But not all these smashing cinema perceived a kind of spotlight they deserved. Here are 10 such Bollywood films that merit some-more accolades:


Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Shweta TripathiNawazuddin Siddiqui, Shweta Tripathi Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripathi in a still from Haraamkhor.

Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripathi in a lead, and destined by Shlok Sharma, Haraamkhor was a play that was told with unknown trust and authenticity. A story during once relocating and devastating, Haraamkhor was a story that indispensable to be told. In a movie, Nawazuddin plays a propagandize clergyman called Shyam who falls for his underage tyro Sandhya, played to soundness by Shweta Tripathi. The film is about child molestation, agree and love. Criminally under-rated.

Anaarkali of Arrah

What do we get when we put Swara Bhaskar, Sanjay Mishra and Pankaj Tripathi together in a movie? Sheer luminosity is a answer. Anaarkali of Arrah is severe around a edges, it is raw, it is lovely. Swara plays a suggested impression whose agree in a film doesn’t matter to Sanjay Mishra’s character.

Anaarkali of Arrah is primarily about a lady and her choices. Anaarkali is an amorous dancer, who always wanted to be an amorous dancer, and she doesn’t let we feel contemptible for her for even a fragment of a second via a movie. She speaks her mind, and needs no helper, nonetheless finds a support in Pankaj Tripathi’s aptly-named impression Rangeela. A finish fun to watch.

Poorna: Courage has no limit

Rahul Bose and Aditi Inamdar are a provide to watch in a biographical play Poorna: Courage has no limit. Aditi stars as Poorna Malavath, who hails from a genealogical family in Telangana, and who eventually becomes a youngest lady to scale Mount Everest. Directed by Rahul Bose, Poorna is a story of courage, hardships and wish that hits we right in a feels.

Meri Pyaari Bindu

Yes, a film didn’t transport good during a box office. And to be honest, it is not that surprising. Subtlety and Bollywood are not a best of friends after all. Meri Pyaari Bindu facilities Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra as a integrate of quick friends who tumble in and out of adore with any other. Parineeti’s impression competence not have been fleshed out good enough, though it still managed to light adult a screen, interjection to her chemistry with Ayushmann. Worth a watch. Also, good songs.

Tu Hai Mera Sunday

Sundays are for relaxing, for holding a break, for indulging yourself. Milind Dhaimade’s Tu Hai Mera Sunday is a jaunty regretful comedy that aims to pull a bounds of a genre by perplexing to execute a daily struggles of a categorical cast–Barun Sobti, Shahana Goswami, Avinash Tiwari, Rasika Dugal, Maanvi Gagroo, and Vishal Malhotra–as authentically as possible. Sweet, endearing and only a kind of Sunday film we would wish to locate on that one off day.

A Death in a Gunj

Konkana Sen Sharma’s directorial entrance boasts of names like Ranvir Shorey, Om Puri, Tanuja, Kalki Koechlin, and Tillotama Shome. But a star of this relocating play is Vikrant Massey, who plays a protagonist Shutu with smashing vulnerability. A Death in a Gunj is a dim play about love, detriment and depression. This one will make we introspect prolonged and tough about all of a three, and more.


A still from Chef

An central Hindi reconstitute of a Hollywood crack of a same name, Chef stars Saif Ali Khan, Padmapriya Janakiraman and Svar Kamble. Though a tract of a film is identical to that of a American movie, a Saif Ali-starrer also manages to move in a father-son attribute angle to a story, so giving it an roughly new franchise of life. Chef is for anyone who gives dual cents about food and relationships.

Mukti Bhawan

Directed and co-written by Shubhashish Bhutiani and starring Adil Hussain and Lalit Behl, Mukti Bhawan is about an aged male who believes his time has come and wants to breathe his final in a holy city of Varanasi. He asks his son to take him there, though a whole tour takes a new tinge when a son decides to accompany his father on this engaging trip. Does a son leave behind his pursuit and other responsibilities and gives all of his time to his aged man? A touching story that deserves some-more audience.


Rajkummar Rao shines in Vikramaditya Motwane’s dirty crack about presence and hope. A male is roughly driven to stupidity after he gets trapped in a high-rise. Rajkummar as a trapped male leaves we with an worried feeling, as if we are a one experiencing all a discomfort, and mind you, a word ‘discomfort’ is used softly here.

Qarib Qarib Singlle

Parvathy in a still from Qarib Qarib Singlle.

Malayalam star Parvathy done her Bollywood entrance recently with a able Tanuja Chandra as her director, and a gifted Irrfan Khan as her heading man. The actors are good cast; a story is that of a integrate who learn adore by a dating site, though in a demeanour that is mostly radical and sweet. The film is a noted regretful play that leaves we with a feeling equal to that of regard of sweeping on a cold night.
