An unnoticed movie with a solid star cast. 

Amitabh Bachchan fulfilling a master stoke twist towards the end, makes Wazir as one of the best suspense movies for moviegoers to consider watching.

An intriguing story with a refreshing view that had very less hype; however, I consider the film needs to be addressed to broader audiences. The film relates to a story about a father and a daughter bonding, a bonding of friendship, a revenge saga that shall not let you feel bored.

A suspense saga based on finding the person behind the death of a wife.

 Anil Kapoor delivers an excellent performance as the prime suspect behind the murder of his wife.

The movie is slow, but it can be considered a one-time watch, among those that can be viewed as a cult suspense drama Hindi movie.

At first, I was curious about whether to watch the movie or not, but later I thought of giving it a try after getting a recommendation from flixjini.
I must admit that it was one of the masterstrokes that you can’t afford to miss. The story is all about claiming an insurance amount after the insurance owner dies, but there is a catch. A clause has been set up to claim the money.
What is the clause for that you need to watch the movie, all I can say is its a Paresh Rawal stellar performance which will undoubtedly win your heart?

Ek Ajnabee is an action thriller suspense drama, where most of the reviews came as unfavorable for the film.

However, I find the film to be engaging with excellent suspense in the end. Big B and Arjun Rampal have done mind-blowing acting to ensure the curiosity to be alive until the end.

The movie is a copy of a Hollywood film, but in my understanding, I believe that despite the film is a replica but still is a considerable watch.

Blank- A highly underrated film, which deserves to get more viewership.

It is a story about an individual who lost his memory and cannot recall how a bomb was found on his chest.

The mystery evolves about finding the main person behind the planning of a terrorist attack- but the end brings in a particular twist, which proves that Blank can be designated as a good Hindi suspenseful flick to watch.

The debutant Karan Kapadia has given a stunning performance, and so did the veteran actor Sunny Deol.
Blank is undoubtedly- a good mysterious film to watch on the ZEE5 app.

With Sunny Deol and Irfan Khan side by side- the movie had some awestriking acting from both of them.It was hard to believe that the film’s ratings didn’t come its way, and many have disliked the film.

I can certainly understand that all individuals won’t carry the same way of judging a film.
In my view, I can consider the film worth a watch because of its engaging content- which keeps you hooked up on your screen until the end.

An excellent thrilling flick, which is about disagreements between two cop, and in the end, Sunny Deol becomes the winner.

A movie that wasn’t in the limelight much but deserves to be appreciated and get more views.


Gupt is one of the most compelling Bollywood thriller movie to watch.
Kajol, bringing in the twist at the end of the film, has all the reason for you to consider watching this epic thriller drama flick.

In the late ’90s- the film had an impressive response from the audiences and was showered with raving words of mouth.

The work of Kajol was rewarded with the first Best Filmfare Villian Award.

27. DON

Don I would say the ending of the film just made the money worth the investment-When I saw the film in the theatres a long time back. 

King Khan gave a thrilling performance and his looks of DON was mind-boggling but there is no comparison with the original. They both are of different leagues and of different taste and flavours.

A good twist in the end brings DON in our list of Best Hindi Suspense films to watch.

Bluffmaster, a cleverly and very well presented film, is a bit slow but has good suspense revealing towards the end.

A story about a person who bluffs everybody but later becomes a part of a game where he gets bluffed.

All leads have done a perfect portrayal of their characters and have nailed it with their performances.

A Wednesday is perhaps one of my favorite Hindi Films- The way how the film keeps you intact with its content is outstanding.

The story doesn’t require any further alterations as it will keep you very well hooked up, and the ending makes the film worth moving.

It is a revenge story and mostly evolving the life of a common man- who is frustrated with all the authorities’ incompetency—a film which I consider to be a must-watch.

Raat Akeli Hai makes us all wonder who could be the person behind the crime. An ideal film to be glued upon with perfect scripting and reliable execution of skillful acting from the talented Nawzauddin Siddique being accompanied by other brilliant star casts.

The film has an explicit tension arising to know who is the real suspect behind the murder. A vital analysis of a movie depends upon the ending of the film.

The film does full justice towards the end and makes logical outcomes to fulfill the viewers’ expectations.

Mohra was one of the blockbuster hit in the late ’90s, and Why shouldn’t it be- the way how the film was presented had all the reasons to gain love from the audiences.

The reason for including the movie in the list of Best Hindi Suspense Movie is the twist by the skillful actor Naseeruddin Shah in the film.

The movie brought in the hit pair of Suniel Shetty and Akshay Kumar in the entertainment world, and ever since then, the trio had appeared in many hits and flop.

Final Words, 

The list will be updated every month- Whenever there is something new which I’ve seen-In the meanwhile I would appreciate if you have any recommendation about Hindi Suspense Movies to be added on the list.
