Aside: it's so hard to take this category seriously given that Darr, Dabangg, and Devdas have won it. Has anyone written a good rant about this?
Speaking of lists, Titli, with its touches of Ray's Nayak, should come up more often when we discuss movies about the film industry. While that's not its principal concern (mother-daughter relationships are), it makes plenty of observations. In some ways, the three leads play versions of themselves, yet I catch no lazy writing that depends on, say, Aparan and Konkona being actual mother and daughter. It's so sweet, with people who actually talk to each other and its wistfulness cocooned in the mists of forests around Darjeeling.
