What makes a film underappreciated? Is it when a film is critically acclaimed but does not receive the attention it deserves? Or is it when only a few people enjoy the film?
Underappreciated films are those that are well worth your time but aren’t on everyone’s list. Maybe it was because they didn’t make as much noise or because it didn’t do as well at the box office!
They could have made a huge impact if they had received greater publicity, but for some reason, they didn’t. If you haven’t already seen them, the films listed below are well worth your time.
1. The Lunchbox – 2013
This love film, directed by Ritesh Batra, is centered on an odd scenario of accidentally exchanging lunch boxes, which leads to the development of an uncommon friendship between the two of them. Despite its box office success, the film was rejected as an Indian entry for the Academy Awards.
The Lunchbox, a touching film starring Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur that was released in 2013, follows a connecting exchange of messages between two people through letters exclusively. It is one of the most underappreciated films of all time.
2. Tamanna – 1997
This film, directed by Mahesh Bhatt, addressed a social issue. It is based on a true tale of a eunuch (played by Paresh Rawal), an abandoned girl (played by Pooja Bhatt). A heartwarming relationship between these two, released in 1998, demonstrates humanity and love.
A good aspect of the third gender might be noticed in those who are perceived as beggars by the general public.
