Underrated Movies are less in identification but more of excellence. The streaming networks have immense movies that are worth a shot of your valuable time. Bollywood in a given year delivers endless film, which, as per-searches are almost 1000 and above, that also includes some of the hidden gems that we miss and went unnoticed. Netflix India has some exciting projects lined up for 2020, but in the big hub of Netflix and some other streaming giants, we have a list of movies for the viewers to consider watching, which are not popular as others. This post is informative about some of the underrated film, which is content-driven, evolving about some of the reality in society and has something for you to take after finishing the movie.
Ugly is a story about greed and selfishness. A struggling father, a bad cop, a cunning wife, a selfish brother, and then the death of a baby child brings in the concept of Ugly for the talented director Anurag Kashyap. Undoubtedly, a story that is brilliantly written and very well executed by the makers. The plot, in short, is about a baby girl who goes missing suddenly, and then the mystery continues. Ronit Roy, as the cop in the movie, has given a fantastic performance like he has been doing it in his other films. Streaming on Netflix, Ugly is a definite watch.
Sameer is about a series of bomb blasts taken place in different parts of India but later proves to be a different concept which happens towards the end of the film. The very talented Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub is, without a doubt, perfect with his role as the primary suspect behind the blasts. The movie hasn’t received a great response from prominent media critics, however, looking from the viewers’ perspective, I would designate Sameer as a one-time watch which is available on NetFlix and one of the underrated Bollywood movies.
Union Leader is a story about an ordinary man, living a family life who has many financial difficulties. Rahul Bhat, as the lead in the movie, works in a factory where the labours are not being treated well and are being bound to use outdated tools for factory works. The machines have caused a lot of individual’s life which has led to death or severe health issues. In such a worst scenario, the leader of the labours is not helpful; therefore, a new Union Leader is being selected by the factory worker to solve all the problems of the labours. The movie can be seen in Prime Videos.
Bhouri was a big failure at the box office; however, its story was something fresh and new to watch. The story revolves around the life of a 23-year-old Bhouri who is married to a person who is much older than her. An Indian social drama, showing the presence of women in rural India, set with social conflicts. The beauty of Bhouri becomes a curse for her and living in a male-dominating surrounding; many people see her with lust on their eyes. Desire can be dangerous and can cause death, which can lead to the disappearance of a soul. Bhouri can be found on Prime Videos and Netflix.

Halkaa is somewhere related to the story of Toilet-Ek Prem Katha, which is one of the best Akshay Kumar movies to stream. A story about a kid from a slum area who doesn’t like to defecate in the open hence finds out ways to evacuate the waste materials from his body in an isolated place.
The movie has a lovely message to convey and has been executed firmly without any unnecessary extra touches. A film which is all about bonding, knowing your kids, friendship and willingness to do something without failing in between the huddles coming your way. The ratings are not high has it should have been, but after catching up with Halkaa, I would recommend it a good one and a sure shot watchable underrated movies on Netflix.
Tumbbad another brilliant movie that didn’t get a lot of recognition. The film had less promotion due to which it went missing by movie-buffs.
The story revolves around greed and a curse to a family that has been going on for ages—an excellent piece made by the makers that will not make you fall into boredom.
Tumbbad reviews were mostly up to the mark, and IMDB gives it an 8.3/10.
The movie is available on Prime Videos.

Mod is a romantic-based movie, which was the second attempt of Nagesh Kukunoor after the brilliant Dor.
Ananya ( Ayesha Takia), living in a hilly station, supports her family by running a small watch repair store. Life for her becomes miserable when she meets Andy (Rannvijay Singh), who claims to be her classmate, and they bought fall in love. In the later part of the film, she finds the real Andy is dead some years back, and the person claiming to be Andy is an inmate at the local mental institute.
Rannvijay probably gives one of his best performances in the film, which proves his skills in acting.
Mod can be found in JIOCIINEMA.
Shahid is a story about a man who falls to be a victim of the riots in Bombay. Later, he joins a terrorist group in Kashmir but runs from the place after witnessing an execution. He then gets sentenced for seven-year imprisonment for an alleged conspiracy to assassinate some politicians. After being acquitted of the charges, he then starts to study law in Mumbai. Towards the latter part of the film, he finds love but later get’s shot for picking up the case of the accuse in the 2006 Mumbai train bombings.
Rajkumar Rao gives a hell of a performance as Shahid and wins hearts with his acting. The makers deserve a loud shout for bringing in a fantastic movie Shahid to the audience.

Sikandar is about a young 14-year-old school kid who finds a gun lying on the road and picks it up despite been warned by his friend. The picking up of the weapon becomes a trouble-some for the little kid. Towards the latter part, he falls to be a victim of a game being played between militants, the army, the peace bartering politicians, and the religious heads of the Kashmir. The end of the movie gives a shocking revelation.
Trapped is the solo show of the lead Rajkumar Rao. The movie is straightforward and short; however, the way it was made undoubtedly leaves you awestruck with the acting and the presenting of the film. Many have unnoticed this dynamic piece, which falls to be one of the underrated movies and can be stream on prime videos.
11. Yeh Saali Aashiqui
Vardhan Puri is at its best in the movie and deserves to be recognized in the industry for his dedication and continuing the legacy of his grandfather Amrish Puri. Yeh Saali Aashiqui, after it’s released in the theatre, had less of footfalls, but the reviews did come the way of the movie. The plot is about revenge and ditching in love towards the end Vardhan Puri steals the film with his fantastic twist and greatness with his acting skills. Yeh Saali Aashiqui is a sure shot winner in terms of public response and review.
Sanjay Mishra, Vicky Kaushal, Richa Chadda all have done a great job in the film. A story about love, tragedy, casteism, and broken hearts.
The movie starts with two lovers making love in a hotel without knowing that making love can be a curse for them in life.
The movie was applauded with a great response by a big media network. It is very engaging and makes you involved until the very end. Vicky Kaushal excellent acting, Sanjay Mishra always up to the mark, Richa Chadda, one of her very best, and the surprising character of Pankaj Tripathi in between is an add on for the movie.
You can find the movie on Youtube. Its a story about the soldiers at the time of war who couldn’t make it back to their home country India.
Manoj Bajpayee’s acting words cannot define his excellence; he has been proving again and again without disappointing.
The soldier’s been rigorously trying to find a way in the movie to run from the military camp, but has been failing miserably. Towards the later part, they somehow make it to the border and visit their Homeland, India, but in cross-firing lose their life. The ending of the movie brings in a lot of emotions and outrage for our brave warriors.
