Lost Good Movies of Indian Cinema

Team FC

Margarita, With a Straw (2015) - Netflix

Margarita, With a Straw is an emotionally direct study of disability through the story of Laila, a rebellious young woman who discovers her own self through the course of the film.

Chittagong (2012) - Google Play Movies

Based on true events, this Indian historical war drama film is the story of a 14-year-old young man in 1930s British Bangladesh who embarks on a journey to determine where he belongs.

Tumbbad (2018)

Directed by Rahi Anil Barve on a meagre budget, Tumbbad is a gorgeous looking horror film. It is not just the phenomenon that is scary, but every aspect of the environment that the characters are in. The viewers end up looking at all of it with a lense of suspicion, and many times fear.

Sehar (2005) - ZEE5

Arshad Warsi, famously known for his comic roles, gets a chance to showcase his dramatic side in Kabeer Kaushik's Sehar. The film is an effective commentary on the organized crime in the state of Uttar Pradesh, shown through the turbulent journey of Ajay Kumar.

Raincoat (2004) - Prime Video

As the name suggests, Raincoat is a story of two estranged lovers who meet after a long six years on a melancholic rainy day. This tragic story is elevated by its restrained nature. It trades the extensive glamour of a typical romance film for something far more intimate and subtle.

Antardwand (2010) - N/A

Loosely based on true events, Antardwand portrays the practice of groom kidnapping in the States of UP and Bihar. It is a compelling story where everybody involved pays a heavy price for the patriarchal power play.

Parzania (2005) - Hotstar

The untold story of one family and a community's loss during an act of communal violence that stunned the whole country. Parzania takes us along the journey of a parsi family struggling to find their son in a genocide which broke out in 2002.
