  1. Thrilled to see Johnny Gaddar & OLLO make it to the list, but no DCH in the top HUNDRED hindi movies ever made??? You’ve got to be kidding me mate, GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!

  2. Charvee

    what about Dev D, Arth, Swades, Black, taare zameen par, Devdas, Maachis, chandni bar… these are some of the finest movies

  3. satya 3 idiots taare zameen par, rangeela, dil chahta hain

  4. Guide
    Sahib Biwi Aur Gulam
    Mother India
    Jaane bhi do yaaron
    Chupke Chupke

  5. Pallavi

    chak de india,3 idiots,swades?

  6. Simran

    I would like to see Saudagar (Nutan, Amitabh) on the list; remove DDLJ,maybe?

  7. Udaan and Maqbool in place of Band Baaja Baarat and kalyug !

  8. Dilip

    UDAAN and BLACK FRIDAY can replace many in the list.

  9. Dilip

    Add DCH as well

  10. Zalak

    Pakeeza can be included. I dnt know whether I hate DDJL mroe or Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, (but considering their success, their place is justified) may be, band baaja aur barat!

  11. BK

    Overall a good compilation but I have my disagreements
    Movies that would have made my list but are not here – The Burning Train, Haasil, Sehar, Buddha Mar Gaya, Qatl, Rangeela, Don, Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander and few more
    Movies that would not be in my list but are here – BBB, HAHK, OLLO, Pyasa, Kaminey, Omkara, Do Bigha Zameen, Mr and Mrs 55, Darr and few more

    Khamosh and Parinda should be there….they show what a potentially thrilling director Vidhu Chopra is….we need more of him
