Telling the story of a teenage rape case, this is a haunting movie. Another reason to watch this brilliant movie is the fact that this was the last movie of legendary bollywood actress, Sridevi, which also won her the National Award for best actress.
When Aamir Khan directs and acts in a movie, we know it has to be a winner, right? Do we even need to tell you why it’s a must watch?
Irrfan Khan gives (yet another) a heart winning performance as a Delhi middle class man struggling to adjust to the higher middle class of Delhi. His performance, as a husband and as a father to a daughter whom he wants to educate in a good English Medium school, is a must watch.
The Ghazi Attack
Based on the 1971 war, where Pakistan had sent its most advanced submarine, PNS Ghazi, to attack India’s warship INS Vikrant, this real-life inspired story tells how an Indian Naval submarine, S21, thwarted Pakistan’s planned naval attack.
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion
We finally got the answer to a question which gave us many sleepless nights! “Why Katappa Killed Bahubali?” was answered grandly and memorably in this Opus Magnum.
Bareilly Ki Barfi
A light comedy which can be enjoyed by people of all ages, this one is a must watch for all! My favorite, Rajkumar Rao!
The movie which became our ‘almost’ official entry into the Oscars that year, Newton needs to be watched to understand and appreciate how one person’s stubbornness can bring about a change in the way our system works.
A must watch for those who love the suspense and thriller genres and feel like Bollywood doesn’t churn out good ones in this category.
Sachin: A Billion Dreams
Need I even say why?
This one went undeservedly unnoticed!
An Insignificant Man
A documentary around Arvind Kejriwal, this one is a must watch to understand how AAP came to be and why it went off its ideological route.
A man gets trapped inside the flat of an abandoned building in Mumbai making us wonder how this easily ‘could be’ our story.
Water crisis and droughts are upon us and yet we willfully ignore them. Watch this one to understand why we need to take the problem of global warming more seriously!
A Death in The Gunj
Konkona Sen dons the hat of a director with this one, and we’re impressed at how she can be brilliant both on and off the screen!
Produced by PeeCee, this movie tells the story of three Nepali kids who get separated from their parents while entering India.
This story, of a young aspiring boxer from Uttar Pradesh, was relatable for more than one reason!
