It’s that time of the year when we look back and analyse the year gone by, in terms of movies creating benchmarks and setting the box office cash registers ringing and our favourite actors who made their on-screen characters memorable, gave outstanding performances and left a long-lasting impact on audiences and their fans.
Here is looking at the top 5 performances that outshined all others this year and came through larger than life on screen, winning the hearts of the audience.
From the year’s biggest blockbuster to career’s finest performance, Kartik Aaryan has outshined all this year. With Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, he pulled in the masses back to the theatres, delivering the first blockbuster from the industry, grossing over 250 crores world wide at the box office and continuing a successful run on OTT too, thereafter. He is now winning the hearts of critics and masses with his completely new, dark and terrifying role with his spine-chilling thriller, Freddy. He will next be seen in Satyaprem Ki Katha, Aashiqui 3, Shehzada and Kabir Khan’s untitled next.
Hats off to Deepika Padukone for pulling off yet another challenging and out of the box character with great aplomb in ‘Gehraiyaan’ that created awareness about mental illness. Only a seasoned actor and prolific performer like Deepika could have done justice to her character which will be remembered by the audience and her fans for a long time.
Even though Hrithik Roshan just had one hit to his credit this year, his performance as Vedha (mouthing Bhojpuri accent) in ‘Vikram Vedha’ opposite Saif Ali Khan not just won him laurels and accolades but also made it one of the most memorable characters of his filmography. That’s HR’s magic!
Alia Bhatt has been the most buzzing Bollywood actress of the year for her multiple releases this year, each time winning love for her performances and sometimes, more than others. While Brahmastra may have done higher numbers on the box office, her performance in Gangubai Kathiawadi was the one that truly won her all appreciation and love from the world.
With his much-loved film of the year Drishyam 2 Ajay Devgn has left everyone impressed with an amazing story and his brilliant performance not only are the netizens saying this but even the box office numbers of the film. Throughout the year, the actor has given us multiple appearances be it making strong cameos in films like Gangubai Kathiawadi, and RRR to his stand-alone releases like Runway 34, and Thank God, Ajay Devgn’s performance has never disappointed us on any grounds.
With his path breaking release ‘Kantara’, Rishabh Shetty went on to become a name that ruled all across the world with its strong content. Rishabh headlined the film as a writer, director, and actor, going on to top all the records. While the actor left everyone impressed with his brilliant performance he is one who has been credited for bringing such an interesting story from the heartlands of India in front of the world.
