2016 saw awesome movies being released in India. Be it English,Hindi,Malayalam or Tamil, movies were real good. It was a year i watched a lot of movies back to back.Here is my pick of few movies i loved in 2016.
Dangal was a much awaited movie based on the life of Mahavir Phogat, who trained his daughters Gita and Babita in the male dominated sport of wrestling.His daughters went on to become the pride of every Indian.The movie shows the extraordinary effort a father takes to raise his daughters to excellence in a maled dominated sport, in a society where female feoticides are rampant.One of the best performances by Aamir Khan.A must watch for everyone looking for a shot of motivation.
Hilariously awesome.A superhero movie can and will never be as funny as Deadpool
One of the best animated movies of recent times.
A must watch if you wish to relive your college life and the inevitable part of it, the college trips. An awesome effort by a debutante team(First movie for almost everyone involved ).The Cinematographer does a great job making us feel like travelling with the characters.
KungFu Panda 3
Po is always a source of inspiration with his antics.The Dragon Warrior meets his destiny and attains Inner Peace.
Let Peace come to us from all sides.
Anuraga Karikkin Vellam
A totally unexpected hit malayalam movie.Complete with a mix of just about everything, this movie is superb at reviving the old memories for anyone who had been in love atleast once. The breakup scene is so good that almost all the viewers who had past experiences with love, were breathless. One of my all time favourites.
An awesome movie based on real life incidents.It shows how a family together survives a crisis.One of the very few motivational movies in Malayalam.My personal favourite.
A movie as beautiful as the location it was shot. The dialogues and locations took Kerala by storm that after the movie was released Idukki saw a steep rise in the number of visitors from all over Kerala..
Based on the efforts of Neerja Bhanot, the airhostess who died saving the lives of hostages when her flight was hijacked by a group of terrorists.Sonam Kapoor excels in the role of Neerja.Her best performance yet.
Based on a true event, the evacuation of over 170000 refugees from the war torn Kuwait when Saddam Hussain invaded Kuwait. The joint operation by Air India and other ministries back home, it is one of the biggest evacuations ever performed. The movie shows the efforts of Ranjit Katyal and others who heads the rescue operation and how they gets it done.Worth a standing ovation and the history of it is worth being proud of for every Indian.
Tom Hanks did an awesome job playing the hero pilot Sullenberger who did an emergency landing on the Hudson river.Clint Eastwood proves once again that he is the master of superb movies.
One of the best movies on social issues.It shows how a father exacts his revenge on everyone responsible for his son’s death by exposing the evils before the society.It is how the corrupt officials and politicians should be dealt with.
Amitabh Bachchan comes up with a sterling performance as the superb lawyer in a movie which discussed how women are treated by the society and why the societal perceptions should change.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Loving someone even when it is not reciprocated is the most beautiful feeling ever. Ranbir Kapoor excels as Ayan.The songs has life and emotions, though the movie did not impress many.
Paavada was Prithviraj Sukumaran’s best performance the previous year. Excellent in his role as the drunkard Joy, he puts up a stellar performance.The supporting cast too did a great job. The movie was noticed for showing the consequences in a peron’s life when he seeks refuge in alcohol and get addicted.
X men apocalypse
How can one expect a better grand finale for the X-Men series when the mutants fight the oldest and the most powerful mutant ever?
A cute little movie that failed to impress at the theatres but earned much praise once the DVDs went on sale.It tells the story of Guppy, a teenager and his life revolving around the fish he grows.
Ann Maria Kalippilaanu
Cutest malayalam movie of 2016. The movie revolves around the life of Annmariya,a schoolgirl who takes the wackiest route to bash her PT teacher up.She ends up transforming many a lives.Sara Arjun, who stole our hearts in Deivathirumagal(the Tamil remake of I am Sam), does a great job once again.
Best performance by Akshay Kumar of recent times.The viewers are left with whether to decide if Rustom is a hero or villain.
A superb story, stellar perforance by the entire cast and excellent direction sums up Kammattipadam.Dulquer Salmaan brings out his best performance in a movie which reflects on how development complements the rise of a city, but tramples the lives of people.
The last movie of late Rajiv Pillai is one of the best thrillers in Malayalam movies of 2016.A director who experimented with his movies(Traffic being the best example) he gives the viewers a parting gift as Vettah.
Raman Raghav 2.0
Raman Raghav 2.0 based on the serial killer of the same name who terrified Mumbai in the late 1960s.Nawazuddin Siddiqui brings out his best.
This is how badass a superhero can get.He is super powerful, super badass, and super awesome.
Pulimurugan impressed with the best visual effects and action scenes ever seen in Malayalam films.The first ever Malayalam movie to enter the 100 crore club, the movie is a treat for die hard Mohanlal fans. The effort taken by the whole team is to be praised, especially the producer who undertook such a project with confidence, in an industry which has good quality, low budget movies.
Karinkunnam 6s is a motivational offering in sports genre, a rare category of movies in Malayalam. Manju Warrier shines as the coach who leads her team to victory following her husband’s accident.It shows how people can achieve the impossible, by rising to the occasion.
There were many movies like Kahaani 2, MS Dhoni:The Untold Story,Now You See Me 2, Inferno,Jason Bourne, and others that impressed in 2016.Comment below the ones that you liked.
