The Best of Bollywood: 2008
Okay, here’s top 10 of the best of Bollywood films in 2008. It’s my list, and of course it doesn’t necessarily match with yours.
Dasvidaniya: Charming tale of a man spending his last few months. Vinay Pathak at his best.
Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na: Nice script, breezy entertainer, old story… but with a fresh approach
A Wednesday: Tight script, a bit of preaching, no conventional heroes. But gripping.
Aamir: Though a lift of a Filipino film, it’s an intriguing thriller with Rajiv Khandelwal putting in a wonderful performance.
Rock On: Probably Jhankar Beats was better, but this one struck a chord as well.
Mithya: A bit patchy at times, but Ranvir Shorey puts in a delightful performance.
Oye Lucky Lucky Oye: Didn’t live up to the Khosla ka Ghosla promise, but still was watchable. Abhay Deol delights.
Shaurya: Inspired from “A Few Good Men”, it has a powerful performance from Kay Kay Menon.
Mumbai Meri Jaan: Character driven and nicely scripted, it has a close look at various individuals’ reaction to the bomb blasts on Mumbai trains.
U Me aur Hum: Surprisingly good. Wonderful chemistry between Kajol and Ajay Devgan. Plus, Devgan does a good job with a few pretty complicated scenes.
