2.Black Friday (2004)

Aditya Srivastava, Kay Kay Menon, and Pavan Malhotra star in the film.

Drama and Thriller

Long before Anurag Kashyap burst onto the international scene with films like 2012's 'Gangs of Wasseypur,' he struggled to release this contentious real-life drama about the infamous 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts - arguably his best film to date. Kashyap stayed true to investigative journalist Hussain Zaidi's version of the bombing's planning, execution, and aftermath, and he got great performances from his ensemble cast. 'Black Friday' is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch an engaging best Hindi movie based on a true story.

3.Kahaani (2012)

Sujoy Ghosh is the director.

Vidya Balan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Parambrata Chatterjee star.

Thriller and Drama

With 'Kahaani,' director Sujoy Ghosh and writers Suresh Nair, Ritesh Shah, Advaita Kala, and Nikhil Vyas created a near-perfect thriller that is straightforward, fast-paced, and intelligent. Vidya Balan's image as the rare female actor who can deliver hits solely on the strength of her reputation received a boost after the film's release. Vidya, a pregnant woman, travels to Kolkata in search of her missing husband. Great supporting performances by Siddiqui and Chatterjee, as well as a late twist, make 'Kahaani' an extremely watchable film.

4.Thappad (2020)

Anubhav Sinha is the director.

Taapsee Pannu, Dia Mirza, Ratna Pathak Shah, Manav Kaul, and Pavail Gulati star in the film.

Drama is the genre.

While older Indian films glorified such behavior, Thappad flips old tropes about how domestic violence should never be tolerated. Amrita (Taapsee Pannu) and Vikram (Pavail Gulati) are the picture of marital bliss until he slaps her in front of his colleagues during a house party. This shakes her to the core of her being, and she moves in with her parents and seeks divorce. Patriarchal society and her mother tell her to dismiss it as an isolated incident, but she knows she can't live with a man capable of such behavior. Her father, Kumud Mishra, plays her father in a gentle and beautifully etched role, assists her on her arduous journey, where she is carrying the child of a man she cannot possibly live with.

Westerns, Action, and Thrillers Make Up This Genre

During the events of this cult masala western, escaped convicts Veeru (Dharmendra) and Jai (Bachchan) defend a community from bandits led by the psychotic Gabbar Singh (Khan). The movie 'Sholay' has everything: great songs, memorable battle scenes, plot twists, thrilling dance sequences, brilliant performances, and bromance between the male leads. The spine-tingling soundtrack and Bollywood's most sinister antagonist are the cherry on top of a rollicking, action-packed confection.

The director is Aditya Chopra.

Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Amrish Puri

Romance, comedy, and family

Ashutosh Gowariker is the director of the film

Aamir Khan and Gracy Singh

Categories:  Action, Drama, Sport, and History

In 'Lagaan,' a drought-stricken village unites, learns cricket, and challenges their cruel imperial rulers in the nineteenth century. Although the combination of cricket and colonialism seems obvious in hindsight, no one initially wanted to touch this script. Then, Aamir Khan assumed the lead role, and the film's critical and commercial success ushered in a new era of alternative subject matter and diverse narratives.

8.3 Idiots (2009)

Rajkumar Hirani is the director.

It was confirmed that Aamir Khan is the master of blending profound themes with good old-fashioned family entertainment thanks to the massive success of the film "3 Idiots," which was a major smash.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the Director

Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff

Categories:  Drama, Romance

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's sumptuous adaptation of Sarat Chandra's simple novel signified a shift toward excessive theatricality for the director, whose subsequent films include 'Guzaarish' and 'Saawariya'. In 'Devdas,' his manner was at its most natural and audacious. Its primary characters, Devdas (Khan) and Paro (Rai), are childhood sweethearts separated by social disparities and challenging parents.

10.Hera Pheri (2000)

Priyadarshan is the Director

Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, and Paresh Rawal make up the cast.

Categories:  Comedy, Drama, and Musical

In this famous comedy, the absurd plot involving a botched kidnapping and phone calls to the wrong number is balanced by the excellent performances of Kumar, Shetty, and Rawal, who play the three main characters. After several years as a supporting actor, the latter became an instant sensation with the release of 'Hera Pheri.' His portrayal of an inebriated, naive, and partially blind garage owner who rents his home to two little boys brought down the house. Even after many viewings, the film is still enjoyable.
