Two young people, Aman (Ali Fazal) and Asha (Yami Gautam) meet in London and fall in love. They decide to move their relationship forward, and Aman comes to India to meet Asha’s Punjabi parents. Things are going well until Asha’s parents find out that he is from Pakistan. Inspired by the Spanish comedy Only Human, the romantic comedy is funny only in parts. The writers fail to keep the pace of the story, making the film boring.

Director Sanjay Gupta is a thriller centered around a visually impaired couple, Rohan and Supriya, played by Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam respectively. Their idyllic life is shattered to pieces when Yami is cruelly taken from Hrithik. He decides to avenge his wife’s death when the law does not do him justice.

The realization of Ram Gopal Varma gave Yami Gautam the opportunity to work with Amitabh Bachchan. In the film, she played the character of Annu Karkare, a woman who wants to avenge the death of her father from Sarkar (Bachchan). It was the first time she had tried a gray role on the big screen. Besides Yami and Amitabh Bachchan, the film also starred Manoj Bajpayee, Jackie Shroff, Amit Sadh, Ronit Roy, Rohini Hattangadi and Bharat Dabholkar. The third film in the Sarkar franchise was all about corruption and politics.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu
Broadcast on: ZEE5
Batti Gul Meter Chalu stars Shahid Kapoor, Yami Gautam and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles and is directed by Shree Narayan Singh. The film deals with the issue of inflated electricity bills in small towns. He sends a message without being judgmental and entertains the audience with relevant characters and a good story.
Uri: the surgical strike
Broadcast on: ZEE5
Directed by Yami Gautam’s husband, Aditya Dhar, the film was based on the surgical strike carried out by the Indian military on terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC). The movie’s battle cry, “How’s Josh” has become a slogan, not only for the people but also for the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It starred Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina and Kirti Kulhari.
Streaming on: Disney Plus Hotstar
Amar Kaushik director Bala received rave reviews for his narrative and performance when released in 2019. It starred Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam in the lead roles. Although Ayushmann and Bhumi performed well, it was Yami Gautam who stole the show playing the part of the insecure and “innocently” conceited Pari. Whether it was the more emotional parts or the ones where she must have tickled the funny bone, Yami’s attitude towards Pari made the movie noticeably more watchable.
