Movies have always been two types, one type has always submerged themselves to the regular song-dance-drama stuff while the other type has focused on a nice story from which the characters and actors pierced the hearts and souls of the audience. 2018 was way ahead of what was left in 2017 in terms of content. For the last few years, content has really ruled the screens but the final siren was blown this year where the audience have worshipped only content. Thus, it has been a tough year to filter the best. Here are some of the hugely underrated but wonderful Bollywood movies of 2018 which you must watch sometime.

Gali Guleiyan (Director- Dipesh Jain)

You have names like Manoj Bajpayee, Neeraj Kabi, & Ranvir Shorey in this movie. The CV of this movie carries screening in 23 Film Festivals with the premiere at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival. Gali Guleiyan is a psychological drama where it portrays a maze – both physical and mental.

The character of Manoj Bajpayee Khuddoos lives in the narrow lanes of Old Delhi where buildings are just overlapped on each other and the bare spaces are filled up with cable wires. He is a voyeur and a lonely person who fears to step outside but keeps a check on his neighborhood through the CCTV monitor. He wants to help the local butcher’s son Idris and the movie focuses on this journey. Khuddoos is broken and infected irreparably. His mind is a maze of regrets, punishments, and memories and Manoj Bajpayee was outstanding here. But we neither see this movie nor Manoj Bajpayee in interviews or award shows. Another special mention would be Neeraj Kabi – whose piercing eyes would scare you. This man is always on fire – be it Detective Byomkesh Bakshi or Sacred Games!

Bioscopewala (Deb Medhekar)

This is a modern day twisted an adjusted “Kabuliwala”, written by Tagore and enacted by Balraj Sahni & Chhabi Biswas. So, in this adjusted script, Rehmat instead of selling dry fruits from Afghanistan shows films to children through bioscope. The story remains same in befriending Minnie in Kolkata whom he compares to his daughter. Minnie grows up to become a documentary film-maker who has a strange and harsh relationship with his dad. His father takes a flight to Afghanistan and before boarding the flight he writes a letter to Minnie. The flight crashes leaving Minnie to understand and unravel the reason behind going to Afghanistan. The raw, rustic, and senile Rehmat and the friendly and easy-going Rehmat was impeccably portrayed by Danny Denzongpa. He is truly a gem of an actor and Bollywood has wasted & underused him.

Khajoor Pe Atke (Director- Harsh Chhaya)

I included this movie among the best movies of 2018 article and want to voice for it here too. Simply because it is underrated. Bollywood has seen many first time directors (products of full or half nepotism) and either praised or forgot their inventions. But believe me, this one is a perfect family comedy-drama which you would love to watch again and again. It is more on the lines of Hrishikesh Mukherjee School of film-making.

The basic aim of watching a movie is to get entertained and you would get amused in every frame of KPA. Without any nudity, sleazy moves, and double-meaning dialogues, this director has truly shown how to direct a movie. It tells the tale of a family of three brothers, a sister, and their children and family members. One of the brothers fall ill and how they react with middle-class sentiments is all that you would enjoy here.

Once Again (Director- Kanwal Sethi)

Neeraj Kabi & Shefali Shah comes together for a heart-warming and heart-wrenching love story that would make you think twice about the characters you meet daily. Two lonely middle-aged independent persons belonging to two different worlds connect with each other. They are also careful of the so-called society that may taint their characters and thus hides their relationship. The children who are hip and happening also somehow rebukes them. More than the script and story, it was Neeraj Kabi and Shefali Shah who passionately embraced their roles breathing perfection.

3 Storeys (Director- Arjun Mukherjee)

Produced by Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment, I expected better publicity from this one! This is a story of a 3 storey Chawl in Mumbai named Mayanagar. Renuka Shahane plays a Catholic widow who wants to rent a part of her house but cannot find buyers due to strict rules. Varsha played by Masumeh Makhija (of Maqbool fame) is being abused and beaten by an unemployed and alcoholic husband. Leela played by Richa Chadda is a glamorous lady who throws seductive looks to men around the town. These characters living in 3 storeys of this chawl have some secrets too which is revealed in due course. Enjoy this wonderful ride. Special mention is Renuka Shahahe who is overshadowed in the industry!

