Unconventional Movies Of 2017 Which Struck A Chord With The Cinephiles

Published on 14 January, 2018 at 1:00 pm By

We Indians are a nation of cinema lovers. Dialogues like “Haar kar jitney waale ko hi baazigar kehten hai” and many more which we use in everyday conversations is proof of our love towards cinema. Over the last few years, things have and are changing for the better and the art of storytelling has slowly transformed from cliched romance and action to fresh perspectives and stories. 2017 was one such year that gave us many such coming of age movies.

Here’s a look at them:

1. Newton

If you aren’t already a fan of Rajkumar Rao then this one would be a good start to make you start singing his praises. Circling around the life of Nutan Kumar, a government clerk put on election duty and adamant on making it a free and fair one, this one throws light on issues related to elections and politics that conflict areas undergo.

2. A Death in The Gunj

KonkanaSen does equally if not better in her directorial debut as she did with her acting skills and career.

3. Anaarkali of Aarah

You put Swara Bhaskar in a movie and it is rarely a bad one. In this one, she plays the role of a small town folk dancer, albeit an erotic one. The movie takes her through her journey of life as a dancer, the emotions and struggles she goes through and how she handles an unpleasant and disrespectful incident with utmost courage.

4. Trapped

Life goes on around you, with or without you. That’s what this movie best portrays. Another gem of a movie starring Rajkumar Rao which tells a survival story (finally Bollywood does this!) we are all afraid of going through.

5. Irada



Issues that are glaring and are yet not being addressed are right in the face in this movie. All ecological issues like uranium poisoning, reverse boring, fertilizer poisoning and their impact on the lives of people are packed in a thrilling and action packed movie here!

6. Running Shaadi

A rom com with a difference wherein people who want to elope and get married are provided support!

7. Haraamkhor

A teacher student romance isn’t unheard of but the brilliant portrayal of raw romance, stellar acting, bang on direction and fresh humour makes this movie a must watch. Also, it has Nawazuddin!

8. Qarib Qarib Singlle

Where there is Irrfan there is dry sense of humour and this one has it in abundance, that too with a great story.

9. Secret Superstar

This will be your source of many laughs and a little bit of tears. Of course the plus side is that it has good music and acting packaged into a great story.

10. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan

A humorous take on a topic like erectile dysfunction (yes, they really made a movie on that!!) this one broke many stereotypes and spoke on a topic which we as progressive Indians still avert eyes and mouths from.

11. Hindi Medium

English language and English speaking abilities are so overrated and hyped in our country that we want nothing but English medium education for our kids. This movie threw light on the hypocrisy around this issue and the lengths to which parents can go for ensuring that their child gets higher standard education.
