While the recent release season 2 of Sacred Games has received a mixed response, it still remains one of the great things to come out from the Indian productions of Netflix. It has been nominated alongside the shows like Contra Todos, Bad Banks and McMafia.
With Lust Stories, Netflix unveiled a whole new concept of four different stories directed by different artists under a common theme, which has received a great response from critics and fans alike.
