    Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year

    Dir: Shimit AminCast: Ranbir, Shazahn & others

    A small little gem from the winning combination of Shimit Amin - Jaideep Sahni which had given us the phenomenal Chak De! India. Ranbir showed his versatility in this scintillating performance as the gutsy Sardar who manages to pave his own way through the corrupt world of sales. A movie which came the closest yet, to a realistic depiction of the corporate world in Hindi movies! Surprisingly did not ′rocket′ commercially but was well appreciated by those who watched it!

    Dev D

    Dir: Anurag KashyapCast: Abhay, Mahi, Kalki & others

    A bold take on the age-old Devdas story by maverick director Anurag Kashyap which caught the attention of both the film critics and the audience. Abhay Deol plays the lead role of the lovelorn Devdas, a rich spoilt brat, well supported by Mahi Gill and Kalki Koechlin as Paro (the village girl) and Chanda (an escort) respectively. Unconventional hits like ′Emotional Atyachar′ from Amit Trivedi in a bohemian album added to the zany attraction of this cult film.

    Wake Up Sid

    Dir: Ayan MukherjiCast: Ranbir, Konkona & others

    A ′coming of age′ movie featuring the golden boy of tinsel town yet again, Ranbir Kapoor and the very talented Konkona Sen Sharma. Debutant director Ayan Mukherji unfolds a simplistic yet endearing story about a young rich boy who struggles to find his true calling in life and falls for a focussed girl. Ranbir gives a melt-your-heart performance in this refreshing film which has some lovely tracks by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Leaves one feeling good!

    Wanted

    Dir: Prabhu DevaCast: Salman, Ayesha & others

    Wanted was one of the surprise hits of 2009. Slammed by the critics it had a storyline borrowed from the movies right out of the 1980s, containing crimelords, lecherous corrupt cops, a voluptuous damsel in perpetual distress & a brawny undercover hero who bashes the baddies to oblivion. Prabhudeva′s directorial debut showcased Salman′s return to action which had his fan club ′want′ing more & the makers laughing all the way to the bank!

    New York

    Dir: Kabir KhanCast: John, Katrina, Neil & others

    One of the earlier movies addressing the issue of terrorism & the backlash of 9/11 seen on the Muslim community. Fine performances by Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham and half a decent portrayal by Katrina as the carefree college girl and then as a wife and mother. Although it failed to really make a mark at the box office, Kabir Khan′s New York found its own following among a niche audience!

    Kaminey

    Dir: Vishal BharadwajCast: Shahid, Priyanka & others

    This dark horse from Vishal Bharadwaj was different in style & substance. It showcased Shahid and presented reality in a never-seen-before manner on the Indian silver screen! Celebrates Priyanka′s coming of age as well, as an actress. The film is about twins who lisp and stammer, different in their approach to life and their ambitions in a world of crime. A movie which the critics & the audience both appreciated! In a nutshell ′Fekfy′ & ′Fuper′ cool!

    Love Aaj Kal

    Dir: Imtiaz AliCast: Saif, Deepika & others

    A modern day love story which touched a chord across age groups. Imtiaz Ali added another feather to his cap with this progressive movie. About 2 love stories set in different decades, showing differences but also similarities in love across time. Deepika fit her role well & Saif left no stone unturned in ensuring that all went right with his home production. One of the bigger hits of 2009, Love Aaj Kal also had music which set the nation′s pulse racing!

    Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani

    Dir: Raj K SantoshiCast: Ranbir, Katrina, Upen & others

    Rajkumar Santoshi made a great comeback with this goofy romantic comedy. Ranbir and Katrina′s crackling chemistry and the rather banal but sweet love story set in a small town, despite oscillating levels of humour in the screenplay, found great favour with the youth! With some ′Ajab′ly funny dialogues from Ranbir & some ′Ghazab′ songs by Pritam picturised on the stunning Katrina, this movie managed to recruit new members into the ′Happy Club′!

    Paa

    Dir: R. BalkiCast: Amitabh, Abhishek, Vidya & others

    One of the most sensitive movies of 2009 managed to touch the hearts of millions, not through gimmicks or clever marketing but through its sheer simplicity! Vidya Balan showed her mettle while Abhishek and Arundhati Nag delivered seasoned performances! But what stole the show was the effortless way in which Amitabh shed his persona to don the character of Auro, a 13 yr old who suffers from Progeria! A delicately balanced movie indeed!

    3 Idiots

    Dir: Rajkumar HiraniCast: Aamir, Kareena, R. Madhavan, Sharman & others

    A movie which came packaged in tremendous hype and not only lived up to but surpassed all expectations! With some excellent performances coming in from Boman, Omi and of course the 3 idiots (Sharman, Aamir & Madhavan) themselves, the movie questions the existing education system in India in a hugely entertaining manner. Declared the biggest grosser ever in Hindi films, it is still drawing in audiences to the theatre!

3 Idiots have a partial advantage of being the most recent.
