We definitely want to start the list with SS Rajamouli’s period drama RRR. Why not right? The film is making the nation proud with prestigious awards and western acclaim. In fact, RRR also happens to be the first Telugu cinema to make it to the Oscars 2023 nominations. RRR was released in March 2022, and the period drama stars Jr NTR and Ram Charan as freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Seetharamaraju. It is set in British-occupied India in the 1920s and journals the undocumented period when both the revolutionaries went obscure before they began the fight for their country. It also features Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody, and Olivia Morris.

RRR is a visual treat that is high on patriotism, the cruel British era, visuals, cinematography, great performances, and music.

Major is a tribute to soldiers who fight for the nation to keep everyone safe. The pan-Indian film was loved by audiences with no language barriers for its sincere attempt to salute a soldier. Major definitely promises to bring out all your emotions, from pride to tears. 

Directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka, Major captured the journey of the decorated NSG Commando from childhood till the unfortunate incident where he sacrificed his life in the 2008 26/11 Mumbai attack.  The flick also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Saiee Manjrekar, and Prakash Raj in key roles.
