The 13 Best-Loved Madaboutmoviez.com Articles of 2013

December is the month of lists so this time we decided why not publish a list on some of our posts which garnered your attention. We have compiled 13 posts over here and one common factor across all these posts were authors wrote passionately Ranjhaanaabout a particular movie which they liked or disliked or in some case how difficult it was to follow passion of acting. We decided to get back to the respective authors and asked them them to write a short note on what went into writing these posts and the reactions they received after publication of the post. Wishing all our readers of MAM, a very Happy New Year and hope you continue to support us.

Having been a witness to several love stories, from their inception to burial, I had come to realize that people are never to be blamed for break-ups. There is a limit to which our hormones (the stimulant behind that feeling called ‘love’) can push us to remain committed. Eventually, economy, society and egos do get better of everything. Raanjhanaa seemed to echo all that I had always felt about love in India. Writing about it was extremely cathartic. But what followed it was no less than an experience.Continue reading “The 13 Best-Loved Madaboutmoviez.com Articles of 2013”

The Best of Malayalam Cinema in 2013: A Perspective

Ramzan Malayalam ReleasesCompared to 2012 which was a landmark year of sorts for Malayalam Cinema 2013 was a little uneven year of sorts. But 2013 is a unique year for Malayalam Cinema where in terms of quantity of output Malayalam saw the maximum number of straight releases as compared to any other Indian language (apparently 158 straight releases and 12 dubbed releases with Tamil being a close second with 149 straight releases).  In terms of films which were clear trendsetters maybe the number of exceptional films weren’t too many, but keeping in mind that 2013 wasn’t an exceptionally special year for Indian Cinema per se, the output of Malayalam Cinema was still quite impressive. Sure the industry had its fair share of disappointments but then they do not outweigh the things which worked positively. Before I go on to talk about the films which made a difference in the year, let’s first look at some of the significant developments and aspects that were observed over the year.Continue reading “The Best of Malayalam Cinema in 2013: A Perspective”

My Best Of Regional and World Cinema In 2013

Yet another hectic and eventful year at the movies comes to an end. Every year we see films which we love, hate, abhor, feel indifferent towards. And this year has been no indifferent.

As the year draws to an end, every film buff (including yours truly) loves making a compilation of films under various such categories (good films, bad films etc)

As a movie buff this year too was no different.  There were some films, which made for pleasurable viewing while some films induced sheer boredom and made for a rather tedious viewing.  Regional cinema (esp. Tamil and Malayalam films) in my opinion once again reiterated that they are churning out films which are different from the regular fares, yet makes for some good viewing  while being commercially viable .

Besides there were a lot of foreign language films which made all the right noises amongst movie buffs and the film festival circuits.

So here goes my list of best films in the foreign films and regional cinema section.

Too many films and too little time has been the bane of every film buff. As always there were quite a few films I wanted to watch but could not due to various reasons. So in case you do not find a particular favourite of yours mentioned in this list, kindly excuse me. 🙂
