Bollywood’s sudden passion for women-centric films reflected through its successive releases in the year 2012! Here’s a quick recapitulation of the most hyped five !
#1 KahaaniVidya Balan’s pregnant belly and Sujoy Ghosh‘s fertile story was a win-win thriller all the way! An expectant lady and a hair pin never appeared so empowering and deadly before!
#2 Dangerous IshqKarishma Kapoor‘s comeback with Vikram Bhatt through past life regression sessions was indeed ‘dangerous’ . Love was never this awful and regressive !
#3 HeroineKareena Kapoor‘s heroine act was stuffed with hell lot of medical condition than any innovation! Dear Mr. Madhur Bhandarkar remember the old saying- repetition kills novelty?
#4 English VinglishGauri Shinde’s drama successfully de-colonizes a ‘home-entrepreneur’ as well as Sridevi, the actor (who , apart from Sadma, had barely managed to move beyond that artificial accent and glamour doll image in her previous innings)!
#5 AiyyaaThe ‘sniffy’ affair never managed to attract the right whiffs. And by the time sniffers and makers (Rani Mukerji & Sachin Kundalkar ) leave your company you are left with a chocked brain ! [ Read my observations on Aiyyaa here] The films are listed according to their release date and does not reflect the hierarchical order of my preference. But my preference (s) are very apparent aren’t they 😉 . Which is your favourite among these?
Please feel free to lash out or appreciate.
