This year was not path breaking but there were some films which broke the stereotypes. Thus such films have been preferred over regular masala films.
Here are top 10 Bollywood films of 2016 in the order of preference.
Salman Khan gave one of his career best performance in wrestling drama Sultan. He danced and sung Baby Ko Base Pasand Ha but at the end, he submitted to the plot by gaining a lot of weight and played an underdog which is rare. The character of Sultan Ali Khan was inspiring.
9. Nil Battey Santa
A small film but made with a big heart. Swara Bhaskar was too good.
The most hyped film of 2016, Fan did not live up to the expectations. But it was Shahrukh Khan’s best film in last few years. We also saw the actor SRK which was missing in his recent masala films. If only the ending could have changed, it would have been a better experience.
An important film which gave an important message that when a girl says no, it means no. Though it had Amitabh in the lead but it were the three girls which stole the show.
Akshay Kumar gave a top notch performance in this real life-based film. The production design and cinematography were excellent too as they created the environment of war in such a low budget. The flag scene gave too many goosebumps and the tight editing kept you on the edge of the seat.

3. Udta Punjab
After a lot of controversies, Udta Punjab released and received a lot of attention. It was shocking, brutal but honest. Alia Bhatt, Diljit Dosanjh, Shahid Kapoor and Kareena were brilliant throughout the film. It was a brave attempt which only few will dare to do.
Only Aamir Khan can show such a dedication for a film. Based on the real life Mahavir Phogat, who trained his daughters to become champions, Dangal was full of inspiration and patriotism. Aamir sidelined him and let the girls do the talking especially in the climax. No doubt only Aamir can do that.
Kapoor and Sons
Kapoor and Sons had all the commercial elements of Bollywood yet it dealt with some sensitive family issues. Rajat Kapoor, Ratna Pathak and Fawad Khan gave memorable performances. It made you smile, laugh and cry at the same time. The climax scene was one of the most dramatic ever.
Apart from these films, we would also like to mention Kahaani 2, Saala Khadoos, Mohenjo Daro, Dhanak, Dear Zindagi and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
