There were thrillers like Blackmail, romance drama like October, action adventures like Rampage and the obviously the highly awaited Avengers: Infinity war. Even the regional cinema was on a roll with brilliant movies like Nude (Marathi), Subedar Joginder Singh (Punjabi) and Bharat Ane Nenu (Telugu).

Keep your sticky notes, pens, and notebooks ready and make a note:
The movie marks the debut of Shahid Kapoor's younger brother Ishaan Khattar. He is the central character in the movie and certainly a star in the making. The movie, like many other Majid Majidi's work, is a bittersweet portrayal of life. It is a story of desperation, hope, and happiness, unlike anything you’ve seen before.

An atypical love story, October is poignant and soul-stirring. Varun Dhawan has moved away from his "hero" avatar for this one and have given an impeccable performance. This Shoojit Sircar's portrayal and approach towards love makes you fall in love with it. Read more about the movie in the review here.
A comedy thriller, this roller coaster ride of a film is absurd and twisted. Irrfan Khan has singlehandedly carried this movie on his shoulders and it is indeed a treat for the black comedy fans. Read the review of Blackmail here.
Avengers: Infinity War
The biggest cross-over movie ever, Avengers: Infinity War lived up every bit to the hype.
