10 great Bollywood movies of Indian cinema (Part 2)

3. Magadheera

This is a film with a mythical color about the law of reincarnation. The beginning of the film “Magadheera” is the context of the 1600s, when Mughal ruled over parts of North India. At that time, Kalabhairava (Ram Charan Teja) was the most formidable and most important warrior in the kingdom of Udaigarh. He and Princess Mithra Vinda Devi (Kajal Aggarwal) fall in love, but her cousin Ranadheer Billa (Dev Gill) stops and causes the couple to die.

400 years later, Kalabhairava reincarnated as Harsha (Ram Charan Teja) to meet Princess Mithra Vinda Devi as Indu, while the Billa Ranadheer is Raghveer. Harsha saves Indu from Raghveer’s evil hand and tells her their previous life. At first, Indu didn’t believe him, but when he saw the memories of his past life, she realized Harsha was telling the truth. Harsha finally killed Raghveer and the two were together forever.

4. English Vinglish

No longer confined to the border of India, Bollywood boldly seeks more attractive contexts for its films and “English Vinglish” is a good example of being filmed in the United States.

A traditional Indian woman, Sashi (Sridevi), was despised by her own husband for not having high education and spending all day only at the house to fulfill his duties as a wife and mother. The turning point came when Sashi’s sister invited the whole family to America to attend her grandmother’s wedding. Arriving at the magnificent New York, Sashi inevitably became overwhelmed and decided to join a short-term English class to integrate with everyone here. It was this time to learn English that helped Sashi overcome her inferiority towards her, and at the same time make everyone in the family look more respectful to her and be treated equally.

Having a culture of men and women, English Vinglish is a more open voice about the status of women in modern society. In addition to the humorous and moving segments, the film also appeals to viewers because of the profound human message contained in the film.

Although the story written for this film is good, there are still bad sides about the execution. There is an inconsistency in terms of the film direction and narration. The background music is also too loud and not very suitable for the story. Nonetheless, the casts act very well in this production, with famous stars like Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, Pankaj Tripathi, or Mandira Bedi. The characters seem to be too simple for them to show all of their talent, though.

There will be shocking claims to be told in “The Tashkent Files” about the political world in India history. It also highlights some important social issues and includes sensational contents cleverly.

It is not a movie that has no drawbacks, but it is a worth-watching film that you can learn a lot from, and be excited with the story telling.
