2. Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi Manikarnika

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

“Riding on the back of a horse with its lagaam in one hand and a swinging sword in other, an infant tied to her chest and fire sparkling in her red eyes- the valour of Jhansi ki Rani Lakshmibai is unforgotten”

This film speaks about the legend of Queen Lakshmibai, who fought for the throne by igniting an inferno through the “Indian rebellion of 1857” against the British Raj. Kangana Ranaut, who is herself the queen of Bollywood, paints the picture of that fierce warrior by portraying the utmost sense of chivalry rushing in her blood.

The movie will give you goosebumps as Kangana has not come undone this time! The remembrance of history lessons and the breathtaking power-packed scenes makes this one special. Though it is surprising to see that the movie could only get an unfair share of 6/10 IMDb ratings but kind words coming from the mouth of the audience were enough to give this one a heads up!


3. Thackeray Thackeray

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

“The tiger of Maratha land is here to roar and every time the sun rises from the horizon, people will remember him”

Depicting the biopic of Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray, the making of this iconic film has brought justice to his portrayal as “The Marathi tiger”.  The film has a stunning depiction, majorly due to the creative use of colors- black & white cinematography for the early days of the character and colorful picturization for the rest of the part.

No one except Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is known for his magnetic acting, could imitate the senior Thackeray to near perfection.  The story illustrates the first half where Balasaheb Thackeray was a cartoonist for the profession and then takes a leap to the part where he makes his grand entry to politics as an influential Marathi leader.


4. Bharat Bharat

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

The Drama Action movie is based on the post-independence story of protagonist Bharat, portrayed by the bhaijaan of Bollywood- Salman Khan. The perfectly timed Eid release and gilded star cast including Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Tabu, Jackie Shroff, etc. make this one a blockbuster hit. Adding more to the success, the film is crowned with the title of the third highest-grossing movie of 2019.

The scenes running through the movie are based on the portrayal of an ordinary man surviving the crisis at the time of Indian independence period. However, critics and audience do not seem to agree with this. As critiqued by viewers- “The movie is laden with loopholes and the entertaining songs that lack sense does not seem to cover-up for the flaws”


5. Romeo Akbar Walter romeo akbar walter

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

When John Abraham, the stunner of Action movies acted in trio-role in this movie, the audience could not control the ecstasy. The action thriller with first initials as RAW has a plot based on espionage in Pakistan. The movie is full of twists and turns and does not fail to surprise us, but at the same time seems complex and the messy leap of events does not add up.

The similar kind of Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Raazi’ made a soft corner in our heart, whereas RAW lacked certain points to reach that level. John is definitely the best thing about the movie and makes it a superb one-time watch.


6. Amavas Amavas

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

With as low as 3.2 ratings on IMDb, this action thriller came to the silver screen in February 2019. If you are a light-hearted person, then the scary beginning and haunting scenes throughout is definitely not your cup of tea.

The storyline goes in a predictable manner and does not suit the thriller genre- absolutely nothing new! A couple plans a week visit to their summer home and things turn into a nightmare due to the presence of a spirit that haunts them. The humorous punches by the caretaker of the villa will lighten the aura and you may giggle on his dialogues and enjoy the songs.


7. Uri:The Surgical Strike Uri:The Surgical Strike

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

“How’s the Josh?”

Uri has managed to keep the josh still very high sir.

One can watch this masterpiece over & over again and still cannot forget the patriotism instilling performance of Vicky Kaushal. The real-life event based film is an unparalleled depiction of Uri surgical strike performed by the Indian army. The energy flowing through the character of Major Vihaan Shergill will make you proud to be an Indian.

No man could do this better than our favourite Vicky Kaushal.  Reel meets real through this homage for the fallen soldiers of surgical strikes. The powerful visuals and josh-filled songs in the voice of Shashwat Sachdev have been honored with awards and appreciations time and again!

The success of the movie can be guessed by its re-release in the theatres on Kargil Diwas, so if you have not seen this epic movie, now is your chance!


8. Kesari Kesari

The Battle of Saragarhi could not get a better portrayal than this action drama movie with Akshay Kumar as the hero. The golden history of this epic battle is known by less and the film was the perfect unveiling of the story. Sent on the forefront of fort Saragarhi due to his rebellious nature, Ishar Singh had to face his destiny with 20 Sikh soldiers.

It was a combat of 21 Sikhs and 10,000 Afghani Pathans. The story highlights the war drama enriched with bravery and valor of Sikh warriors in their Kesari turbans. It also keeps the audience engaged due to the patriotism arousing scenes.

Revenge will be taken but most unpredictably!

A crime mystery thriller involves an intense murder investigation on accused Naina Sethi for the murder of her lover and it will greet you will surprises that you would not be able to guess. The ending is everything and the audience is perplexed with utter shock.

The movie is based on a three-hour conversation set in a room between Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan), the lawyer and Naina (Tapsee). The gripping and captivating storyline made this 10 crores budgeted movie to be in the league of 100 Crores club of the Bollywood.


10. Junglee junglee

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

Rarely a movie is made focusing on animal abuse, and Junglee with such a theme has everything feel-good about it. The movie is based on the character of a vet named Raj who is determined with a mission to fight the international poaching racket at his father’s elephant reserve. Power-packed with martial arts and stunts, the movie will thrill you with the action scenes performed by Vidyut Jammwal.

The movie is also able to convey an awareness message to take a step against the poaching of elephants by avoiding goods made from their tusks.  The direction by the American director amidst the wilderness of Jungle is amazing.


11. Blank Blank

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

“A movie starring Sunny Deol is the perfect recipe for an action movie”

Showcasing the major theme of terrorism, Blank stands a little above the average in terms of rating. The numbered views and housefuls of the movie are solely credited to Sunny Deol and his acting skills. The stunts and action scenes are full of energy.

A suicide bomber with a bomb attached to his heart is no less than a walking death and situations get worse when he has a lost memory. Innocent lives are at stake, the clock is ticking and the ATS officers can save them, but will they be able to make it on time?


12. India’s Most Wanted India’s Most Wanted

Watch Trailer of Sacred Games

A tale of capturing the most wanted International terrorist begins when five men embark this mission in secrecy without getting their cover blown. The International Bureau and intelligence agencies have entrusted these heroes with a huge target on their broad shoulders. Arjun Kapoor acting as Prabhat Kapoor makes this movie a must-watch weekend chiller.

The movie got mixed reviews by critics and audience. The film could be way crispier if some loopholes in the writing could be prevented, but these can definitely be ignored if you focus on the compelling story of these unsung heroes waiting to be unveiled in front of everyone.
