On one hand there have been films which were promoted on huge scale and did business of more than 100 crores, there is a flip side to this development as well in the world of Hindi cinema for the year 2012. There were films which were released without much fancy and owing to the innovative nature of the content that they had, they emerged as surprise hits, or rather sleeper hits, i.e. they gained in the footfalls by the word of mouth publicity. 2012 has indeed shown the way that the Indian film viewing public has matured and it is open to embrace content which is 'zara hat ke', and it is a morale booster for such film making fraternity to keep on trying to beat the untreated path. One thing that needs to be underlined here is that these films would not have even hit the cinemahalls, and would continue to be a part of the festival circuits were it not for the fact that the production houses of the likes of UTV or the producers of the likes of John Abraham and Akshay Kumar would not have backed them. Here then is a trip down memory lane for such films of 2012.

PAAN SINGH TOMAR: Tigmanshu Dhulia directed story of a steeple chase runner, played with conviction by Irrfan Khan was among the first such sleeper hits, which made the audience sit up and take notice. It was the first real sports film of India and also looked into the circumstances which force a law abiding citizen to stand against law, without the melodrama associated with the process.
