15 Offbeat Hindi Movies With Storylines That Are Considered Taboo

We say we live in a progressive society with the right to express ourselves. Movies are one of the effective mediums to depict creative freedom. Despite our progressive society, there are still some topics that are considered taboo.

Mainstream media seldom talk about these subjects. Although there are some moviemakers dare to produce such movies whose screenplay revolves around the subject of homosexuality and prostitution, but they don’t get the level of exposure to put their words out.

The production and distribution of such movies are limited to a niche audience only. Since the audience size is thin, the sponsorship and budget constraints make it even harder to reach the masses.

Here are 15 such movies that highlight the dark subjects that society don’t openly talk about:



This film which was released in 2015 portrays a lesbian relation. It was barred in most places and took help from multiple protests to uplift the ban.

The Painted House
