The month of April was a treat for movie lovers. F7, Avengers, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, Oh Kadal Kanmani (Tamil), and Court (Marathi) – were the highlights of the month. If April was good, the month of May is far far far better!!! Well, here’s a list of movies that we recommend you should DEFINITELY watch in the month of May.
I was lucky enough to catch this movie during the 16th Mumbai Film Festival. This movie is a work of art, literally. A masterpiece!!!

It’s a fantastic thing for the industry to have such movies released commercially that otherwise is quietly goes unnoticed.

Shoojit Sarkar has an impressive resume – Yahaan, Vicky Donor, and Madras Café. All these films were wonderful and Piku is expected to be the same. The trailer of the movie was refreshing enough. The trio of Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, and Irrfan Khan look convincingly good.
