The Most Successful Bollywood Events Of 2022



Alia-Ranbir Wedding

  1. Ranbir-Alia Wedding: They married in a  rush, made their fans  gush, and quickly became  papa  and mommy to  beautiful little Raha. Karan Johar who is Alia’s godfather says  Raha is  the most beautiful baby he has seen.After his own twins, of course. Alia is  supposed  to  resume work in February 2023. Something tells  me she won’t be  able  to tear herself away from her second home production(after Darlings, it is her  little darling).
  2. Karan  Johar’s chat show:  Koffee with Karan aired for the seventh season in 2022. Ever since its inception in 2014 it has established  a reputation for getting uncomfortable answers out of  top stars,creating a sexy ambience where  stars blurt out things that they regret later. As  Aamir Khan shrewdly observed  this season, anyone who comes on Karan’s show gets  into trouble. The same happened this season too. The stars love  Karan and  surrender to his whimsical propensity for  sensationalism. Koffee With Karan is  the most popular film-related chat show ever and the saving grace on the doddering  Disney+Hotstar streaming platform.
  3. The  Kashmir Files: Phenomenal impact of a political drama that  spared  us  none of  the  gruesome details of the  genocide of Kashmiri Pandits,  The  Kashmir Files opened up a  debate on  the  marriage of  politics  and cinema.  Should cinema  be a tool for propagating the political  reality,  no matter how  unpalatable?  Director Vivek Agnihotri won’t pause for  applause or approval . He will push on with his thorny tenets and uncomfortable home truth, no matter how the rightwingers smirk. It’s impossible  to tell  what Agnihotri is  more angry about:  the actual genocide(genocide, not exodus , we are  told repeatedly)  or the  whitewashing-subversion  of  it by the architects  of Indian  history.Why is it that  so much literature is  available on  the Jew  holocaust and  not  the Kashmiri Pandits’ genocide? Agnihotri spares  us  none  of  the  brutality that the  Pandits faced as  they were told to vacate their  homes overnight. The Kashmir Files would  have worked better  if it had steered away from  inducing horror and  disgust through numbers. The  idea  that the film puts forward—of an entire creed being annihilated  by fundamentalists—is so crushing in  its implications that numbers  cease  to matter.What  really counts is  the impressive credibility Agnihotri brings to the polemical drama.
