We always feel, this decade has passed fast. Lets linger back on some moments.  When the decade began it was a curiosity, who will lead this decade? Who will be the star for this decade?


Many talents donned the directorial chair for the first Vijay Lalwani with Karthik Calling Karthik, Parmeet Sethi with Badmaash Company, Muddassar Aziz with Dulha Mil Gaya and Abhishek Chaubey’s delightful Ishqiya. Some  others like directors like Maneesh Sharma of Band Baaja Baaraat, Punit Malhotra of I Hate Luv Storys, Habib Faisal of Do Dooni Char and Abhinav Kashyap of Dabangg have emerged to the forefront.

Indian experimental cinema welcomed new professionals joining in,  Anusha Rizvi and Mahmood Farooqui with Peepli Live, Abhishek Sharma with Tere Bin Laden, Vikramaditya Motwane with Udaan, Sushil Rajpal with Antardwand and Faruk Kabir with Bollywood’s take on City of God — Allah Kay Bandey. It is not the matter of box-office but it is a positive sign that Bollywood is growing with content and style.


While director Dibakar Banerjee gave us a new concept of cyberworld. new talent, Neha Chauhan, Arya Banerjee, Raj Kumar, Herry Tangri, Amit Sial, Anshuman Jha Atul Mongia became familiar faces.

Pakistani singer Ali Zafar won many hearts with his acting debut in the comic satire Tere Bin Laden. Yash Raj Films gave a chance to Maneesh Sharma in Band Baaja Baaraat and fresh face Ranvir Singh was introduced to Bollywood.

This decade has been a success to many than to tears for few. Film TV OTT and UGC content was the highlight of this decade. These films brew many stories. And stories are to be told.
