Watch: Top Ten Hindi Film Trailers in 2011

Raja Sen in Mumbai

A good trailer gets you interested.

It gives you a taste of the film in a way calculated to whet your appetite and have you eager to watch the film, and the 10 trailers here did that, often proving better than the main courses, the films they advertised.

Here is my pick for the best trailers we saw this year:

10. Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster

It looks regal, violent, romantic and... cornball?

The trailer for this cleverly titled film shows off its unique cast very well, playing on Jimmy Shergill's screen presence, Randeep Hooda's edgy cool, and Mahie Gill's atypical sexuality.

9. Shaitan

It starts off upside down and, after a whirl of madcap imagery, there is soon a television set crashing down on someone's head.

The trailer for Bejoy Nambiar's debut film packs a helluva heady punch, the music video styling and the radical visuals doing their job very well indeed. The captions are a pain, but the trailer makes us curious enough to bite.

8. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Prev     Next

Zoya Akhtar's film has a great, very varied cast and the trailer gives each actor the spotlight, while shining it brightest on the location, Spain.

Three men, a bachelor trip, adventure sports, and that joyous Senorita song: the vibe is fresh enough to make you want to unwrap the package as soon as possible.

7. 7 Khoon Maaf

Prev     Next

There's intrigue splashed all over this trailer for "the story of Susanna", what with a glimpse of each of her husbands -- an eclectic bunch -- and Priyanka in dramatically different looks, even as the winning Darrling plays in the background.

6. Rockstar

Prev     Next

The big draw in Imtiaz Ali's film was always AR Rahman's music, and this trailer does a great job of cutting through Rahman's tracks, going from Tum Ho to Katiya Karun warmly enough to the hardcore

Sadda Haq, all the while showing us Ranbir like we haven't seen him before -- along with a truly beautiful girl. And bonus points for that glimpse of Shammi Kapoor.

5. Delhi Belly

Prev     Next

It starts off normally enough, with three grungy boys, but the moment we realise this is more than the standard Bollywood product is when we see Imran Khan staring down at an erection.

Vijay Raaz laconically says 'surprise,' and we are. Even before Bhaag bhaag kicks off.

4. Agneepath

Prev     Next

There was many a doubter when Karan Johar announced Hrithik Roshan as his candidate to play Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, one of Amitabh Bachchan's most feted roles, but this trailer makes skepticism appear irrelevant.

This is a big, broad masala movie with outrageous characters and no room for subtlety, at least in the trailer, and it looks impossibly appealing.

3. Don 2

Prev     Next

You thought you'd seen the last of me, says an embittered Shah Rukh Khan.

Well, you ain't seen nothing yet. The slickness on display in the trailer for this Farhan Akhtar film is smashing. It looks slick, glossy and better than most Hollywood actioners, at least in these two minutes.

And Don's line about his mother is priceless.

2. No One Killed Jessica

Prev     Next

This one starts with immediate impact.

Opening with solid blocks of text from a police interrogation, this trailer introduces us to its characters in no-nonsense fashion, and then lets Amit Trivedi's fantastic Dilli-Dilli track fo the talking. Hard-hitting, and how.

1. The Dirty Picture

The most talked about trailer this year, this made everyone sit up and take notice. (And feel free to read that sentence any which way you choose.)

Vidya Balan, in one fell swoop, stole everyone's thunder. Literally.
