The Year of Trisha

Team FC

Before everyone was smitten with Janu in 96, there was Jessie in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa (2010). But much before either, between 2004 & 2005 Trisha worked in more than 9 Tamil/Telugu films alongside Prabhas, Vijay, Mahesh Babu among others - winning two Filmfare awards and becoming an overnight sensation. (Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana narrowly misses 2004 as it released in Jan 2005). It was also the year confused men found purpose in their lives (Swades, Lakshya, Yuva,etc.) while some found the true meaning of life in a bike - Suzuki Hayabusa.
Action/crime classics covered the entire spectrum of dark to comical - from Black Friday to Khakee to Ocean's Twelve to Dhoom.
2004 gave us Eternal Sunshine..., Before Sunset, The Notebook and The Girl Next Door- movies yet to leave our collective cultural conscious popping up as quotes, memes and video essays every week.
And lastly we got the amazing Downfall in German - parodies of which suddenly sprang up in 2019 after the passing of the lead actor Bruno Ganz, helping many discover the movie. What is your favourite movie from this year?
