Socha Na Tha

Streaming on: Netflix

Director: Imtiaz Ali

Socha Na Tha showcased those intricacies of love which probably no filmmaker did in Bollywood until then. It steered away from rom-com cliches and was relatable to those in love or seeking love. The movie was led by Abhay Deol and Ayesha Takia who impressed with their raw acting skills and simplicity. If you haven’t watched it yet, Socha Na Tha has everything to make it to your weekend watchlist.

Ahista Ahista

Streaming on: Netflix

Director: Shivam Nair

Written by Imtiaz Ali, Ahista Ahista is a watchable film if you choose to ignore its sloppy beginning. It is the story of a young girl Megha (Soha Ali Khan) who runs away from her home in Nainital and reaches Delhi. But she is cheated by her fiance (Shayan Munshi), and she meets Ankush (Abhay Deol) who takes her around the streets of old Delhi. If you like watching easy-breezy romances, Ahista Ahista is a sweet, tender film.

Manorama Six Feet Under

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video, YouTube

Director: Navdeep Singh

Abhay Deol's Manorama Six Feet Under Abhay Deol’s Manorama Six Feet Under is an underrated film.

In her review of Manorama Six Feet Under, The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote, “After Ek Chalis Ki Last Local, Abhay Deol cements his place as a thinking, intelligent actor who is unafraid to experiment. Gul Panag’s full-bodied wife is a pleasant surprise. And Vinay Pathak steals every scene, effortlessly. Navdeep Singh is a man to watch: Manorama, Six Feet Under is one of the most exciting movies I’ve seen in a long, long time.”

Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!

Streaming on: Netflix

Director: Dibakar Banerjee

Said to be based on the real-life antics of Delhi crook Bunty, the crime caper, helmed by Dibakar Banerjee, is a fun watch. It is the story of Lucky Singh who steals hearts and cash in equal measure. He grows from a petty criminal to a cool thief. Abhay Deol as Lucky Singh impresses with his effortless acting and Manjot Singh, Manu Rishi and Paresh Rawal are brilliant too. Watch it if you are in a mood to watch something out of the ordinary.

Loosely adapted from the novel ‘Z’ by Vassilis Vasilikov, Shanghai is a political thriller. Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film a 3.5 star rating and wrote, “Shanghai is fashioned as a political thriller, but it could just as well be a strong treatise on how much of today’s India functions. If you have a powerful ‘haath’ on your ‘sar’, as the propulsively small man Pitobash boasts, you can do anything, even knock a living man down and leave him for dead, without a twinge of conscience. Banerji builds up the layers unerringly, ( please note the by-play between the lowering, intimidating senior cop and the wanting-to-do-his-best ‘babu’) assembling a terrific cast that is mostly played to its strengths. Mostly.”


Streaming on: Voot, YouTube

Director: Aanand L Rai

Kundan (Dhanush) goes around stalking Zoya (Sonam Kapoor) until she tells him about her boyfriend Jagjeet (Abhay Deol). A heartbroken Kundan ruins her life as he reveals to her Muslim family that Jagjeet is a Hindu and gets him killed. Kundan’s betrayal leaves Zoya stone-hearted. All the three lead actors, Kapoor, Deol and Dhansuh aced their characters. Special mention to Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub and Swara Bhaskar who are simply unforgettable as Murari and Bindiya. Despite an intense narrative, the film never gets heavy and keeps bringing in laughter through its well-written dialogues.
