Top 10 Best Bollywood Films of 2016

Top 10 Best Bollywood Films of 2016

Just like last year, we are updating the list of top 10 best Bollywood films of 2016.

This year was not path breaking but there were some films which broke the stereotypes. Thus such films have been preferred over regular masala films.

Here are top 10 Bollywood films of 2016 in the order of preference.

10. Sultan

Sultan television rating

Salman Khan gave one of his career best performance in wrestling drama Sultan. He danced and sung Baby Ko Base Pasand Ha but at the end, he submitted to the plot by gaining a lot of weight and played an underdog which is rare. The character of Sultan Ali Khan was inspiring.


9. Nil Battey Santa

A small film but made with a big heart. Swara Bhaskar was too good.


8. Fan

Fan Saturday box office collection

The most hyped film of 2016, Fan did not live up to the expectations. But it was Shahrukh Khan's best film in last few years. We also saw the actor SRK which was missing in his recent masala films. If only the ending could have changed, it would have been a better experience.


7. Pink

Pink 3rd Weekend Box Office Collection

An important film which gave an important message that when a girl says no, it means no. Though it had Amitabh in the lead but it were the three girls which stole the show.


6. Airlift

Airlift 19th Day Box Office Collection

Akshay Kumar gave a top notch performance in this real life-based film. The production design and cinematography were excellent too as they created the environment of war in such a low budget. The flag scene gave too many goosebumps and the tight editing kept you on the edge of the seat.

5. Neerja

Neerja 5th weekend Box Office Collection

Another biopic based on the tale of Neerja Bhanot was an inspirational one. Sonam Kapoor acted for the first time and made many to cry.


4. Aligarh

Based on the another real-life story of a gay professor, the film saw the best performance of 2016 by Manoj Bajpayee. The ending was heartbreaking too.


3. Udta Punjab

Udta Punjab box office collection

After a lot of controversies, Udta Punjab released and received a lot of attention. It was shocking, brutal but honest. Alia Bhatt, Diljit Dosanjh, Shahid Kapoor and Kareena were brilliant throughout the film. It was a brave attempt which only few will dare to do.


2. Dangal

Dangal Day 1 Box Office Collection

Only Aamir Khan can show such a dedication for a film. Based on the real life Mahavir Phogat, who trained his daughters to become champions, Dangal was full of inspiration and patriotism. Aamir sidelined him and let the girls do the talking especially in the climax. No doubt only Aamir can do that.

  1. Kapoor and Sons

Kapoor and Sons 4th day box office collection

Kapoor and Sons had all the commercial elements of Bollywood yet it dealt with some sensitive family issues. Rajat Kapoor, Ratna Pathak and Fawad Khan gave memorable performances. It made you smile, laugh and cry at the same time. The climax scene was one of the most dramatic ever.

Apart from these films, we would also like to mention Kahaani 2, Saala Khadoos, Mohenjo Daro, Dhanak, Dear Zindagi and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
