3 Idiots
Rancho is the rebel among them always questioning things and believing that learning is more than just the usual mode of education.
He encourages his friends to look beyond the ordinary and soon earns the wrath of the college director Viru Sahasrabuddhe (Boman Irani).
Despite his fun and frolic, Rancho always surprises everyone by topping the class. He even manages to win the affections of the director's daughter Pia (Kareena Kapoor). But Rancho's greatest contribution lies is making his friends realise their true calling. 
The twist comes when on Graduation Day. After being awarded the Student Of The Year title, Rancho mysteriously disappears into oblivion. 
Years later, Farhan and Raju, finding a common thread, embark on a journey to find their friend. 3 Idiots is a story of friendship, hope, aspirations and most importantly, the goodness of life. (Mid-Day)

Taare Zameen Par
This movie success made me crying..
Come to think of it, after two back-to-back hits, Aamir Khan could've given a positive nod to any masala flick and chosen to work with anyone he desired. But he preferred to make a film on a dyslexic kid, make him the focal point of the story and don three caps—producer, actor and director.
At the very outset, let's make one thing clear. Taare Zameen Par isn't one of those films that merely entertains, but also enlightens. Taare Zameen Par is one film that makes you peep into a child's mind and how some parents, in their pursuit to make them 'stronger' academically, forget that there's hitherto untapped talent that needs to be nourished and encouraged.

Fanaa
The epic Bollywood extravaganza "Fanaa" goes so far over the top that it reinvents itself halfway and launches on a brand new trajectory of the absurd. We begin in the provinces, where a beautiful blind girl, Zooni (Kajol), is pitied for her lack of a husband. On arriving in Delhi to perform a spectacular song-and-dance number for the annual Independence Day celebration, she falls in love with Rehan, a smarmy, over-accessorized tour guide (Aamir Khan).
Their insipid romance is fortified by exchanges of poetry, impromptu musical numbers and frolics through metropolitan splendor, all of which is undermined by an ugliness of spirit that allows for a delightful woman to fall (empty) head over (obedient) heels for a repugnant leading man. Credit the director, Kunal Kohli, for the old-fashioned simplicity of his storytelling, if not for his primitive sexual politics.
Yet just when "Fanaa" threatens to drown you in a candy-colored sea of saccharin — this being the moment when Zooni checks into the hospital for a miraculous retina replacement — the narrative springs its trap. Next thing you know it's Kashmiri militants blowing up helicopters, gunfights on snowmobiles, double crosses, decoded messages and people thrown off cliffs. Hooray for Bollywood!
The Zooni-Rehan affair fails to parse as anything but a maudlin genre construct, but once they're reconfigured in the second half of this very long film, the idea of their relationship is clarified. "Fanaa" ends up a surprisingly tough-minded dramatization of an antiromantic thesis.
"To choose between right and wrong is simple," Zooni's mother had cautioned, "but what defines life is the decision between the greater of two goods or the lesser of two evils."
"Fanaa" mines this conceit with an operatic extravagance — and a body count — that the Korean pulpmeister Park Chan Wook would envy. (New York Times - Movies)
My Name is Khan - And I am not a Terrorist
Ok, let's get this straight from the very beginning. It's Khan, from the epiglotis (read deep, inner recesses), not `kaan' from the any-which-way, upper surface. In other words, it's the K-factor -- Karan (Johar) and Khan (Shah Rukh) -- like you've never seen, sampled and savoured before. My Name is Khan is indubitably one of the most meaningful and moving films to be rolled out from the Bollywood mills in recent times. It completely reinvents both the actor and the film maker and creates a new bench mark for the duo who has given India some of the crunchiest popcorn flicks. This time round, it's a whole new mantra for the two moguls and the Indian movie industry per se which might henceforth go something like: My name is Bollywood and I'm not just an entertainer. I have a whole lot to say and I'll say it in style....  (Times of India)

Paa
Paa is a well written and directed film, with adequate amount of emotions, fun and fabulous performances. The second half is brilliant with enough in it to keep you hooked. But the film suffers from a comparatively weaker first half. The pre interval portions deal with Abhishek’s political career and his rivalries, not exactly what you expect while walking in with expectations of a touching father-son tale.
But the second half more than makes up for it and its this half that makes Paa a tremendously satisfying watch. Watch out for the tear-inducing sequences involving Auro and also those light hearted moments all of which are written, executed and performed to perfection.
The music is average. The ‘Mere Paa’ track is good. The makeup by (Domini Till, Christien Tinsley) deserve special mention for turning Bachchan into a realistic looking Progeria patient.
Coming to the performances, Amitabh Bachchan delivers inarguably the best performance of the year. While I would still rate Black a notch higher, Paa is pure brilliance from a legend who is by far the best actor in the industry. Abhishek Bachchan is good, and so are Vidya Balan and Paresh Rawal. But the senior Bachchan’s character is such that it easily out shines the others.
Overall, Paa had potential to be a much better film than it turned out to be. Watch it for the powerful second half and an award worthy performance by the legendary Bachchan. (Indicine)
