The Top 10 Unique Bollywood Movies to watch during the Corona Quarantine

At the beginning of the year, we had released an episode on the podcast recapping how amazing Bollywood was during the 2010’s & how there is so much to look forward to in 2020. While 2020 has seen some great movies come out, the spread of COVID-19 has effectively put a halt to all social activities which includes going to movies. This means that a lot of us will be spending more time at home than we probably would prefer. All that said, to maximize your time at home with your families or with yourselves (whichever you prefer or are subjected to), we have created a list of the 10 movies you must watch during quarantine. These movies are very diverse, and they are not ranked in any particular order. Also, in this article, we chose to leave off all the movies we referenced in our other article "The Best Bollywood Movies of the 2010 Decade'' & any obvious classics. This list is focused on small movies that may not have made the cut on the other list but are good in their own respect.

The title of this movie implies that the characters will be going on a journey on the screen. Undoubtedly, that is true. However, this isn't your typical run of the mill "journey" so to speak. This journey consists of two dead bodies, a failed marriage, unfulfilled love, and three individuals you would never put in a car together. All that said, this movie is a must watch for exactly those reasons. You will find yourself laughing hysterically, crying profusely, and likely listening intently.

The Sky is Pink (2019)

Critics Score: 6.8

Audience Score: 7.5

Box office Score: 3 (Flop)

BBroz Score: 6.2

Streaming Partner: Netflix

Family Friendly? Duh.

The Sky is Pink is a movie about a person by the name of Aisha Chaudhry. According to wikpedia, “Aisha was born with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). When she was 6 months old, she had to undergo a bone marrow transplant.[4] As a side effect of the medical therapy following bone marrow transplant, she developed a serious illness called pulmonary fibrosis – a type of condition that causes irreversible scarring of the lungs.”[5]. The movie is narrated in a riveting fashion by the character playing Aisha Chaudhry as a teen & it describes her life from her perspective. The story describes, quite admirably, the love story of her parents, and how the family processed Aisha's diagnosis. The beauty in this movie lies in its uniqueness in narration. A must watch, for sure.

OMG – Oh My God! (2012)

Critics Score: 8

Audience Score: 8.1

Box office Score: 8 (Super Hit)

Family Friendly? Absolutley

Have you ever had an insurance company deny a natural disaster claim because the natural disaster was deemed an "act of god"? Also what even classifies as an "act of god"? And if you can't sue the insurance company for your damages, can you sue God for them? And if in the court of law you are successful in suing god, how will god pay you? Although none of us are asking these questions, because we likely have a thing called "comprehensive insurance" and clauses that include water & ice damage, that wasn't the case for Paresh Rawal in this comedy. If any of those questions piqued your interest, this movie will pique your interest even more.

Good Newwz (2019)

Critics Score: 6.25

Audience Score: 7.2

Box office Score: 7 (Hit)

BBroz Score: 6.89

The chances of a successful IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) is 39.6% for women under the age of 35. The chances that a couple has their last name mixed up with another couple that happens to be visiting the same place to get their IVF done, and then both couples getting pregnant and having the DNA of the other embedded in their soon to come child has to be close to, if not at 0%, right? Well, this movie hilariously captures that precise scenario, just in case you were wondering.
