    There were many financially successful as well as critically acclaimed movies released in 2012.

    Here is our pick of the best movies released in 2012 on pure basis of quality irrespective of its box office success (in no particular order).

    Barfi!: Shot superbly across the stunning locales of Darjeeling and the by lanes of Kolkata, Barfi! is not a love story but a poignant story about love. Armed with a deceptively light hearted, yet layered script, once in a lifetime performance by the three leads - Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra & Ileana- and intuitive direction by Anurag Basu.

    Makkhi: Eternal love stories is an epic subject, yet Makkhi does it with more precision and leaves us awestruck! A fly is the protagonist of the film and is ready to fight for his love Bindu (Samantha) and keep her safe from the world. Wow! Does it sound too peculiar to believe?

    Following to the stupendous success of its Telugu version Eega, renowned filmmaker Rajamouli, who took imaginative and creative cinema to new heights released the Hindi dubbed version of his cinematic marvel titled Makkhi.

    Makkhi, is a perfect example of the wonders a human brain can do if you just let it wander out of the box.

    Gattu: A festival circuit favorite, Gattu is a light hearted film that leaves the heart heavy with surprise and the wonderful acting of the child artist Mohammad Samad leaves is beyond expressions. The battle with the mysterious kite and the 'spirit to win' brought out by Gattu is bound to bring alive the kid within you!

    Chittagong: Bedabrata Pain's effort to resurrect a rather native yet important revolution in history receives immense critical acclaim on its release. Manoj Bajpai as Masterda Surya Sen reestablishes the fact that he is the seasoned actor that Indian Cinema could ever have.

    The Chittagong uprising is beautifully laid out in front of us and remains more as a document of the actual event for the time to come. Music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and Resul Pookutty is a stealer in itself.

    Paan Singh Tomar: Paan Singh Tomar is not just any other biopic, it's much more. It raises the bar of Indian cinema and shouts out loud for a deserving watch. Tigmanshu Dhulia yet again wins our hearts with his brilliant cast selections and simple yet historically rich storyline.

    The Director takes to his advantage that only a little has been written or known about Paan Singh and saves his film from turning into a documentary. He blends the facts with fiction, adding the adequate amount of emotions and drama that make his film for a gripping and edgy watch.

    Irrfan Khan breathes life into the historic figure and with his acting prowess proves yet again why he is the most sought after 'actor' in this film industry.

    English Vinglish: Sridevi's comeback and Gauri Shinde's debut are not the only reason why one should watch English Vinglish!

    The film with its simplistic narrative is a much bigger reason for its success. The story can be easily summed up into a single line but the effect that the film leaves is something that will not be gone quite easily.

    OMG! Oh My God!: A power packed performance by Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal is something to really look forward to in the film Oh My God!

    A brilliant subject that has not been explored before in mainstream Bollywood also makes Oh My God! a winner. Akshay Kumar as lord Krishna and his keychain are both iconic. Fighting a battle with God is in itself a surreal assumption, yet the remarkable story style and treatment makes one believe in the unbelievable.

    Gangs Of Wasseypur: Coming from the Anurag Kashyap stable the peculiarity of the treatment of the very rustic subject, was one of the most obvious things to look forward to in Gangs Of Wasseypur. But, along with the Anurag Kashyap effect the cast also redefined the peculiarity of the simple storyline.

    Typical local rowdy lingo, superb folk song influenced soundtrack adds up to the raunchy effect of the script and reinforces the epic effect initiated by Kashyap.

    Kahaani: Mrs. Bagchi's quest for her husband couldn't have been possible without inspector Sarthaki. Sujoy Ghose narrates the Kahaani of this journey of the would be mother for her child's father. Set in lanes and bylanes of Kolkata, Kahaani ultimately ends with a surprise that reinforces the appeal of kahaani and makes it worth a watch!

    Vicky Donor: Annu Kapoor's acting, Ayushmann Khurrana's brilliant screen presence and Shoojit Sircar's script was all that was required to make Vicky donor a success. Earning three times more than its production cost the film won hearts with the easy going storyline, acting and of course 'pani da'!

    Talaash: A gripping first half and an overdramatic closure makes Talaash a film worth exploring. When the heart is weak it always attracts the paranormal. Inspector Shekhawat's quest for a killer helps him on his journey of life, revealing a lot of ifs and buts of life through death!

    Supermen Of Malegaon: Centered around the small town Malegaon of Maharastra, Supermen Of Malegaon is more a documentary based on the film making passion of the people of this small town.

    The film is bound to make you content and surprised with the efforts of the 'supermen of Malegaon' as they keep their spirits alive to create Bollywood spoofs. Unfortunately the film was released in local theatres only after the untimely death of Faiza Ahmad Khan, the director of Supermen Of Malegaon.
