To be honest, the film business had a better year in 2021 than it did last year. Film sets that had been halted began to reopen, as did movie theatres. Many films were given to us this year that left an indelible mark on our hearts. While war films such as Shershaah wowed us with their subject, acting, and melodies to Mimi that touched us emotionally. Before the year ends, we’ve compiled a list of the best Hindi films of the year thus far. Here’s our list of the films that ranked from 1-5 according to us:
1. Sardar Udham:
Shoojit Sircar is the director of Sardar Udham. Based on the life of Udham Singh, a Punjabi freedom warrior who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer in London in 1919 to avenge the Amritsar massacre at Jallianwala Bagh. Vicky Kaushal plays the lead role, with Shaun Scott, Stephen Hogan, Amol Parashar, Banita Sandhu, and Kirsty Averton providing supporting performances.
2. Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar:
Director Dibakar Banerjee’s already soiled film was thrown in a tiny number of theatres in the heart of the pandemic after languishing in the vaults of YRF for what seems like years. It felt like the movie industry’s equivalent of sweeping something under the rug in the hopes that no one notices. However, you can’t withhold a jewel from those who are destined to see it. Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar found a streaming audience and reminded viewers that dismissing Dibakar Banerjee is the stupidest thing they can do.
Amit Masurkar, the director of Newton, returns with another narrative about a dedicated Indian government official who simply wants to do her job properly but is strangled by local politics, ground reality, and the bureaucratic machine’s incompetence. Vidya Balan gives a controlled performance as a forest service officer in the Madhya Pradesh forests dealing with a man-eating tigress problem.
In Shershaah, Sidharth Malhotra wowed us with his performance and screen presence. Captain Vikram Batra, a Kargil war hero, is the subject of the film. In the film, Kiara Advani portrayed Dimple, Captain Vikram’s fiancée, and she made us fall in love with her all over again. Shershaah is so excellent that it will undoubtedly awaken your desh bhakht.
Mimi, Kriti Sanon’s film, wowed audiences with its emotional yet powerful tale. The story follows a small-town girl who becomes a surrogate for a foreign couple in order to make money and realise her ambition. When the pair abandons her, she is obliged to tell her family the truth. She also chooses to defy society by raising her child on her own.
