Best Bollywood Films of 2013
Frankly I have not been a fan of the Dhoom series, the 1st one was highly inspired but was entertaining enough to sail through, while the 2nd was terrible!! I still dont understand why people liked that crap fest!! But the 3rd installment, like they say is bigger & better. Even though it has cleanly ripped a major plot of a popular Hollywood movie (cant spoil it), it tweaks it & goes around differently. The action sequences are high octane with a major improvement on VFX. The cinematography is beautiful as it makes Chicago look like some wonderland, no wonder this movie is also releasing in IMAX. The music is average but wonderfully choreographed. Aamir Khan is often considered the number UNO, well while watching this you will understand why. He is perfect as the anti hero driven with a clear goal. Abhishek Bachchan, a highly underrated actor usually judged due to his poor choices, makes a definite stand & matches Aamir Khan toe to toe & gets ample opportunity to showcase himself in the franchise which gave him his 1st hit! Uday Chopra provides a good comic relief & is good during the action sequences. Katrina Kaif is restricted to a minute role appearing mainly in the song sequences, but you will be astonished by the dance & aerobic sequences she has performed!. In simple words like they are supposed to say..this year has surely ended with a Dhoom. Must watch!!
10 Best Bollywood Films Of 2013
As far as storytelling is concerned, Bollywood reached a new high this year. A lot of films that hit the theatres in 2013 proved how progressive the Indian cinema is becoming – be it bolder themes, better stories or innovative ways of filming. Choosing to not go by mere box office collections, MensXP brings to you an exclusive list of the best Bollywood films of 2013.
10. Aashiqui 2
Movie-goers would’ve thought ‘Aashiqui 2’ would be another disappointing sequel given that Aditya Roy Kapur and Shradhha Kapoor had no brilliant performances to their credit. But the film left the audiences more than impressed. The music was already a hit amongst the masses and still continues to hog the 2013 chartbuster list. Shradhha Kapoor’s spotless beauty and performance as the love-struck middle class girl won accolades from all movie-goers. With his breakthrough performance, Aditya Roy Kapur as the brooding, alcoholic lover caught everyone’s eye and entered the league of the hottest guy in Bollywood. Not even once did Mohit Suri’s style of story telling let this heard-before romance go overboard!
9. Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani
There are films that stir you from within, and then there are those that make you feel good. Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani may be ridden with clichés, but the plot centring on a man who never wants to settle down with one particular thing did manage to strike a chord with the young. It may not be a thought-provoking piece of art, but it never promised to be one. YJHD delivered exactly what it promised through trailers – entertainment, fun and some foot-tapping music. The film had the correct amount of drama, emotions, substance and light-heartedness. Not to mention, praise-worthy performances by most of the cast, especially Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Aditya Roy Kapur.
Based on the life of the assassinated lawyer and human rights activist, Shahid Azmi, this Hansal Mehta film was an exceptional example of meaningful cinema in 2013. A moving performance by Raj Kumar Yadav and an engaging plot left the audiences speechless after the show was over. Critics were all praises for this masterpiece. Even though ‘Shahid’ wasn’t one of the highest grossing films of 2013, it was undoubtedly one of the most critically acclaimed films.
This love saga of a Hindu Tamil priest and a Muslim girl needs a special mention. After infecting the nation with ‘Kolaveri Di’, Dhanush proved his mettle as an actor with ‘Raanjhanaa’. His brilliant performance as one-sided lover obsessing over Sonam Kapoor won him many accolades from every movie-goer. The film was brimming with powerful performances by the leads and the side characters alike and the plot was equally strong. The political twist in the second half added the perfect amount of depth and pace in the film. Kundan’s character was as lovable as it was annoying because of his perseverance to woo the lady. Sonam Kapoor, as the girl who just cannot get herself to love the protagonist, showed marked improvement in her performance and A.R. Rehman’s music took the movie a level higher. Executed by the director with praise-worthy finesse, Raanjhanaa stands tall on this list of best Bollywood films of 2013.
