Sushanth Singh Rajput sadly died to suicide and all of a sudden gave a shock to even his friends as no one expected to him do so, so early in his life.
He was going through certain issues say some reports and hence, he couldn’t find the strength within himself to continue the fight to survive, it seems.
He had a wish list that envies many and he wanted to become an astronaut too. He decided to help kids with similar dreams as well.
Anyways, we can only live in his memories and give him a tribute by watching some of his good performances or all of them, as he had a very short span of career but did very good films, within the time.
He rose to fame with Pavitra Rishta serial and then got a film like Kai Po Che. Here we have listed some of the memorable films from him.
Best Movies Of Sushanth Singh Rajput
This is his first film and Abhishek Kapoor after Rock On took few Television actors along with him for this medium budget film. It talked about the big dreams of people from the economically middle class.
The kind of competition they face and the prejudice they have to go through even though they are talented. Sushanth as a cricketer, Ishaan Bhatt gave a performance to remember.
Many producers recognised his talent in the film and director, Neeraj Pandey might have watched this film before offering him Dhoni’s biopic. Watch this film, if you haven’t yet.
MS Dhoni – The Untold Story
MS Dhoni is a legend in Indian Cricket. He showed the world what leadership means and how a leader should be. With young teams and senior teams – he won big tournaments by managing each of them, well.
His seniors love him as a player who grew to icon status after learning from them. His juniors tend to learn and respect him, as he gives them the best possible advice he can think off. Such a cricketer got a huge tribute with MS Dhoni – The Untold Story film.
Sushanth Singh Rajput played the role of MS Dhoni and made us believe that he is on-screen Dhoni even when we knew the real Dhoni.
Being able to pull it off is only possible for an actor who is sure about what he is doing and sure about what the end result will be as well. Sushanth had put his heart and soul in the film.
Next important film in Sushanth’s career is Chhichhore. The movie became a surprise blockbuster as many did not expect to be as good as it was prior to the release. Movie ironically speaks about the suicidal tendencies that a person go through at a very young age.
May be he should have watched his own movie as many times as he can before committing suicide. Or may be he was hurt too deep and had too much off anxiety issues that propelled him to do so. Anyways, this film is one of his biggest box office hits and a comeback film after flops like Raabta.
Abhishek Kapoor needed to prove himself as a director after a flop like Fitoor. He took Sushanth Singh Rajput and introduced Sara Ali Khan with this disaster film. Movie is a love story based on the floods of Kedarnath. Sushanth pulled off a village person role in the movie with a lot of ease.
Movie has many discussions about the religion and he gave all of them his own charm, honesty as an actor. It is his performance that made the film not just any other disaster wannabe but a thoroughly watchable flick. Sara earns some brownie points but his character had to click with audiences too big time.
Well, you may think this movie is more about Aamir Khan who plays the alien and Anushka Sharma, who becomes his friend.
Yes, but Sushanth Singh Rajput gives the film an emotional depth that otherwise seems to be more of a discussion on the idea of God and the kind of God, that we tend to believe in and worship.
Because the film cuts to him and tells his story as well, we get the required depth in second half. This might be his film to say so, but he definitely leaves an impression with his performance.
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy
The movie, unfortunately, did not become a box office success. But it is not a film with no merits. Made by Dibakar Banerjee movie tends to concentrate more on the artistic nature of the 1940’s Kolkata than the story being a funny Byomkesh Bakshy detective piece. Sushanth as a performer did give his best to the role. You can watch the film just for his performance. Had Dibakar made a more entertaining film, this could have become a series, like makers intended prior to release.
Shuddh Desi Romance
Shuddh Desi Romance is not a great film and not a bad film too. The movie talks about how times have changed with leads who are commitment-phobic falling in love. It may seem like a twist based love story but the performances give the material more solid ground to stand on. He is cog of the film which is otherwise seems to be a simple satire that drags on and on.
It is sad to lose such an actor who had more to offer and greatest potential as well. Sushanth Singh Rajput will be remembered for these movies more than how he ended his life. One hopes so!
