1. Bodyguard Has Arrived

4. The Real Rocker?
Rockstar released to largely positive reviews but, quite ironically, failed to impress musicians.
While the masses, who can't tell two different kinds of guitars apart, loved the film which is about a musician, there were others who didn't approve of Imtiaz Ali's immature treatment of a relatively untouched genre.

6. Ra.One Takes The Bigg Apple
Ra.one continued its dismal performance when it opened in New York theatres, which is quite surprising since Shah Rukh Khan has a huge fan base overseas and worse films have made money there.

7. Mums And Item Numbers
Malaika Arora Khan's Munni act prompted us to dig for other mommies from Bollywood who'd fired up the screen with their sensational dance numbers.

Vidya Balan was hot topic all throughout the year. Her role-of-a-lifetime in The Dirty Picture cemented her position as the only 'real' actress in Bollywood.
Everything about the film was a talking point for fans too.
