But do you remember how many times you've read or heard about regional cinema? Probably not much. But that doesn't mean there's not much happening in that sphere.

    With so much happening in cinema all over the world, this is probably a good time to look beyond mainstream Bollywood and Hollywood and explore more. And the good thing is, you don't even need to look too far. There are some amazing regional movies being made in India itself.

    1. Thithi




    This is the Kannada film the likes of Anurag Kashyap and Aamir Khan have been urging the audience to check out. Of course it adds to the fact that it even won the National Award for best film in Kannada, apart from various other international awards as well. Thanks to this film, director Raam Reddy even made it to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list of achievers. But what made the film so special and stand out? The film is a dramatic comedy and a satire on poverty in the country. The movie shows how three different generations of sons react to the death of the oldest man in their family. The film has been appreciated not only by critics, but even by the audience. It's the film's realistic treatment and subtlety which makes it stand out.

    2. Bela Seshe



    The moment you hear the cast of this Bengali flick, you know you're in for some splendid performances. There's Soumitra Chatterjee, Rituparna Sengupta, Swatilekha Sengupta and more! The film is a beautiful family drama and will keep you engrossed throughout and really make you think. After almost 50 years of marriage, an old couple announce their decision to get divorced to their three kids. What follows is a beautiful journey of rediscovering the institution of marriage. While the husband thinks that the wife is dependent on him, he realises after a while that it's actually him who can't do without her. The film is definitely a must watch for the youth.

    3. Labour Of Love (Asha Jaoar Majhe)



    Here's another gem of a movie from Bengali cinema. Apart from winning two National Awards, the film has also swept away numerous international film awards. Directed by Aditya Vikram Sengupta, the film is definitely one of its kind in cinema history. Running 84 minutes long, the film actually has NO dialogues! Which sounds insane. But despite that, the film has won accolades all over, which proves itself just how perfect the scenes and detailing must be in this one. The film encompasses the daily life of a man and woman, and just how mundane their routine is. They don't even get to see each other all day because their work timings are different. The film actually mirrors the harsh reality of the lives of the lower middle class in our country and how people can actually be together despite even spending any time with each other. Moreover, the way Aditya Vikram Sengupta has directed this one without any dialogues is just path-breaking.

    4. Praktan



    Starring two of the most talented actors in Bengali cinema - Prosenjit Chatterjee and Rituparna Sengupta, Praktan is a beautiful tale entwined with human emotions and how those emotions can affect your life. The film released just a month back and has already become the biggest ever Bengali film release. That should say a lot about it! The film beautifully depicts how moving on can be tough but important at times, and how sometimes you really can be terribly wrong about relationships. A woman comes face to face with her ex husband's current wife and daughter and in that duration, she learns a lot about where she went wrong and how moving on is the best option for her. This one's a real mature take on love which the urban youth must watch.

    5. Sairat



    Well, the film is already so hugely popular that whatever I say about this one is not enough. The film's actors are actually no mainstream stars, you might already know that. While the actress, Rinku Rajguru was a 9th class student when she started on the film, the lead actor, Akash Thosar, is a new name in the Marathi film industry, and is all of 23 years, still pursuing his studies. What stunned the entire industry was the fact that director Nagraj Manjule got these two newbies with no filmy background at all and made this stunning film which became the highest grossing Marathi film ever. The movie captures the tale of young love, how young kids from different castes and classes fall in love with each other and how that difference doesn't let them be together. A lot of youngsters would be able to relate to this one since it's set in contemporary times and the characters and the feel of the movie is very real.

    6. Court[/h][h=3]
    guardian
    Starring mostly newcomers and non actors, this Marathi film was India's official submission to the Oscars last year. That should say it all! Directed by debutante director Chaitanya Tamhane, the film can be described in a nutshell as a courtroom drama, which shows the trial of a folk singer in a Mumbai court, who is being tried for inciting a man's suicide through his songs. And unlike the numerous dramatic courtroom scenes which we've seen in Hindi movies, Court is nothing like it. In fact, the entire movie in itself is a metaphor which brings to light the corruption, inequality and injustice prevalent in the country. And all this is portrayed without any over-the-top drama and with much realism and subtlety.

    7. Punjab 1984

    Thanks to Udta Punjab, Diljit Dosanjh is a nationwide name now. Apart from being a great singer, he has also proved that he is a great actor, and his Punjab 1984 reinstates the fact. The period drama is based on the 1984-86 Punjab insurgency and concentrates on its effects on a mother and her son, and brings to life the pain of all those who lost their loved ones in the tragedy. Both Kirron Kher and Diljit have done a great job in this one and have even won accolades for it. Even though it is a highly sensitive subject, director Anurag Singh manages to make a convincingly amazing film on it.
