7 Most Shocking Movies Of Indian Cinema

Team FC

Anjaam (1994) - JioCinema

Shah Rukh Khan's dimples were still being used for evil then, so it will be a shock to anyone who has only seen SRK's lover boy era films. It is Darr (1993) on steroids, with intense violence, revenge, obsessive love, stalking, and more. Madhuri Dixit's transformation will leave you spellbound.

Matrubhoomi: A Nation Without Women (2003) - YouTube

This movie shows us what happens when you drown every female child and punish every woman for giving birth to a girl. When misogyny takes over with no woman except one, Kalki (Tulip Joshi), left to mistreat, it's a nightmare for everyone involved. Traumatic, to say the least.

Gulaal (2009) - N.A.

A political thriller set in Rajasthan, this movie by Anurag Kashyap sucks you into a vortex of dark political agendas and the misguided beliefs of royal communities. Kay Kay Menon as Dukey will scare you, but also make you think.

LSD: Love Sex Aur Dhokha (2010) - Disney+ Hotstar

Dibakar Banerjee had delivered hits before this, but showing the realistic and gruesome alternative to 'love conquers all' in such a gruesome way shocked the audiences. +1 for Rajkummar Rao for being a powerhouse even in his second-ever movie.

Ugly (2013) - Disney+ Hotstar/Amazon Prime

Another one of Anurag Kashyap's 'slightly unhinged' thrillers, Ugly has a cute cameo by Alia Bhatt, but a not-so-cute storyline of a cop (Ronit Roy) trying to find his kidnapped step-daughter. The movie will make you uncomfortable, and the ending will take a while to recover from.

Titli (2014) - Amazon Prime

If you liked Kabir and Jazz from the Made in Heaven series, give this film a try. Their performances as Titli and Shivani are captivating in this gory thriller, and Ranvir Shorey's rawness as the elder brother and mastermind behind a car-jacking operation will leave you stunned.

Welcome Home (2020) - Disney+ Hotstar

This Marathi horror film about two census takers is shocking not just because it's based on a true story but also because the unforgiving visuals, background score, and convincing performances might give you nightmares for a while.
