While five debutants made it to our list of ten best films of 2014, our year-end round-up for 2015 has six talented debutants who have made their presence felt in the industry ahead of some established directors. Box office performance is definitely not a yardstick with which our team has put together these films. This list is purely based on the quality and originality of the content. It has been a fulfilling roller-coaster year with diversified genres of films including con-heist, horror, social thriller, rom-com and art-house fares.
