But the city’s most vicious property dealer Kishen Khurana (Boman Irani) encroaches upon his land and demands a high ransom in return. To help Khosla get back his land, Asif Iqbal (Vinay Pathak), an old partner of Khurana, comes up with a plan that he executes with the Khosla family.

It is a story of a music director Ranjeet Thadani (Kapoor) who invites a guest for dinner every Friday to enjoy some laughs. But things go for a toss when he invites a part-time singer Bharat Bhushan (Pathak) who tries to help him get back his wife. It all gets chaotic as Bhushan has the quality of getting on people’s nerves.

Johnny Gaddaar

Streaming on: Disney Plus Hotstar

Director: Sriram Raghavan

If you loved watching Ayushmann Khurrana-Tabu starrer Andhadhun, there are chances that you would love Sriram Raghavan’s Johnny Gaddar. Starring Dharmendra, Rimi Sen, Vinay Pathak, Zakir Husain, Govind Namdeo, Ashwini Kalsekar, Daya Shetty, and Neil Nitin Mukesh, the film is an edge-of-the-seat thriller. Vinay Pathak, Dharmendra and Neil Nitin Mukesh have delivered phenomenal performances here.

Manorama Six Feet Under

Streaming on: YouTube, Amazon Prime Video

Director: Navdeep Singh

Abhay Deol's Manorama Six Feet Under Abhay Deol’s Manorama Six Feet Under is a criminally 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.”

Mithya

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

Director: Rajat Kapoor

The comic thriller is about a wannabe actor VK (Ranvir Shorey) who is kidnapped because he looks similar to mafia kingpin Glum Bhai. He is replaced with the mafia king by the rival gang headed by Naseeruddin Shah. VK starts enjoying the perks of being a mafia lord until he finds himself in the middle of a gang war. Now what more drama does destiny hold for him, makes for the film’s narrative.

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

Director: Aditya Chopra

Dasvidaniya

Streaming on: YouTube

Director: Shashant Shah

The film is a bittersweet story of a middle-aged man Amar Kaul (Vinay Pathak) who discovers he has stomach cancer. He decides to live the last three months of his life to the fullest and makes a list of things he wishes to do before he dies. Though the plot reads similar to films like Anand and Kal Ho Na Ho, it is the treatment which makes Dasvidaniya different. It refrains from being a tearjerker, and the interesting characterisation makes the movie an entertaining watch.

Chalo Dilli

Streaming on: Eros Now, ZEE5, YouTube

Director: Shashant Shah

Here, Vinay Pathak plays a man from Delhi who burps and farts, and Lara Dutta is a sophisticated senior VP of a company. After missed flights and car breakdowns, the two take a road trip together from Jaipur to Delhi in trucks, camel-carts and trains. Inspired by Hollywood classic film Planes, Trains and Automobiles, the film does not offer anything extraordinary.

In her review of Island City, The Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta wrote, “There are several striking visuals in Ruchika Oberoi’s maiden venture which instantly communicate its central theme of dystopian alienation: a large city can turn so impersonal, our relations have become so transactional and empty, and our lives can become so mechanistic that the only one capable of any human warmth, is, ironically, a robot.”

Luka Chuppi

Streaming on: Netflix

Director: Laxman Utekar

Guddu’s family discovers the duo is living together and to avoid any drama, Guddu and Rashmi claim they are already married. How they deal with their respective families while trying to get married in real makes for the film’s narrative.

Director: Vivek Agnihotri
