Top 10 Best Indian (Bollywood) Movies of All Time

Indian cinema is one of the oldest and most diverse film industries in the world. It has produced many masterpieces that have influenced and inspired generations of filmmakers and audiences.

Below are the masterpieces of Indian cinema - the movies that made Indian cinema great.
The Top Ten
1 Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

DDLJ, what should I say? It's the best romantic movie I have ever seen! And can you believe it is still running in theaters? It was the movie that broke the mold of Hindi cinema. It was the start of Hindi movies looking cool! The best movie, don't miss it if you haven't seen it yet!

I'm from Chennai. I don't know Hindi. The one and only Hindi movie I have watched is Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, using English subtitles. I really enjoyed this lovable movie. It's the best evergreen movie I have watched in my life. Kajol was awesome.

2 3 Idiots

This movie has it all: from love to friendship, from loss to success. It is funny, romantic, and truthful. It portrays the reality of the Indian education system perfectly. It teaches us many things. Not a single Indian movie is even half as good as this one.

It's the best and the most realistic Bollywood movie of all time and deserves to be in the first position.

I think this movie should be in the top 10 movies of all time. A movie that has everything in it: music, fun, comedy, emotions, and most importantly, it teaches us something really cool in a great way. It's one of the best movies of all time.

3 Sholay

Here is the most popular Hindi movie. Sholay is a milestone and has the most popular bandit villain 'Gabbar Singh'. The dialogues of the film are still as popular as in 1975. It features the angry young man Amitabh Bachchan and 'He-Man' Dharmendra in the lead duo as bad boys. The fact that made this film great and an all-time favorite is its command over the screenplay. Originally, it is a remake of the Japanese movie 'Seven Samurai'.

From a small character like Sachin to roles of Amitabh, Dharmendra, Sanjeev Kumar, you cannot pick a character that is unnecessary in this film. I like this aspect of the film. Other than that, the dialogues, shooting, and above all, the acting of all the actors are remarkable.

4 My Name Is Khan

It is the most beautiful film and shows the respect Muslims deserve. It totally changed my perspective of mankind. I'm so happy and proud that this film isn't based on anything! I just love the whole concept, an anytime classic! The other movies are also amazing, but I can get tired of them. KJO is the best director after Yash Raj Chopra. Even the cast is great, and of course, the 'golden pair'.

This movie is the best! I cried watching it, and if not the first, it should be the second-best Bollywood film. The pairing is amazing! Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are my favorites.

5 Kaho Na Pyaar Hai

An all-rounder Indian movie I have ever watched! It keeps you engaged from start to end. Awesome acting by Hrithik, Ameesha, and all the crew. Best music. Fantastic locations. Everything is perfect!

Kaho Na Pyaar Hai is an all-time blockbuster movie. Hrithik Roshan showed his best talent in all fields. His acting was graceful, and his dance was remarkable.

What the hell is going on? It should be the best movie rank. It was a blockbuster. Hrithik played a really nice part in the movie. He was awesome.

6 Mother India

The strongest role played by Nargis. She made her role larger than life.

It has one of the greatest stories of a woman's encounter with old Indian village life.

The greatest story of mother and sons' relationship in an Indian poor village life.

This movie should be at the top. So sad.

7 Lagaan

This movie is set in the old English-possessed India.

The story is of villagers who fight with the English against a tax called "lagaan" with "cricket," a game that is unknown to them, but they play and win.

This is the first Indian movie that made its way to the Oscars' final list.

Really an awesome, wonderful movie. The actors acted so well that you feel like you are really in the movie.

This movie is the ever Bollywood best movie. There is no other film comparable to this. I love to watch this film again and again.

8 Ek Tha Tiger

None other than Salman...
Sultan of Bollywood...
The most dangerous Tiger...

It's a movie of Salman Khan. I like it so much.

Salman Khan is the best hero in Bollywood. A grand salute to Salman Bhai.

9 Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

I wonder why it has been rated so low. SRK did good work in this movie. The movie earned well at the box office. People still like to watch this movie. Yet, being in 22nd place is an insult to the movie. I think the list should be upgraded, and the movie should be given a better ranking.

Best movie ever!

I love Shah Rukh and Kajol when they romance on screen!

I loved this movie so much that I have watched it about 160 times.

10 Koi Mil Gaya

This is the best movie for kids.

This is the first movie that I had seen and all-time my favorite.

The Contenders
11 Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham

Amazing. One of the best films of all time, in my opinion. The cast was phenomenal. The great Shah Rukh Khan, along with Hrithik Roshan and Amitabh Bachchan, made this movie great. The only slight disappointment would have to be Kareena Kapoor. Her role was so cliché and annoying, serving no relevance to the plot whatsoever. Nevertheless, this movie is brilliant.

