3. section 375

The movie didn’t receive the collection which it deserves. Overall the rating of the film comes towards the way of the makers, which shows to be positive. Section 375, Akshaye Khanna, is brilliant with his role as a lawyer. 

The movie showcases a woman said to be accused and allegedly raped by a filmmaker, and then the court room drama starts with the two major leads Richa Chadda and Akshaye Khanna.

The movie keeps you engaging and makes you wonder as to whom to believe and whom not to up until, as usual, the end of the film discloses the reality.

Section 375 is available in the prime videos app, which falls to be one of the best Hindi movies to stream in the lockdown period

4. bhavesh joshi

The movie couldn’t recover its budget, however, going by the presentation and the making of the film. I, without a doubt, rate the movie as one of the best Hindi movies to stream.

             The story is about three friends evolved in bringing in the wrongdoing and the corruption happening within the city on their youtube channel. As the story continues, all three friends split when they get jobs of their own choices in their respective fields. However, one of the friends gets self-obsessed with the task of bringing the wrongdoing to the public. 

             His obsession with the task takes away his life while cracking alleged problems happening with water in one of the local vicinity. After, the death his friend takes over, and from there, the story continues to bring justice for his friend’s incomplete task.

              Bhavesh Joshi got a positive response, but the audiences didn’t except the movie at the time when it was released in theatres.

The movie can be seen on Netflix.

5. Article 15

Article 15 mostly speaks about discrimination bases religion, race, caste, sex, or place of birth.

The movie is slow; how ever, the investigation which happens at the time of three teenage girls who went missing reveals a lot of harsh and disturbing part of the society. 

Ayushman Khurana as always seems to be not disappointing with his selection of movies and is terrific in his new avatar of a police officer.

The movie gets the right word of mouth from prominent media critics as well as the viewers also accepts the film with positive reviews.

The film is available on Netflix

6. The Sky is Pink

The movie came and went without much of people’s interest to hit the theatres to watch the film.

It’s a masterpiece with excellent direction by Shonali Bose. The movie is based on the life of a couple who faces a lot of challenges while upbringing their daughter. Many tragedies take place in the life of the couple, an example of such an incident would be the death of their first child after birth due to severe health issues. The story continues with their third child, who again faces health issues, how the couple will be dealing with all of these ups and downs of life is what the film highlights in its content.

The movie couldn’t recover its budget; however, it did deserve to be appreciated, which came in the form of positive reviews and receiving three Filmfare awards nominations.

You can watch the movie on Netflix.

7. Salaam bombay

Salaam Bombay, released in 1988, was one of the most recognized best Hindi movies during that era.

A movie showing the emotions of children living in the slums of Bombay.

Mira Nair received many appreciations for making this gem and, to date, has been recognized for her work in Salaam Bombay. 

The actors mostly used were street children in real. They had to undergo specialized training before being cast in the movie.

8. yeh saali aashiqui

It was hard to believe that the movie couldn’t make it to broad audiences and was left with less footfalls in the theatres.

Vardhan Puri undoubtedly gives his best to continue the legacy of his grandfather Amrish Puri but fails to attract audiences. 

Yeh Saali Aashiqui is a revenge saga and is very well made by the makers to keep the interest of the audiences alive with the film.

With excellent reviews and IMDB, giving it an 8.2/10 rating without a doubt brings it in the eyes of the audiences to catch up with the movie in the streaming network of ZEE5.

9. chhichhore

f you miss on chhichhore then I say you are making the wrong decision of not watching it on the Hotstar app.

A story about friendship, family, relationship, and, most importantly, not to be called a loser.

The film carries comedy with emotions in between, which goes hand in hand to make you connected with the subject of the film. 

All the characters fit at the right spot without any padding required. 

The movie was a successful hit in the box office and did recover its budget. Audiences were all deeply involved with the movie to ensure the film receives the ultimate success. 

Critics and major media networks have all given a thumbs up to the movie; therefore, without a doubt, Chhichhore does fall to be one of the best Hindi movies to stream in the lockdown period.

10. swades

The movie didn’t get its spot at the time of its release. Although the budget was recovered, however, it deserves much better recognition than it is getting now after the movie came out of the theatres. 

A story of an NRI returning to his motherland to visit his childhood caring nanny who somehow lost in contact with him. In his stay, he witnessed many social issues that still persist in his homeland that are basis caste, religion, and color. 

The film is a cult classic of Hindi cinema, and the music of A.R.Rahman is an add on for the film.

IMDB gives it an 8.2/10, and so is one of the other movie review sites rottentomatoes.com.

11. 13b

A cult horror or rather I should say a suspenseful Horror flick. 

