Rang De Basanti
This movie proved to be a major eye-opener for the audience, regarding a lot of issues in our government. The highlight of the movie is how they draw a parallel between contemporary India and India during the freedom struggle. It was much appreciated by critics and audiences alike. Also, the music by A.R. Rahman was soulful and gave you goosebumps every time.
A simple love story between a girl and a boy – Sooraj Barjatya style. It’s about the love that develops between a couple from the time they are engaged to the time they get married.
This Yash Raj film was a little different from the other movies that they produced. Kajol and Aamir Khan were appreciated for their roles in the movie. Kajol even won the Filmfare Award for the Best Actress.
Based on Shakespeare’s Othello, this movie was loved by the critics, and the actors’ performances got a lot of applause. The film became part of a series by Vishal Bhardwaj- interpreting classic literary works.
This movie, which was inspired by the 2001 Malayalam film Kakkakuyil, was Rohit Shetty’s second venture in Bollywood and proved to be a raving success. It had the right combination of humor and emotions in it. It also served as a base for two more in the series, both of them equally hilarious.
The 2006 movie was a remake of the 1978 movie of the same name. And the plot was almost the same. Almost!

The sequel to the superhit Dhoom. This movie is still considered the best of the entire series. It had everything from romance to action to cool gadgets.
This sequel to the 2003 sci-fi film Koi… Mil Gaya was just in time for the growing interest in superheroes in India. Though not the first Indian superhero, he became the most popular one.