It is the best movie in Bollywood ever.

12 Jab We Met

The couple looks fantastic. Also, the story is very sweet and has no dark side. It tells us to find the positive in life but not just to live on it, but to work hard for it. Additionally, it is family-friendly and can be watched by all age groups.

Not only a love story but also a story with messages, such as how to take things in life and how to come out of miserable situations. It shows how Aditya comes out of his miserable, suicidal situation.

One of the best Bollywood has ever produced, and the best love story ever.

Nice duo, good chemistry between both, excellent work by the versatile actor Shahid. Also, Kareena made a good impression.

13 Rowdy Rathore

I like this movie very, very much!

One of Bollywood's many talented actors.

It should be at the top of the list. I like this movie a lot because it is a perfect movie.

14 Rang De Basanti

The greatest, the best, and the most amazing movie ever made in the whole wide world.

This movie deserves to be #1. I can watch this movie continuously the whole day long.

Aamir Khan is one heck of an actor. A.R. Rahman rocks!

The greatest Bollywood film ever. Period. Excellent performances by all actors, especially Aamir Khan and the debutant Siddharth. Wonderful direction by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, coupled with A. R. Rahman's beautiful music, makes this a classic cult film for the youth.

This movie changed my perception.

"No country is perfect. It needs to be made perfect."

"I always believed there were two kinds of people in this world: those who cried before death and those who accepted death silently. But then I met the third kind - The Indians, who died with a smile for their country."

15 Mere Brother Ki Dulhan

This was a hilarious movie about marriage and living life to the fullest. I loved the acting of Ali Zafar and Katrina Kaif. Hell, I even enjoyed Imran Khan's character - and that's saying something.

16 Namastey London

One of the best Bollywood has ever produced, and the best love story ever. Akshay Kumar fits the role perfectly, and so does Katrina due to her accent. Akshay Kumar has done extraordinary acting, and his character shows what actual love means.

One of the best. The story, as well as the songs, everything about this movie, is awesome.

Awesome movie. It should be in the top 5.

17 Dabangg

Best entertainment from one of the best films of Dabangg. Dabangg is a great film, the best fighting film, and has the best dialogue of the year.

I guess this is one of Salman Khan's best films.

Because it has lots of fighting, it is epic!

18 Mughal-E-Azam

Nothing to say if you've seen this movie. It took 9 years to make this classic masterpiece and 1 billion of that time (100 billion today).

This movie has the most beautiful scenes, strong and awesomely perfect dialogues, and above all, great actors like Prithviraj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar (Tragedy King), and the beautiful Madhubala, who made their roles larger than life. The most powerful parts of the film are its dialogues, direction, cinematography, and the song "Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya". Definitely a great movie.

19 Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar
20 Zindagi Na Milege Dobara

Amazing movie! With loads of beautiful scenes in the background! Spain is a beautiful country, and this movie has proven it!

Amazing, fabulous, fantastic movie. Superb acting by Farhan. I love him in this movie. Watch it. Have fun.

This movie should be in the top 5... it's class. The best movie I have ever watched in my life. All the actors did a great job.

21 Udaan

Trust me, this list contains some of the dumbest Bollywood movies ever, except for this one (UDAAN). If you really want to taste a good Bollywood movie, check this out:

- Pyaasa
- Anand
- Guide
- Mera Naam Joker
- Do Bigha Zamin
- Mother India
- Shri 420
- Kagaz Ke Phool
- Footpath (1953)
- Iqbal
- Shool.

These movies will give you a real taste of Bollywood. I'm not saying these 11 movies are the best Bollywood movies ever created, but they are definitely among the best. Please ignore most of the movies on this list because if you love artistic cinema, you'll get headaches. Most movies on this list are senseless.

22 Sairat
23 Taare Zameen Par

Because a thought-provoking movie with a cast that doesn't overact or try to copy someone else doesn't get in the top 10. Because a movie that reveals true issues going on in India must be beaten by glamorous hero-style films with little substance, poor effects, and meaningless dance numbers.

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Don 2 are above this?
Seriously, people...
This movie deserves to be in the top 10.
And Sholay is not original, so no points for that.

How is this movie at 17th, and why are stupid movies like Ek Tha Tiger and Lootera in better positions? This is why bin Laden targeted us.

24 Dangal

Best movie ever in the world. A film could not be made better than this. A very successful movie. Deserves to be number 1.

It should be in the top 5... One of the best movies.

Simply one of the best I've ever seen. Watched it like 5 times this week.

25 Don: The Chase Begins Again

It is a remake of the 1978 blockbuster Don. Nicely done by SRK, and let's not forget Farhan - very talented and an amazing director.
