PG-13 | 170 min | Comedy, Drama

67 Metascore

Two friends are searching for their long lost companion. They revisit their college days and recall the memories of their friend who inspired them to think differently, even as the rest of the world called them "idiots".

Director: Rajkumar Hirani | Stars: Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Mona Singh, Sharman Joshi

Votes: 350,402 | Gross: $6.53M

A fabulous achievement across the board. A typical Bollywood confection but also social commentary on a dysfunctional engineering school system that pressures huge numbers of students into suicide.

My Rating:-10/10 My Verdict:-Highly Recommended

2. Dil Chahta Hai (2001)

Not Rated | 183 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

Three inseparable childhood friends are just out of college. Nothing comes between them - until they each fall in love, and their wildly different approaches to relationships creates tension.

Director: Farhan Akhtar | Stars: Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Preity Zinta

Votes: 67,367 | Gross: $0.30M

Dil Chahta Hai is a rare film on male camaraderie, on bachelor bonding. It is a fun film catering strictly to urban youth from middle and upper middle class which will find a reflection of their longing and lifestyle in it.

My Rating:-10/10 My Verdict:-Highly Recommended

3. Like Stars on Earth (2007)

PG | 165 min | Drama, Family

An eight-year-old boy is thought to be a lazy trouble-maker, until the new art teacher has the patience and compassion to discover the real problem behind his struggles in school.

Directors: Aamir Khan, Amole Gupte | Stars: Darsheel Safary, Aamir Khan, Tisca Chopra, Vipin Sharma

Votes: 172,517 | Gross: $1.22M

Taare Zameen Par is one film that makes you peep into a child's mind and how some parents, in their pursuit to make them 'stronger' academically, forget that there's hitherto untapped talent that needs to be nourished and encouraged.

My Rating:-10/10 My Verdict:-Highly Recommended

4. Ra.One (2011)

Not Rated | 156 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

60 Metascore

When the titular antagonist of an action game takes on physical form, it's only the game's less powerful protagonist who can save his creator's family.

Director: Anubhav Sinha | Stars: Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Shahana Goswami

Votes: 38,503 | Gross: $2.51M

Despite a wafer-thin plot, director Sinha engages his audience with an abundance of graphics and VFX special effects.

My Rating:-8/10 My Verdict:-Worth a Look

5. Swades (2004)

Not Rated | 189 min | Drama

A successful Indian scientist returns to an Indian village to take his nanny to America with him and in the process rediscovers his roots.

Director: Ashutosh Gowariker | Stars: Shah Rukh Khan, Gayatri Joshi, Kishori Ballal, Smit Sheth

Votes: 83,822 | Gross: $1.22M

Swades is a unique experiment with grassroot realism, conceived and designed as the Great Indian Journey into the heart and soul of poverty.

My Rating:-10/10 My Verdict:-Highly Recommended

6. Don 2 (2011)

Not Rated | 148 min | Action, Crime, Thriller

49 Metascore

Director: Farhan Akhtar | Stars: Shah Rukh Khan, Florian Lukas, Om Puri, Priyanka Chopra

Votes: 49,770 | Gross: $3.68M

A slickly made, aggressively commercial franchise blockbuster that indicates Bollywood is now thinking globally, not just locally.

My Rating:-8/10 My Verdict:-Worth a Look

7. Players (2012)

Not Rated | 163 min | Action, Crime, Thriller

Learning of a fortune in gold being secretly shipped to Romania, master thieves Charlie and Riya assemble a crack team to steal it.

Directors: Abbas Alibhai Burmawalla, Mastan Alibhai Burmawalla | Stars: Vinod Khanna, Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Sonam Kapoor

Votes: 4,106

The real problem with this official remake of The Italian Job is that instead of reproducing a perfectly nuanced screenplay as it is, it tries to act too smart, with excessive elements and needless tampering, in the process making a complete fool of itself.

My Rating:-5/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

8. Agneepath (2012)

Not Rated | 174 min | Action, Crime, Drama

A young boy's father is lynched before his eyes; fifteen years later he returns home for revenge.

Director: Karan Malhotra | Stars: Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor

Votes: 22,572 | Gross: $1.98M

With Bollywood being obsessed with remakes in recent times, Agneepath is an important lesson on how to pay proper tribute to the original and has the fire for a lustrous entertainer!

My Rating:-9/10 My Verdict:-Recommended

9. Paan Singh Tomar (2012)

Not Rated | 135 min | Action, Biography, Crime

The story of Paan Singh Tomar, an Indian athlete and seven-time national steeplechase champion who becomes one of the most feared dacoits in Chambal Valley after his retirement.

Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia | Stars: Irrfan Khan, Mahie Gill, Rajesh Abhay, Hemendra Dandotiya

Votes: 33,571 | Gross: $0.04M

Paan Singh Tomar is a terrific edge-of-the-seat entertainer. The synthesis of two genres-the sports film and the dacoit drama-is done with such confident ingenuity that we hardly realize when one ends, the other begins.

My Rating:-9/10 My Verdict:-Recommended

10. Kahaani (2012)

Not Rated | 122 min | Mystery, Thriller

A pregnant woman's search for her missing husband takes her from London to Kolkata, but everyone she questions denies having ever met him.

Director: Sujoy Ghosh | Stars: Vidya Balan, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Indraneil Sengupta, Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Votes: 58,321 | Gross: $1.04M

Kahaani is a nifty thriller with an enjoyment quotient that is indirectly proportionate to how long you spend thinking about the plot.

My Rating:-9/10 My Verdict:-Recommended

11. Housefull (2010)

Not Rated | 144 min | Comedy

Believing himself to be jinxed, a man attempts to find true love, but instead gets caught in a web of lies.

Director: Sajid Khan | Stars: Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Riteish Deshmukh, Lara Dutta

Votes: 12,934 | Gross: $1.17M

The film is just as distasteful as it can be and the director tries far too hard to forcibly inject consistently lame humour from every pore of his film.

My Rating:-5/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

12. Housefull 2 (2012)

Not Rated | 145 min | Action, Comedy, Musical

A comedy of errors wherein four men help each other to fool their prospective father-in-laws creating a cascade of confusion and mayhem.

Director: Sajid Khan | Stars: Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Asin Thottumkal, Jacqueline Fernandez

Votes: 13,353 | Gross: $1.50M

Housefull 2 is shamefully bad and an unfunny mess.

My Rating:-5/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

13. Rowdy Rathore (2012)

Not Rated | 140 min | Action, Comedy

A con man uncovers a deadly secret and must save his lady love, the small-town locals and the little girl who insists she's his daughter, from the mob.

Director: Prabhu Deva | Stars: Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Nassar, Yashpal Sharma

Votes: 20,688 | Gross: $0.78M

Remade from Ravi Teja starrer Telugu film Vikramarkudu (2006), Rowdy Rathore is an old-school masala potboiler. The basic problem is that there is practically no plot in the first half and the second half is completely predictable.

My Rating:-5/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

14. Ferrari Ki Sawaari (2012)

Not Rated | 140 min | Comedy, Drama, Family

How the pursuit of an Indian cricket legend's Ferrari makes a young boy's dreams of playing cricket at Lords a reality.

Director: Rajesh Mapuskar | Stars: Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani, Ritvik Sahore, Paresh Rawal

Votes: 5,072 | Gross: $0.42M

Ferrari Ki Sawaari is a well-intentioned drama which entertains in parts.

My Rating:-8/10 My Verdict:-Worth a Look

15. Gangs of Wasseypur (2012)

Not Rated | 321 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

89 Metascore

A clash between Sultan and Shahid Khan leads to the expulsion of Khan from Wasseypur, and ignites a deadly blood feud spanning three generations.

Director: Anurag Kashyap | Stars: Manoj Bajpayee, Richa Chadha, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tigmanshu Dhulia

Votes: 83,845

Ridiculous, over-the-top, memorable, and perhaps, just perhaps, quite a bit smarter than it appears, Gangs of Wasseypur remains, without a doubt, the best Hindi movie I have seen in some time.

My Rating:-10/10 My Verdict:-Highly Recommended

16. Bol Bachchan (2012)

PG | 155 min | Action, Comedy

All hell breaks loose when a Muslim man breaks a temple lock to save a little child, thus for his safety keeps a Hindu name, where he starts making web of lies.

Director: Rohit Shetty | Stars: Amitabh Bachchan, Prachi Desai, Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgn

Votes: 8,254 | Gross: $1.22M

This one’s strictly for Bollywood junkies whose funny bones are easy to tickle. Yes, Bol Bachchan is a hot air balloon with no air, hot or otherwise.

My Rating:-7/10 My Verdict:-Average

17. Ek Tha Tiger (2012)

Not Rated | 132 min | Action, Romance, Thriller

India's top spy Tiger and his love Zoya battle the dark world of intelligence and espionage that forbids its soldiers from loving the enemy.

Director: Kabir Khan | Stars: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Girish Karnad, Roshan Seth

Votes: 29,296 | Gross: $2.35M

Kabir Khan takes the larger-than-life Salman Khan persona and wraps it in an engaging story that services it. Of course it’s played out like a comic book but if you’re willing to suspend disbelief there’s fun to be had.

