If there is one defining motif for 2012 it is the fact that Hindi cinema traveled outside its comfort zone of using the background of Punjab and explored the diverse landscape of the country with a panache and it is those who undertook this experimentation gave a new sense of identity to Hindi cinema. It was more a return of native who reveled in his nativity which endeared the audience, and here are those native films of 2012:
PAAN SINGH TOMAR
PAAN SINGH TOMAR: Set in the landscape of Chambal, the story of a steeplechase runner, turned dacoit, it caught the imagination of the public on account of the element of rustiness imbued in it, be it the landscape, the location or the dialogues. It was reportage from the background and audience all over the world lapped it up.
