So, I am not going to lie but 2014 was kind of disappointing as for as the box office was concerned. There were no movies that really “stood out” for me. There was no Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, No Ram Leela, not even an Aashiqui 2! The year had so much promise but for me it sizzled out and was very disappointing with lots of “masala movies” that were all actions and no story, especially Happy New Year where some of my favorite actors really disappointed and Kick! which was expected and Action Jackson, which… well I don’t even know!
Shout out to Queen, Haider and Highway for being standouts in an otherwise lackluster year! I personally loved Gunday, Finding Fanny, Dawat-e-Ishq, Khoobsurat and basically anything Alia Bhatt was in (good job girl) Humpty Sharma and 2 States, but none of these films are what one can call something that will leave a lasting impression. Here’s a list of what 2015 has to offer and some of these sound REALLY promising!
I have especially high hopes for Bajirao Mastani, Dil Dhadekne Do, Roy, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (though that one is more because I loved Salu in the lover boy avatar than in the action stuff he does currently), Shandar, Piku and Tamasha!
I especially want to welcome back Ranbir Kapoor! 2014 really missed you!
