We at BollySpice love using IMDB.com, the largest internet movie database in the world. It aggregates reviews and scores from users and film critics alike, from across the globe, for literally every film made on the planet! We find it one of the fairest and most comprehensive source of information on films.
We all know that the Indian film industry is one of the world’s biggest, churning out the highest amount of films, so like us, you will be delighted to know that 8 Bollywood films made the top 50 list of ‘Highest rated feature films released in 2012 with at least 1,000 votes’. That’s quite an achievement, given that those films feature alongside some Oscar nominated films and world cinema greats!
The films in ascending order are: Talaash (number 49), Shanghai (47), Vicky Donor (24), English Vinglish (18), OMG: Oh My God! (16), Kahaani (11), Barfi! (5), Gangs of Wasseypur (4). Now do keep in mind that it is users who influence this list, but regardless of that we all know that 2012 was a fantastic year for Indian cinema, and with an exciting lineup for 2013, we are sure there will be many users gracing IMDB.com to air their views.