R Madhavan is brilliant as a lead in the film.

The story, in short, is about a family who shifts to a new flat, and then many suspicious things start taking place.

Behind the suspicious things, we have a story to witness which at one moment you can predict but towards the later part the story its changes which brings in suspense at its best. 

Many might have been unfamiliar with the movie, but this is a definite winner to make you seated at the comfort of your sofa and enjoy it with friends or family. 

13B can be found in Hotstar or Jio Cinema.

12. Hichki

Rani Mukherji deserves to be applauded for her brilliant performance in the film. 

The story lies about a teacher who supports her students, especially those who are week in studies and come from a low background.

Kudos to the makers for putting up a great movie in front of the audience.

All praise to the lead Rani Mukherji, who gave her best in terms of acting, and there is no questions of disappointments. 

You can stream the movie on the prime videos app.

13.Gang of Wasseypur.

Talking about the best Hindi movies to stream, then I think the list would be incomplete without adding Gang of Wasseypur in the catalog.

Those who know about the story I think the story needs not to be disclosed. 

All the actors are at there best in the film, giving an edge of a seat performance, making viewers forcefully praise their work in the movie. 

The movie gave a break to many newcomers like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rajkumar Rao, and Pankaj Tripathi. 

The movie is available on the primevideos app and many other streaming networks.

If you are looking for a solid suspense film, then without a doubt tune into ANDHADHUN, which can be seen at Netflix. 

Sriram Raghavan has been continuously impressing audiences with his movies and making the viewers force to catch up with his films.

Some cult movies of the talented director are Ek Hasina Thi, Johny Gaddar, Badlapur. 

Tabu brilliantly portrays the negative character ensuring nobody else could have done it better than her. 

Therefore, in the lockdown period, enjoy ANDHADHUN on Netflix.

15. Wazir

The movie length is small; however, it has brilliant acting by both the lead Farhan Akhtar and Amitabh Bachchan. 

The plot is about getting redemption and how the suspense continues will make you wonder, and towards the end, the twist is fantabulous. 

The movie got raving ratings from prominent media networks.

It was the 2016 first release directed by Bejoy Nambiar and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

16. ugly

Anurag Kashyap makes movies that are surely worth a watch. Ugly is a suspense thriller based on people’s cunningness and every character running for money without showing any concern for a child. 

The movie starts off with a girl child missing, following which every character in the film starts searching for the girl child missing. 

Ransome, kidnapping, torture and mind game is the vital part of the film. 

The film will keep you evolving to know what is about to come up next, but never the less Ugly is surely a watchable one that can be stream on Netflix.

17. a wednesday

Greatness at its best and robust and intense acting by the leads will make you fall for A Wednesday. 

If Anupam Kher gives his excellence in acting, Naseeruddin Shah, on the other side, ensure to steal the show. 

From the start, an intense scene will make you glued on your seat and keep you involved until the end.

The end will make you applaud, and the last 20 minutes dialogue delivery by Naseeruddin Shah will make you realize what a sudden twist.

18. rang de basanti

The list will be unfinished if an Aamir Khan movie is not included in the list as one of the best Hindi movies to stream.

Rang De Basanti is all about fighting against the system and the corruption happening within the country.

A revenge saga for the death of a friend, which is mostly about spreading a message to the public that nothing is perfect; it’s we who have to unite to make it perfect.

At the time of its release, the movie holds a record of breaking many box office collections, and many praises came towards the way of the film.

19. bajrangi bhaijaan

One of the best movies of Salman Khan is Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

The movie, in short, is about helping a little girl to commute her back to her hometown Pakistan from India. 

Bajrangi, played by Salman Khan, helps her to take her back to her hometown, who in between faces a lot of obstacles and hurdles. 

The movie towards the end brings in tears portraying a message that love can fade away the distance between the two enemy countries, which is India and Pakistan.

Without a doubt, it’s a sure shot watch for all movie lovers in the lockdown period.

20. Rann

You might be shocked to see Rann in my list of best Hindi movies to stream. 

Before watching the movie, I preferred to check the reviews of the critics, and it was stunning to see that Rann didn’t receive good reviews from critics. However, by the audience’s response, I thought of watching the movie but was hesitating as it was a Ram Gopal Verma movie.

This is unquestionably among the greatest movies I’ve watched. People who are in search of some realistic and sensible picture can switch to Rann, which can be found on the primevideos app.

Something new to witness along with a new concept for viewers to watch. 

All three major characters, Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, and Irfan Khan, are excellent with their respective roles.

A beautifully scripted movie with a great storyline. 

An entertaining movie, which will keep you giggling throughout the film.
