    Roy- PKP was above average/decent film. It has impressive first half, but with a poor second half, I left the hall with sour taste. Would like to know your liked films.

    Naveed- LOL :D 7 Khoon Maaf, Game, Teen Thay Bhai, Naughty at 40, Haunted, Bheja Fry2, Always Kabhi Kabhi, Bbudah Hoga Tera Baap, Zokkomon, Murder:2, Aarakshan, Mausam, Loot, The dirty Picture, Ladies Vs Ricky- these all were average/ below average/ bad. The worst being Naughty at 40 LOL.

    Champ- You know what, its not that easy for a film to please me :P

    I disliked many many films of 08, 09, 10. I was almost like Rajeev Masand.
    But don’t what this year did it to me. I must say its the best bollywood year. What a year! Especially July and January. I knew ppl will say i am generous about films after so many positive reviews, but then its only this year where i had given such a good rating to so many films. 2010 the thing was opposite.

    Btw, i guess i have disliked more than 15 films this year. Check that list also. ;)

  11. cr7

    i would like to add one more movie “mfk”

  12. Yakuza

    This was least happening year for me as far as movies are concerned, shayad 7-8 movies hi dekhi hongi pure saal mein .. ab usme se bhi list kya banayu ?

    Delhi Belly was good. Bbuddah was good for fans.Singham was very good. ZNMD is best movie among all. DMD was great. Aarakshan was nice. DON 2 is good. RA.One okays. Loot was time pass. Force below average. Game below average. TDP Okays. Ready good. Bodyguard good …. Haaaa .. ye to 14 movies ho gayi .. sahi hai.

  13. Serenzy

  21. genuine_analyzer

    poor nhai dekhi..bits n pieces…dekunga yaar jab time milega..abhi 31st ko to again going for don 2 with my family..my dad is a big don fan..he loved the first one and wants to see the second one too. :)

  22. Serenzy

    @ prashant

    “Gali ke alawa tha kya?”

    First of all what’s your age…

    Lemme tell u,if u had gone for this movie with 15 frnds of yours,guys and girls included(ages ranging btwn 18-21) than u wud have had the Time of ur lives watching Delhi Belly inside a theatre like me..!!!!

  23. genuine_analyzer

    bullshit..delhi belhi had no story..i hated the movie..watched it in a jam packed pvr ..but hated the movie like anythng..it’s the second worst product from aamir khan’s production house..first being dhobi ghat

  24. deadmanwalking

    Nice list .ZNMD is the best witho any doubt it has the highest rating from people and from crtic also has agreat rating .If this film didnt get the award then will be like Zayed khan win the best actor loooooooooool

  25. Serenzy

    if i had to choose the worst film from aamor khan productions for me it wud be Peepli Live without a doubt….i thot it was a Crap film to the core..!!

    Dhobi Ghaat was a good movie…i really still dunno y people dint like it..maybe i living in mumbai makes me connect to it on a large basis….i really dint find DG thrashy or for that matter long & boring for 1 moment also…infact i find d film nicely paced…!!

    Delhi belly is one of d most fanatastic and better produced movies of the year…!!!

  26. utkal

    No, Prashant, I thought Delhi Belly was the most perfectly scripted and executed film of the year, followed by Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

    1. It was audacious, yet the writer and director pulled it off.
    2. It was that one film in the whole year, that worked from the word go and did not relent till the last second.
    3. It was a complete original, the likes of which was never sen before in Hindi cinema. It pushed the envelope.
    4. It was complete cinema. Wonderful production design with appropriate grungy look. a great cast. Terrific music. Everything about it worked.
    5. It made no compromises with the script. Presented it with 100% loyalty to the director’s vision

    ZNMD had al these qualities, but not realized to 100% perfection. For example, the pacing was erratic. Two songs were crammed in the space of 15 mins. The music as ho um. Therefore it comes second in my list.

  27. Serenzy

    ^

    agree with utkal except for point no.5

  28. Tippu Sultan

    Culled from:www.boxofficereport.net

    Don 2 Which Showed an excellent jump on Sunday continues to go strong on Monday as well. This Clearly Shows that people are defying the rules of box office till now.

    No Movie Has Ever Shown Such a Jump on Sunday Where there are mixed reviews on the First 2 Days. The Effect of Mixed Reviews Was Slightly Felt on Saturday as Collections Could not jump everywhere and jump was minimal. But, SRK Effect Dominated the Mixed Reviews thing and People Went back to Theatres on Sunday and Continue on Monday as Well.

