3. Sonchiraiya (2019)
A very underrated and underperforming movie, Sonchiraiya was one of Sushant Singh Rajput’s best performances. An immersive dacoit drama set in the harsh, dusty ravines of Chambal in the 1970s, showed him playing Lakhna, the conscience-keeper of this group of bandits.
His character exuded misery, anger, melancholy, and determination - everything that makes you successful to loot and plunder. There is a moment in the film where Lakhna has a vision of his alternate life, which is very emotional. None of us wants to be a dacoit by choice - it is by chance.
And in the end, Lakhna is shot dead by one of his group members only. If you haven't watched it yet, please watch this Sushant Singh Rajput Film now.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s Message to the World
I an interview with NDTV, Sushant Singh Rajput said -
"We need to have an education that helps us to make the right decisions. We need to accept that it is okay to fail as long as we are trying to do something new. It is okay not to repeat the world and not to be careful as long as we are doing something new."
This is perhaps the best ever definition of life we have come across. But unfortunately, an actor par excellence, Sushant Singh Rajput, left us too soon.
It pains our heart that there will not be anyone like him matching his intellect, loyalty, simplicity, acting, and looks. He was gifted, and maybe we didn't deserve him.
As an ode to this gem Sushant Singh Rajput, we must watch all his films and give him his due. We should celebrate his life and works. We should celebrate his films, which were amazing and different!
We love you Sushant and these movies have made you immortal for us. RIP.
