R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi’s Vikram Vedha takes the top spot on the IMDB top 10 Indian films list this year.
R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi’s Vikram Vedha takes the top spot on the IMDB top 10 Indian films list this year.

The top 10 Indian film 2017 list was released by IMDB and the first three spots are taken over by R Madhavan’s Vikram Vedha, Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer Baahubali 2, and Vijay Devarakonda’s Arjun Reddy. All three films were praised by the critics and also worked wonders at the box office. Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar and Irrfan’s Hindi Medium have made it to spot 4 and 5 respectively.

Rana Daggubati’s The Ghazi Attack has also made it to the list. Two films of Akshay Kumar - Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Jolly LLB 2 - have also been rated by IMDB users and has made it to the list. The last two spots are yet again taken over by Vijay’s controversial film Mersal and Mammootty’s Malayalm film The Great Father.

It is not surprising to see Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan and Bhai Salman Khan’s movie not find a place in the list. Shah Rukh’s Jab Harry Met Sejal was panned by both the audience and critics and turned out to be one of the most disappointing films directed by Imtiaz Ali. Salman’s Tubelight did not do any better either. Salman’s character of a child-like man did not win the audience over like he and director Kabir Khan expected.

What is surprising about the list is the fact that the crime thriller Vikram Vedha beat Baahubali 2 to take the top spot. R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi starrer is a crime thriller and was considered as the best of the genre when it released. The audience reach, however, is nowhere close to Baahubali 2 which released in multiple languages and was appreciated worldwide.
