It is always said that Bollywood was not the same as it was before! Brilliant actors, simpler budgets and most of all scripts which were so relatable! It is something which is surely missing at the time when directors are high on remixes, sequels and remakes! Here are 10 such wonders which prove you don't always need a big budget or stars to make a brilliant movie!
Socha Na Tha
It is often said that Imtiaz Ali’s Socha Na Tha did not get the appreciation it actually deserves and we totally agree! Mix in elements of chaos amidst love, arranged marriage, family friends and you have Socha Na Tha! Without romanticizing love too much, it presented two people in an arranged marriage setup in just the right way!
That Girl in Yellow Boots
Kalki Koechlin was the true winner in this Anurag Kashyap thriller,playing a woman who tries to find her birth father. Watch it if you haven’t watched already!
Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron
Although we need not describe much about the cult movie, the movie still *is* a landmark in Bollywood and contemporary movie world! We haven’t watched a movie as brilliant as this and might not even watch! We just hope it isn’t remade!
How to present a desi Indian wedding done right by Mira Nair! Not only is the movie considered a classic but also touched upon the topic of child sexual abuse. The movie presents celebrations and sadness at the same time!
Some of the finest actors from the theatre world were a part of this movie which is a terrific play between the business of prostitution and politics. The movie is a true cinematic genius!
Never before had a topic like this been touched in Bollywood’s cinema graph! The movie revolves around Viren,played by Anil Kapoor who falls in love with Sridevi who marries somebody else only to leave behind a daughter, who grows up to fall in love with Viren. The story reeks up points of incest. Directed by Yash Chopra, we think the movie might have irked a lot of people!
Do Aankhen Baarah Haath
This movie redefined the genre of classics in Indian Cinema! Directed by V.Shantaram, the movie told the story about a young jail warden who reforms six prisoners in a different way and different setting! Truly remarkable and if we might add , better than Hollywood!
Ek Doctor Ki Maut
Moving back in the timeline a little bit, we have Ek Doctor ki Maut, which was a brilliant movie about a doctor who is reproached by the village clan for a cure he discovers. While some believe the movie was inspired by the real life story of a doctor, the movie is sure to stay with you for a long long while after watching!
While actors today might feel shy from accepting homosexual roles, Fire was one movie which ignited and brought focus to the topic of homosexuality. Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das were absolutely brilliant in the movie which unfortunately was banned!
This is one movie we believe has never seen a match till now! One of a kind neo-psychological thriller saw John Abraham give one of his best performances till date. Everytime you see the film, you come up with a new interpretation!
