2015 was a revolutionary year for the filmmakers as many scripts with a unique story line and off-beat concepts were not only critically praised but also received commercial appreciation. As the year comes to an end, dna lists out the films:
Tanu Weds Manu returns
Story, screenplay and dialogues: Himanshu Sharma
Kangana Ranaut could not have made a better return after Queen. A sequel to the Tanu weds Manu of 2011, the film was widely praised by the viewers for its humorous screenplay and witty dialogues. Kangana’s double roles as the vivacious ‘Tanu’ and even as the fiery ‘Kusum' were much appreciated. The film actually managed to woo the audience with its real and raw sense of comic timing.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha
Yash Raj films have entertained us with a lot of romantic movies but this story from the banner came as breath of fresh air. Blessing the viewers with a talent like Bhumi Pednekar, the film gave us a peek into what arrange marriages in a traditional joint family could be like. Not only were the performances great but the characterizations of every actor was commendable as well. Kudos to Sharat for this film!
Who would have thought that a Bollywood film, which is based on the concept of ‘motions’ will be able to charm the audiences? The magic of Shoojit Sircar’s direction gave us Piku and some solid performances from the film. Not only were the two hours entertaining, it also gave us a good chemistry between the unusual pair of Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone.
More than the 'sanskari' Bhaijaan and the scenic locales of this Indo-Pakistan tragedy movie, what was much liked by the audiences was the unique script of the film. Baahubali writer KV Vijayendra Prasad impressed the critics with his writing and managed to give two superhit scripts to the year 2015 (Bajrangi Bhaijaan followed by Baahubali). Messages of love, empathy and humanity were so beautifully shared in this amazing journey.
Angry Indian Goddesses
Release Date: November 4, 2015
Story, screenplay: Pan Nalin, Dilip Shankar
Not only did the film make rounds of many film festivals but also created much hype before its release - thanks to its name which irked the sensibilities of the Censor Board. However, after its release, not many could deny that its approach, its story and the screenplay was fresh and brought something new to the table. We had seen a Zindagi Na Milega Dobara with the boys but this was one of the first efforts for an 'outing with girls'. Nouveau indeed!
