While there have been many relaxations in the coronavirus-induced lockdown, it would be a while before things go back to normal or a new normal.
The new normal refers to a world in which many things we do may change for good even if the lockdown is completely lifted. For instance, we are now more careful about human contact and the surfaces we touch. Even our movie-viewing habits have changed due to the outbreak. Wish to know how?
When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death. Parents need to know that Knives Out is a delightful all-star murder-mystery comedy that's reminiscent of Agatha Christie stories. Violence includes a murder victim with a slit throat and a trickle of blood, fighting (punching and slapping), arguing, and harsh dialogue.

Steven Soderbergh directorial Contagion was about the spread of a virus which causes a dangerous disease, the attempts by medical experts and authorities to contain it, and the subsequent social disarray. Sounds familiar? The movie shares other uncanny similarities as well. It is not too big a surprise that Contagion, released in 2011, was the most-watched movie after the outbreak. Before it, Contagion was just a critically-acclaimed pandemic movie most had forgotten.A still from Cantagion (Photo: Warner Bros)
2. Parasite: Amazon Prime Video
In her review of Bong Joon Ho’s Oscar-winning movie Parasite, The Indian Express film critic Shalini Langer wrote, “Parasite is a subtle and subversive depiction of class. The setting is Korean, and Ho brings out that country’s obsession with America, English, North Korea and aspirations succinctly. But in depicting the many layers that divide, and blind, the rich from the poor, the poor from the rich, men from women, and husbands from wives, Parasite is universal. And very, very unsettling.” Parasite was at the top of the most-watched movies list before the outbreak.
3. Knives Out: YouTube and Google Play
Rian Johnson’s murder-mystery Knives Out would have made Agatha Christie proud, and there cannot be any better praise about the film than this. This whodunit was proof that there can still be whodunits that are a little more than shallow duplicates of what has already been done before. The payoff of the mysteries piling over mysteries was shocking, and the film made moviegoers laugh all the way through. Knives Out was at the fifth position before the outbreak.Joaquin Phoenix in a still from Joker. (Photo: Warner Bros)

4. Joker: Amazon Prime Video
A comic-book film that had little to do with comics, Joker was the origin story of the popular Batman villain. The supreme, extremely physical performance by Joaquin Phoenix as the titular character and exquisite camera work by Lawrence Sher buried any shortcomings the film might have had. Joker was the second most-watched movie before the coronavirus outbreak.
5. Chhapaak: Disney+ Hotstar
