I was going to make this simply “best”, but that’s subjective. Of course this is subjective as well, but I give you a clear definition.
So you don’t have to trust your memory, here is a list to get you started of the biggest best films of the year:
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga
Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota
Student of the Year 2
De De Pyaar De
The Zoya Factor
Pati Patni Aur Woh
Oof, this is hard! Kalank has that epic historical feel, but is BAD. Gully Boy and Article 15 have that gritty “real” feel but are both heavily inspired by Hollywood Oscar nominees (8 Mile and Mississippi Burning). Pati Patni Aur Woh is legitimately extremely well made, but it’s a light farce, and the Oscars don’t like farce.
Hmm. Personally, I would go with Article 15. Well made, serious “important” topic, and no big song sequences to turn people off.
How about you?
