The year 2013 witnessed a number of new Bollywood releases, bit was not amazing in terms of content and presentation. However, there are some flicks that stood out for me. Various directors showed that rigorous work can be done with sheer passion of filmmaking. Below are my favorite five from the year 2013. I havent categorized them as any form of cinema, but each one of them were able to spin my nerves in one way or the other.
Indian cinema is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. What better gift can the audience expect than having a quartet of shorts by the directors from different filmmaking genres, but having one task, the celebration of Bollywood? The sincerity with which all these shorts are made, it can be truly said as beginning of a new era in cinema.
After his directorial debut of 'Makdee', one cannot doubt the deep insight of Vishal Bhardwaj on the folklores and stories on witches and other scary stories made popular in the subcontinent. With 'Ek Thi Daayan,' he takes the audience to a whole different urban setting unlike the rural one he created in 'Makdee'.
