Reflections 2012: Top 10 Actors of 2012

One of the best aspects of 2012 was the sheer range of films that were released, from the masala heavies by Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Ajay Devgn, to the surprises in Kahaani, Vicky Donor, and Gangs of Wasseypur. While the “100-crore club” was given much hullabaloo in the newspapers, it was the content of these films that made a Barfi! part of this club. The films were packed with impressive ensembles and featured some standout performances from the unlikeliest of actors who went that extra mile to prove their detractors wrong. Yet it was a stellar year for actors who brought some brilliant performances in some of the best films of the year.

10. Salman KhanEk Tha Tiger

It’s easy to say that Salman Khan phones it in and relies on his meta-appeal to sell these films to the audience who will happily watch whatever he does. But trust

Khap Movie Review

Starring Om Puri,Govind Namdeo, Manoj Pahwa,Mohnish Behl, Anooradha Patel,Uvika Chowdhary,Sarrtaj

Directed by Ajai Sinha

Rating: ***

Issue-based films tend to get themselves into trouble.And we don’t mean just the trouble caused by disgruntled parties, political or otherwise. The balance that needs to be struck between headlines and their cinematic interpretation often tends to get lost thereby defeating the noblest of purposes and the best intentions of conscientious filmmakers who look at the cinematic medium as more than just entertainment.

Ajai Sinha who has his roots in meaningful television entertainment, boldly takes on the theme of khap (community) justice in rural Haryana, whereby any marriage between two individuals of the same gotra (clan) is punished by local village panchayats.
