Directed by Devashish Makhija and all of five minutes long, this one keeps you at the edge of your seat. It stars Nimrat Kaur and Divyendu Sharma in the role of a couple. Packed with a supernatural twist, it sets the mood right from the start.
Sujoy Ghosh’s epic-thriller featuring the legendary Soumitra Chatterjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury and Radhika Apte will give you chills. Watch it for the eerie unfolds, the power-packed performances and Indian society’s notions about a relationship between an old man and a younger woman. This one became a viral sensation the day it released.
Vinay Jaiswal’s Jai Hind is a brilliant take on the value of independence in our country. With oh-so-natural performances by Manoj Bajpayee and Raveena Tandon the film will make you think about the inequality and racism which was prevalent before India got independence.
Aban Bharucha Deohans’s Teaspoon is a thriller based on relationships and everyday emotions. Sree Swara (of Singham Returns fame) and Bomi Dotiwala (from Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.) along with Vaquar Sheikh, together exhibit an amalgamation of human emotions and psychological imbalances in human nature.
Manoj Bajpayee is a one-man show in Devashish Makhija’s Taandav. As a crazy footloose cop, who is caught between morality and breaking free, makes you applaud the actor’s act multiple times. The inclusion of Nucleya’s music, comparatives with Shiva and the family scenario worked well and we aren’t surprised why the movie garnered a million hits on YouTube in less than a month.
Writer-director Navjot Gulati’s short film Best Girlfriend starring Kritika Kamra and Vikrant Massey aims at talking about the things couples hide from each other and what reality holds. Watch it if you look forward to unexpected twists and turns. And if that isn’t reason enough, apparently the film draws from a real-life story.
Set in Rajasthan, the film is an exceptional take on the Karma theory. The kill against kiss attitude, incorporated with the corruption prevailing in the underbelly of Rajasthan has been showed majestically. The best part? We get to see powerhouses Irrfan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui together in this nail-biting tale of survival.
That Day After Everyday
