Unconventional Bollywood : Best Five of 2012!

Bollywood without cliche is like pizza without cheese! But exceptions abound, and here goes my  top 5 Hindi films of 2012 where representation from the margins spelled commercial success!

#1 Paan Singh Tomar

1 army officer+ 1 steeplechase gold medalist+ 1 bandit= 1 Paan Singh Tomar
Songs of the deprived and the downtrodden =  moolahs in bank & National Awards in drawing rooms!

#2 English Vinglish / Kahaani

[Ok, a combined second position for the women power 😀 ]
1 mentally subjugated + 1 physically incompetent =  Complementary in incompetency.
 Abla nari hai bechari’s (poor weak women) victory assured = financial profits restored!

#3 Gangs of Wasseypur (I, II)

Dubious existence + Dark desires + Dangerous life =  Underdogs day out !  
Optimum gratification of the  adrenaline =  producers buried under shekels !!

#4 Vicky Donor/ OMG – Oh My God!

(Yeah got it, sperm donation and religious devotion don’t go in the same breath, but still…)
1 tabooed topic + 1 controversial issue  =  Call for social justice.
Weaklings’ war  won =  commerce unlimited !!

 #5 Barfi!

1 deaf & dumb + 1 mentally challenged +Dollops of plagiarism inspiration= Creativity outburst!
Voicing the voice of the voiceless = loads of dibs and Oscar nomination !
[Actually 7 not 5… & I had tough time preparing the list as my weird whacky ideas kept disturbing me 😛   Please share your 2012 favourites . ] 

Please feel free to lash out or appreciate.

  1. I love the efforts you have put in this, thankyou for all the great blog posts.

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

      Thank you so much for visiting the blog!
      Actually, its fairly easy if you know the story of the film(s) in context . I try to put in my observations without giving away the twists. But will keep your observation in mind next time I write a post 🙂
