10 Must Watch Indian Movies of All Time

Sep. 18. 2021


Director: Ramesh Sippy

Sholay implies cinder in Hindi. The movie takes off when a Police Officer’s whole family is killed by a scoundrel named Gabbar Singh, he then chooses to retaliate in the same way and enlists two convicts, Jai and Veeru to catch Gabbar. He approaches them in prison, places the proposition before them, and they consent to get Gabbar Singh alive – at a heavy cost. After their release from prison, they make a trip via train to the town where the Police Officer resides – presently with just his bereaved little girl-in-law. The three rallies to battle one of the most subtle and feared crooks ever. Can the two ex-cons bring Gabbar alive to the Police Officer?

‘Sholay’ is an all-out masala movie that mixes slapstick comedy along with glorious action sequences and beautiful romance melodiously that you’ll find yourself laughing out loud and biting your nails within a couple of minutes of each other.

Mother India

Director: Mehboob Khan

A couple of movies characterize the course of the film and impact the ages of producers, entertainers, and the crowd. Relatively few movies get this distinction, yet Mehboob Khan’s 1957 film Mother India is maybe one film that undeniably gets it done. 

Mother India is the tale of Radha (Nargis) who is a recently married lady in the town. She begins working with her better half in the fields since the family is weighed by neighborhood moneylender’s grasps. The credit doesn’t appear to end and Radha goes from an enthusiastic young lady to a drained old woman in her bid to reimburse it. Despite the fact that people around her – her significant other (Raaj Kumar), relative, two of her kids walk out on her, Radha actually needs to continue and stress over the following supper for her two excess children – Birju (Sunil Dutt) and Ramu (Rajendra Kumar). 

Mother India’s narration and themes have birthed endless stories in the Indian film industry. However as the film has matured, not every one of the subjects that it gladly addressed some time ago holds well today. In any case, Mother India stays as one of the most praised movies ever, and only for that shrub, has the right to be seen by ages to come.  

Ship of Theseus

Director: Anand Gandhi

Anand Gandhi’s “Ship of Theseus” courses through one’s consciousness like a wandering waterway and makes a few bull bow lakes on the spirit simultaneously. It doesn’t run its hyperlinked account in equal, yet isolates every story inside itself to give separate encounters. It portrays a bunch of fascinating characters with intriguing thoughts and proceeds to change itself into an enhancing experience during which you continually end up stopping to let things hit home. Boat of Theseus conveys a fortune with each piece deserving of investigation.

Individuals have their inclinations, yet Ship of Theseus is generally a nomination from the part of cinephiles with regards to naming the best Hindi film of the most recent ten years. It can ostensibly be the best Hindi film of the century and truly a classic.

Gangs of Wasseypur

Director: Anurag Kashyap

Gangs of Wasseypur can be defined as the magnum opus of Kashyap’s art. You can perceive a film for its substance, you can applaud a film for its specialized artfulness, you can love a film for its tunes, or you can invest heavily in a film for the solid exhibitions it extracts from its actors. Then there is Gangs of Wasseypur that exists as a practically perfect film. It functions as a school for filmmaking for the people who try to learn and fills in as a definitive wellspring of diversion for the individuals who need to be gone along with it. You can portray this film with descriptive words just to find its brightness insufficiently depicted. 

The plot revolves around the town of Wasseypur, a town in Bengal during the 1940s, constrained by a family known as the Qureshi’s. A man named Shahid Khan starts ransacking trains utilizing the name of the Qureshi’s popular ancestor, Sultana, after being driven away from the town by the Qureshi headman he goes to the close by city of Dhanbad and after a progression of occasions turns into an authority for an amazing Coal proprietor named Ramadhir Singh, who after finding a plot by Shahid to kill him has him assassinated.

His child, Sardar, and his brother-in-law, Nasir figure out how to get away and Sardar finds out about his dad’s fate swears vengeance as he gets back to Wasseypur to render retribution. He reignites a fight with the heartless Sultan Qureshi prompting an age-crossing fight between the Gangs of Wasseypur.


