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

  2. Guide
    Sahib Biwi Aur Gulam
    Mother India
    Jaane bhi do yaaron
    Chupke Chupke
    Mughal e azam
    Teesri Kasam
    Qayamat se qayamat tak
    3 Idiots
    Hum dono
    Do beegha Zameen
    Salaam Bombay
    Monsoon Wedding
    Taare Zameen pe
    Jab we met
    Mausam (Old)
    Humraaz (Old)
    Adalat (Old)
    Munna Bhai MBBS
    Lage raho Munna Bhai

    This is what I recall as of now… I will keep adding as and when I recall !

  3. 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!

  4. 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

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

  6. keep revisiting this list from time to time as i update my own watchlist of great hindi movies…

    just watched hazaaro khwahishein aisi last night and was blown away….magnificent….dont know how I missed it…
