It is possible to argue that how we consume our content has dramatically changed in the last few years. Since the advent of Over the Top (OTT) streaming platforms, the need to wait for movies to be released every week was no longer necessary because we were devouring more and more content from the comforts of our home. While there is always some debate about which is superior but we live in a world in which OTT platforms and movie theatres are in close proximity. This made me think. Although I still love watching a film in a big thereafter, it is difficult to imagine having seen all the movies I’ve seen without Netflix. The films that could not have had a good theatrical run or would not have been released in many regions of the world. Netflix has allowed movies to be more easily accessible.
When I was asked to compile an inventory of the top films available that are available on Netflix India, I decided to go with the standard route of having to include films like Schindler’s lists, Forrest Gump and The Social Network (all great films that you should check out if you’ve never) I wanted to make a list of excellent Indian and Foreign films that I would have never seen had it not been because of Netflix. The list contains Netflix originals, films which were unnoticed at the time it was released, as well as films that weren’t available at the time. Let’s look — not in any particular order — at 25 amazing gems available on Netflix which you can’t find anywhere else:

I must confess. Even though the film was in the spotlight because of its controversial nature following its huge run at Cannes and was expected as an Oscar popular, yet it was not even considered in India I haven’t was able to see it. The recent passing of Irrfan Kharbanda made me go to the theater and immediately regret not having seen it prior to now.

Thanks for Vijay Sethupathi whose role as Shilpa made the most of this ensemble.

Unmissable.
The creative Safdie Brothers, it is yet to be understood the reason Uncut Gems was not chosen in the Oscars earlier in the year.
