Best Hindi Movies on Netflix that you can’t miss!
Netflix has a fairly large library of some of the finest Hindi films. Hence, it’s not your fault that you are having trouble digging up some really nice film for your binge night. Let me be your Netflix guide for a while. Here’s a list of some of the best Hindi movies on Netflix that you can re-watch for the umpteenth time.
1.Qarib Qarib Single (2017)
Qarib Qarib Single is a sweet film starring Parvathy Thiruvoth and the late Irrfan Khan. Parvathy plays Jayasree, a Malayalee woman who is 35 years old and widowed. Her life feels too banal and to spice things up, she joins an online dating site. There she comes across the most eccentric man ever-Yogendra “Yogi” Kumar Devendra Nath Prajapati (Irrfan Khan), a happy-go-lucky man. How their lives take interesting turns after they meet is what Qarib Qarib Single is all about. The film is a light-hearted romantic comedy that will not disappoint you. If anything, you can spend two hours watching Irrfan do his enchanting magic on the screen.
Tamasha may not be Imtiaz Ali’s finest film but still qualifies as an entertainer that will keep you engaged. The chemistry between the lead actors is endearing, so is the A R Rahman music. The film, without being preachy, inspires us to live a life we want for ourselves, even if our peers don’t understand it. The very narrative of Tamasha makes it a refreshing watch.
3. Dear Zindagi (2016)
A reminder of how we casually dismiss the need for mental health could not have been said better. Gauri Shinde, through her film Dear Zindagi, spreads the message, loud and clear. Alia Bhatt plays Kiara, a brilliant young cinematographer who is suffering from childhood trauma. An incident that happened in her childhood leaves a scar in her mind and she now faces trouble finding meaningful relationships. Dr.Jehangir Khan (Dr.Jug), her therapist, helps her heal this scar and live a beautiful life. In the end, we are all left wanting a Dr.Jug in our lives!
4. Kai Po Che (2013)
Kai Po Che is a film that gave three very promising actors to Bollywood-Sushant Singh Rajput, Rajkumar Rao, and Amit Sadh. The film is the adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s 2008 best seller Three Mistakes of My Life. It’s a new millennium and new hopes and new dreams are on the cue. Three friends find themselves in some twists and turns that life has thrown at them. Kai Po Che is a very soul-filling film that will leave a lump in your throat.
5. Wake Up Sid (2009)
Sid (Ranbir Kapoor) is a lazy and careless boy in his 20s. His father’s immense wealth has rendered him aimless and he ends up taking everything for granted. Enter Aisha Banerjee and Sid’s life changes for good. Aisha inspires him to live by himself and earn some money. He slowly learns discipline and becomes an independent individual, just how his father wanted him to be. Wake Up Sid is a simple fun movie that deserves a watch.
6. Andhadhun (2018)
Andhadhun is undoubtedly one of the best thrillers ever made in Bollywood. Ayushmann Khurrana shines as a blind musician and Tabu once again shows us how she is still top on her game. It would be really unfair to give away too much about the movie. Trust me, just watch it to get your mind blown!
7. Rang De Basanti (2006)
Rang De Basanti is a film that leaves you with extra love and respect for our country. The film is a mix of political and patriotic drama and explores the nation through the eyes of the youth of the country. With an ensemble cast, the film had broken all the collection records upon its release on 26th January 2006. Several awards that the film received is a testament to how brilliant the movie is.
8. Lust Stories (2018)
Lust Stories is an anthology film with four short films that explore the hushed sentiments of female sexual desires. The film in itself is an audacious attempt and clearly leaves a mark. Every segment speaks volumes about a person’s freedom to express their sexual desires and feel the way they want to. The film celebrates lust, rewriting the age-old conventions associated with it.
9. Queen (2013)
Kangana Ranaut shines in this Vikas Behl directorial. Queen is a funny yet inspiring film about Rani, a timid 24-year-old girl who goes on her honeymoon all by herself. Imagine, a person like Rani all by herself in the city of Paris! The events that happen, the people she meets is what the film is all about. By the end of her honeymoon, she rediscovers herself and becomes her own person.
10. Article 15 (2019)
Article 15 is a film with an intense tone. The film is a raw insight into India’s caste-based oppression which is still prevalent but hardly focused upon. While we advocate modernity and liberation, there’s a section of people who are denied basic rights to livelihood. Ayushmann Khurrana stuns in his cop role. Other cast members including Sayani Gupta and Zeeshan Ayub also gave a memorable performance.
