2015 is all set to end now. We got to see some really amazing films this year. There were many small films which not just received critical acclaim, but were also commercially successful.
We have jotted down our choice of top 5 films of 2015:
1) Bajrangi Bhaijaan:
Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan tops the list. The biggest surprise of the film was Salman Khan. We didn’t expect such an amazing content-driven film from Salman. Even if you keep Salmania away, the movie touches everyone’s heart thanks to its fantastic story which made us smile as well as cry.
2) Bajirao Mastani:
Sanjay Leela Bhansali took 12 years to make this film and believe us, the wait was worth it. SLB proved that when you make a film with heart and soul, it will surely turn out to be a masterpiece. Undeniably, Bajirao Mastani is the best period film ever made in Indian cinema, and one of the best films of 2015. Not to forget, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra’s performance were one of the factors that made BM look so wonderful on the big screen.
Before the release, Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa was all about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback. But once the film released, it proved that apart from being the actress’ comeback flick, it had all the elements to make it one of the best films of 2015. Not just this, the film also highlighted one of the most prevalent issues in Indian society, in a fantastic way. Sanjay truly proved that he is one of the best directors we have to helm a thriller.
A remake of a South Indian film, Drishyam is one of the best suspense films we saw in Bollywood in recent times. Filled with numerous nail-biting scenes, the film was completely gripping and made us curious to know what happens next. Nishikant Kamat’s direction and Ajay Devgn and Tabu’s performance made it a must-watch film.
5) Dum Laga Ke Haisha:
Dum Laga Ke Haisha was a very big risk YRF took. The Bhumi Pednekar and Ayushmann Khurrana starrer was released with very minimal promotion. People hardly knew about the film, but thanks to the positive word of mouth and fantastic reviews, the film proved to be commercially successful as well. It was entertaining as well as had a hard-hitting message in it.
