Sringaram won three awards at the 53rd National Film Awards and two Tamil Nadu State Film Awards.

Delhi 6

Streaming on: Netflix

Director: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra

Set in Old Delhi, Delhi 6 is the story of Roshan Mehra (Abhishek Bachchan), who accompanies his grandmother (Waheeda Rehman) to India because she wants to die where she was born. In her review of the film, Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta wrote, “The trouble with ‘Delhi 6’ is just this: Mehra is so focused on getting the setting right that he forgets to move his movie along. It’s one thing to translate the slow, old-world quality of the place; it’s quite another for your story to have to struggle to come up for air.”

Yeh Saali Zindagi

Streaming on: YouTube

Director: Sudhir Mishra

Starring Irrfan Khan, Arunoday Singh, Chitrangda Singh, Aditya Rao Hydari, Sushant Singh and Saurabh Shukla among others, Yeh Saali Zindagi is a black comedy. The story unfolds in Delhi and its surrounding areas. Irrfan Khan plays a sly CA, Arun, who has been an asset to his shady boss Mehta (Saurabh Shukla). While on business, he meets a singer Preeti (Chitrangada Singh) and falls in love with her, but she loves a businessman. In this tangled love story comes a gangster Kuldeep (Arunoday Singh) who, to secure his wife (Aditi Rao Hydari) and his son’s future, kidnaps Preeti to extort some money. Ultimately, everybody is running after somebody and this game of hide and seek becomes chaotic and interesting.

London, Paris, New York

Director: Anu Menon

Streaming on: Eros Now, Disney Plus Hotstar

Two strangers, Nikhil (Ali Zafar) and Lalitha (Aditi Rao Hydari) fall in and out of love in seven years during their trips to London, Paris and New York. The film starts on a promising note but towards its second half becomes a typical Bollywood romance filled with song and dance sequences. Anybody who is a fan of Hindi cinema’s fairytale love stories might watch it till the end, otherwise, it gets tiring to sit through the entire duration of the film.

Murder 3

Streaming on: YouTube

Director: Vishesh Bhatt

The third film in Mahesh Bhatt’s Murder franchise, Murder 3 is the official remake of a Spanish film titled La Cara Oculta (The Hidden Face). It revolves around Vikram (Randeep Hooda), a wildlife photographer in South Africa who shifts to Mumbai for fashion photography. His girlfriend (Aditi Rai Hydari), who has a flourishing career as an architect in South Africa, moves with him too. But one day, she goes missing mysteriously. And, Vikram finds another girlfriend in bartender Nisha (Sara Loren) who starts living with him in his lavish yet spooky house. The film has an interesting plot twist in the second half only if you manage to survive it till then.

Boss

Streaming on: YouTube, JioCinema

Director: Anthony D’Souza

The action-comedy, starring Akshay Kumar, Aditi Rao Hydari, Mithun Chakraborty, Shiv Panditt and Ronit Roy, comes sans any logic. It has Akshay playing the titular role of Boss. If I suggest you to watch it just for the laughs and melodrama, that would also be saying too much.

Wazir

Kaatru Veliyidai, starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari, checks all the boxes of a Mani Ratnam film. Every frame is like a painting, and Hydari is the epitome of beauty.

Though Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama was an out and out Ranveer Singh show, the one who also made us sit up and take notice was elegant and regal Mehrunissa, Allaudin Khilji’s wife, played by Aditi Rao Hydari. The film narrated the story of a Rajput queen, Rani Padmavati.

Sammohanam

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

Director: Mohanakrishna Indraganti

Sammohanam review Aditi Rao Hydari, Sudheer Babu Aditi Rao Hydari and Sudheer Babu in Sammohanam.

In his review of the film, The Indian Express’ Manoj Kumar R wrote, “Sammohanam has its ‘magical’ moments, especially in the scenes where Vijay’s family try to lift each other up during their trying times. Aditi and Sudheer also strike an interesting chemistry. Look for their scene together on a rain-soaked terrace. But, the film falls short of rising above its own limitations. It is likely because of the weak spots in Sameera’s character.”

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam

Director: Mani Ratnam

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam box office A still from Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.

The 143-minute-long film revolves around three bloodthirsty brothers who are after their father’s criminal enterprise.

Psycho

Streaming on: Netflix

Director: Mysskin

Psycho, starring Udhayanidhi Stalin, Nithya Menen, Aditi Rao Hydari, is a Tamil psychological thriller. While recommending the film, The Indian Express’ Manoj Kumar R wrote, “In Psycho, Mysskin adopts Hitchcock’s ‘bomb theory’ to create suspense. He shows us the bomb in the very beginning and then moves the camera to the ticking clock. Mysskin aspires to achieve multiple things with Psycho, not just provide a mere edge-of-the-seat horror experience, which makes you watch the movie through the gaps between your fingers. The movie is a social commentary on various matters starting from its effort to expand the definition of a psychopath.”

Sufiyum Sujatayum movie release Sufiyum Sujatayum is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
