Top favorite 2008 bolly wood hits in a row

Updated on July 29, 2009

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na movie released in 2008


>

After writing screenplays and dialogues for the best INDIAN movies like Lage Raho Munna Bhai and Maqbool, Abbas Tyrewala has built a film to which I want to give ratings not just as a critic but as an audience because it is a brilliant audience-friendly movie. Every character of this movie starts off as stereotypes, which you will find in every other teen comedy, but it shapes up so lovely such that you will take home something with you. It is a movie filled with clichés but will still manage to touch you at the heart in the right place. I so much enjoyed this film, even though I knew that what will happen at the end.

Acting wise, I would like to say that every character has performed beautifully and as many news papers and magazines are saying that Imran was really good in the movie but for me, the outstanding performance is given by Manjari (Meghna) who has played her role in a brilliant manner and has made her character apart from others. The simple narrative, climax, dialogues, and the highlight of this film all are really great. Abbas Tyrewala has not only made a masterpiece, but I also think that he has made a movie which everyone has loved.

My advice:  Watch it out one or two times as you like.

My rating:  9.5/10

Aamir released in 2008


>

By looking at the promos of Aamir, I kept on saying that this movie will be a copy of either Cellular or Phone Booth, but I would like to tell you that after watching this movie, I think that I was wrong and I am really happy, really shocked, and also emotionally drained by this brilliant movie, which reveals the struggle of an Indian. Rajeev Khandelwal has performed brilliantly in this movie and you will be really amazed to see both, the kind of emotions and the performance, which the director of this movie is able to extract from Rajeev in some scenes, which I do not think was possible too. When you will watch this movie, watch out for a particular scene where Aamir loses his red suit and then tries to get it back.


>

My advice:  This film clearly for me is 2088 best Indian film. It is an outstanding movie and you must watch it.

My rating:  10/10

Mumbai Meri Jaan released in 2008


>

Nishikant Kamat has put life in this movie. This is such a touching and enjoyable little film with a big heart. I have seen Crash and Magnolia, which deals with a similar kind of narrative pattern, but do you know why these films are so special? Let me tell you why these films are special because they never try to cover the larger picture. Let me rephrase my statement by saying that they cover a larger picture through parts. They never jump directly on the big part rather and they wait for it to unfold and this is the reason why Nishikant's film is so special. There are innumerable scenes, which will touch you and give you an insight into how Mumbai survives even with so much cynicism around.

One of the most memorable sequence to me in the film was the one where after R Madhavan's character (who was in the same train when blasts took place) has to travel the next day again in it but gets scared boarding the train (that really signified to me the complexity of the whole situation). Similarly, there are many more brilliant scenes, especially with Paresh Rawal in it. Acting from the entire cast is great.


>

My advice:  Highly Recommended.

My rating 9.3/10

Rock on movie released in 2008


>

The title ROCK ON is not misleading at all because this movie truly Rocks on. Before watching this movie, I was looking forward for a film, which aimed at youth, but I was really surprised by the execution and the maturity with which the scenes were handled and also the way it captured all the emotions. This is how commercial cinema should be made, entertaining and intelligent.


>

If we have a look from the acting front, the two actors have completely stolen the show from the rest and those are Purab Kholi and Arjun Rampal. I remember three to four years back, I said to my friends after watching Moksh (Arjun Rampal's first film) that Arjun has a potential to be a great actor and I remember my friends laughing at me and today, he has made me proud. All my friends who laughed at me previously are silent now and do not have any words after watching Rock On. Arjun has dug deep in this movie and has given a mature performance and the same can be said about Purab. These two actors have completely overshadowed Farhan Akhtar who did a decent job and some of the over dramatic sequences that were unnecessary at the end.


>

All in all, this is a move that portrays the new found maturity which bollywood has obtained. Abhishek Kapoor, the director, has done a good job. Kudos.


>

My rating:  9/10.
