2015 has been the year where India's biggest motion picture "Baahubali" is a Telugu language film, a Regional film like the industry people call. It has been the highest grossing movie as well. This film has proved how huge the market can be when you make a film focusing on entire Indian market rather than focusing on few regions. Of course, given the diversity of India, it's not easy to find an idea which is common across India.

Along with Bahubali, there have been truly remarkable films both big budget movies and small movies which rely more on scripts and actors. Nawazuddin Siddique has upped his game significantly in 2015. All the three films he acted have been the best films.
