To what extent can we go for the person we love? Nishant, directed by the eminent Shyam Benegal and starring Shabana Azmi,Naseeruddin Shah, Smita Patil and Amrish Puri, is about sexual exploitations of women back in the feudal age in Indian states. The story is about the struggle of a school teacher against four
corrupt feudal lords of his village, who have kidnapped his young wife. And the situation is more or less, similar to today’s plights faced by women.
This is one of my personal favorite Bengali movies, of course based on another one of Tagore’s novels. The movie based on prison inmates, in the Presidency Jail. The inmates, who have really dark pasts, try to reform themselves over time. The movie has some really beautiful tracks, and will definitely touch your heart.
Yaaron dosti badi hi haseen hai. As kids we all had some really awesome friends, some imaginary, some from the classrooms of our kindergarten. But Tahaan, the eight-year old boy found friendship in his pet donkey. The movie stars Anupam Kher, Purav Bhandare, Rahul Bose and Sarika. The movie Tahaan is about the boy trying to find the meaning and the purpose of his small world, and though it is about a kid, it will certainly amaze you.

It’s a movie from 1961 and portrays the sweet relationship between Afghan immigrant, Khan, who sells dry fruits, and Mini, a little girl, whom he considers as his daughter, in memory of his actual daughter whom he left behind in Afghanistan. The tender story of their relationship surely will bring a smile on your face.
For all you poetry freaks, this short movie directed by award-winning director Nitin Kakkar, pays a tribute to Saadat Hasan Manto’s poem. It’s beautiful, do watch.
Though very underrated, this is one fine movie, and I personally recommend it. Starring Sanjay Dutt, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Zayed Khan, the story about a writer, played by Dutt, and his wife Aishwarya. He writes a novel about a woman named Tamanna but whatever he imagines and writes, it comes true, in the life of Aishwarya. At a point, he writes about a man falling in love with Aishwarya. Shortly after, Aishwarya, who works in a school, meets Zayed. Zayed, unknown to the fact that she is married, falls in love with her. This movie also has one of my favorite songs, “Khoya Khoya” 😉
