As we are approaching 2020 in a few days; The World of Movies takes a look at the Top Bollywood Movies of 2019. The list is compiled by our regular contributors and the editorial team. We have included only those movies that we have watched and felt that they deserve mention in this elite list. Also, there’s no hierarchy in numbering.
I am giving Bala 9 out of 10 for its wonderfully executed plot and an impressive climax, something that Ujda Chaman couldn’t achieve last week. Bala’s excellence lies in having layered characters, excellent performances, and never-ending subtle humor. Despite a couple of flaws, this film is worth watching and I am confident that it is going to be one of the Top 10 Bollywood Movies of 2019. Also from the Box Office point of view, Bala is a certified hit and has every reason to join the 100 crore club.
What Works for Dream Girl
Well, the answer is Ayushmann Khurrana and unlimited comic punches throughout the movie. Dream Girl is one crazy ride that starts with comedy and ends with it without indulging too much into social commentary. However, the monologue at the end conveys the social message in an effective way without disturbing the overall flow of the film.
After the success of Vicky Donor, this is the second time we are seeing Annu Kapor and Ayushmann Khurrana together and it works wonders here too. The script, dialogues, cinematography, and direction are awesome by every definition. Being born and brought up in Western Uttar Pradesh I loved the khadi boli/brij bhasha dialect used with perfection in the film. The songs are beautiful and memorable especially Radhe Radhe and Ik Mulaqaat. I am sure people are going to remember them for years to come.
