Best Bollywood Movies of the 21st Century

The best Indian movies made since the year 2000. The reason I made a time limit was to separate the "classics" and the new movies without any controversy. Let's see which one wins!

The Top TenXW

1Rang De Basanti

Absolutely 10/10 in every way. Superb acting, exceptional music, everything's just perfect. The most complete and talented cast I've ever seen. Bollywood at its best.

2Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Probably the newest movie on this list, but no less deserving. Farhan Akhtar's acting was phenomenal, and the presentation was amazing. Really inspiring.

3Gangs of Wasseypur

This is probably one of the only Bollywood movie which can compete on an international level. Reminds me of the Godfather series a lot, but it's presented in a really Indian style.

4Black

The best acting I've ever seen. Amitabh Bachchan was simply awe-inspiring. A complete lack of songs added to the depth of the movie.

5Barfi!

Surprisingly deep. Priyanka Chopra's best performance, no doubt.

6Taare Zameen Par

One of the most emotional and touching movies I've ever seen, 9/10.

73 Idiots

Rather overrated in my opinion, but still a great movie. The story is a little far-fetched, and Aamir Khan's acting wasn't that praiseworthy (compared to his other works).

8A Wednesday!

A very, very powerful movie, and it makes it a real impact. The final monologue by Naseeruddin Shah was just awesome.

9Devdas

Clich├ęd and dramatic, but that's the best part. Awesome acting by all three leads. Great songs and dialogue, too.

10The Lunchbox

Simplicity at its best. It's a really deep movie, and open to interpretation. Not for everyone, requires a really intelligent audience. Irrfan Khan is one of the most talented actors in the industry for sure.

The Contenders

11Bhool Bhulaiyaa

Nicest Akshay Kumar work. Praiseworthy, comedy, drama & thriller.

12Chennai Express
13Bajrangi Bhaijaan

It is a beautiful movie about a young mute Pakistani girl lost in India, and her journey back home with an Indian Hindu man (Salman Khan.) This movie has an underlying message that is important for us all - do not judge or discriminate against someone by the country they are from, or their religion.
