To begin with, 2017 wasn’t much of a commercially successful year for the Hindi film industry but many atypical movies were loved by the audience. With increasing variety in the moviemaking scene, we are sure the coming times is going to see a major merge between mainstream and parallel cinema.
While this year clearly belonged to the talented Rajkummar Rao, the only A Lister star to shine was Akshay Kumar because of his social issue movies. Some huge star backed bandwagons like Harry Met Sejal, Tubelight, Jagga Jasoos, bombed at the box office and failed to garner critical acclaim. Kangana Ranaut had major flops, Rangoon & Simran.
