The year 2018 has been a delight so far at least in terms of Bollywood releases so far. Most films have been high on content and the box office has appreciated their efforts handsomely. The audience flocked to the theatres this year to watch films which they felt were worth their hard earned bucks. And there were quite a few. So much so, that when it came to declare the best film of the first half of 2018, we couldn’t zero in on one. And hence we conducted a poll to ask you as to which film entertained you the most. And you should not be surprised to know that it is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat that has won the poll.
Yes, you read that right. The period film managed to score a whopping 42 per cent votes on our poll. Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in key roles, the film had released on Republic Day, and went on to win hearts. Coming a close second is Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju. The film adaptation of Sanjay Dutt’s life seems to have found quite a lot of takers and rightfully so. The film garnered 30 per cent votes. Raazi was the third favourite with 16 per cent votes. While Padman and Veere Di Wedding got 4 per cent votes each, Raid and October could only get 2 per cent votes each.

Well, it seems like the audience is really in love with Padmaavat what with both Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone having won our Best Actor and Actress polls respectively. The film was indeed a treat for the stars’ fans and the controversies plaguing its release helped it open even better than it would have otherwise. Well, now it remains to be seen if any film will be able to contest the love that Padmaavat is still receiving. The second half of the year has quite a few releases and it will be interesting to see as to which film emerges as the winner.