Hope Aur Hum (Director- Sudip Bandyopadhyay)

From the trailer itself, I knew it is going to be a nostalgia ride. It is a sweet and simple story of an old widower, Nagesh, played beautifully by Naseeruddin Shah who cannot sell off the old Xerox machine that seldom works. It takes up unnecessary space at home and this leads to some friction in the family. Letting go off is a painful act and art. The latest photocopy machine comes and Nagesh has to come to terms with his memories. Various sub-plots of the movie also point at “new replacing the old”. Watch out Naseeruddin Shah & Kabir Sajid in this nostalgia-ridden movie.

Kaalakaandi (Director- Akshat Verma)

This movie didn’t work at the box office because it was way ahead of its time. Bollywood and the audience are perhaps still not ready to taste this slice of life yet an off-beat movie. If released digitally on streaming platforms, perhaps this movie would have fared better. The doctor says that Saif Ali Khan is in the last stage of Stomach Cancer and he now just want to do all those things that he has never done before. This is a story of a night of full of adventure, exploration, compassion, discovery, comedy, and tragedy. Apart from Saif, there are other stories also who are constantly going through a mad ride all over the night. This type of comedy is perhaps overlooked now but would be treated as a cult classic after a few years!

Some other mentions of underrated Bollywood movies from 2018 would be Hansal Mehta’s Omerta, Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds, Gauravv K. Chawla’s Baazaar, Anubhav Sinha’s Mulk, and Sanjay Patel’s Union Leader.

Goa is not only famous for its soothing beaches, inexpensive beers, and a breezy climate, but also for hosting the prestigious International Film Festival of India or IFFI. This was the 49th year of Goa Film Festival or IFFI and it took place between 20th November and 28th November 2018. It showcased 212 movies shortlisted from 68 countries across the world. Indian Panorama segment showcasing the brilliance of Indian Cinema had 47 movies in its kitty. This time Israel was the focus country and Jharkhand was the focus state. The opening movie was “The Aspern Papers” from the UK and the closing movie was “Sealed Lips” from Germany. Take a look at the list of best movies from IFFI 2018 and arrange the DVD of these movies or watch them online if you are a cinephile.

  1. Birds of Passage (Spain)

Birds of Passage is a Spanish language movie directed by Cristina Gallego & Ciro Guerra. It was selected to open the 50th edition of the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival along with its selection at the 91st Academy Awards for the “Best Foreign Language Film”. This movie tells the story of a Wayuu family who is Native American Ethnic Group of the Guajira Peninsula in the Northern part of Colombia & Venezuela. The rise and fall of a Wayuu family is the basic storyline here that goes back to the time of illegal drug trading in Columbia in the late 1960s and 1970s.

  1. Climax (French-American)

Climax is a mystery drama movie directed by Gaspar Noé. Like Birds of Passages, this movie too was screened at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival in the “Directors Fortnight” section. Some French dancers are shown gathered in an isolated and empty school building. They are there to rehearse on a winter night. Now, this all-night celebration alters into a hallucinatory nightmare when they get to know that the Sangria is mixed with LSD. This cool and hypnotic psychological thriller is something you won’t forget for a long time.

  1. Olu (Kerala, India)
Olu (Kerala, India)

Olu is a Malayalam movie directed by the National Award winning director Shaji N. Karun. Perhaps it is one of the most unconventional movies presented in recent times. Olu means “She”. It is the story of a girl named Maya who is mercilessly raped and drowned in the famous Kerala backwaters. But quite mysteriously, she survives underwater and is carrying the child too. On full moon nights, she is able to see above water and on one such night, she meets Vasu, the painter who is in struggling to create something amazing in his paintings. To know the rest of the story, you have to watch this beautiful movie which is visually stunning. You would find a wonderful mix of traditional beliefs, religions, customs, and mythology that enhances the layers of this movie. A maverick world of fantasy is created which would soak in the minds of cinephiles for sure.

  1. Uma (West Bengal, India)

Coming from the exceptionally brilliant talent named Srijit Mukherjee, you can only sit back and gasp at the storyline with awe. This time, Srijit Mukherkjee has woven the emotional layers just like a dream. Cinema is all about a dream only – isn’t it? So, how a team of dedicated artists extends this dream is what you would see in this movie.

It is a story of a Bengali father and daughter settled in Switzerland. The daughter named Uma (the other name of Devi Durga) is terminally ill and want to witness the famous Durga Puja in Kolkata. The doctors say that she perhaps won’t live till October to see Durga Puja. So, a friend of Uma’s dad pops up the idea of celebrating a fake Durga Puja in a bustling Kolkata. They hire a yesteryear fading director for this job. This job requires a narrator who can blur all the lines between pragmatism and falsity. What follows is a series of “goose bumps producing” incidents.

