Top 10 Best Bollywood Films of 2016 – A MovizArk Take!!!


What a year it has been for Bollywood films, while some films such as Sultan, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil , Rustom, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story & Airlift have been money spinners, major films such Fan, Rock On!! 2, Baar Baar Dekho and Wazir failed to live up to their expectations. It comes as no surprise that the Aamir Khan starrer sports biopic Dangal released last week is the best film of the year, while the sports biopic M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story directed by Neeraj Pandey also breaks into the top 10, thanks to its critical & commercial success & of course we have the annual commercial blockbuster from Salman Khan in the form of another sports film, Sultan. As a comparatively big film such as the excellent Airlift has earned a spot in almost every list, smaller films such Pink, Udta Punjab & Dear Zindagi managed to find a good chunk of audience for themselves. While I may seem biased as the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Fan failed to garner their commercial prospects, there is no denying that in comparison to other films, the quality of the film remains far superior. The biggest surprise came in the form of the survival drama Neerja & the multiplex aimed family film Kapoor & Sons, both films which were heartfelt & excellent in their presentation. Films such as Saala Khadoos (another Sports film), Nil Battey Sannata, Happy Bhag Jayegi, Aligarh & Kahaani 2 deserve a special mention here for their respective acclaims.  The below are in the my opinion the 10 best Bollywood films of the year :

  1. Dangal
  2. Pink
  3. Kapoor & Sons
  4. Neerja
  5. Fan
  6. Udta Punjab
