6. Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain
Though audiences these days have been warming up to cinema which was conventionally called ‘Art House Cinema’, there are still times when some movies do not fare well at the box office and go unnoticed but that doesn’t mean the movie was not up to the mark. One of these movies is Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain starring Sanjay Mishra, Pankaj Tripathi among others. The movie talks about three couples with a very distinct viewpoint about love and its expression. Watch it and you wouldn’t regret.
Irrfan Khan is one of the most talented actors we have in Bollywood. With the kind of different roles he has played in his career, it is hard for any Bollywood fan to not enjoy his thread of work.

The latest to be added to the list of 2018 Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime is Race 3. The Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Saqib Salim, Daisy Shah and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer action-packed thriller and drama was a disaster and its trailer itself was enough to invite the trolls.

The movie just like the past 3 movies of the franchise is a revenge thriller directed by Vishal Pandya. The movie could not impress the critics but the album of the movie was received well by the audiences. Watch it for the lead actors’ skin show and a whole lot of chaotic mess.
11. Pari: Not a Fairytale
Anushka Sharma’s Pari: Not a Fairytale is an Indian supernatural horror film which released earlier this year. The movie is a bit different from all the horror movies (except Ram Gopal Varma’s Bhoot) ever attempted in Bollywood as it is actually scary.
