A guy’s body parts talk amongst themselves after a heartbreak
I don’t really like writing about films, but now I realised that I wasn’t watching the right films. But are there any right or wrong films though? Yes, there are, the films that becomes an experience is a right film. Period. The film that connects to you and lets you get in touch with your humanity again is a right film for you. Getting in touch with your own humanity is a big relief in this highly complex mechanical world. The film which transcends human boundaries of language and culture and is yet grounded beautifully in its own reality is a right film. It is very subjective. Keeping this in mind, I made a list of 5 movies from last year which I thought were RIGHT! Actually, I had existential crisis after watching them. Apart from making me cry in the theatre, these films stayed with me and I don’t think they will ever leave me again. They will hold my hand and inspire me to take baby steps in the world of film making. Though it is a list, please don’t focus on the rank. I will not write about these films but just attaching the links to the trailers here. I will also tell you my crying duration during the film.
#5 Sudani From Nigeria (Malyalam) (India)
#4- Manto (Hindi) (India)
#3- Shoplifters (Japanese) (Japan)
#2- Roma (Mixtec, Spanish) (Mexico, USA)
#1- Capernaum (Arabic) (Lebanon)

This is my list, please let me know in the comments section which movie made you cry in 2018.
एक रात एक सपने ने ठिठुरते हुए कहा,
एक चादर अपने लिए भी ले आता यार|
