Being stuck at home for indefinite time has turned our attention to movies on Netflix like Lift boy and Axone. Axone especially, due to its layered diversity of two parts of India, North and Northeast has gained many accolades among the audience. From the realistic storyline within the dingy streets of Delhi neighborhood where hundreds of north-easterners seek refuge to the casual and often threatening racial discrimination that they are exposed on a daily basis is pretty eye-opening as well as entertaining.
