The better “second half” that changed your view?

In no particular order! I am writing the one which are striking my mind immediately.

Tezz- This box office disaster didn’t really was a disaster in terms of content. In-fact unlike many, I pretty much enjoyed this dumb yet engaging flick, thanks to savior second half. The things got pretty much fastened in this hour and ended up very fast. The plus point was that it was a short film.

De Dana Dan- After being disappointed with the first half of the film, its second half managed to evoke aplenty laughs! The jokes were situational and the two dozen character were well brought in the story. An overlong breezy time-pass!

Yamla Pagla Deewana- To be frank, this film was strictly average in its first half. I had made up mind during the interval that I am not going to rate it more than 2 or 2.5. But surprisingly YPD revealed the best cards it has. The gags were nothing less than hilarious and the climax added the cherry on cake.

Yeh Saali Zindagi- This little smart, delicious thriller had one hell of a second half of it. The second half was better because the complexity the film created in first half was very smartly cleared post-intermission that made up for a convincing finale.

Desi Boyz- First half was good, but second half was excellent in this case. Not only humorous, but also a very good dramatic film which dealt with two men who are at urgency of making some bucks! Even though the climax wasn’t really good, but rest everything was too much fun. And that Omi Vaidya character, who created astonishing impression with brief role.

Apna Sapna Money Money- After introducing the never-ending characters in first half, the director made jokes out of these characters post-intermission. The “Sania” version of Ritesh deshmukh was a prime reason why the second half ended up being so funny.

Chaalis Chaurasi- Those 4 small documentary shown in first half of this film to introduce all 4 characters was seriously ailing me. But thankfully, its second half was extremely good with nice blend of thrill and comedy. The climax was very good as well. A decent film!

Apne- This over the top, yet watchable family drama had some really high voltage drama in the second half. I was particularly impressed by the straight-forward end. Liked the film!

I will add more names as and when I come across them.
