2018 is about to bid goodbye to all of us and let’s just admit it that this has been the best year for Bollywood, this year content triumphed while ‘Crass’ was sent to ‘Trash’.
This clearly indicates that the audience is maturing and won’t accept bad films in the name of stardom.
This year, we saw some surprising and thunderous performances; these performances surely made us fall in love with the aesthetics of the art called ‘Acting’.
Let’s have a look at some of the finest performance that happened in 2018:-
1). Varun Dhawan in ‘October’
Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’ was a melancholic celebration of longing and love. ‘October’ was a big-time win as it was successful in finally bringing us ‘Varun Dhawan’ – the actor not ‘Varun Dhawan’ – the entertainer. Varun Dhawan made me fall in love with his expressive eyes. I mean I was enthralled to see him playing such a role, the role asked him to tone down his energy and emote as much as he can with his eyes and was he successful? HELL YEAH!
2). Vicky Kaushal in ‘Raazi’
This year will always be remembered as the ‘Vicky Kaushal’ year, he came up with three films and two Netflix original and he was equally brilliant in all of them but one film where he stood out was definitely ‘Raazi’. Yes, Alia Bhatt was the sun of the film but the sunshine was definitely Vicky. It takes a lot for an actor to bring out the emotions of dilemma, love, care, confusion, and calmness but Vicky nailed it with sheer perfection.
3). Ayushman Khurrana in ‘Andhadhun’
Ayushman Khurrana – the flag bearer of ‘slice-of-life’ films finally amputated his inhibitions to play a gritty role in this year’s ‘Best Film’ (at least for me). Sriram Raghwan channelized Ayushman’s unmatched energy and sculpted a character that made us hoot loud for him. The one scene where Ayushman gets to know that his eyes are gone, damn bouyyy…Ayushman is a delight to watch in that particular scene.
4). Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta in ‘Badhaai Ho’
Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta redefined the meaning of ‘cuteness’ in this rib-tickling film. Their chemistry set many ‘AWWdorable’ goals and this was the primary reason that the film worked wonders at the box office. The scene where Gajraj stands on a rooftop and stares at Neena made everyone go gaga over these ‘Cuties’.
5). Nawazuddin Siddiqui in ‘Manto’
Manto is this decade’s most important film and Nawazuddin did not leave any stone unturned to bring the influential ‘Manto’ on screen. He aptly presented his chaotic mindset and conflicted thoughts and bowled everyone. Nandita Das deserves special mention to provide Nawaz a role that he deserved.
