1. Dostana – A layered plot, unmatchable trio and an unexpected ending…what more can we say about this film.

2. Girlfriend Chor – Dice Creator Network Presents an MX Exclusive Series ‘Girlfriend Chor’ – a hatke take on a lovelorn college guy, Akash (Mayur More) who has been friend zoned (AGAIN!) and decides that he is done being in the friend zone and its time to amp it up to battle zone to win back his girl.

4. JaaneTu…YaJaane Na – Do you have that one friend who means the world to you? Like Meow has Rats? ‘Jane TuYa Jane Na’, made us all want that one friend, that ‘Aditi’ or ‘Jay’ in our lives.

With a robust cast, the film was remarkably welcomed by the audiences
5. How I Met Your Mother – They say,being in the friendzone is like being a fish in an aquarium with one of those decorative castles. The girl you like is in the castle, waving at you and even coming out to swim with you from time to time. She has no idea you like her and considers you as a friend she can hang out with. And this this exactly what Ted Mosby goes through! His story will make you laugh, cry and make you pull your hair sometimes – it’s an emotional roller-coaster with a happy ending
