Half of the year has gone by and as far as far Bollywood is concerned we saw some really good movies in the first half of the year. The year started with a big hit Agneepath and the first week of June saw yet another big hit in the form of Rowdy Rathore. In between there were several small films that turned out to be big hits. In this half yearly roundup, we present before you, our 5 favorite Bollywood films of this year so far (in no particular order).
Kahaani: A small film which turned out to be the biggest hit in terms of Return On Investment. Starring Vidya Balan the movie was a thriller about a woman named Vidya Bagchi who is searching for her lost husband! Brilliantly directed, this was one of the best thrillers to have ever come out of Bollywood. The success of film proved that content is the new king in Bollywood.
Agneepath: It’s difficult to remake an old classic and it becomes all the more difficult when one has to remake an Amitabh Bachchan film. However director Karan Malhotra had his own interpretation of Angeepath and that reflected throughout this remake of Amitabh’s Agneepath. Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt’s terrific acts won them accolades and the movie turned out to be one of the biggest hits of all times.
Vicky Donor: Small film with a big heart, that’s the line that probably best sums up this movie. The issue of sperm donation was presented in the most light-hearted and non-preachy way. The characters were fun and Anuu Kapoor, Ayushman Khurana played their parts to perfection. A lovable film which deserved all the success!
Rowdy Rathore: Akshay Kumar returned to doing what he does best – action and the audience made sure that the film turns out to be the biggest hit of his career. A typical masala entertainer, Rowdy Rathore was able to entertain the audience and broke several records at the box office. Akshay Kumar was superb in this double role and the movie is the biggest hit of the year so far.
Paan Singh Tomar: The Indian film industry has very few exceptional actors and one of them in definitely Irrfan Khan. The movie was based on the real life story of Paan Singh Tomar, an Indian athlete who was forced to become a bandit. To say Irrfan was superb in his portrayal of Paan Singh would be an understatement. We think he deserves all the awards for his performance and also the movie deserved all the success that it got at the box office.
