Diwali had the two King of Romances - Yash Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan - unite for the last time to deliver the super hit 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'.Starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the female leads, the film also crossed the 100 crore mark, besides going down in history as the swan song of Chopra.'JTHJ' clashed at the box office with Ajay Devgn's 'Son of Sardaar' but did not hamper its success.
Aamir Khan dabbled in the genre of suspense drama with 'Talaash'. Directed by Reema Kagti 'Talaash' went on to earn big money in the domestic and overseas market. The film saw Aamir playing the role of a cop, Rani Mukerji his wife and Kareena Kapoor a prostitute.
Saif Ali Khan returned to romantic-comedy with 'Cocktail', a genre which has been lucky for him. Directed by Homi Adajania, 'Cocktail' also starred Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty. The film reportedly made on a budget of Rs 35 crore earned Rs 75 crore.
Saif's other film 'Agent Vinod' co-starring his now wife Kareena Kapoor dabbled with the spy thriller genre. This film had a modest fate at the box office.
Among actresses it was Katrina Kaif who had two major releases - 'Ek Tha Tiger' and 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'.
Kareena Kapoor had four releases - 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu', 'Agent Vinod', 'Heroine' and 'Talaash' out of which 'Agent Vinod' and 'Heroine' despite their hype failed to create magic at the box office.
For Priyanka Chopra 'Agneepath' was a huge hit and her 'Barfi!' performance impressed one and all. 'Teri Meri Kahani' with Shahid Kapoor was disappointing.
Sonakshi Sinha had a good year with 'Rowdy Rathore' and 'Son of Sardaar' becoming super hits but 'Joker' was a flop.
Other films that disappointed this year include Abbas-Mustan's action thriller 'Players', south director Gautham Menon's 'Ekk Deewana Tha', R Madhavan-Bipasha Basu's 'Jodi Breakers', Priyadarshan's 'Tezz', Karisma Kapoor's comeback vehicle 'Dangerous Ishq', Rani Mukherjee's 'Aiyyaa', Ram Gopal Varma's 'Bhoot Returns' and Prakash Jha's 'Chakrayuh'.
