Bollywood is still not done with the masala films, but an audience can always choose. I took an oath to stay away from cinematic thrash this year. While there where occasional let-downs: R. Balki’s Shamitabh & Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet to name a few, there where some really surprising films like Harshavardhan G. Kulkarni’s Hunterrr & Neeraj Pandey’s Baby. But Unlike last year, 2015’s mid-list had a lot of gems and the later part of the year mostly was cold, except three films in the list that follows:

Titli is not a story of a dysfunctional family, because calling these set of ruthless people dysfunctional will be an understatement. But even in this relentlessly downbeat tale of ghastly inane characters there is a coming-of-age film that’s just looking for proper wings to fly away from the gun & the hammer. The title character Titli is not a butterfly because not even in it’s lightest moments you see any glimmer of beauty. But he is a spider who is hanging by a very thin thread of lies, betrayal and double-cross, and yet he is trying hard, not fall off.
