Movies to watch this Sunday or next!

We have received several requests in the last few months, for a list of movies to watch during weekends. So here it is, a small list of the best movies that hit screens in the last 4 – 5 years, in no particular order. 

Jodha Akbar – One of Ashutosh Gowariker’s very best, this epic love tale has romance, great music, good action sequences and award worthy performances. A modern day masterpiece that’ll be watched for decades to come.

Jab We Met – A well-directed date film by Imtiaz Ali, Jab We Met is a delicious treat of fabulous music, comedy and romance. Kareena-Shahid chemistry was electrifying, in what could be their last film together as a lead pair. Kareena as Geet swept all awards, and deservingly so.

Taare Zameen Par – Is one film that could not have been better, Aamir Khan on his directorial debut captained the ship to perfection. The songs made you cry and so did Darsheel, who hardly uttered a word in the first half, relying solely on body language and expressions. TZP is cinema at the best, a must watch for all, preferably with your kids.

Chak De India – Feeling down and out? Don’t worry, watch Chak De. Its an uplifting tale revolving around an underdog coach of the Indian women’s Hockey Team, who single handedly carries his team to World Cup glory on the international stage. Good music, great ensemble cast, gripping plot et al Chak De rocked the nation and remains to this day the unofficial sports anthem.

A Wednesday – Short on time? Watch this fast-paced 90 minute thriller, with plenty of twists and turns, great dialogues, flawless direction.. all this while you watch Naseeruddin Shah – rooted to the chair for two thirds of the film – deliver one of the best performances of the year. Must watch!

Lage Raho Munnabhai – Nothing much to say here, we have all seen it, we’ve all loved it. Watch it multiple times, you’ll still end up enjoying it every time. Hirani at his best.

Rang De Basanti – Outstanding would be an understatement for this Rakeysh Om Prakash movie. Unpredictable till the very end with a message for the youth. If your one of those who missed this, go watch it now!

Iqbal – Under-rated but one of the best sports films ever. A film that gives you hope, belief and so much more. Iqbal is more than a film, its an experience that should not be missed.

No Entry – If mindless comedy is what you love, you can’t go wrong with this Anees Bazmee film. Anil Kapoor’s fab performance itself is worth the price of the DVD!

3 Idiots – Is one film, we got it all wrong. Infact, the characters that we outright hated – Veeru Sahastra Buddhe (Boman Irani) – is now (after 5 viewings) our pick for the best character in the film along with Chatur (Omi Vaidya). Those expressions by Boman Irani should have been immensely hard to get-right with such consistency through the making of the film. So yes, given a choice we’d love to re-rate 3 Idiots which apart from the silly delivery scene, has immense repeat value and a great message to boot. Fun watch.

Do post your very own list of films to watch during weekends, below in the comments section.

Note – This article has nothing to do with stars and we have intentionally not highlighted any of them. So avoid star-related discussions here.

    Big Brother,
    Kya Love Story Hai, or

    Why not? I beleive these movies were better than Jodha Akbar, aA Wednesday, Lago Raho Munnai Bhai, Iqbal, and No Entry. Take my advise. Reconsider what you wrote down as the main movies to watch because, not only did the movies i list get a better look worldwide but, there are laso movies right now that are worth watching. For exmaple, Life Partner, Singh is Kinnng, Do Not Disturb, and Veer.
