9 Best Hindi Movies of 2020 – Watch them already!

🎞

Raat Akeli Hai

1. Raat Akeli Hai

“Yahan jo kaand hua hain na, hum karenge uski jaaanch!!!” 

From the moment I watched the trailer, I’ve been literally hooked with this dialogue by Nawaz. I’m not a big fan of crime thrillers but this was something else. Maybe the reason being that my ex suggested the movie to me!

Anyways, set in Kanpur, ‘Raat Akeli Hai’ follows the story of a cop Jatil Yadav investigating the case of a big zameendar who got mysteriously murdered on the night of his wedding.

With an ensemble cast that includes Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte, Shweta Tripathi, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Swanand Kirkire, and a lot more, this movie was a delight to watch. And I can bet that you won’t be able to guess the killer until revealed. Yes, the movie is that well-layered.

Kaamyaab

2. Kaamyaab

Starring legendary actor, Sanjay Mishra, Kaamyaab tells you the story of a veteran actor who has played several side roles but after his retirement, he realises that he is very close to the mark of 500 films.

So now, in order to complete his 500th film and be in people’s memory forever, he struggles to find work. 

It’s a story about the supporting characters in movies and how easily we forget them. It is heartbreaking yet makes you smile.

Thappad

3. Thappad

Thappad is definitely one of the best-written movies I’ve ever seen. The layers of the characters and details in the story make the movie beyond amazing.

The best thing about the film is that it doesn’t only raise questions but answers them too.

Simply saying, Thappad not only shows the problems in society but also provides you with solutions. If you still haven’t watched this movie, then watch it right now or else you might miss out on something really good.

Tanhaji

4. Tanhaji

Tanhaji was my first Bollywood 3D movie and I’m so thankful that I watched it when I was in Mumbai. The reason I mentioned ‘Mumbai’ here is that until then, I had no idea that Maharashtrians respect Shivaji Maharaj and the history of Maharashtra so damn much. The moment the movie started, I could literally feel the goosebumps, the energy in the hall.

It follows the story of Tanhaji, a Maratha warrior who along with his troop, fought with Mughals who tried to invade and conquer the Kondhana Fort.

Even though I’m not into history or patriotic movies much but this was something else. Be it the visual treat, the first time 3D experience or the terrific performances by Ajay, Saif or Sharad, the movie turned out to be so great.

AK vs. AK

5. AK vs. AK

AK vs. AK is a metafilm that stars Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor in the lead role and is directed by one of the finest directors in Hindi films, Vikramaditya Motwane. 

Anurag and Anil play fictionalised and exaggerated versions of themselves. Anurag Kashyap wants to do a thriller film with Anil Kapoor where Sonam Kapoor goes missing. 

The film creates a blurred line between reality and a fictionalised story. It becomes interesting when more people join the story (Boney Kapoor and Harshvardhan Kapoor) because it creates chaos as needed. 

It may be not best in its genre, but I believe that it was a great step towards good cinema.

Lootcase

6. Lootcase

Directed by debutant director Rajesh Krishnan, the film stars a bunch of talented actors like Kunal Khemu, Rasika Duggal, Vijay Raaz and Ranvir Shorey.

Nandan works in a factory and is always short of money. He accidentally finds a big suitcase full of money and takes it with himself. Trouble begins when a politician, inspector and a gangster are involved.

Don’t miss out on this hilarious gem starring an underrated cast.

Bulbbul

7. Bulbbul

Set in Bengal, Bulbbul follows the story of a child bride and her physical as well as emotional abuse at various stages of her life. 

There’s nothing much that I can say about this movie apart from the fact that it’s an EYE OPENER. It has a good story, terrific performances and perfect visuals, what else does one need out of a movie, huh?

It might look like one but it isn’t horror and… yaar, bas dekhlo isko agar nahi dekha hain already toh.

If you still haven’t watched this film, what the hell are you even doing, huh?

With such an amazing cast, cinematography and music, it is surely worth your time.

Remember that time jab hum hall me jaate the movie dekhne aur end me ek smile ke sath vapas aate the? Aur sochte the ki kya paisa vasool movie thi? This movie gives you that exaaacct feeling!

Four different stories are interconnected through Pankaj Tripathi’s character, who WILL literally steal your heart.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhan

9. Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan

I still remember that Bhoot (Vicky Kaushal wali) & Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan got released on the same day and people were sharing a meme that goes like: “Indian Parents Reacting To Both The Movies: ‘Tumhe galatfemi hui hain. Aisa kuch real me thodi na hota hain.’”

Okay, so the movie follows Jitendra & Ayushmann, a gay couple living together in Delhi, who go to Allahabad to attend one’s sister wedding aur basss! After that, it’s a full comical riot that focuses on the LGBTQ spectrum of our society. 

To be honest, it has a really simple story. You won’t say, “Yaar, kyaaaaa movie thi!!!” after you’re done watching it. But the reason why it’s here in this best of 2020 series is because of how it makes you feel! 

‘Coz even though our generation know that it’s okay to be with someone of your own sex or both, it still isn’t normal for us. But seeing two guys kissing each other and revealing to their families about their sexualities ON THE BIG SCREEN is not something that happens every day. And thus, for the same, kudos to the makers of the movie and our protagonists, Jitendra & Ayushmann ❤
