The year 2021 was a mixed bag not just in terms of genres and stories, but even platforms and mediums. While a major chunk of releases opted for the digital path, those which managed theatrical releases had the added responsibility of bringing people to cinema halls even as a new variant arrived on scene. According to a report of Indian Express here are five best Bollywood films of 2021.
Sherni was a unique tale of primacy of nature and human greed. Directed by Newton fame Amit Masurkar, it starred Vidya Balan and had two tigresses, to say the least. In the midst of its forest and four-legged beasts, Vidya roared the loudest.
Another biopic, Shershaah added a big feather in Sidharth Malhotra’s cap for playing war hero Captain Vikram Batra. The movie was appreciated for staying honest to the soldier’s story and keeping the story of patriotism real.
Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar
From the heart-stopping opening scene to the impactful gender-defying finale, the dark comedy worked due to its layered plot. Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra play protagonists from opposite worlds, fighting for survival and self respect.
