Best of Bollywood 2011

The best films of Bollywood  in 2011

‘Stanley Ka Dabba’

Relive your school days with ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’. Director Amol Gupte captures the nuances of school life and elicits brilliant performances from his cast, especially the kids. Watch ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’ for the honesty with which the film is made.

‘Delhi Belly’


‘Delhi Belly’, from the house of Aamir Khan, took pride in being zany and irreverent. A side-splitting New Age Bollywood comedy, with a sensible storyline, ‘Delhi Belly’ also featured trend-setting music and a career-defining performance by Imran Khan. ‘Delhi Belly’ is the best comedy of 2011.

‘No One Killed Jessica’


‘No One Killed Jessica’ was based on the murder of model Jessica Lall and her sister Sabrina Lal’s fight for justice. The plot of the movie was well known to the audience but that didn’t deter them from lapping up this engaging ‘fight against the system’ drama. A taut screenplay and arresting performances by Vidya Balan and Rani Mukherjee make ‘No One Killed Jessica’ a must-watch.

‘Aarakshan’


Prakash Jha delivered yet another thought-provoking movie with ‘Aarakshan’. The socio-political thriller is a balanced take on the controversial subject of caste-based reservation. It also discusses the commercialisation of education in India. Amitabh Bachchan and Manoj Bajpayee stood out among the ensemble cast.

‘I Am Kalam’


Watch ‘I Am Kalam’ for the simplicity and clarity with which it conveys the social message of education-for-all. It is a well made triumph-of-the-underdog movie with its heart in the right place. The National Award-winning performance by child actor Harsh Mayar (as Chottu) makes ‘I Am Kalam’ an endearing experience.

‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’


‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ is the feel-good movie of 2011. A picturesque tribute to life, love and friendship, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ found favour among the youth. A good looking star cast (Hrithik, Farhan, Katrina etc) and a breezy script added to its allure.

‘The Dirty Picture’


Watch this movie to know why people are going gaga over Vidya Balan for the fantastic actor that she is. Playing a south Indian siren, she enticed the audience with her acting prowess and oomph. Rajat Arora’s witty dialogues added spice to the proceedings.

‘I Am’


This episodic movie pulled at one’s heart strings by portraying issues pertinent to the India of today. ‘I Am’, not entirely free from flaws, also championed the cause of an individual’s rights. Here is a movie that makes you sit up and think.

‘Pyar Ka Punchnama’


‘Pyar Ka Punchnama’ is the surprise/word-of-mouth hit of 2011. The movie chronicled, realistically, the relationship pangs of three young men. Newcomers Rayo Bhakhirta, Divyendu Sharma and Kartikeya Tiwari delivered commendable performances in this adult comedy.

‘Tanu Weds Manu’


We love our romantic comedies. And for that reason, ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ finds a place in this list. The fresh pairing of Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut, heart-warming performances and the premise — ‘Opposites attract’ — set the cash registers ringing.

Hrithik Roshan hosts a wedding

The wedding season has indeed dawned on Bollywood. And Hrithik, it seems, has also been bitten by the wedding bug.

While Aamir, Dilip Kumar, Big B and the creme-de-la-creme of B-town attended Boman Irani’s son’s wedding, Hrithik skipped this B-town shaadi for another one. The Roshan boy is very fond of Boman, and though he knew that most of the Bollywood brigade would converge for this one, there was another shaadi that he simply couldn’t miss.
