17. In Chance’s film Zoe Akhtar Luck, Nikki Walia (Isha Sharvani) is an insider and Sona Mishra (Sensharma Concon) an outsider – two brilliant parrots are facing each other on the table. But only insiders can wear a shiny dress in real life. There is Vikram Jasingh (Farhan Akhtar), another bird trying to find a place in the industry. If he succeeds, the birds on his shirt will fly away. The film is full of these gems. You can find the details here.

18. Dil Chakhta Hai Farhan Akhtar has also been at it for nineteen years. Every year I try to write something about a movie. But I didn’t do it this time. I just posted a couple of tweets. I hope that one day I will have the courage and honesty to write about why this film will always be special to me.