Director: Neeraj Ghaywan

At the point when the funeral fire burns our body into ashes, the personality, race, color, and even the deeds of an individual become irrelevant. When the extremely complex compound that is human is burnt up, all that is left is a simple compound that is pure. Masaan is an unadulterated true-to-life ground on which, in opposition to the significance of this word, craftsmanship inhales into life. Neeraj takes out the most basic intricacies of people and weaves a story of life and demise around it in an impeccable way, one that streams without an obstacle and one that doesn’t surrender to the weight of the intricacies it was conveying. 

People will have various options for films that are profoundly subjective of workmanship yet Masaan is one film that is valued, deservedly thus, consistently. It will go through your spirit like a roaring train and you will shudder like a railroad.

The Lunchbox

Director: Ritesh Batra

Ritesh Batra discovers love in the most neglected elements of life. We live, we love, we experience, but, we neglect to understand that the beginning of our adoration, the wellspring of its force, and the channels through which it streams aren’t continually knocking heads, twisted influences, and projecting veins, individually.

Our industry has exploited the cliché love story stereotypes so much that we started fancying them, thus numerous movies get made trying to mimic these far from reality love tales that never come together well. However, love doesn’t come up short there. It occurs. To every one of us, somehow or another. Ritesh Batra acknowledges it. What’s more, henceforth, he makes his tale of love from one of the incalculable potential outcomes that are uncommon however never implausible. He won’t ever rush. He has a patient methodology. Since falling head over heels is a sluggish, delicate experience.


Barfi is a story of the satisfaction of love alongside its lonely divides. It praises love through the immaculateness of its characters who act benevolently for one another, without strategic aims. At last, Barfi turns into a sympathetic story of a wonderful relationship and the extraction of the most extreme bliss from fulfillment. 

On the specialized front, Barfi is brimming with merits. Anurag Basu has his image of feeling. His scenes are brimming with brilliant shades of tones, looking like those of Wes Anderson’s movies. The creation configuration adds as much to the glow one encounters as the content does. 

I have my reservations against the film for it tracks on the slight line among motivation and plagiarism in many successions, staggering to the opposite side. However, native components make up for all unsettling influences you have and thus, Barfi gladly comes to our rundown of the best Hindi movies of the decade that went.


Director: Vishal Bhardwaj

Haider is a political sonnet, an abstract slap, an author’s wrath, and a raised finger at lack of concern. It is a work of fine art, dominating every division of filmmaking. Apparently the best film of Vishal Bhardwaj’s filmography, Haider additionally extracts Shahid Kapoor’s career-best execution, pitching him against the likes of Tabu and Kay Menon. An actual film is a person on its own however much it is about the character.

This film will exist to help all craftsmen to remember a craftsman’s obligation while remaining focused on their art and it will involve massive pride if any Hindi film in the future outperforms Haider with regards to literary adaptations.

Mukti bhavan

Director: Shubhashish Bhutiani

Mukti Bhawan or “Hotel Salvation ” is past what is played on the screen on the off chance that one can put himself in the film totally. It will not keep you as eager and anxious as ever, nor will it get you invigorated or entranced, it will not set you on a chuckling mode either however its utilization requests your concentration and your total speculation to delve into the underlying ways of thinking and intricacies. 

Mortality is a reality difficult to embrace and difficult to anticipate. Mukti Bhawan recounts the narrative of a child whose father is hesitant to leave his breath and achieve salvation in the sacred city of Varanasi and the strife which our characters go through in the film makes us keep thinking about whether picking what can’t be picked is conceivable. 

This film isn’t only perhaps the best film of the decade yet, in addition, a criminally misjudged and under-seen Hindi film of our age.


Director: Ashutosh Gowariker

Set in the backdrop of the nineteenth century, ‘Lagaan’ sees a dry spell struck town join together to figure out how to play cricket and take on their brutal magnificent rulers. Albeit the mix of cricket and British rule appears to be an easy decision by and large, at first no one would contact this idea even with a ten-foot bat. Then, at that point, star Aamir Khan played the lead job and its success and film industry achievement introduced another period of the elective topic and fluctuated narrating. ‘Lagaan’ is, up to this point, the last mainstream Hindi film to be nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.