6. Madras Café
One of the most underrated films of 2013, it may not have hit the 100 Crore club, but it definitely etched the mind of everyone who went to watch it. Based on the Srilankan civil war, this thriller has striking resemblance to Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination. John Abraham really outdid himself with this one. This ambitious and brave attempt takes you through the plot matter-of-fact-ly without dramatising it even a bit. The film sticks to its original theme and never wavers off to induce senseless humour. The plot may wander off a little from the real events at times, but it is still one of the most hard-hitting films we saw in 2013.
5. Ram Leela
Sanjay Leela Bhansali returned after a long time and delivered yet another magnificent film. The lavish costumes and larger than life sets redefined grandeur. But never did the visuals take away the attention from either the performances or the plot. Ram and Leela meet, they share a passionate kiss and thus begins the ‘goliyon ki raas-leela’. Very rarely have we seen a romance so fierce! The two lovers are severe – be it in bed or the battlefield. Deepika Padukone was explosive as Leela while Ranveer Singh raised our expectations even more with his performance. The music grows on you over time and transports you back to the dangerously magical world of Ram and Leela where Rajadis and Saneras might still be fighting for blood.
4. Kai Po Che
Based on Chetan Bhagat’s ‘The 3 Mistakes Of My Life’, ‘Kai Po Che’ revolved around three best friends who set out to start their own sports academy and shop. It tracks down their friendship as it is uprooted by some religious upheavals. Packed with brilliant performances by all the three leads, this tear-jerking film left the movie-goers choked. A very insightful take on how dreams, aspirations and friendships alter and suffer at the hands of communal hatred, the film was a very thought-provoking attempt.
3. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
One of the finest actors today, Farhan Akhtar and eminent visionary of cinema Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra joined hands to give us one of the most prized films of Bollywood. With it’s success, BMB has made an entry into the most amazing biopics of all times. Based on the life of ‘The Flying Sikh’ Milkha Singh, BMB showed how the nation wronged its most prestigious athlete. Farhan Akhtar prepared himself mentally and physically to portray Milkha on the 70mm screen and his dedicated was visible. Not even once did the film made it’s long runtime affect the movie-goers’ experience. With exceptionally good cinematography and screenplay and moving performances by everyone in the film, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is the most inspiring film we’ve seen in a long time.
2. The Lunchbox
This compelling story about a lonely middle aged man and a housewife seeking companionship, comfort and to some extent, love in each other’s letters is extraordinary. The lunchbox as the cupid has an equally big role to play as the two protagonists. Without much said, the scenes speak a thousand words. Veteran Irrfan Khan gets into the skin of Saajan Fernandez and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Shaikh is endearing at his best. Nimrat Kaur is a revelation. The little nuances she holds on to throughout the movie make her performance stand apart. When you can act like nobody’s watching who cares if your legs aren’t as hot as Deepika’s! This heart warming film is sure to make your heart melt.
Undoubtedly the best on this list, Lootera is a film Bollywood will boast of for decades to come. Wonderfully slow paced, this love saga of Pakhi and Varun Srivastava has a rare old world charm. The silence in the film is haunting and the jolting performances by everyone, including the surprise package Sonakshi Sinha will leave you speechless. The plot is loosely based on O. Henry’s ‘The Last Leaf’ does entire justice to the short story. Setting his film in the early 50s, Vikramaditya Motwane effortlessly makes the film glide from Manikpur to Dalhousie, making your heart pulsate whenever Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi come on screen together. Be it the cinematography, the pace, the locations or the look – ‘Lootera’ gets it all right to perfection.

Best Bollywood films in 2013: when experiment & industry took giant strides
If 2013 was significant for being the centennial year of Indian cinema, it didn’t disappoint with its output either.
From breaking BO records to breaking new grounds, the film industry achieved it all.
We list top 15 Bollywood films that scored at the box office and received critical appreciation as well.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Farhan Akhtar's biopic on Indian athlete Milkha Singh collected over Rs 100 crore. This Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra directorial venture did have critics cry foul over its length (with many suggesting that a half an hour less would have been good), Farhan's acting came up for universal praise. The audiences of course lapped it all up.
Ritesh Batra's The Lunchbox may not have collected hundreds of crores but recovered more than its budget. The Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur-starrer was a fresh departure from the routine romantic films of Bollywood.
When Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty joined hands to make a film, it resulted in a superhit that not only entertained the masses but also became the then fastest entrant to Rs 100 crore club. Chennai Express crossed the coveted figure in its first weekend.
Kai Po Che
Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat's 3 Mistakes of My Life, Abhishek Kapoor's film brought the talents of Sushant Singh Rajput and Rajkumar Yadav to the limelight. Both are among the best talents in Bollywood today.
Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera came as a surprise, not because anyone doubted Motwane’s talent. Remember Udaan? It was expected that he would pick O Henry’s Last Leaf and create magic. But the surprise was that he picked mainstream stars like Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh, who have excelled in commercial cinema. And further surprised when both emerged as serious actors. Critics applauded their skills while producers were happy with the profits.
Anand L Rai brought South superstar Dhanush to Hindi cinema with Raanjhana. The love saga not only stormed the box office to enter the Rs 100 crore club but also brought the Kolaveri Di actor-singer to national limelight. Sonam was also appreciated for her acting.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
This Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor starrer set the box office registers ringing within days of its release. The movie received mixed reviews from critics while consolidating the lead pair’s standing as stars who can pull crowds.
Hansal Mehta's Shahid is one of the small budget films that made big impact in 2013 primarily for two reasons. First was the superlative performance by its lead star, Rajkumar Yadav. Second, the film brought into sharp focus the issue of Muslim youth being wrongly accused for terror tag and the trauma that their families have to go through.
Hrithik Roshan's magnum opus Krrish 3 met the expectations of emerging as one of the biggest blockbuster of the year. The film got a major fillip when its special effects were lauded for being as good as the best from anywhere in the world.
John Abraham explored a completely new genre with Madras Café which blended feature film format with documentary style narration apart from bringing back the Tamil question in Srilanka back into focus. John Abraham’s performance came up for decent reviews as well.
Goliyon Ki Raasleela - Ram-leela
Despite being involved in controversies over its title, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's adaptation of Romeo-Juliet earned wonderfully at the ticket counter. The film was remarkable for its artistry, the chemistry of the lead pair and established Deepika Padukone’s status as a major star in Bollywood firmament.
The highly ambitious sequel to 90s musical superhit Aashiqui may have failed to impress critics but the audience graced the film with love and enthusiasm. For particular mention were its songs and impact its lead pair had as lovers.
Ship of Theseus
Anand Gandhi's Ship of Theseus was one of the first small budget films of the year that was widely talked about and received wonderful reviews. Complex and compelling, all will agree.
Aamir Khan turned baddie for Dhoom:3 but audience have been lapping it up with great vigour. Despite mixed reviews from critics, the movie is almost reaching the Rs 300 crore club. If in doubt ask your kid for special mention.
Shuddh Desi Romance
Sushant Singh Rajput emerged as of the most promising actors of 2013. With its out-of-the-box romance, the film was not too popular with the audience but received nice reviews.

Little, and she only bent her back more, sharply entered her half of the member. Great pleasure seized me. I was pleased, I felt how her hot moisture spreads all over my penis, how the pussy tenses and relaxes, squeezing my penis inside. I began to move slowly. with each slow push, the girl moaned a little, and when I began to move sharper - she was so a beautiful.

This time I got there freely and immediately took a fast pace and fiddled with her clitoris with my hand, periodically driving my finger into. The vagina. Katyusha groaned again. When I felt the approach of orgasm, I stood up abruptly. Katya slid off the sofa and knelt down on her knees.Lootera 2013 - Full Romantic Movie HD - Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, Vikrant Massey.
Her oozing cunt squelched against his fingers, her thighs trembling as she listened to his lewd words. Abruptly, he pulled his fingers out of the woman, brought them to her lips, which obediently even for herself opened and licked all their own secretions from them. Olya seemed to feel like she was on the other side of the screen, as if obeying the unknown code of a slave, woven from everything she saw or read, which.

Then she began to swallow him deeper and deeper, making swallowing movements with her throat, she seemed to milk Dan's cock. And soon the molofia dripped down her throat, Dan winced at his friend's spasms in the prostitute's company. It was a little nice, a little disgusting. There was no comparison with the experienced orgasm in the clearing.
Then they rested, Dan went for the mug of beer due to him, and treated his.