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

18. OMG: Oh My God! (2012)

Not Rated | 125 min | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

A shopkeeper takes God to court when his shop is destroyed by an earthquake.

Director: Umesh Shukla | Stars: Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty, Mahesh Manjrekar

Votes: 52,346 | Gross: $0.92M

Oh My God is a brave and absorbing blend of satire, fable and fantasy that brings our attention to the misuse and commercialisation of religion.

My Rating:-10/10 My Verdict:-Highly Recommended

19. Crazy Mad Lover (2011)

Not Rated | 163 min | Action, Comedy, Drama

A married Canadian travels to India to re-unite with his estranged father and brother but faces obstacles and challenges.

Director: Samir Karnik | Stars: Nafisa Ali, Yugesh Anil, Madhuri Bhattacharya, Bhupindder Bhoopii

Votes: 4,027 | Gross: $0.96M

Yamla Pagla Deewana is director Samir Karnik’s paean to the Deols.Unfortunately, it’s only intermittently funny and extremely exhausting.

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

20. F.A.L.T.U (2011)

120 min | Comedy, Drama

Unable to get accepted, four academically-challenged students decide to open their own college.

Director: Remo D'Souza | Stars: Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani, Puja Gupta

Votes: 2,941

F.A.L.T.U. is a youthful film which offers fair entertainment.

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

21. Ready (2011)

Not Rated | 145 min | Action, Comedy

Set in Thailand and India, a case of mistaken identity leads to love; and a man and his family concoct a grand scheme to win over the hearts of a woman and her greedy conniving uncles.

Director: Anees Bazmee | Stars: Salman Khan, Asin Thottumkal, Paresh Rawal, Mahesh Manjrekar

Votes: 15,180 | Gross: $0.78M

Ready is the film for those who are ready to endure two dozen noisy characters for one underplayed Salman Khan.

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

22. Double Dhamaal (2011)

138 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama

Four slackers decide to avenge their humiliation at the hands of a con-man.

Director: Indra Kumar | Stars: Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey

Votes: 3,582 | Gross: $0.54M

This one's definitely not for the fastidious, choosy viewer but for those who don't mind losing it for a bit, Double Dhamaal works like an average Bollywood comedy.

My Rating:-4/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

23. Dhamaal (2007)

Not Rated | 136 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

Four lazy slacker conmen buddies who are jobless, homeless and broke learn about the secret of a hidden treasure from a dying thief and later embark on a race against time to find the mobster's buried treasure and claim it while being pursued by a determined police inspector who is hellbent to get the treasure all by himself.

Director: Indra Kumar | Stars: Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey

Votes: 13,490

As the title suggests, DHAMAAL is great fun. The comedy is not over-the-top and performances from the actors not loud.

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

24. Golmaal: Fun Unlimited (2006)

150 min | Action, Comedy, Drama

Four runaway crooks take shelter in a bungalow which is owned by a blind couple.

Director: Rohit Shetty | Stars: Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi, Tusshar Kapoor

Votes: 15,245

Golmaal is a well-timed, well-orchestrated swipe at every sacred institute in the country.

My Rating:-8/10 My Verdict:-Worth a Look

25. Golmaal Returns (2008)

Not Rated | 135 min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery

A man is sandwiched between his over possessive wife and a police inspector, where he is suspected for adultery and murder.

Director: Rohit Shetty | Stars: Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor

Votes: 7,107

'Golmaal Returns' is a kind of film you would enjoy if you have a taste for silly humour. But if you don't, then this movie is a waste of your precious bucks.

My Rating:-5/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

26. Golmaal 3 (2010)

Not Rated | 155 min | Action, Comedy

In Goa, Pritam meets his love Geeta after many years. They decide to get married but the feud between their respective children creates tension in their marriage.

Director: Rohit Shetty | Stars: Mithun Chakraborty, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Tusshar Kapoor

Votes: 7,501 | Gross: $1.13M

The third in the Golmaal series, this one is a farcical comedy without much of a story.

My Rating:-4/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

27. Bhuddah Hoga Tera Baap (2011)

Not Rated | 114 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

A quick-tempered, flamboyantly-dressed, retired hit-man returns to India for one last job. Just don't call him "Buddah"

Director: Puri Jagannadh | Stars: Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Sonu Sood, Sonal Chauhan

Votes: 2,760

Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap is not a particularly well-crafted film but none of that matters as Amitabh Bachchan makes it work.

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

28. Delhi Belly (2011)

Not Rated | 103 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

66 Metascore

Three struggling room-mates unknowingly become potential prey of a ruthless gangster.

Directors: Abhinay Deo, Akshat Verma | Stars: Imran Khan, Vir Das, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Shenaz Treasury

Votes: 27,886 | Gross: $1.53M

Seeking its spirit from Guy Ritchie's cult classic Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998),Delhi Belly polishes the crime-comedy genre by a few notches despite its unrefined ambience.

