Dehli Belly also had very good reviews from most film critics who see it as a different way of presenting an Indian film. The movie did not come with the normal music breaks which are the legendary style of Indian movies and most of the conversation were done in English. Rotten Tomatoes gave it an impressive 88% on its site and this attests to the fact that it is definitely one of Anusha Dandekar films worth seeing in the cinemas.

Vidhyadhar Patwardhan portrayed by Amitabh Bachchan was the father of Amar played by John Abraham while his mother Sumitra was Sharmila Tagore. Anusha played the role of Amar’s fiance, Sanjay who was pregnant as at the time he was killed. The film received a good number of reviews as its storyline about family ties and bond was loved by many. It ended with a 68% rating on the Tomatometer.
3. Mumbai Matinee
Mumbai Matinee is an Indian movie which was released in 2003. It was written by the film director Anant Balani. However, it ranks among the worst of Anusha Dandekar’s film appearances as the movie was criticized by a lot of people. Although the storyline was believed to have been very interesting, as it was a romantic comedy movie, film critics were not amused with the turn out of events. Most of them said things could have been arranged better for the movie to have more humor that will appeal to the audience. Some even believed that the movie was done hurriedly and this made it look shabby in the end.
4. Anthony Kaun Hai?
Anthony Kaun Hai? which is translated in English as ‘Who is Anthony?’ is an Indian movie which was directed and produced by Raj Kaushal and Nikhil Panchamiya respectively. It featured Arshad Warsi, Raghurvir Yadav, Sanjay Dutt, Minissha Lamba, and Anusha Dandekar is known to have had a cameo in it. The movie is also notable for being shot in Bangkok, Krabi, and Thailand. The storyline which was an attempt to tell a crime story filled with action and suspense was a big flop in a blend of a comic. It did not get a good reception from its audience and when polls where carried out on the Rotten Tomato site it had a poor 20% rating..
5. City of Gold
This 2010 film is another film in which Anusha Dandekar played a small role. It had dual versions- one in Hindi and the other was in Marathi with the name Lalbag Parel. City of Gold was directed by Mahesh Manjrekar who is notable for directing critically acclaimed movies like Astitva and Viruddh – which featured Anusha. However, City of Gold was not as successful as Anusha’s other productions as the movie was criticized for portraying some facts falsely. It even resulted in a lawsuit when Samant sued Mahesh for accusing him falsely in the movie.
