Another thrilling year has come to end and we got the opportunity to watch diverse films with unique concepts and cadmiring performances which has not only increased the fan base of Bollywood cinemas not just in India but in the entire world.
The ticket prices of the cinemas surged thanks to the inflation but also were the audience watching the films in theaters. Few films did caught my attention this time but more than that was the towering performances by the lead actors who not only lured the audience to the theaters but also impressed the movie critics. Let us check out the top actress who were stunning outstanding in their role :-
Anushka Sharma – Sultan & Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
“Sultan” is a well-made wrestling drama which delivers a solid punch. Despite Salman Khan as lead, Anushka Sharma as Aarfa was equally competent and shined in her well-defined character. Being in a multi-star cast, Anushka Sharma was mind-blowing in Karan Johar’s blockbuster “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”. The irony is it was Karan Johar who rejected Anushka Sharma’s audition in her first film “Rab Ne Bana De Jodi”.
Alia Bhatt – Udta Punjab & Dear Zindagi
Among the four main protagonist in “Udta Punjab”, Alia Bhatt steals the show. The gifted actor is simply superb as Biharan who lands herself as a immigrant in Punjab. Watch out for her when she kills the guy responsible for her messy state by continuously venting out her frustration. It was Alia Bhatt’s show all the way in “Dear Zindagi” as well. The gorgeous actress has probably given one of the best performance of her life as Kaira which is something similar to her character Veera from “Highway”
Tapsee Pannu & Kirti Kulhari – Pink
Tapsee Pannu and Kirti Kulhari were mindblowing with their natural performances. It was unforgettable performance which should be lauded for its sheer brilliance despite being in front of titan called Amitabh Bachchan.
Swara Bhaskar – Nil Battey Sannata
Swara Bhaskar steals the thunder with her electrifying performance. The “Tanu Weds Manu” actor is just growing better with each film. Surprisingly, this is her first film as a lead and she has displayed matured acting. Watch for her. She definitely has long way to go.
Radhika Apte – Phobia & Parched
It is Radhika Apte all the way. She goes into the character of Mahek and gives her best. This will be her best performances of her life till now. Rest of the cast does justice to their part. Radhika Apte is just growing well with each film. “Parched” was yet another knockout performance from her.
Sonam Kapoor – Neerja
Often criticized for her lame roles and even lamer acting, Sonam Kapoor proved everybody wrong. Sonam Kapoor, for a change, does justice to the powerful character of Neerja Bhanot in “Neerja”. The actor looks and gets into the character which shows her honesty.
Vidya Balan – Kahaani 2
“Kahaani 2” was a taut thriller that was dark and edgy. However, the movie was a good watch thanks to electrifying performance by Vidya Balan. The brilliant actress just gets into the character of Durga Rani Singh and give her best.
