5 Bollywood movies that you must watch before you die
One of the finest and epic historical period dramas of Indian cinema, Mughal-e-Azam was the most expensive film of its time and everything about its visualization spoke volumes; be it the grandeur of the sets, the phenomenal acting by Prithviraj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, and Madhubala, or the breathtaking storyline. The film, which was initially released in black and white frame got transformed into colored frames, making visual experience for the audience all the more dynamic.
G.P. Sippy’s multi-starrer Sholay still continues to be the favorite of masses. From the jaw dropping scenes to the impeccable friendship of Jai-Veeru, played by Amitabh and Dharmendra, from Hema Malini’s Basanti, to Jaya Bachchan’s coy Radha, Sanjeev Kapoor’s headstrong Thakur, to Amjad Khan’s phenomenal Gabbar Singh—the aesthetics of the movie is still fondly recalled through its dialogues, backdrops, as well as flawless script.
- Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
The SRK-Kajol starrer flick, fondly referred to as DDLJ has won millions and millions of hearts worldwide ever since its release in the year 1995. A beautifully woven love story between two non-resident Indians, DDLJ still continues to inspire many love birds 21 years since its release.
- Andaz Apna Apna
The epic comedy movie of all time in Bollywood, starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon, Karishma Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, and others in prominent roles, is your perfect answer to any sad times, as this movie guarantees to make you laugh your ankles off.
Ashutosh Gowariker’s Lagaan is a prime example of brilliance in Indian cinema. Set in the backdrop of an era when Indians were suppressed under the British rule, Lagaan brings excellence, patriotism, romance, as well as nail-biting sequences all in one plate. Perfectionist Aamir Khan’s Bhuvan as the lead of the film does complete justice to the already perfect script and screenplay of the movie.
