I usually don’t blog over movies and their review. I like to watch movie to some extent.! The way I like to read true based novels more as compared to fiction, same goes for movies. I am very choosy when it comes to novels or movies or anything. There are many inspiring and eye opener movies like Taare zameen par, 3idiots , Fire and many more. Below you will find the list of five movies which are worth watch , rare , unusual and different from the normal films today.! Actors who have played role are not that famous or popular like Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan or Salman Khan but they did justice to the character of the film and due to stories and their acting the films are worth watch according to me.
This post is a part of the Miss Lovely Activity in association with BlogAdda.
Miss Lovely, an off-beat film directed by Ashim Ahluwalia is set in the lower depths of Bombay’s “C” grade film industry. It follows the devastating story of two brothers who produce sex horror films in the mid – 1980s. A sordid tale of betrayal and doomed love, the film dives into the lower depths of the Bollywood underground, an audacious cinema with baroque cinemascope compositions, lurid art direction, wild background soundtracks, and gut-wrenching melodrama. Miss Lovely is scheduled for commercial release on 17 January 2014.
So here goes the list which I truly recommended to watch , If u have missed or not aware of such movie at all.
The story revolves around a Muslim man named Aamir Ali, who by profession, was a doctor returned from the UK. He had decided to visit INDIA, his hometown and enjoy a few days with his small family.

Soon he came to know that his family was kidnapped by a Muslim extremists and in turn to save his family, he had to help complete the mission of the extremist. In the end, Aamir lost his life to save hundreds of people travelling in the bus. How? Why? When? These questions are coming to your mind, right??? End your quest to know by watching the movie.

INDIA being a democratic country where a human has many freedoms and rights to speak, expressing their views and working according to what they feel is right but under few rules to be followed according to INDIA law. Though INDIA is a free country with diverse cultures and traditions , there are a few shallow minded people who have not come out of their old thinking and In the name of religion, play political games. They spread terrorism to achieve their political needs in the name of the religion. This movie is based on the same topic, where to fulfill their goals, Islamic terrorists use a common Muslim man to do bomblast in one of the crowded place in Mumbai. Aamir did as he was told to do, in order to save his family, but when he realized their mission of killing innocent people he instead gave his life to save those innocent humans. The actor who worked for this film was perfect for the role and his acting was commendable.
My rating : ★★★★★ 5/5

4) Jaago :
Jaago movie is based on real life incident. A ten years old girl was raped in Mumbai’s local train by three drunkard’s friends. Actually story starts when a girl named Shruti(movie name) got locked in her school unknowingly and later at night she was finally released. But it was already night and she thought of returning home by train. Soon she boarded train and was alone with few commuters around. Three friends boarded the same train and coach of Shruti.

My opinion: Rape is one of the common crime in India. Everyday i get up in the morning ,i either see a column or an article over it in a newspaper or some news channel showcasing such incident. It’s so awful when we hear such things.! It’s a big shame how a girl’s , women’s security is at a risk. A few months back there was a shocking news where a small baby around six years old was raped in a public toilet!! She was found half naked ,bleeding very badly and was crying in pain. Doctors told that the private portion of the baby has been damaged due to sexual assault or insertion of a foreign object. A six year old who was not even aware what has happened with her. She was just crying out loud, when that **** guy just raped her!! This movie Jaago is based on a true life incident of ten years old girl. Her plea, her cries were just unbearable. See how a man can be so disgusting that he raped a small girl of his daughter age! On front of the cast of the movie, selection done of the actors were good. They did a commendable job. How instead of crying, victim’s mother acted strong and put aside her sorrow and fought for her baby who lost her life because of this incident. A girl is a mother, a child, a sister of someone. Respect them, love them. She is not some toy to be played with!
My ratings : ★★★★☆ 4/5

My opinion: This is a short Film, Just about 15 mins, but it has told a story which will make you feel what humanity is all about. The performance of each actor is good. The story shows how still few human gives importance to a human personally and not his caste or religion. How the Hindu family risked their life to save innocent Jamal and helped him to reach his country back. Also the movie was nominated for the 2005 Academy award for live short film. Do watch it guys, I truly recommend it.
My ratings : ★★★★☆ 4/5
