  1. Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Kabir Khan deserves due credit for his presentation style in this mammoth blockbuster which rarely goes ‘overboard’ or ‘preachy’ in-spite of the sensitive subject he had chosen. Salman Khan infuses healthy doses of subtle humour while Nawazuddin Siddiqui is class as the small time news reporter and Harshali is the sweetest little girl one could ever imagine.

The monologue of this film shows that how much people have got carried away with the film’s appreciated work in first part and here it maintains the awesomeness as well. There is plenty to admire in this comic tale that gently challenges the dilemmas of a relationship.

Sriram Raghavan’s finesse in handling noir drama is unmatchable in Bollywood. You can’t take your eyes off Nawazuddin Siddiqui in this flick. This movie throws plenty of ethical questions at you, which becomes really difficult to answer under the circumstances; and it becomes increasingly difficult to assess who is the protagonist and who is the antagonist.

Ayushmann Khurrana and newbie Bhoomi Pednekar make a lovable couple and the film is packed with perfect portrayals of a loser man and confident wife.

  1. Bahubali

The words “grandeur” and “Bahubali” go together. Touted as the costliest Indian film till date, the 160 minutes long period action-drama is indeed a visual feast. S.S. Rajamouli’s flamboyant direction makes Bahubali the most memorable movie-watching experience of this year. It is rare to see a movie put so much thought into the set design, costumes and the prosthetic makeup. In every frame of the movie, the extravagance is palpable due to the large number of VFX shots used in order to give the movie more credibility.

The movie boasts of strong performances from the lead characters and has more heart, wit, and egalitarianism than the usual entrants in the genre. Brilliantly written and beautifully executed.