  1. Winter Flies (Czech Republic)

It is a movie that narrates the story of two boys who are still in their teens – Mara & Hedu. They both left home and is driving through the countryside into the wild, adventurous, and frozen. They meet many faces in this journey which helps them to shape a theory about the world. Directed by Olmo Omerzu, this movie was one of the entrants at the “Best Foreign Film” category at the 91st Oscars. The director got “Best Director” award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on 2018.

2018 in Bollywood saw an interesting mix of biopics, social drama, horror, mystery, thriller, period drama, comedy, and family drama. One thing that is getting evident from the last few years is that now Bollywood simply cannot fool Indian audiences. The audience is smart and agile today as they have many modes of entertainment these days. So, “content is king” is the phrase which every production house, writer, and director is understanding. This 2018 was another example of how movies can have a successful run at the box office not based on A-list stars or big budget but simply on content. Thugs of Hindostan, Race 3, & Zero are like the final warning to the top stars of the country – don’t make mindless cinema because people invest their hard earned money to get entertained. And entertainment these days come with a bit of logic!

Here are the best of Bollywood- 2018
Andhadhun

I simply wanted to dance in the theater shouting out “This is the movie we all deserve”. Undoubtedly this is the “Movie of the Year” and it is going to sweep away all the major awards. This movie is like “Kahaani” of 2012 that showed Bollywood how chronicles and subtexts are developed in motion. Tabu as the ruthless woman & Ayushman as the “acting-blind” pianist simply nailed their roles. Too smart editing of Pooja Ladha Surti, the impactful direction of Sriram Raghavan, and peppy music of Amit Trivedi gave huge profit to this one. This is one of the rarest of rare Bollywood movies which has an “Open End”. It means you can form your kind of story regarding how things must have turned!

Badhaai Ho

Directed by debutant Amit Sharma, Badhaai Ho was made on a budget of 22 crores and now it is “still counting” post 220 crores. It dealt with a very rigid and restricted topic of “romance & pregnancy post 50”. Very cleverly, the cynicism and hypocrisy of the society. The octogenarian mother even utters that “how can you be a govt. employee, if you don’t listen to govt. of using contraceptives”. The infusion of this social anxiety is done very carefully sans “high-octane” drama and that’s why it clicked with everyone. But post interval, somewhere this movie was dripping but quickly the director pulled up the socks.

Stree

Bollywood came up with a “horror comedy” this time and the fun part is that there was hardly any horrific scene. Debutant director Amar Kaushik made this movie which makes us think deeply considering the current time. The female spirit calls men with their names at night and takes them away to a haunted house leaving only their clothes. In a land where for centuries men have threatened and dominated the women, here is a movie where men are wearing sarees to disguise as women as they are petrified by “Stree”. A special mention of Pankaj Tripathi must be done here. He is a stellar performer in the tiniest of roles!

Manmarziyaan

Someone who has grown up in the 90’s and embraced adolescence in the millennium would have no problem in understanding the sweet and deep undertone of this flick. How do “Tinder-Generation” people perceive love? Is love only about sex? How far can you extend yourself for love? How long can you wait for that perfect love? And how easy is to forgive and forget? This movie raised these questions and answered them too. The most beautiful subtext of this movie was the continuous glimpse of the twins in Amritsar & Kashmir that kept on relating to the dualism in the head of the characters. Anurag Kashyap made me his fan again.

As the trailer says, “this is not a love story, but a story about love”, it lived up to the tagline truly. Many people didn’t get the motto of the movie but its ok all movies are different and are meant for different audiences. Those who love good cinema were impressed with what Shoojit Sircar brought to theaters. Varun Dhawan completely shed his star glamor and became the irritating and loser Dan Walia.

Harsh Chhaya forayed into direction for the first time and I think he should wear this director’s cap more often. He simply showed it to the rest of the directors how a good film is made. This movie is about a family which you will literally identify. This movie had everything – relatives about whom we keep on gossiping, the greed for family property, lying to relatives about whereabouts, show off, and the undying love and care which a family showers. It could have faltered but the perfect comedy timing of the great actors saved this one. I don’t know why no one is talking about this movie in the year-end round up of movies. But definitely, you must watch it for a relaxing weekend!

Sanju

Big banner, Big Opening, & a Smash Hit – this is all Ranbir Kapoor needed post break up and flops. As a cinegoer, the audience is only interested in an entertaining story. And that’s why despite various controversies too, this movie was accepted. Ranbir Kapoor truly became a clone of Sanjay Dutt and Vicky Kaushal was the other actor which Bollywood re-discovered. The supporting cast was also used well be it Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma or Sonam Kapoor. Rajkumar Hirani, although missed Sanju’s relationship with his past wife and children still this is a movie worth your money.

