I was going to do of 2019, make it a challenge between Made in Heaven and Gully Boy, but then I decided to make this really REALLY hard and expand our favorite partner pair to the whole decade.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Seemingly simple, actually deep, arguably Hrithik’s best performance ever, definitely Katrina’s sweetest love story. But is it Zoya’s best of the decade?
Great subtle director driven Aamir Khan performance, warm return to form by Rani Mukherjee, amazing heartbreaking Kareena Kapoor. But is it Zoya’s best of the decade?
“Sheila Ki Jawani” section of Bombay Talkies
This little boy! THIS LITTLE BOY!!!!! (or girl, he isn’t sure yet). But is it Zoya’s best of the decade?
Dil Dhadakne Do
A family drama that gives equal weight to new young love, a dying marriage, and a troubled middle-aged couple who have lost each other over time. But is it Zoya’s best of the decade?
Phenomenal soundtrack, expert juggling of a large cast, taking a familiar “rise of an artist” story and making it feel new. But is it Zoya’s best of the decade?
Made in Heaven
Slowly building complex anthology story, balanced with episode by episode stories, all set in an extremely specific place among extremely specific people. But is it Zoya’s best of the decade?
My choice? Made in Heaven! It’s the longest. That’s my complicated reason.
