Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is very much the common man he represents. Like every Aam Aadmi he loves to watch movies. He not only likes to watch the latest movies but also reviews them on Twitter. The hash tag "#kejrimovies" trends on Twitter every time the public comes to know that the AAP leader has watched a flick.

"Manjhi, the Mountain Man is simply superb. Very inspirational. Youth must watch it," he tweeted after watching the movie.

In another tweet, he praised actor Nawazuddin Siddhiqui's "phenomenal" acting. He also took a dig at Prime minister Narendra Modi over his DNA remark on Nitish Kumar by tweeting: "Now that Bihar polls are approaching everyone should watch the (Manjhi) film to know what the DNA of Bihar is made of."

3. Drishyam:
