Probably the biggest movie flimflam of 2018, Ranbir Kapoor plays the biopic of Sanjay Dutt and controversial atmosphere surrounding his life. With an astounding 8.3 ratings in IMDb, it is difficult to debate that no other actor could have Ranbir’s Sanjay Dutt unless of course it is Sanjay Dutt himself.
Barfi

Although the theme of Barfi surrounds around love like so many other Bollywood movies, you have to give it to Ranbir for playing out the hearing and speech-impaired Barfi. Just like his speechless character, Barfi left the audience speechless.
Rockstar

Rockstar like most Bollywood movies is about the impossible love story of a rich, culturally-different girl and an aspiring poor boy which only Ranbir can make enthralling. Rockstar also surrounds around the theme of unbending determination of never giving up on one’s dream, which in the movie is to become a Rockstar.
Wake Up Sid!

From the simpleton Janardhan to a spoilt and selfish college student, Siddharth Mehra, Ranbir’s morphing into other characters are limitless. Like the Name of the movie, Wake Up Sid Ranbir wakes up to the meaning of life after meeting the inspiring writer from Kolkata, Aisha.
Tamasha

Tamasha received mixed reviews from the audience but the movie has to be included in this list because what may fail to see in Imtiaz Ali’s portrayal of Ved’s character is the gradual and slow mental declining of modern day youngsters. The movie is heart-breaking as it is awakening.
