Reflections 2014: Best Films of 2014

13 January 2015 11:14 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The celebrated filmmaker and cartoonist Walt Disney once said, “Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.” Whatever background or class you belong to, we all love to relish in a Bollywood film now and again. It transports us in to a world we wish we were a part of, as well as exposing us to characters who we can relate to. So has 2014 been a good year for Bollywood? Well let’s just say there were a minority of good films that form part of a pile of disappointments. It’s not been an amazing year for the Hindi film industry, yet we feel that the films which have lived up to our expectations deserve its due recognition. So without further ado, here are the films that have made the final cut!

Mardaani was not an amazing watch. »

Reflections 2014: Top 10 Actresses of 2014

12 January 2015 11:47 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

As reflections of Indian cinema in 2014 do their rounds, there are some very common conclusions everyone has come to that are undeniable. And that it was not the greatest year for actors but quite a year full of feats for our ladies. Indian cinema has come a long way in terms of credible roles and films for our leading ladies. Whilst we are still flooded with the kind of cinema that provide the leading actress with nothing more than a page of dialogues (if that) and 4 songs, we do get the occasional Sridevi in English Vinglish or a Vidya Balan in Kahaani. 2014 gave us more of these rare moments than we bargained for. No doubt we are still hungry for more from our ladies, however we choose to not stop and lament about what we lack but instead reflect on the brilliant year the ladies of Indian cinema have had. »

12 January 2015 9:34 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Although this year’s most memorable performances were delivered by women, there are many actors that deserve being recognised for the good job they’ve done in the year 2014. Here is BollySpice’s list of the top 10 actors who wowed us with their performances!

10. Varun Dawan (Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Main Tera Hero)

This year the actor of Student of the Year explored his most romantic side. With his loveable portrayal of the boy who has to overcome numerous obstacles to win his beloved’s heart, the actor also won many hearts among the audience with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. He had us wishing for more of David Dhawan’s style of cinema with Main Tera Hero when he fully immersed himself in the loud comedy genre with great ease. 2015 looks promising for the Varun, as he is busy with two interesting and different productions, the action film Badlapur, »

10. Aditya Roy KapurParineeti Chopra (Daawat-e-Ishq)

Reflections 2014: 7 Breakout Performances of the Year

31 December 2014 11:35 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

2014 has truly been a year of surprises. The audiences surprised the film makers by accepting movies that perhaps 5 years ago they wouldn’t have, film makers surprised the audiences by challenging the norms of Indian cinema and taking risks with their story telling and above all, actors surprised everyone by delivering performances that we wouldn’t have pegged them to deliver. Bollyspice now brings you a list of Stand Out Performances of 2014. Not all of these performances were lead performances in their individual films but they were performances that stood out of the entire film for us.

Alia BhattHighway

In a recent interview Alia Bhatt confessed that after Student of the Year she was rather disappointed because no one was simply talking about her! Comments were restricted to ‘fresh’ and ‘pleasant’ and never remotely even referring to her actual performance. So she decided in 2014 she would ensure we talk about her and only her. »
