Guide (1965)
In my view this is the best Hindi film of all time. Particularly the 2nd half is really brilliant. The songs are too good to resist none the less. My all time favourite

This is the film that had proven ShahRukh Khan's merit as an actor. I really loved the emotional moments of the film, truly a gem of a film.

A black comedy made on a shoe string budget. The comic scenes are too hilarious particularly the Mahabharat Scene is the highlight of the film.

A modern day classic. The multi layered story and some superlative performances are the pillar of this patriotic film and A.R.Rahman created some great music in this film.

ShahRukh proves himself once again in this inspirational tale of Indian women hockey team conquering the world. Underdog sports films aren't that rare in hollywood but for Bollywood this one came as a welcome change. A well choreographed and well performed cinema.

Again a modern day classic which just changed the way buddy films are to be made in Bollywood. A superbly directed film that has just about everything to entertain even the most intellectual viewers.

It came as a breath of fresh air. A superb performance by Kareena and a very good story made it a very good cinematic experience. A very beautiful and moving film packed with immaculate sense of humour.

The Great Indian Classic from Bimal Roy. The sensitive melodrama is centred around a family who have lost everything and then migrates to the city. An epic Indian tale of real life struggle. Awesome in one word.

Some films become immortal despite having all the usual clichés and defects. We love them for the X factor I guess. This is one film that has been a heartthrob for our entire generation. Never did I find it flawless but still I loved it.

Pyaasa (1957)
A soulful romantic art from the master director Guru Dutt. The poetic story and some brilliant acting makes it a memorable film in the history of Indian Cinema. One of my all-time favourites.

A modern classic all the way. It is a beautifully written story of a Mumbai Tapori who teaches us Ghandhigiri in his own way. A moving comedy set around our daily life. A must watch for everyone.

3 Idiots (2009)
This is a kind of film that grows on you slowly. Honestly I did not like it the first time I had watched it but after watching it thrice I must say that I was wrong. Okay there are certain scenes I still do not like but all in all a very good film never the less.

A brilliant black comedy and what a debut for Dibakar Banerjee as a director. Mind blowing script and terrific acting mostly from the non star(!)cast made it a very enjoyable ride for me.

Sholay (1975)
Some says that this is the best hindi film ever. I don't think so but I must say that the presentation alone makes it a must watch. The fact that this is almost a rip off of The Seven Samurai does irritate me but still there are enough in it make it as one of the best films made in Hindi.

Dil Se.. (1998)
One of the most underrated Hindi films. The first Hindi film directed by Mani Ratnam had a certain rawness attached to it. Despite having some minor glitches in the narrative, its a very good film never the less.
