Helmed by Vikramaditya Motwane, this is one under-appreciated gem.
Starring Late Irrfan Khan and Parvathy Thirovothu, Qarib Qarib Single is not a typical Bollywood masala film. The Tanuja Chandra directorial is a classic old school romantic drama which traces the journey of two contrasting personalities.

One of the best works of actor Sanjay Mishra’s career till date, Kaamyaab. Even though the film did not work well at the box-office, critics loved this film which shows the journey of a side actor.