My Rating:-8/10 My Verdict:-Recommended

29. Murder 2 (2011)

Not Rated | 127 min | Action, Crime, Drama

An ex-cop is hired by a pimp to find missing call girls and the man responsible behind their abduction.

Director: Mohit Suri | Stars: Emraan Hashmi, Jacqueline Fernandez, Prashant Narayanan, Sulagna Panigrahi

Votes: 6,554

While the sensuality in the treatment seems forced in Murder 2 , the semi-slasher shade attempts to bring more justice to the title.

My Rating:-9/10 My Verdict:-Recommended

30. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011)

Not Rated | 155 min | Comedy, Drama

Three friends decide to turn their fantasy vacation into reality after one of their friends gets engaged.

Director: Zoya Akhtar | Stars: Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif

Votes: 68,877 | Gross: $3.11M

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara remains true to its narrative and is as much unadulterated as the fun the three boys have, indulging in untried adventure sports.

My Rating:-10/10 My Verdict:-Highly Recommended

31. The Dirty Picture (2011)

Not Rated | 145 min | Biography, Comedy, Drama

The love story between an actress and a director, inspired by the life of the late south Indian actress Silk Smitha.

Director: Milan Luthria | Stars: Vidya Balan, Emraan Hashmi, Tusshar Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah

Votes: 8,798

The Dirty Picture forsakes much potential nuance in its urge to please crowds but is still far more engaging than most Bollywood produce.

My Rating:-7/10 My Verdict:-Worth a Look

32. Singham (2011)

Not Rated | 143 min | Action, Crime, Drama

A truly honest police officer is transferred to a town controlled by a gangster he has humiliated. The gangster believes he can use good power to bring down this officer who made him look foolish and weak.

Director: Rohit Shetty | Stars: Ajay Devgn, Kajal Aggarwal, Prakash Raj, Sonali Kulkarni

Votes: 14,464 | Gross: $0.35M

Singham cashes in on the current scarcity of the once-popular hardcore action movie genre, which never relied much on the story but more on the constant clash between the hero and the villain.

My Rating:-9/10 My Verdict:-Recommended

33. Chala Mussaddi - Office Office (2011)

60 min | Comedy, Drama

A recently widowed and retired school-teacher must prove to corrupt government officers that he is alive, so he can receive his pension.

Director: Rajiv Mehra | Stars: Deven Bhojani, Makrand Deshpande, Vinay Jain, Farida Jalal

Votes: 342

Pankaj Kapoor once again proves what a fine actor he is as he carries forth the relentless struggle of the aam Indian against India's endemic bribe culture and official apathy but the movie falls flat.

My Rating:-5/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

34. Aarakshan (2011)

164 min | Drama, Thriller

The decision by India's supreme court to establish caste-based reservations for jobs in education causes conflict between a teacher and his mentor.

Director: Prakash Jha | Stars: Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpayee, Deepika Padukone

Votes: 5,103 | Gross: $0.34M

Aarakshan touches its core theme of reservation only in its first half and that too only partially and peripherally. The second half seems to narrate an altogether unconnected story.

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

35. Bodyguard (I) (2011)

Not Rated | 130 min | Action, Comedy, Drama

41 Metascore

The daughter of a wealthy nobleman secretly falls in love with her bodyguard.

Director: Siddique | Stars: Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Raj Babbar, Hazel Keech

Votes: 22,460

Bodyguard doesn't catch you off guard. Its an illogical movie deriving its plot elements from movies like 'Ghajini' and 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'.

My Rating:-4/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

36. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011)

Not Rated | 139 min | Comedy, Drama, Family

A quirky rom-com where Kush finds the ideal Indian bride Dimple for his brother Luv and a series of comical and unpredictable events follow.

Director: Ali Abbas Zafar | Stars: Imran Khan, Katrina Kaif, Ali Zafar, Tara D'Souza

My Rating:-6/10 My Verdict:-Average

37. Rockstar (2011)

Not Rated | 159 min | Drama, Music, Romance

Janardhan Jakhar chases his dreams of becoming a big Rock star, during which he falls in love with Heer.

Two friends lose their jobs, then part bitterly after they get exposed as male strippers.

Director: Rohit Dhawan | Stars: Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Chitrangda Singh

Votes: 13,061 | Gross: $1.07M

Desi Boyz, a film that paints so ridiculously rosy a picture of the gigolo life that it plays like a recruitment film sponsored by pimps.

My Rating:-5/10 My Verdict:-Avoid It

39. Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl (2011)

Not Rated | 140 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama
