Starring Kunal Kemmu, Soha Ali Khan, Cyrus Broacha, Boman Irani, Mahesh Manjrekar, Vinod Khanna, Amit Mistry and Simone Singh, 99 captures the Y2K scare and life in a newly-liberalised India. Two Mumbai-based good-hearted crooks (Kunal and Cyrus) run a small but flourishing business in fake sim cards. They are forced into working for an oily loan shark (Mahesh Manjrekar), and recover a bad loan from a hopeless liar (Boman Irani). The film is packed with some hilarious sequences, and showed early promise.
Shor in the City
Streaming on: AltBalaji
With Shor in the city, directors Raj & DK gave us some loveable characters we meet through the film’s narrative and showcased Bombay in its true essence. It featured actors Tusshar Kapoor, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Radhika Apte, Pitobash Tripathy, Nikhil Dwivedi, Girija Oak, Sundeep Kishan and Preeti Desai. The crime saga revolves around its five principle characters who struggle hard to survive in the crime-laden city. Special mention to Sachin-Jigar’s soundtrack.
Go Goa Gone
Streaming on: Eros Now
The Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari starrer can be tagged as a cult film. It was Bollywood’s first attempt at making a film on a zombie apocalypse. It revolved around a rave party where all the guests turn into zombies. With the elements of horror, action and comedy added in just the right quantity, Go Goa Gone is a film that cannot be missed. The witty dialogues and ace performance by the cast make are like icing on the cake.

Saif Ali Khan’s Yudi and Ileana D’Cruz’s Aanchal are like any other couple, who love and annoy each other in equal measure. Both of them are novelists who after spending a passionate time together, part ways. But is that the end of their story or is it the beginning of another journey? In a fast-paced narrative laced with their peculiar urbane humour, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s film has all the tropes of a rom-com. It serves all the fans of the genre well. But don’t enter it with a lot of expectations.

A Gentleman is a stylish film with good looking lead actors, Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez. The action-comedy presents the story of a man in disguise of a plain-simple boring tech guy, played by Sidharth. In her review of the film, Shubhra Gupta wrote, “Some of the proceedings, especially the light-hearted banter between Malhotra and his colleague, played by Hussain Dalal, are fun. And while we are fully OD-ing on the eye-candy on display (there’s ample evidence that Malhotra and Fernandez both possess washboard abs, and other whistle-worthy attributes), we also wish that there was some more comic-book energy in the plot, which keeps sliding and slowing.”
The Family Man
Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

With its taut script, witty dialogues and top-notch performances, it became one of the best Indian web series. It chronicles the life of an intelligence officer Srikant Tiwari who is struggling hard to maintain a work-life balance. The second season of the series released on June 4 after much delay.
