2013 has taken the Bollywood’s 2012’s “Variety’s Mantel” ahead, with exciting movies across genres. Big budgeted movies like “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani” and “Chennai Express” garnered huge collections, breaking several records. On the other hand, movies like “Ghanchakkar” and “OUTIMD” came out duds.
To start with, I would concede the fact, as I was unable to watch few acclaimed movies, which could have made it to my list. These were – Ship of Theseus, Lootera, Aurangzeb, Saheb Biwi or Gangster 2, David and Vishwaroopam.
2/3rds of the year has passed by, and here is my list of the “Best 10” (not in particular order) till end of August.
1) Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
2) Madras Cafe
3) Special 26
4) Kai Po Chhe
5) ABCD : Any Body Can Dance
7) Jolly LLB
9) Chashme Baddoor
10) Table No. 21
Special mention for “Bombay Talkies”, an ensemble of short stories, was outstanding, but only in parts !
The rest of the year, is awaiting some big releases, which includes Satyagraha, Shuddh Desi Romance, JohnDay, The Lunch Box, Besharam, Boss, Krrish 3 and Dhoom 3 etc.
