Your most favourite movies of year 2016

I think it's one of the worst years of Bollywood films, only a handful of movies watchable. I liked Neerja, most recent Dear Zindagi and all the three thrillers of Amitabh released this year - Wazir, T3EN and Pink. I should say, Big B is the star of year 2016 in terms of performances and choosing best roles. It's a good year for Shah Rukh too, as he decided to take a new path exploring roles he has never tried before. Both Fan and Dear Zindagi are definitely the actor's best performance since Chak De India was released. Dear Zindagi is my personal choice for year 2016.

Malayalam witnessed a handful of good movies this year, and it entered the elite club of 100-crore this year. In terms of performance, Mohanlal's Oppam directed by Priyadarshan is one of the best movies of the year in terms of script and performance, and it was a blockbuster too. I also liked 'Pretham' (meaning Ghost) starring Jayasurya. I have watched many horror movies and supernatural thrillers belonging to different languages. But Pretham explores a new meaning, it's humour take, a social message and realistic feel made it a popular ghost movie in the recent times. I liked the theme of 'Mentalism' used for the movie. Children's movie - Annmariya Kalippilanu, thrillers - Kali & Puthiya Niyamam, comedy Action Hero Biju, romantic comedy Maheshinte Prathikaaram etc are a few more. I am yet to watch Oru Muttassi Gadha and Kochauvva Paulo Ayyappa Coelho (exploring Coelho's The Alchemist') which received good reviews.

But critics' choice could be 'Kammattipadam' - an extreme violent gangster movie based on real incidents which could bring several National awards to Malayalam for its brilliant script and performances. I was astonished by the performances of a few supporting actors, a  few new to the industry.Action Hero Biju - too had some similar brilliant debut performances by a bunch of new actors.

I watched only a few Tamil movies this year, and liked Kaathalum Kadanthu Pokum starring Vijay Sethupathi. I also liked Suriya's science fiction thriller '24'.

What about your choices? Please mention regional movies too with brief description on why you liked the movie.

I would say Pink was the movie was the year with a subtle but very strong social message. It was flawless with good storyline, direction and powerful performances.

Neerja was also very inspiring and well made. I am going to watch Dear Zindagi tonight and hope it meets my expectation as I am receiving good reviews about it

Sandhya Rani Yes definitely you can watch it to enjoy your weekend - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago

Among the  Bollywood Movies, I liked are, Jugni, Sanam Teri Kasam, Neerja,Juban, Saala Khaddos, Fitoor. Zubaan on TV.

Sandhya Rani add a few Telugu movies too...... Let us know about recent movies. Premam remake was made in Telugu recently, and was trolled most. Sruti Hassan became the victim of trolls, though the movie received mixed response from critics. Was the movie a box office hit? - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago
rambabu In my opinion, there are no worth seeing Movies in the year 2016. Premam movie I did not see - rambabu - 4 years ago
Sandhya Rani I think you are an NTR fan.....:) - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago

I hardly watch any films in the theater unless recommended by some one known to me or has something that interests me. I watched just one  film Bajirao Mastani this year or was it last year ? Neerja and Pink are both  good films which I recently saw on the television.

usha manohar Regional films are if anything worse than Hindi films...I have not watched any of them since almost a decade.. - usha manohar - 4 years ago
usha manohar Actually I have no intentions of spending my hard earned money on any films rather watch it on the TV if I feel like it.. - usha manohar - 4 years ago
Sandhya Rani You can watch movies online too. Wait for a few days for original print. It's almost ad free comparing with TV channels. Also forward if not interested in watching songs. Saves at least one hour - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago

I cannot comment about Dear Zindagi as I am yet to watch it but Fan and Pink were really good. Neerja was undoubtedly good and the sentiment attached with the movie has made it special. No idea about Wazir and T3EN.

Sandhya Rani Both are suspense thrillers.... Definitely Big B emerged as the big star of the year with three terrific performances - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago
