It’s been a strange sort of a year for Bollywood. Where I say strange, I actually mean refreshing. We’ve seen a very mixed breed of Hindi movies taking to screens and a new breed of leading men who are slighting the hold of the mighty Khans on the Box Office. We’ve also seen the oft-used formula of the Big-Fat-Indian Wedding wane away in 2015.
Now I’m no movie expert or critic. In fact, I’ve been accused of being too easy-to-please when it came to films, in general. However, I felt this current crop of films deserved a mention and to be discovered by people who are playing catch up with tinsel town’s releases this year. Here’s my compilation, sorted in order of release (earliest to most recent), of the best Hindi or Bollywood movies of 2015, till September 18, 2015.

Unfortunately, none of the above movies are on Netflix yet. So for now, you’ll either have to make do with watching it on TV channels if you are in India, or on iTunes.
If you've watched these movies, which one was your favourite? Leave me a comment below.
