views (Million): 3.4
Note that this show released on December 11 and so reflects numbers only since then. Starring Adah Sharma and Naveen Kasturia, this is a love story where the man demands a divorce after finding out the woman he married was born a man.
2) Naxalbari- Zee5
Views (Million): 2.2
This is a story of the Naxal rebellion between Kranti and Capitalism, starring Rajeev Khandelwal, Tina Datta, Sreejita Dey, and Satyadeep Mishra.
3)Aashram Chapter 2: The Dark Side – MX Player
Views (Million): 1.9
The second chapter of the Bobby Deol-starrer, directed by Prakash Jha topping this list is no surprise, because the first chapter that dropped in August this year has been consistently showing up on this list. Deol plays the conman-godman, a sinister figure in this 9 part series that also stars Chandan Roy Sanyal and Anupriya Goenka among others. It must be noted that MX Player is a free-of-cost streaming platform.
