What's up with you, Hindi cinema? Why such a humdrum year? There's been some Good, sure, but it's been outweighed by The Bad and, most importantly, by The Ordinary. Too little has stood out this year. Where's the greatness? Here's a look at the best and the worst of 2017 so far.
The top spot:

S S Rajamouli's Baahubali 2 is a historic success, the biggest Indian film of all time, and with both action and iconography intact, the sequel proved to be even better than the original. Hype for Rajamouli's next project and the inevitable continuation of the Baahubali cinematic universe continues, and leading man Prabhas has hit megastardom in the best way possible. Nothing else came close. Read the full review here.
