Atlee’s Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jawan topped the list and the director is on cloud nine about the fact. He says, “Jawan is a captivating action entertainer that portrays the emotional odyssey of a man determined to rectify social injustices. The reception and love it received from audiences worldwide is overwhelming.”
Yet another Shah Rukh-starrer joined the list this year – this one directed by Siddharth Anand and marking the entry of a new R&AW agent in the YRF spy universe. The film saw him play a R&AW agent, who forms a special unit to complete a mission and stop a terrorist (John Abraham) from wreaking havoc in the country.
#3 Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani
This Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt-starrer won hearts for all the right reasons this year and director Karan Johar says, “The team and I are overwhelmed with the love and warmth we have received for the film. To be on this list of IMDb is a massive validation, I feel more energised as a filmmaker now.”
The list would seem incomplete without the latest addition to Lokesh Kanagaraj’s exciting Lokesh Cinematic Universe that was preceded by Kaithi and Vikram. The Tamil film Leo stars Vijay and Trisha in lead roles, and is an adaptation of the 2005 English film and the 1997 graphic novel, A History of Violence.
#5 OMG 2
The sequel to OMG! served a much-needed and important lesson when it comes to sex education. Starring Pankaj Tripathi and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles, it looks like this satirical comedy was a worthy sequel to a hit film.
This Nelson Dilipkumar directorial saw Rajinikanth play a retired Jailer whose idyllic existence receives a massive blow. The Tamil film also saw cameos by Kannada star Shiva Rajkumar and Malayalam star Mohanlal, much to the delight of fans.
When Gadar: Ek Prem Katha released in 2001, it revived Sunny Deol’s career. Years later, the sequel did the same with the Ameesha Patel co-starrer taking the story forward from where the prequel left off.
#8 The Kerala Story
Adah Sharma plays Shalini Unnikrishnan, a college student from Kerala, who loses her identity, faith and life due to religious extremism. The film might have left the audience split, but the title was clearly popular enough to make the list.
#9 Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar
This Luv Ranjan rom-com left the audience split as much as his previous films did. Ranbir Kapoor plays a carefree businessman and womaniser, while Shraddha Kapoor plays an ambitious chartered accountant in this comedic film.
Bholaa is the Hindi remake of the 2019 Tamil film Kaithi. Ajay Devgn plays a truck driver who has been released from jail but finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy much bigger than him. The entire story takes place in the span of a night.
