Ranking no 1 in our list of best indian movies of 2017 is Newton. It was the sleeping giant of 2017 which made a great impact on box office and the viewers. Newton revolves around the story of Newton Kumar, a government clerk sent on election duty to a Naxal-controlled town in the conflict-ridden Chhattisgarh, who must get everyone to vote.Newton is no hero and his weakness are as daunting as the tasks he is entrusted with. The villagers’ lives, shown in a perfect way.It perfectly shows it’s isolation from urbanism. In the film Newton finds himself to be completely at odds with the very people he is supposed to serve that his ironclad sense of right and wrong suffers a heavy blow. Rajkummar Rao the protagonist perfectly

depicts the emotional implosion.The film is a deserving candidate for India’s Oscar bid.
