#TheUKAsian List: Bollywood in 2014 - An Alternate List

The 100-Crore, 200-Crore and now 300-crore success of films such as 'Chennai Express', 'Krrish 3' and 'Dhoom 3' didn't deflect from the fact that 2013 was a hugely successful year for films that are not the usual Bollywood fare.  The critical and commercial Films such as 'Shahid', 'The Lunchbox', 'Ship of Theseus' and 'Kai Po Che' were testament to the fact that filmmakers aren't merely interested in marginal special effects and boy-meets-girl-then-beats-up-lots-of-bad-guys narratives.  

2014 is going to be an equally intriguing year for fans of movies that don't numb the senses on the way to massive box-office collections.  Yes there will be a HUGE Salman Khan release; there'll be yet another Shah Rukh Khan fleecing at the box office at Diwali and a Hrithik Roshan romance at Christmas.  In between, there's going to be some choice cuts. 

Here's a taster.

UGLY

The perfect start to 2014, Anurag Kashyap's psychological drama promises plenty of thrills. Set in Mumbai, 'Ugly' has multiple themes, from child abduction and family breakdowns to police corruption and ambition. The film marks the return to the director's chair for Kashyap - India's pre-eminent independent filmmaker - after producing a string of critically acclaimed films, including 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana', 'Shahid' and 'The Lunchbox'. 'Ugly' is also seen as a return to Kashyap's gritty, Mumbai roots after the two-part, 7-hour gangster epic 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. The film boasts a stellar cast, including Ronit Roy, Rahul Bhat and Vipin Sharma. 'Ugly' is in cinemas 3 January.

 

 Dedh Ishqiya

The aging, lovable and love-struck goons Khalu (Naseeruddin Shah) and Babban (Arshad Warsi) are back in this sequel to 'Ishqiya' (2010). In the original the two mismatched gangsters tried desperately to win the affections of Krishna (played by Vidya Balan). In the sequel it's the turn of Madhuri Dixit, in her eagerly-anticipated "comeback" role, to be wooed. Dixit has been widely praised for taking up an "ambiguous" and "dark" character on her return to the silver screen and the first looks of the film have been extremely promising; with the backing of the peerless Vishal Bhardwaj, it looks certain to be one of the most enjoyable romps of 2014. The film also stars 'Gangs of Wasseypur' actress Huma Qureshi. 'Dedh Ishqiya' is in cinemas 10 January.
