Best Hindi Films of 2018

filmyfool best hindi films of 2018

Another year comes to an end and for me, this has been the break-out year for small films. As I was compiling my list of best Hindi Films of 2018, I realised that there are no big films featuring in it. No Khans, no big budgets, no multi-starrers. Instead, what I have are 10 films which have great story-telling.

However, this time he is experimenting with a completely new genre and seems in a good enough form to prove his point. ... 

No One Killed Jessica Movie Review – The Echo of a Gun Shot

Oh Boy! What a start to the year. I really hoped that this year starts off on a good note but No One Killed Jessica changed all that because it’s not a good film, it’s a great film. The film is on the murder of Jessica Lall, a subject that everyone knows too well and that’s why it was a challenge to make this film.
