And the pilgrimage is over. The 20th edition of the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival came to a close on Thursday night after 7 days of non-stop screenings from around the world. The iiF team managed to catch quite a few titles over the week. Here are some of them, reduced to “ratings” out of 5 – something that might help you, dear reader, to bookmark the great ones, be intrigued by the good ones and find them online over the next few months. Keep in mind that these opinions are subjective.

Here is a list of the 38 films watched, divided into 5 rating categories:
