Kaminey: (Hindi - 2009)
The story of two identical twins who live with conflicting personalities. I thoroughly enjoyed the film, reminded me of City of God. It has a very universal script and on the making front it speaks the same language which was introduced by Tarantino and adopted by film makers all over. Hindi cinema is taking the straight route to acclaim, there was Dev-d and now Kaminey. Welcome.

The Kite Runner(English - 2007)
There are some movies which go beyond cinema, the films which makes you forget the film language, you dont care how the screenplay works, how the camera lights a scene, nothing, you watch them for the story. I watched The Kite Runner for the way it unfolded, for the humanity it proposed and for the most up-lifting climax i have ever seen in a motion picture.

Persepolis (French - 2007)
"It might seem that her story is too large for one 98-minute film, but "Persepolis" tells it carefully, lovingly and with great style. It is infinitely more interesting than the witless coming-of-age Western girls we meet in films; in spirit, in gumption, in heart. While so many films about coming of age involve manufactured dilemmas, here is one about a woman who indeed does come of age, and magnificently." ~ Roger Ebert
