Years pass but cinema stays on forever in our memories. No matter how big a hit or a flop, there's always something special about a movie that makes it memorable. It is the year 2018 but it feels like yesterday when the song "Dekho 2000 zamaana aa gaya" from the movie Mela was released. The lyrics are so fresh in our minds, it bothers us to even think that the movie will be turning 18 years old now. In fact, if the song were a person, he/she would be eligible to vote in the coming elections. And not only Mela, many other movies close to our hearts will be turning into adults this year. Let's have a look at 20 film turning 18 in 2018:
This was the first release of the year 2000 as well as the first flop of the same year.
One of the longest-running movies till date, this Adi Chopra romance remains in our hearts even today.
This movie introduced the sexiest man of the decade. Hrithik Roshan has come a long way since his debut.
Remember the song Bhumroo Bhumroo? Yes, it was this movie.
2000 was a year of new faces in Bollywood and this marks the debut of Junior Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor.
6. Hera Pheri
A cult classic, this comedy film introduced us to a style that was actually a statement.
A true love triangle, this movie has evergreen songs that are still played by the 90s kids while they are crushing on someone.
Remeber when SRK played the brother of Aishwarya and she was paired with Chandrachur Singh? This is that movie.
9. Khiladi 420
Another Khiladi movie, this one had Akshay Kumar in a double role – both as the antagonist and protagonist.
10. Kya Kehna
A Kundan Shah venture, this movie was one of the very few female-oriented movies of that time starring Preity Zinta.
2000s were the time when Ram Gopal Verma's thrillers were to die for, including this one.
This was also the time when Bobby Deol was the chocolate-boy-cum-action-hero. Here, he played a heartless terrorist, who is later adopted by a police officer.
13. Chal Mere Bhai
Starring Sanju Baba and Sallu Bhai, this was the bromantic comedy of the previous generation.
14. Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge
Not to be confused with DDLJ, this movie starred Salman Khan and Karishma Kapoor, alongside Paresh Rawal, Anupam Kher, and Om Puri.
15. Hey Ram
This epic film won three National Awards in 2000 and numerous other accolades after a million controversies and was later banned. LOL.
16. Raju Chacha
This maiden production of Ajay Devgn was the most expensive Bollywood movie till 2000 – the production cost being 36 crores only.
17. Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai
It was the time when Govinda ruled the romantic comedies of Bollywood with his comic timing and dancing skills.
Before Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt was the ideal policewala of any Bollywood movie.
Remeber Rajinikanth's sick flip of his angavastra and the legendary lighting of the match-sticks. Obviously, you do! However, the lead actor in this one was Anil Kapoor.
Like 2018, 2000 also had a Baaghi and it starred Sanjay Dutt.
Other famous flicks like Joru Ka Gulam, Astitva, etc. were released in the same year. Doesn't it bother you that this was all 18 years ago – the time we dreamed of being adults? Well, now we feel super old! Let us know your favorite film of 2000 in comments below.