    The Occupancies For the Early Morning Shows Was 50% On An Average All Over India. It Was Upto 70-80% in Chandigarh, Delhi City & Mumbai. Some More Cities Like Kanpur, Lucknow & Kolkatta are also extraordinary.

    The Better News is at Some Places Like Eros One Jangpura Dist, DT Cinemas Vasant Kunj & Shalimar Bagh Delhi, PVR Ambience Mall Gurgaon, PVR Begaluru, etc. The Evening Shows Are Already Sold Out. If its not full at places, over 30-50% Advance Bookings have been already Done. 3D Shows are Doing Even more Better.

    The Monday is Very Likely to perform Extraordinarily. And We are going to see a Good Figure. An Accurate Early Estimate Can be Made Only After Afternoon Shows. But as of Now its very probable that Don 2 Will Collect 8 crores plus on Monday.

  29. genuine_analyzer

    kya TS bhai..maine link post kiya aur aapne poora copy paste hi maar diya.. :D

  30. Tippu Sultan

    Lol GA! I want members to directly read the article in your link.Don’t worry man I still recognize you as the original poster of such news.

  31. Prashant

    Screenzy bhai agr 15dost movie dkhne na jakar kahin bhi jate toh maze he ate..
    And plz Delhi belly ko ZNMD se cmpare mat kro..

  32. sanket porwal

    Tippu Sultan-

    “I disagree with four from the list though I can’t fathom on what criteria you have based your choices on.

    Ready
    Delhi Belly
    Desi Boyz
    Singham

    Tell me your choice criteria then I will reveal my objections.Thanks.”

    Answer is: Entertainment, ENtertainment and ENtertainment.

    Serenzy- I have seen Chillar Party Buddy. I liked it. Check it in the list after the top 15. And i did not like Aarakshan. ANd buddy i saw Delhi Belly with just one friend in theater and I still had a time of my life- rollicking ride it was. ;)

    Utkal- I agree with your 5 points. Yes, its a daring attempt.

  33. utkal

    sanket prowal, let me add one more factor going in favour of Delhi Belly:

    – It depended on getting right actors to play the right parts, male and female, primary and secondary, and not depend on star charisma.

  34. suprabh

    @Sanket

    “Answer is: Entertainment, ENtertainment and ENtertainment.”

    Fantastic Reply.. Even I don’t agree to quite a few movies in your list…but what the hell…Its your list and you got entertained..what more does anyone else needs…Great response..

  35. Akt..

    Sme craps tht i wtchd ra.one,double dhamaal,delhi belly….

  36. sanket porwal

    UTKAL- Spot on. It was more of characters than actors. Adding likes of Kunal Roy, Poorna Jagannadh, Shehnaz treasurywala, Vir Das. All have performed very well in the film. Aamir is master f Bollywood. He is producing small films and they turn out to be gems. Tzp, Jtyjn, Pl, Db all films are super hit/ blockbuster. Aamir justifies why he is called Perfectionist.

    SUPRABH- Yes, one should not aregue with someone on such things.

    ANK- Interesting list. Though i disagree with Bhtb, M:2, I have liked all of the films yu mentioned.

  37. Abhinav kumar

    Nice list Sanket :) and m shocked to see that there is no DON2 in your list..since thats my favourite from this year :( aneways, really agree with most of your likings as we have set a sort of synchronization for movie watching 1st day 1st show :D :p
    Here is my list of top-15 films of 2011-

    7.
    6.
    5. ROCKSTAR
    4. YE SAALI ZINDAGI
    3. SINGHAM
    2. ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA
    1 .DON2 :)

  38. Abhinav kumar

    Sorry, dont know what the hell happened with my keys…it suddenly got submitted… :( :(
    so here is my continued list-
    6. NO ONE KILLED JESSICA
    7. FORCE
    8. CHILLAR PARTY
    9. THE DIRTY PICTURE
    10. STANLEY KA DABBA
    11. FALTU
    12. PATIALA HOUSE
    13. SHAITAAN
    14. DELHI BELLY
    15. YAMLA PAGLA DEEWAANA