Based on a true story “Calling Sehmat” by Harinder S. Sikka, Meghna Gulzar wrote a brilliant screenplay. It was meant to be a small and a slightly un-Dharma Productions kind of movie and thus the budget was also hardly 35 crores. But a perfect direction and performance of talent on screen made it one of the highest grosser on 2018. It deserves all the attention and accolades truly.

Tumbbad

Another first-time director duo – Rahi Anil Barve & Adesh Prasad presented a stunning movie of 2018. This is something “never done before” in Hindi cinema. Bollywood has shown horror movies with scary faces but somewhere every attempt has been outlandish. Tumbbad starts as a dark horror movie which is quite eerie and next moves on to a story of greed and how the generation suffers for that. It is a visually stunning film.

I love the simple, innocent, and rugged world of Vishal Bhardwaj cinema. He reminds of Gulzar with his work. This is a story of two sisters who hate each other since birth. And their father is always in tension for that. With the turn of fate, they are married in the same house and how they treat each other is for you to watch. What was written in Charan Singh Pathik’s short story titled Do Behnein was portrayed and what was not written was also amazingly expressed by Radhika Madan & Sanya Malhotra. With a perfect company of Sunil Grover, this movie went a few notches higher than what was written on the script.

I would also like to mention the dark horse of the year- Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, socially awakening Pad Man, sports drama Mukkabazz, psychological drama Gali Guleiyan, unusual gritty thriller Pihu, historical Parmanu, and dramatic Hichki too.

Movies are the biggest source of entertainment in India. Made up of the ingredients of drama, comedy, and acting, they transport your senses to a different world filled with fantasy and imagination. Bollywood, in general, is known for making movies with the huge budget, elaborate cast, and sets larger than life. Of course, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas, Bajirao Mastani, Padmavat, etc, are a few names to be clicked in your mind. But lately, some low-budget movies with the strong script, impressive characters, and top-notch acting skills have won over people’s heart. So here are 5 budget Bollywood movies that made it big on the silver screen in 2018.

Pad Man

He is a social activist from Tamil Nadu who introduced low-cost sanitary pads. The menstrual cycle is still considered taboo in India. Many women in various parts of the country suffer from several diseases. As a result of using unhygienic, dirty rags during their periods. Which is sometimes due to the lack of knowledge about the importance of hygiene during menstruation. And mainly because they cannot afford pads due to financial issues.

This movie puts light on the efforts of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is commonly known as Pad Man. And spread awareness about menstrual hygiene in a loud and clear voice. Made with a low-budget of Rs. 20 crores, this movie gained great popularity among the audience and garnered the total box office collection of Rs. 120 crores.

And only leaves their clothes behind. A sentence “O Stree Kal Aana” is written at the entrances of the house to protect men from her wrath.

Shannon Purser has been a known face since she’s playing Ethel in Netflix’s popular Riverdale. A mistaken identity incident that leads to an unexpected romance. When a most popular-school-mean girl Veronica deliberately gives out Sierra’s phone number to our very own heartthrob Jamey. The virtual romance starts to take place. The story revolves around how Sierra falls in love with Jamey and stalls all the possible situations to face him. What happens with her self-esteem is a scenario that all the girls out there can relate to.

This teen rom-com made a buzz but for all the fail reasons. Whereas Sierra has been portrayed as a well-mannered girl, in the beginning, is seen catfishing Jamey. This one did make a buzz but is a reminder for what all the teen loves stories have been showing, which to an extent isn’t the time anymore. Let’s be honest, Noah still won our hearts 😉

Cast- Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams

The entire high-concept-body-image satire talks about a woman (Renee) played by Amy who thinks she’s not beautiful and turns out to be confident as ever and the prettiest when she hits her head at the gym on the bicycle. Wakes up with a nasty concept in her head as a schlubby character an empowering shot of self-confidence. The story is liable to be hilarious. This one absolutely made a buzz with all the young girls or all the internet influencers popular for portraying themselves as pretty as unreal fairies with all the makeup and camera stuff!

But to be honest, Amy is loved for her body image confidence. The message delivery denouement was merely belaboring. But the message was loud and clear-whatever you accomplish, you do it with self-confidence in the same body you were born with! “I feel pretty” would obviously make you feel empowered and with a hint of you should love yourself more often feeling.
