5 Fantastico Off-beat Indian Films

I like Off-beat movies as they try to show the reality. They show day to day issues of a common man which he/she faces. Five, fantastico off-beat movies which I like the most are:

1. Rockford


This story revolves around a boy Rajesh Naidu (Rohan Dey), who comes to a boarding school. I enjoyed this movie very much. It was his first boarding school and the movie shows his experiences in the boarding school. I still remember the scene where:

He felt shy when he first time took bath between other boys of the boarding.

A very natural and close to reality what happen in a boarding school.

I loved the music of the film. Specially, the song 'Aasmaan ke Par' by Shankar,Ehsaan and Loy

Director: Nagesh Kuknoor

2. Road, Movie: 


The story revolves around Vishnu (Abhay Deol), who tries to escape his father’s oil business. He takes an old truck and finds out that truck is a moving cinema. This movie is filmed in the deserts of India.

In the movie, he has to show movies daily from the truck to the water lords to keep him alive in the desert. 

Director: Dev Benegal

3. The Lunchbox


This story is based on Mumbai Dabbawala’s. How they deliver lunchboxes to various places in Mumbai. In this movie, the story revolves around Ila (Nimrat Kaur), who is a house-wife and likes to cook food and Saajan Fernandes (Irrfan Khan). The dabba, that Ila sends to his husband starts going to Saajan by mistake of Dabbawalas. See, how they started building up their relationship in this movie.
A very nice movie.
Director: Ritesh Batra

4. Monsoon Wedding: 

The film revolves around Lalit Verma (Naseeruddin Shah), who is trying to organize wedding for her daughter, Aditi (Vasundhara Das) with Hemant Rai (Parvin Dabas). I love this movie as it shows what happens in a typical Punjabi Marriage. Four-day long functions, music, relatives from distant places.

An awesome movie.

Director: Mira Nair 

5. Iqbal:


The story revolves around Iqbal (Shreyas Talpade), who is deaf and mute and who dreams to play cricket for India. His father always discourages him and tells him to become a farmer like him. He his helped by his sister Khadija (Shweta Prasad). Iqbal seeks hep from Mohit (Naseeruddin Shah), who was a former cricketer but now he is all the time drunk. This movie shows how he makes it to the Indian Team with his hard-work, in the guidance of Mohit.

I love this movie as it shows how the hard-work and determination can make you achieve anything.

Special Apperance: Mr. Kapil Dev

Director: Nagesh Kukunoor.

There are many other movies like Hyderabad Blues, Peepli Live, Dhobighat, 3 Walls, Bricklane, Gattu and many more.