  39. Abhinav kumar

    I havent seen DUM MAARO DUM otheriwse i was sure it could have made it to top10 :) aneways the other films that i liked and that can be labelled under a good timepass entertainmnet, they were-
    *Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl(mainly becoz of anushka sharma :D ) what a relief she was in this otherwise mediocre film.
    *Tanu Weds Manu- even as it had a very predictable story, it was handled really well and was a given a perfect northern desi feel to it :)
    *Ready- liked it, but nothing really stood out except SUDESH LEHRI’s comedy, it looked more like a priyadarshan flick and i guess he would have handled it better. But still it was a decent tympass.
    *Bodyguard-Good movie. Superb action. Great acting by kareena. But it was RAHUL RAWAIL(as tsunami) that ruined the image of an otherwise good-flick. Forced humour has never worked for me and so did happened with bodyguard :(
    *Mere Brother ki Dulhan- The imran-katrina-ali zafar chemistry was too gud. Gud music. Desi touch. But its predictabile and done to death storyline doesnt qualifies it to enter my top15 list.
    *Ra.one- mai kuchh nahe kahunga iske baare mein, warna controversy ko hawaa mil jaaegi :( :) btw, i liked this film..thats it..now next…
    *Double dhamaal- i know it had absolutely nonsense humour, but then comedy was never meant to apply brains and tickle ur mental bone rather than your funny one :) i enjoyed double dhamaal quiet very much :)

  40. Abhinav kumar

    The films that i hated to the core and really wished that MERA PAISAA WAAPAS KARDE TICKET KA KOI. They were-
    (no controversies please, all films in this list bears no resemblence to any person living or dead and any non-resemblence wid aneone’s thoughs is purely coincidental :D :D )
    * Desi Boys.
    * Dil toh bacchaa hai ji.
    * Dhobhi Ghat
    * 7 khoon maaf
    * Thank You.
    * Rascals(it actually tops the priority list for a money-back offer :( the pain that i suffered after watching this flick cannot be expressed in a mere sentence or explanation :( )

  41. Bournvita

    Sanket: you forget to put Ra.one and Don2 …Or are they beyond the rating Mr.Srk fanboy

  42. Ank

    Nice list sanket bro here is mine
    10. MBKD
    9.MURDER2
    8.FORCE
    7.DELHI BELLY
    6.BHTB
    5.TDP
    4.BODYGUARD
    3.DON2
    2.SINGHAM
    1.ROCKSTAR
    some craps which i hated
    Dtbhj
    ladies vs rb
    desi boys
    ready
    double dhamal and RA.ONE

  43. bollywoodfan

    This is my top 10 list. Why not 15, because I haven’t seen many.

    1. Zindagi na milegi dobara
    2. Singham
    3. No one killed Jessica
    4. Ready
    5. Rockstar
    6. Pyaar Ka Punchnaama
    7. Tanu weds manu
    8. Bodyguard
    9. Delhi Belly
    10. Stanley Ka dabba and Chillar Party

    Out of 10 only 2 films(ZNMD and Singham) has repeat value. Ready I did not enjoy much in theatre but quiet liked it when I watched it in TV. I am Salman Khan fan and that is the only reason I have included Bodyguard. Bodyguard minus Salman is just an average fare. Bodyguard would have been better if they would have given rustic feel to it. I quiet liked TWM, there was connect but not every moment. Rockstar minus Ranbir would have been headache to me. Rest all were quiet entertaining.

  44. Manish

    @Sanket

    TS ki ball pe tune chakka nahi aththa dussa maara hai ball vaapis bhi nahi aayegi , aayegi to bhi udhardi hui hogi

  45. Manish

    About the movies .. i have seen very very few movies this year …

    Movies that i liked not in any particular order

    Yeh saali zindagi
    Patiala house
    Ready
    Chillar party
    TWM
    Desi Boyz
    BHTB

    I havent seen Thank you , MBKD, ZNMD, BG, Force , saheb biwi aur gangster, NKJ,PKP, Murder -2 , Don-2 , RS, TDP and many more :)

    Ra 1 I dint like at all , Singham was just Ok(the bad fight scenes killed awesome dialoguebaazi for me )

  46. sanket porwal

    Abhinav Kumar- yaar Don2 wont even be in top 20. Its a good film, and thats it. Screenplay fizzles in first hour.

    In any case so you finally made your mind to put Don2 above znmd ;) Well, good list. And i am surprised to see TDP in your list.

    And lol, Rascals was not that bad yaar. :D Bas aap thode jyada intelligent ho uss film k liye. shocked to see Desi Boys n DTBHJ in the worst list.

  47. sanket porwal

    Ank, i disagree with Murder, Bhtb and Tdp in your list. Good list though :)

    Bollywood Fan- agree, BG without Salman was average. Even kareena who did a very good job.

    Manish- LOL :D

    And manish bro, you must ban yourself from watching bollywood films, because you did not see ZNMD. ;) If Agneepath was cult, then znmd is not behind.

    Btw, on topic, i agree with your list except bhtb.
