Gangs Of Wasseypur was originally a 5 hours 20 mins long movie.
Nowadays, thankfully Bollywood movies are not longer than 2 and a half hours. Having said that, there are some movies that keep us engrossed till the very last minute. Bollywood’s love for those few hour long movies has faded for good. These are the 6 Bollywood movies that made us forget about the ticking clock.
#1 Sholay– 3 hours, 24 minutes
This movie had every legendary thing we could ever wish for in a Bollywood movie. The writers and the actors make every minute count. We didn’t even look at the clock when we were watching this one!
#2 Hum Aapke Hai Koun– 3 hours, 26 minutes
The 90’s romantic movie starring Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit is the one we can watch even today. The elaborate family drama has everything to make you forget what time it is.
