The relatability factor in actors is something that we have been discussing on our portal for the past couple of days. Yesterday, as we celebrated Shefali Shah’s birthday by recalling some of her most iconic performances, the conversation progressed. It is indeed a very big superpower to be a person who is not a civilian, but also has the qualities of one and is maximum relatable to everyone around on the screen. It is not easy to enact life and the most detailed part of it with finesse in front of the camera. Today, as we continue to talk about the factor and marvel over the ones who possess it, we are here to talk about an actor who has aced it for decades now. Manoj Bajpayee is an actor who has given us some of the finest performances in Indian cinema. 

The actor who made Bhiku Mhatre eternal is also the man who became The Family Man, he is also the man who fights from the shadows in Bhonsle. Now, the actor is all set to come to us with a film called Bhaiyyaji which is all set to hit the big screen this coming Friday. The trailer of the same has impressed everyone and we are super excited to see him in this new avatar. But before we get on to booking the tickets for the new flick, we do need some revision of sorts so we know what we are signing up for. Of course, the feature films are time-consuming as we do not have much time left. So let's look at some short films.

Manoj Bajpayee over the years has starred in some incredible short films and they are available across the platforms. So today as we are living in anticipation of the release of Bhaiyya Ji, let's catch up with some of the finest short films that the star has acted in.

Manoj Bajpayee Starrer Short Films On Streaming

Ouch (2016)


Streaming on: Lionsgate Play

Manoj Bajpayee and Neeraj Pandey have an actor-director chemistry that is quite unique. In a story about infidelity, the two bring so much edge that there is a chaotic but streamlined exploration of what it looks like when everything is about to fall. A man meets his girlfriend that whom he has an outside marriage with in a hotel room. Right when they were successful just like all the other times, hell breaks loose on them and now they need to save themselves. Manoj Bajpayee is a treat to watch in this short and you can watch this one with your OTTplay Premium subscription.

Kriti (2016)

Streaming on: YouTube

What is real and what is imagination? Sirish Kunder in his short film explores this with so much blurriness that you will be confused but satisfied by the end of it. The story that has a man falling in love again with a woman named Kriti in conversation with his psychiatrist Kalpana. But everything about his love and its setup is so mystique that you will be spooked by most of it. But what is the reality? Go find out.

Taandav (2016)

Streaming on: YouTube

Devashish Makhija and Manoj Bajpayee are a match made in heaven. The partnership began here with Tandav. A story about a havaldar who is having a bad day. His wife is upset, his daughter is not on talking terms, friends feel he cheated them and a night duty to look over the preparations for Ganpati Visarjan. What happens when a man is pushed from all possible directions? How does all the anger vent out? The way Bajpayee breaks into something which turns out to be a way he is taking it all out is a performance only an actor as seasoned as him can give.

Jai Hind (2017)

Streaming on: YouTube

Starring Raveena Tandon with Manoj Bajpayee after 14 long years, we see a couple on a late-night bike ride discussing a perfect date. Little do they know they are about to see their worst nightmare in real life. A car hits them and she is left heavily wounded. In no time you realise the world is of all white people and they are rude to this brown couple. Jai Hind looks at how Mumbai would look in 2015 if we had never got independence. It is haunting and horrific and you will be left thanking your stars.

Bhaiyya Ji will hit the big screen tomorrow. Stay tuned to OTTplay for more information on this and everything else from the world of streaming and films.
