Top Hindi Movie Picks & Misses of 2011 according to me

on December 29, 2011

Following are my favourite Hindi films that released in 2011

1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:









Zoya Akhtar sure is a maverick, to come up with this highly unusual story. The Film for me, is a Modern Day Classic & will always remember this movie fondly & as a movie that I can Watch anyday anytime of the week. Brilliant Locales in Scenic Spain, Superb Comic timing, Farhan, Abhay, Hrithik, Katrina, Kalki & Naseeruddin simply create Magic & put life in their characters. Not only does the film entertain but it also makes you learn a very important lesson of life add to it, Superb yet Different Music, The Superb shayari’s essayed by Farhan akhtar are tastefully gracious & noteworthy. I esp. loved “Suraj ki Baahon mein” & “Der Lagi Lekin”. The sumtotal of it all with Visually brilliant thrills undertaken by the Central character makes this the Best Film of the year for me.

2. Rockstar:









Imtiaz Ali, time & again has shown that he is an unconventional yet brilliant story teller, we have witnessed it right from Socha Na tha to Jab we Met to Love aaj kal & now Rockstar.  AR Rahman’s music & Mohit Chauhan’s music is top notch. The Movie also well & truly establishes the metal of Ranbir Kapoor’s acting ability, am Pretty sure RK will walk away with top Honours in all Award functions this year thanks to Rockstar. The film showcases the delusional youth, the Price of Fame & more importantly finding & losing True Love with effervescent ease brilliantly portrayed by its central characters. “Tum Ho” is the Best track of the year & “Katiya Karun” is very croonable.

3. The Dirty Picture:









Milan Luthria, has traditionally done different cinema & genre’s quite effectively but with The Dirty Picture, he shows a side of a storyteller that’s sensitive & sensible, a unique combination. Vidya Balan is the Life & Soul of the Film, she essays the role of a Sex Symbol Dancer of South Indian Cinema as though Silk is her, not only does she dare to bare but she also proves the Point, that Brilliant actors can Portray anything, if they want to albeit their traditional image & comfort zone may be someplace else. Vidya is the Hero as we call it & overshadows all the other Male actors not just by Screen space but by Bold Brilliant acting abilities, Emraan Hashmi downplays his character wonderfully too. Amongst the Music “Ishq Sufiyana” is superb & “Ooh La la” titillates well.

Other Films worthy of Mention in my picks of the year are (in no particular order): Pyar ka Punchnama, Dum Maaro Dum, Force, Tanu Weds Manu, Don 2, Mere Brother ki Dulhan, Delhi Belly, Ladies V/s Ricky Behl, No One Killed Jessica, Yamla Pagla Deewana, Singham…. (am sure i havent picked all), so etc. will be handy 😉

The Films I resent Watching this year are: Rascals, Chatur Singh 2 star, Double dhamaal, Ra.One, Bodyguard, Patiala House… (am sure I haven’t mentioned all here either) so etc. again 😉

One Film that was Slammed by Critics & didnt do too well even in terms of numbers, is Hum Tum Shabana, but i wouldnt keep it in either of the categories because of my Personal Bias & Love for the Leading Lady~ Minissha Lamba, who was adorable & gorgeous as Shabana in an otherwise Poor Directorial attempt by Sagar Bellary. Here’s a star who deserves her place at the top for good & am sure she’ll get there really soon. 🙂
