India's Best Movie Of The Week (10-15 June 2019)

15 Jun 19 @ 4:43 PM | By GitacharYa

Covering movies from five different languages across India, Pycker has a database of virtually every movie released in a particular week from Tollywood, Bollywood, Kollywood, Mollywood, and Bengali. Not just limited to a single language, here we are presenting India's Best Movie Of The Week, which singles out the one best movie the week has seen across all the five languages.

Hey everyone! One more week comes to an end and we have some amazing films and a few... well not so amazing. Now, it's time for Pycker India’s Best Movie of the Week

Week 24 has seen some great attendance numbers in theatres thanks to Bharat which hit the screens last week. Unfortunately, the highly anticipated horror-thriller Kolaiyuthir Kaalam starring lady superstar Nayanthara got postponed due to an interim court ban. Jump into the table for all the important details in the table below.

India's Best Movie of the Week

Though there are several insignificant releases this week, Telugu Cinema could well be going through a dry week. Even Upendra's I Love You couldn't even get openings. Sapthagiri's Vajra Kavachadhara Govinda is panned by the critics. The unfortunate postponement of Kolaiyuthir Kaalam left only Game Over as the new film in Tamil Cinema.

Except for Megastar Mammootty's Unda, the other release of Malayalam and the Bengali film Thushagni failed to catch popular imagination to such an extent that they are roundly ignored by major critics. Khamoshi starring Tamannaah and Prabhu Deva also faced similar fate but the few reviews it received are overwhelmingly negative. 

Now, fret not. We have two gems this week. One is Unda which tells the story of a group of Kerala policemen who travel from Kerala to the Maoist affected Bastar in Chhattisgarh for the Parliamentary election duty. Sub-inspector Manikandan C.P. played by the terrific Mammooty in probably one of his best roles of this decade in Malayalam Cinema leads the unit in this mission. With an understated but intense performance, the Megastar rocked in the role where he has to shed every last bit of his massive stardom. And boy he did! With such perfection. 

Game Over is a truly game-changing film as our own review called it, and tells the story of a videogame addict young lady who is plagued by the fears that take a toll on her. A multi-layered narration and some extraordinary work from the director, music director, and the cinematographer made this film a one of its kind experience. And then there is Tapsee Pannu who has given her all to bring to life the role of Swapna who not only has to fight internal demons but also a serial killer bent on eliminating her from the earth. 

Considering all aspects of filmmaking, we can say...

Game Over is Pycker India’s Best Movie of the Week. 

Best Movie of the Week - Game Over
Best Movie of the Week - Game Over

Give a big hand to Ashwin Saravanan and his team which includes A. Vasanth (cinematographer), Ron Ethan Yohann (music director), and Tapsee. 

Recommendation: Mammootty's masterclass Unda is a movie not to be missed though it narrowly missed out on the honor of being Pycker India's Best Movie of the Week.
