Random apps not working when connected to wifi works fine when connected via mobile data

Hey everyone i own a simple setup with a modem and a router 

Sometime ago after hearing about Cloudflare DNS and its features i decided to use their app in my phone and everything worked fine 

Now when i needed to use a separate vpn i googled how to make that dns default in the router and made it everything worked fine until one day i decided to watch some netflix in my Mobile phone and strangely it did not load

i own a MI A1 i tested in that device it did not work i checked it in other mobile devices too same issue occurred the other device was OnePlus 5t (both run android pie(stable) idk if this is relevant)  i went through the forums of these devices and noticed no such problems it is to be noted that i did not face any of these issues before i switched to the DNS of cloudflare in my router and modem and thinking that might be causing the issue i reset both my modem and router hoping that would solve the issue but nothing happend 

Anyone know what might be causing the issue

The apps i noticed to not work are


2)Amazon Prime Music


IDK if there are more apps facing the same issue apps like prime video and youtube work just fine 


Please help in finding a solution 


I can attach any document necessary 


Please note i live in India so if you requested anything i might be asleep (blame TimeZones) i will surely give them when i am up

Thanks in advance

For Netflix at least, I've heard they have measures against VPN to block people accessing content that's not available in their own country.
