He could be that carefully framed pic on Instagram to that deadly opinionated Twitter handle or maybe that pop philosophy spitting Facebook page or that revolutionary blog that was created to change the world or just plain drowned into the Audio-Visual black hole “You-Tube”. Daydreaming now has a new address, the world wide web. Dream on! May the force be with the Geek!”

Sanju

Streaming on: Hotstar, Netflix

Director: Rajkumar Hirani

Talking about Vicky Kaushal’s filmography and miss Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju? Impossible. The Rajkummar Hirani directorial saw him in the role of Sanjay Dutt’s dear friend Kamli or Kamlesh Kanhaiyalal Kapasi. Watching him stand by his friend Sanju (Ranbir Kapoor) through thick and thin, left many yearning for a friend like him. His Gujarati accent added the comic element to the movie. But, despite incredible performance from its cast, Vicky Kaushal, Ranbir Kapoor and Paresh Rawal, the film was a flawed biopic.

Manmarziyaan

Streaming on: Eros Now, YouTube

Director: Anurag Kashyap

The Anurag Kashyap film had Vicky Kaushal in the role of a struggling DJ. Also starring Taapsee Pannu and Abhishek Bachchan, the film presented a take on modern-day relationships. It was probably the least violent film that came out of brand Anurag Kashyap.

The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta in her two-star review of the film wrote, “What Anurag Kashyap is doing in Manmarziyaan (one girl, two boys) is inverting the triangle he had set up in Dev D (one boy, two girls), and for a while, we are swept up in the whole Amritsar setting, the Golden temple scenes, the authentic Punjabi tongue, the excellent supporting cast, and, at the heart of it, Kaushal and Pannu’s playing of lovers-who-can’t-live-with-and–without-each-other. What gets annoying too soon is the same pair’s going round and round in circles.”
