1. Shor Se Shuruaat
Sanjay Mishra, Sakshi Tanwar, Rashika Duggal, Atul Kulkarni, Vijay Maurya. Do I need to take more names to make you excited about this gem? Well, I don’t think so. the film is an anthology of seven short films wound in one bouquet, which talks about people who are trying to deal with their daily life issues. The films of this collection are new, are comprehensive, and communicating in their own ways with brilliant acting performances from all the artists we had named in the beginning.
2. Road to Sangam
Road to Sangam, precisely a very simple story but with a very impactful narrative. Hasmat, as played by Paresh Rawal, is a Muslim Man assigned with the task of repairing the lorry for the transportation of Mahatma Gandhi’s Ashes. With his communal clashes putting him in dilemma, Road to Sangam derives a strong and natural narrative on the Hindu-Muslim divide.
Nandita Das’s Directorial Debut, Firaaq which has some of the most liked actors of the independent cinema, including Naseeruddin Shah and Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a worth watching performance. Based on the 2002’s Gujarat riots, the film shows the pain and how the riots affected people.
4. Ankhon Dekhi
Again, with the phenomenal Sanjay Mishra, with Seema Pahwa and Namit Das as a bonus, Ankhon Dekhi is about a story of a daughter whose bauji resists her marrying the man she loves. Yet on meeting her lover, his opinion changes as he decided to have an unbiased eye for all.
5. Rough Book
Based on the real instance of the experience of parents, teachers, and students, the story is about Santoshi Kumari who has been in a divorce case with a senior revenue service officer who is corrupt. She becomes a Physics Teacher with children who are in D division, who are considered to be Duffers. The film is about how Santoshi tackles these children and is a critical narrative of Indian classrooms.
