In keeping with her star brand of content-driven vehicles, Vidya Balan pulled a rabbit out of a hat with her part as Silk Smitha. Balan’s act was fiercely unapologetic, weaponizing the male gaze against the very guys who objectified her. Balan’s success in another 100-crore film paved the path for subsequent female-led films like NH10 and Raazi.

4. Vicky Donor

With his debut film, directed by Shoojit Sircar and scripted by Juhi Chaturvedi, Ayushmann Khurrana established his own genre of Hindi films. Nine years later, Khurrana is one of the busiest and most successful actors today, despite battling erectile dysfunction, hair loss, and other issues. It’s worth remembering that it all started with Dr. Chadha’s (Annu Kapoor) fertility clinic and sperm donation.

When Anurag Kashyap announced his two-part family criminal story, some of us assumed it would be a B-version of Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York. The two-part picture, which premiered at the Cannes Picture Festival, released its viewers such a plethora of flavorful personalities that the film quickly pierced its way into everyday pop-culture references. Thanks to Sneha Khanwalkar’s excellent soundtrack, Keh Ke Lenge has made its way into street jargon.

6. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013)

This was the almost true story of the Flying Sikh, Milkha Singh, a world champion runner and Olympian who overcame his family’s tragedy, Partition, and subsequent destitution to become one of India’s most legendary athletes. At the 1960 Rome Olympics, he notoriously lost the most important race of his life. But, amid the darkness, he discovers the light of salvation.

Milkha Singh was shown in the film as a man of steel and as a guy with worries, insecurities, wants, and a flaw. Farhan Akhtar was an intriguing choice for the role of the sports star. Farhan undertook a total change – both physically and mentally – to appear credible as an athlete. It took him 13 months of hard work and dedication to fitness to complete his transformation.

A love story told through a written letter is not altogether novel in Bollywood. However, Ritesh Batra’s rendition begins with a blunder on the part of Mumbai’s Dabbawallahs (who reportedly make only one error for every 10 million deliveries undertaken by them). Batra’s two love tale characters are a middle-aged man (Irrfan) and a lonely housewife (Nimrat Kaur). The Lunchbox, an Indo-French production, offered cinema its greatest gift — Ritesh Batra is an Indian film director.

3 Idiots taught us that whatever our issues in life are, we should only say, “Aal Izz Well’…this may not cure our issues, but it will give us the strength to face them.” “Chase excellence and success will follow,” says the second. The third is, “Life is not about collecting scores or grades, but about pursuing your dreams.” These are some golden rules that 3 Idiots taught you in a fun way.

The film, which was largely based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel Five Point Someone, has a cult following among young people. The film 3 Idiots showed us that there is much more to life than grades on a report card. It was motivating because it encouraged you to take risks, dream big, and carve your own path.

9. Gully Boy

Zoya Akhtar’s film about Mumbai’s hidden gully rap culture was hardly the most powerful film of the year. Still, it did impact the course of Hindi filmmaking. Gully Boy manages to do something rare: not make a mockery of a subculture far from mainstream Bollywood sensibilities while telling the classic underdog story with captivating performances by Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, and a terrific supporting cast.

10. Baahubali

With its unique take on The Lion King’s story, SS Rajamouli’s film reinvented the Indian blockbuster. What it lacked in innovation, it more than made up for in pomp and splendor. This (originally Telugu) film became such a pan-India success that it quickly became a standard for Hindi films. Thugs of Hindostan, Kalank, and Manikarnika have attempted to duplicate the Baahubali glitz. Still, none have come close to changing the trajectory of the Indian blockbuster like the two-part Baahubali movie.
