Well, okay, long-lost siblings in the Kumbh Mela reuniting to the tune of Bollywood songs are a thing of the not so distant past. A Bollywood movie is not about melodrama anymore. Bollywood movies are now more thought-provoking and real-life centric.
You know what, you are no Bollywood movies fan if you somehow missed out on watching these best 2017 Bollywood movies. Really. I mean, like, how could you?
1. Hindi Medium
Undoubtedly, this is one of Irrfan’s best movies till date. Hindi Medium tells the spicy tale of parents who had Hindi as their medium of education and desire nothing but the best English medium school for their kid.
Irrfan’s timing with comedy is matchless– you simply cannot afford to miss the showroom scene in the beginning. You’ve been warned! This one instantly takes you to Chandni Chowk where the seasoned Dukandaar leaves no stone unturned to coax you to fall for the Manish Malhotra design.
The movie tickles your funny bone while the gripping twists towards the end are an eye-opener for us all. A profound piece this! One amongst the best movies of 2017 so far!
2. Poorna: Courage Has No Limit
If you are looking for a real dose of serious inspiration, this is it. Period.
Directed by Rahul Bose, Poorna is inspired by the real story of Malavath Poorna, the youngest girl who conquered the formidable Mount Everest with her sheer will and determination. Aditi Inamdar is brilliant in making her character come alive on the silver screen. Words fail me, Rahul Bose!
A Bollywood trendsetter in every sense of the word, Poorna is one of the best Bollywood movies of 2017. A must watch for people of all age groups, this is brilliant cinema. If you haven’t already watched it, you haven’t lived. Like really!
3. Begum Jaan
Srijit Mukherji’s dream would never have been fulfilled had he not picked Vidya Balan to play Begum Jaan. The way she carries herself in this film set in the gloomy partition era will make you a fan if you already aren’t one.
Begum Jaan, unlike many Bollywood movies, carries deeper implications and a profound meaning in every single frame. The cinematography is superb and so is the direction. Anu Malik breathes new life into Bollywood songs with his music.
The fierceness of Begun Jaan’s spirit contrasts with her tender, clement character. Begum Jaan is the real queen protecting and upholding the honour of those who look up to her, in life as in death. Begum Jaan is indeed a strong contender amongst the best Hindi movies of 2017!
4. Secret Superstar: One of the best Hindi movies of 2017 so far!
One of the best movies 2017 really. This is the touching story of the venerable Shakti Singh aka Aamir, oops, Insia, brilliantly played by Zaira Wasim. But let’s face it, Shakti looks cute beyond doubt in the film, doesn’t he?
The film portrays the beautiful mother-daughter bond and packs in a powerful punch. A little tear will for sure trickle down your cheeks during some power-packed performances.
Against all odds rises Insia with the support of her mother (Meher Vij) who’s the real hero of the story. Aamir once again emerges as the silent killer with his unmatched performance, as always.
Finally, a 2017 Bollywood movie that redefines Bollywood music, thanks to the genius of Amit Trivedi. Megna Mishra, the real voice behind the secret superstar, lives up to her title. Her voice will take you inside Insia’s little world for a quick sneak peek. Beware, there’s no return!
Time’s Up! GO, Watch ’em Now!
