The 100 best Bollywood movies

The 100 best Bollywood movies

India’s film industry is huge, both in size and scope. How huge? Well, in 2019 alone there were 4500 films released in 41 different languages. Choosing the best Bollywood films (and forgive us for using ‘Bollywood’ as a slightly misleading catch-all term for Indian cinema) from those 41 languages feels like an impossible task. To help, we enlisted the expertise of critics and experts to cover everything from Tamil thrillers to Telugu-language action spectaculars like RRR. Also on the list are so-called ‘curry western’ like Sholay, bombastic blockbusters like Baahubali, older classics like Mother Indian and smaller fare in which nothing at all blows up and no one is attacked by tigers. Whether you’re in the mood for a fantastical musical, up for dancing to the tunes of songwriting legends like AR Rahman or Laxmikant and Pyarelal, or feasting on the dramatic chops of superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Ram Charan, there’s something here for you.

With films dating from 1951 to 2014, this list will give you a glimpse into just how much Bollywood has changed over the last 60 years, while providing you with some absolute bangers you'll want to add to your playlists, too.  RECOMMENDED: The 100 best romantic films
