Here are some terrific Hindi movies of 2019 that made my jaw dropped with their sheer brilliance:
- Gully Boy
This Zoya Akhtar masterpiece of art had Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. Ranveer Singh aka Murad plays a Muslim man from the slums of Dharavi who aspires to be a rapper and Rockstar whereas Alia, his love interest, who wants to become a doctor and plays a solid support to Murad.
This movie shouts loud about daring to dream while his own family stands in his way. The way Murad showed that art is liberating, immortal, and can be still felt even if the person is not around anymore. This is one of the absolutely must watch movies of 2019 that leaves a tug in your heart while you relive all the emotions.
- Uri-The Surgical Strike
Uri is about a covert operation carried out by Indian Army, led by the brilliant leadership of Major Vihaan Shergill. The movie is based on the retaliation attacks that Indian Army carried out in response to the attack by Pakistani militants on the Uri Base Camp in Kashmir in 2016 that killed many Indian soldiers.
The movie starred Vicky Kaushal as the lead character and shone flawlessly in the movie. His adaptation of the character, his staunch portrayal, the restraint emotions – everything just makes this movie worth watching if you’re a true Indian and patriotic movies fil you with euphoria. The movie can be watched on wifi tv setup box at home to make the most of your movie experience.
- Dream Girl
This movie is a roller coaster of laughter and punches and all things drama. Every minute there is some dialogue or punch or the other that leaves you in splits. Karamveer, played by Ayushmann Khurrana, is a middle-class boy desperate for a job. He actually lands himself a job in an adult helpline run call centre for his ability to talk like a woman. He flourishes and gets success in the job, gets engaged to his love played by Nushrat Barucha but due to some overzealous clients, he lands himself in trouble.
- The Sky Is Pink
Shonali Bose’s ‘The Sky is Pink’ is about the heart-warming tale revolving around a serious illness and the underlying comedy around a dark subject that could have otherwise gone monotonous or gory. The Hindi movie beautifully represents Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar as compassionate caregivers to their terminally-ill daughter.
The movie expresses heart-wrenching pain that gets unbearable at times while ripping the heart apart and then gently puts everything back together. The movie is a beautiful testimony to how an aching wound and the void of losing a loved one can be translated into specks of strength.
One of the most underrated Hindi movies of 2019, Nitesh Tiwari’s Chhichhore is an ode to thick college friendships and the life in Indian college campuses on point. The movie revolves around the stories of a bunch of underdogs comprising of Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Sharma, and others.
While in the desperate attempt to lose their loser’s tag, they take part in college championship much against their winning predictions. The characters are real to the core, the narratives are engaging, and the situations are hell relatable. What shines through the movie is its phenomenal screenplay that doesn’t lose a thread in the entire movie swinging back to past and present.
These movies shone and rose to their brilliance in the year 2019 and made sure that the smart and clever writing is still existing and made us hope to see much more of it in 2020. These Hindi movies can be watched on wifi tv setup box or dish tv set top box with wifi anytime, on demand.
