With current events remaining as they are in the entertainment industry, new, good movies are hard to come by these days. As it turns out, we might all be looking in the wrong section because this Hindi action thriller, Jawan, is so good that it’s blowing the genre out of the water and has a fantastic score on Rotten Tomatoes.

One thing that Netflix has helped us with is embracing movies in different languages and overcoming our fear of subtitles. Suppose you are one of those people still struggling with jumping into other language cinema. In that case, you are definitely missing out, and this fantastic action/mystery/thriller might be the film that helps you get over that hump.
Jawan is a highly recent Hindi film that has only appeared in theatres so far (but here’s to hoping that a streaming service will wake up and pick it up quickly. The movie tells the emotional story of a man’s journey as he tries his best to right the wrongs of the society that he is living in, all while trying to escape his own spotty past.
This high-octane action thriller follows the protagonist as he is on a personal vendetta while trying to hold onto a promise he made years ago. While on this journey, he, of course, crosses paths with a beautiful and brilliant woman who just happens to be an officer, and she is involved in this battle between our somewhat vigilante-esque main character and the diabolical outlaw that he finds himself up against.
