Amazon Prime Videos would also premiere the Will Smith-starrer 'Bad Boys for Life' which deals with the story of Miami detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett who  face off against a mother-and-son pair of drug lords who wreak vengeful havoc on their city.

Of course, if there is a sense of nostalgia around Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput who bid adieu to us in 2020, you could catch 'Shudh Desi Romance', Raabta and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy on Netflix or shift to Netflix to watch his latest film 'Drive' or his debut movie 'Kai Po Che'.
