5 Offbeat Must Watch Movies

5 Offbeat Bollywood Hindi movies that I would like to recommend are as below:

1. Bazaar: Directed by Sagar Sarhadi, Bazaar was a mission to convey a strong message against girl child selling from India, belonging to poor families, to Outside countries. The movie had most of the parallel cinema actors that became a solid factor to make it more powerful. Actors like Farookh Shaikh, Naseeruddin Shah, Supriya Pathak and Smita Patil in lead roles.

2. Arth: Arth was directed by Mahesh Bhatt in 1982 with a strong cast of Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Kiran Kumar. The movie is about a successful director Inder (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) and his extra marital relationship with Kavita (Smita Patil) that his wife Pooja (Shabana Azmi) comes to know at some point of time. Pooja leaves her husband for cheating her and that is where Raj (Raj Kiran) comes into her life to take her out of her depression phase. A must watch to understand the complex relationship in life and how to manage them in a better way.

3. Shatranj Ke Khiladi: Directed by Satyajit Ray in 1977, Shatranj Ke Khiladi is based on classic tale from Munshi Premchand. Amzad Khan, Sanjeev Kumar, Richard Attenborough, Saeed Jaffery and Shabana Azmi in lead roles. The story is about Wajid Ali Shah and his life filmed around 1857 era. A good to watch movie to learn about Wajid Ali Shah and Awadh.

4. Satyakam: A 1969 movie directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, is based on the novel written by Narayan Sanyal in Bengali with the same name. This classic movie had Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Sanjeev Kumar and Ashok Kumar in lead roles. The story is about a lifelong struggle of Satyapriya Acharya (Dharmendra) for his ideologies and the sacrifices he was forced to make to maintain this.

5. Jajantaram Mamantaram: Directed by Soumitra Ranade, Jajantaram Mamantaram was released in 2003. The story is about Gulliver's travel encounter with Bakasura based on the book by Jonathan Swift. An interesting movie to watch especially by kids.
