1. Laila Majnu
Everybody knows the popular, renowned love story of Laila Majnu. And now, with its modernized remake, Imtiaz Ali and Ekta Kapoor, the producers have brought the movie to our nearest theatres. Imtiaz Ali, while explaining the idea of the movie said that we generally say, he is madly in love and this is what they have tried to explore in the movie, the madness of love. He also said that every other person who believes the madness of love should watch it. It is directed by Imtiaz’s brother Sajid Ali and is written by both, Sajid and Imtiaz together. With the new star cast of Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri, the movie is in theatres now and it is a must watch. The lead actors have done justice to the script. It is not just a fluffy, romantic movie but a tragic lovelorn tale.
J.P. Dutta is best known for his patriotic action war films like Border, Refugee and LOC Kargil. But after more than a decade, he has brought another film of the same kind, Paltan, completing his trilogy of Bollywood War Dramas. The movie, Paltan is based on the Indo-China war at the Sikkim border in 1967 which apparently India won but is not celebrated as much. The movie has a stellar ensemble cast with Arjun Rampal, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood, Harshvardhan Rane and Gurmeet Chaudhary in the lead roles. The movie aims to bring to light the untold story of one of India’s greatest victory at the border which also redeemed Indians of the 1962 Sino-Indian war which was a huge loss for the Indian army and the citizens.
3. Gali Guleiyan
After his remarkable performance in thriller movies like Naam Shabana, Missing etc. Manoj Bajpayee has delivered another psychological thrilling performance in a movie called, Gali Guleiyan, directed by Dipesh Jain. In the movie, Manoj Bajpayee plays a role of an isolated paranoid man, exploring the darkness of the human mind in the movie. He said that it is one of the most difficult characters he has ever played in his entire career. And we are sure, like his other movies, this would be another one worth watching. Go and watch it, if you love dark cinema and Manoj Bajpayee.
You probably haven’t heard of the movie until now for it is not an out and out commercial film. On the lines of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, this movie also refuses to relent to public defecation. And this time, it is an eight-year-old slum dweller who dared to dream of building a private toilet for himself. Now, many of us do not even consider it a right, but the ones who are denied such a trivial natural thing, it becomes important to fight for one’s individuality and dignity. The movie stars Ranvir Shorey, Kumud Mishra, Paoli Dam and Tathastu in the lead roles and the music of the movie is composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Directed by an Odia National Award Winner Nila Madhab Panda, this movie has gone on to win many hearts at 18 international film festivals across the globe and it will win yours too.
