The Hindi movies which I have included in my list are less flamboyant, which has quality over quantity and prevails excellence of Hindi Cinema.
These movies I consider to be hidden gems of Bollywood, that haven’t received much recognition but surely are a worth watch.
Few of the movies might be slow and will lead to boredom, but from a movie buff perspective story is what makes a movie complete. So let’s dive into a few of the best Hindi movies on Netflix to stream
The movie revolves around 3 friends. Who wants to build a start-up but in between a clash takes place due to which they split their path.
The end brings them back together and they listen to what they always wanted to do, not what others want them to do in life.
You can certainly relate the story to TVF PITCHERS, however, it’s a bit different than the web series of TVF. I simply loved the way how Bangalore was portrayed in the movie as a heritage for a big startup.
If the rating does matters then IMDB gave the movie a 6.6/10, but in my understanding of the movie. I think it deserves much better therefore I go with 4.5/5 and consider the movie as one of the best Hindi movies on Netflix to stream.
2. DO PAISE KI DHOOP CHAAR AANE KE BAARISH
The movie is slow, however it has a story to tell its audiences.
The story is simple and evolves about two individuals in which one is a sex worker and the other is gay.
They both share with each other about their part of the story and help themselves emotionally to overcome their problems. If you are looking for something sensible to watch then you may consider watching this one.
3. I AM KALAM
Movies that contribute to depict a moral lesson are extremely uncommon, but when these movies reflect their stories on large screens, they somewhere leave a solid impact on the viewers.
The movie itself retains a special place in society by portraying the name of one of the most well-known leaders of India-Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.
The Film Essentially stressed upon the necessity of education for every child and also justified the famous saying -whenever there Is a will there’s a way.

A love story erupts where a guy loves the family’s daughter but the challenge is he is unemployed living in the same locality.
The plot is unique and different, it’s a marathi movie but you can watch the movie in hindi on Netflix.
The actors have done a commendable job with no traces of overacting on any particular scenes. Great work by Madhuri Dixit, which shows her potential of selecting the right and content driven movie to produce and bring it to the audiences.
5. ALBERT PINTO KO GUSSA KYUN ATA HAI
The society in which we live- The movie clearly depicts what our society is and what we can’t do to improve it is clearly illustrated in this very well made movie.

6. THE SKY IS PINK
The movie might have run for a short time in theatres, but after watching it on Netflix.
I wonder why the movie didn’t get much recognition at the time when it was in the theatres.
The Sky is Pink, is an emotional ride and brings in the feelings of a family who faces endless hurdles to upbring their child.
A family who had a heart break incident at the time when they had their first child and had to go through many problems with their other childs to ensure their well-being. The movie is based on true events and is undoubtedly a watchable pick in our list of best hindi movies on Netflix.

8. GAME OVER
If you are someone who loves to play games then this is a sure shot watch for you. Tapsee Pannu in one of her finest acts and is to be applauded for her performances in the movie.
The movie is a thriller based drama , which has high potential to keep you seated until the very end.
9. MY BROTHER NIKHIL
I consider it to be one of the masterpieces of Bollywood. The story is about a brother who is being diagnosed with HIV positives and is being rejected by the society. His sister and brother come in his support to fight with the rejections.
Emotions can’t be expressed, but can be felt. My Brother Nikhil will make you weep if you are someone who is very much emotional. The list will be incomplete if I don’t include this movie in my list of best hindi movies to stream on Netflix.
10 MERE PYARE PRIME MINISTER
Few movies which are brilliantly made receive less of public attention.
Mere Pyaare Prime Minister is one such movie that deserves much better responses than some of the other Bollywood hits, which has nothing different but a big star cast makes it a superhit.
I am thankful to the video streaming platform which brings in some hidden gems of Bollywood in public attention and thanks to social media for making few of the movies receive its actual place.
Defecation is a major concern of our country. The plot in shot is about a mother who stays with her kid in the slums of mumbai.
The slum does not have proper toilet facilities therefore she goes out to defecate and falls to be a victim of rape. Her kid gets to know about this horrifying incident and in return he writes a letter to the Prime Minister to build a toilet in his area.
11. NIL BATTEY SANNATA
Mother is an important person in our lives, who doesn’t share her emotions with us but can reach upto any extent to fulfill their kids’ requirements.
A story about a mother who tries her best to make her daughter realize the importance of education in her life, but her daughter doesn’t have any interest in studies.
A heart- touching story, about a mother who dreams big for her daughter. Something, different and a refreshing content to stream.
The movie hasn’t got a good rating by biggies, however, I consider it one of the best Hindi movies to stream on Netflix.
The ending might have been a bit confusing, but my understanding states it wanted to convey a message. The plot is about a bombing, and police arrest Sameer in the involvement of the bombing. Later, it’s been found Sameer is not the actual person behind the bombing, therefore police seek the help of Sameer to get hold of the actual culprit.
The latter twist shocks and makes one wonder that the bombing was a plan from the state administration.

The movie tickles and will give you the joy of a ride-a comedy and a romantic based drama movie.

19. LOVE AND SHUKLA
A family all staying together under one roof, but the challenge is the newly married couple who finds it difficult to love each other, to talk to each other, and to make one feel comfortable interacting with each other.
Love and Shukla is a typical middle-class family story that lives together under one roof. The boy of the family marries a girl, where he can’t find peace to talk to his wife and spend some quality time with her as the whole family stays in one single room. Another realistic to witness.
A fantastic act from the lead Rahul Bhatt. Unfortunately, the actor has very few movies in his kitty and hasn’t been recognized for his brilliant work on most of his movies.
The plot is about the products that have been used in the factory, which are outdated and are taking away the life of the laborers. A leader stands to fight for the labors of the factory.
What makes it unique is the storyline and how it is displayed to the audience. The movie haven’t been accepted by the audiences while it was in theatres, maybe due to fewer promotions or fewer numbers of screens. Netflix stepping in to show the movie is brilliant and it’s definitely the best Hindi movies on Netflix to stream.
Few movies, never make it and are hidden somewhere for the viewers to find it. I found all these movies on Netflix, and I consider them all to be the best hindi movies to stream on Netflix.
