1. Soni (2018)

Picked by: Onir


Soni is a film on Netflix that’s about a young policewoman in Delhi. The film has been brilliantly cast. Also, the way the film has been shot is strong and very contemporary.”

2. Island City (2015)

Picked by: Leena Yadav


Island City by Ruchika Oberoi is an anthology of three narratives from the city of Mumbai. The film has a quirky look to it that I quite like, but at the same time, it realistically represents the city, and has been directed really well.”

3. Destroyer (2018)

Picked by: Sanjay Gupta


“This film starring Nicole Kidman was very well made and interesting. Nicole plays the role of a 50-year-old alcoholic cop and went beyond the call to look the part. Her make-up and everything else was incredibly convincing.”

4. Ghode Ko Jalebi Khilane Le Jaa Riya Hoon(2019)

Picked by: Amit Masurkar


“This film by Anamika Haksar is one of the best indie films India has ever produced. The film explores the lives and the hustle of Old Delhi and the picture is very real and lively. I’m very impressed with the storytelling of this film.”

5. Loev (2015)

Picked by: Alankrita Srivastava


Loev by Sudhanshu Saria is a beautiful love story between two men. I feel the film has been made very candidly and with a lot of honesty, and has a certain ease without any artifice, which I really liked.”
