Silver Linings Playbook(2012)

Silver Linings Playbook movie -- Another David O. Russell comedy which derives all it's elements from the real life scenarios, nothing too glitzy, nothing very flashy but still maintains a brisk pace and an overall feel good mood. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper gave career best performances in the title roles of two mentally unstable people searching for their silver linings, and Anupam Kher shined in the little yet important space provided to him. The quirky camera angles and sharp movements gave the film a rough yet substantial edge. It definitely deserves all the accolades it's getting primarily for not being a cheesy rom-com which it so easily could have been. The movie walked the thin line between being funny and being offensive as it dealt with a sensitive topic of mental illness and depression. But kudos to the creative team and the cast that they passed with flying colours as the film provided us with light funny moments as well as a chance to empathize with the characters.
