2021 Awards: Movie List! In DCIB World, These Are Our Choices

OTT releases, movies in theaters only some of us saw, it’s all confusing. I’m gonna try to limit it down to the movies that mattered to DCIB world. Let me know if there is something I am missing from the list that you think should be included. I’m looking for movies that a fair number of DCIB people have seen so we can judge them. Oh, and tell me if there is something I should remove because no one really watched it.

  2. I had completely forgotten I had watched Time to Dance. I think it wins by default for me, it’s probably the best Indian movie from 2021 I watched????!!! What was that movie where the hero gets overinvested in the heroine’s teen sister’s sex life?

  3. So this post is to throw all the movies we have in common, both bad and good and then we will chose which one we liked and which we didn’t like?
    Thise are the ones I saw and think others also:
    Ray
    Shiddat
    Meenakshi Sundareshwar
    Sardar Udham
    Sandeep aur Pinki Faraar
    The girl on the train
    Maara
    Master
    Uppena

  4. I didn’t get much chance to watch new releases until I finished moving house in mid-September, so I missed pretty much everything that came out earlier in the year. Besides ones you mention, here are a few that I saw and that others may have gotten the chance to see:

    ’83
    Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui
    Shyam Singha Roy
    Tadap

  5. So far I think my favorites of the ones you’ve listed are Haseena Dillruba and Pagglait. I don’t know if I can choose between the two, but I guess if a gun were put to my head I’d say HD because it’s so different? But I don’t know, Pagglait was also. Mimi I liked but had issues with. Sooryavanshi was whatever.

    However, I’m finally on a bit of a break and on a mission to watch Sherni and Atrangi Re and maybe Sardar Udham if I can squeeze it in, so my vote might change by Sunday.

  6. Of this list, I’ve only seen Atrangi Re and Mimi (so far, I’ve been meaning to watch Love Story forever). But I think Atrangi Re edges Mimi out slightly. Maybe it’s cuz of the communal experience of watching it for the first time with you all. Idk. ❤
