DASKINO’s pick of 2008
A Wednesday (H) – The surprise hit . Conversation of the year (between N.Shah and A.Kher).
Aamir (H) – A movie which brings you back to life with its dramatic ending. A bold and true to the heart film. A march contributing towards the evolution of Indian cinema.
Anjathey (TA) – One of the most impressive narratives I’ve come across this season. A movie made by a bunch of true believers in the script.
Ashta-Chamma (TE) – As already stated in the review, a new age Telugu comedy and my favorite Telugu flick of the year. Adaptation excellence and humor that sticks on to you for a long time.
Dasavathaaram (TA) – Despite 2 to 3 totally unrelated characters, missing Kamal’s remarkable ten is unintelligent. The Ulaga Nayagan’s magnum opus. Watch it for Kamal.
Ghajini (H) – It had been a known issue of how remakes of South Indian flicks turn out to be terrible in the North Indian circuit. But, the Oscar nominated Khan doesn’t follow the other sheep of the flock. It’s a must watch for Hindi movie people (only).
Saroja (TA) – Even though the film’s Telugu version was a failure, the Tamil version helped Venkat Prabhu to continue his voyage of movies about everyday idiots.
Subramaniyapuram (TA) – A fairy tale journey for the whole crew. An adaptation of a movie as insane as ‘A Clockwork Orange’ to have such commercial success is a thing which can happen only in one state (Tamil Nadu).
Welcome To Sajjanpur (H) – The brand names are brand names (Benegal) for what they are capable of. Fun to watch and an Indian movie to be proud of.
Gamyam (TE) – A good adaptation of Buddha’s life. Allari Naresh once again proving that he’s going to stay here for a long long time.
