PrefaceAnd I SAY WHAT A YEAR this has been!
Well, okay, to be fair, we still had quite a lot of nonsense this year... but hey, you know we're speaking of Bollywood. With the "Great" comes the "not-so-good" movies!
On that note, let's proceed to the Top 10 highest grossers of Bollywood this year (List taken from Wikipedia on 29 December 2013)
- Chennai Express
- Dhoom 3 (still running at the time of the writing of this post)
- Krrish 3
- Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
- Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela
- Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
- Grand Masti
- Race 2
- Aashiqui 2
- Special 26
Maha-Review of 2013
Watched and liked (or even « loved », depending the movies!)
Want to watch (heard good or great things about them)
The “No No NO” list (The movies that I may not have seen, but that I want to avoid altogether!)
If those were the "good ones", then we must mention the "horrible ones" no? Fair enough, let us proceed friends.
Race 2 - Worst sequel ever? There were many this year, so it is hard to say. Race was fabulous, but this one seems to be disappointing, hearing the feedback from sources all around me.
Nautanki Saala - After a successful start in Vicky Donor, Ayushmann Khurrana seems to go for something very weird. Avoidable again!
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 - Ehm disgusting potty jokes involving gorillas and the three Deols? No thank you.
Ramaiya Vastavaiya - No offence, but the actor looks "too cute" to be an actor. I feel bad for Shruti Haasan, she did great in D-Day. Why Prabhu Deva, why??
Chennai Express - The promos offended me a lot, especially that joke of a tribute to Rajini sir. "THALAIVA!" Really, Honey Singh? Stop this ASAP, please!
Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara - Imran Khan, you deserve better! Why did you opt for this one?? Yet another silly sequel, when Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi ROCKED the first part of this one.
Zanjeer - A remake of Amitabh's Zanjeer. Involving a newcomer that has a... erm... funny look. I'm being nice here. Sorry Priyanka, but even you must have known that this was not needed in your career.
Grand Masti - WHAT? A HUNDRED CRORES FOR THIS NONSENSE? Yet another horrible sequel? OK, sorry, but I cannot say more. Next, please.
Boss - A remake of the superhit Malayalam flick Pokkiri Raja, and you know that Akshay Kumar will be too cheesy in such a role. He CANNOT do a fraction of the job that Mammootty did in the original one, sorry AK fans. OMG Oh My God was good, but he should stick to movies like Special 26. Please stop being so "commercial", Mr.Kumar!
Krrish 3 - Why Hrithik, why? The trailer had ended up making me so excited... but then the spoofs made me laugh so much. I just cannot watch this despite being such a huge fan of yours. Sorry HR. Too much a fan of your talent to do this to myself.
Singh Saab The Great - Sunny Deol, you will be back soon. I sense a big movie soon, but do not go for movies like Singh Saab The Great please! You are way too awesome to do such movies...
R... Rajkumar - Shahid Kapur, WHY?! You did a Jab We Met and a Kaminey, and now you are opting for such a thrashy massy flick? You are too awesome, bro. Stop this and become silent, warna main violent ho jaoonga (Hehe)
