Local Flavours In Recent Times

Bollywood has been an epicenter to showcase the choice of art in cinema, but seeing our history of indian cinema we have some great work in our regional format.

The diversity of India brings us the taste from all around the nation, we connect with regional films not because of language but the simple story which tells us much more about our emotions.

- by Gaurav Ghosh

Here are the list some of the movies in different indian language for you all;

How will the couple handle this tricky situation? and what happens to them at the end? That forms the rest of the story.


5. Super Deluxe

Super Deluxe is a 2019 Indian Tamil-language crime black comedy-drama film with elements of science fiction and fantasy.

Super Deluxe is set over a day and a half and unfolds almost entirely in the daytime across various interior spaces in Chennai. The narrative seems to be playing out about a decade-and-a-half ago(the 2004 tsunami is a plot point), but the pop culture references are from the 1980s. The title is one of the film’s many Easter eggs – it suggests a hyper-real experience that is heaving with known and unknown pleasures.

The off-kilter humour, leisurely pace (the film clocks nearly three hours), and surreal adventures create a world in which nothing much seems to happen but a lot actually does. Kumararaja walked through the world of Super Deluxe during a recent visit to Mumbai. Here are edited excerpts from the conversation.


6. The Last Color

The Last Color is an Indian feature film produced and directed by Indian-American Chef Vikas Khanna.

Set in Varanasi, the holy city of light, The Last Color brings out the dark side of the society. The film attempts to touch upon various issues such as domestic violence, casteism, treatment of transgenders, misuse of power by the police, and so on. With so many issues at hand, at times it feels like the plot has lost its direction. Its major focus is to highlight the plight of widows in some parts of the country, where they are forced to practice complete abstinence after the death of their husbands


7. Asuran

Asuran (transl. Demon) is a 2019 Indian Tamil-language period action thriller film written and directed by Vetrimaaran.

The story revolves around the father and the son and their fight to live in dignity. The father's urge to protect his son and keep him safe makes the movie an engaging affair.

For the uninitiated, Asuran is roughly based on the award-winning book Vekkai, authored by Poomani.


8. Gumnaami

Gumnaami is an Indian Bengali-language mystery film directed by Srijit Mukherji.

The film is based on the Mukherjee Commission Hearings and does a good job of making historical research intriguing and thought-provoking. The film depicts the three theories trying to explain the death or disappearance of Subhas Chandra Bose.

All this with a dollop of whodunnit element to it.

Interesting theories and clues about this throughout the movie.

Why didn’t they do nothing to get him back or did they? Why was the Nehru Government spying on the Bose family, as late as the 1960s, if Netaji had allegedly died in a plane crash on August 18th1945? Why has Netaji been declared a war criminal by Allies and what did the Nehru Government do about it?


9. Professor Shonku O El Dorado (Professor Shonku and El Dorado)

Professor Shanku O El Dorado is a Bengali science fiction thriller, based on Satyajit Ray’s story, Nakur Babu O El Dorado. Professor Shanku (Dhritiman Chatterjee) is a genius scientific inventor and explorer. He decides to explore deep in the jungles of the Amazon, looking for the fabled city of El Dorado.
