The best of Bollywood

Outlook recently conducted a survey for some of the best Bollywood movies made till date; the jury included prominent Indian directors of the present and the recent past with varying flavours.

Incidentally, most of the movies that occupied the top ten slots included movies made in the 60's and 70's era and only one film from the current era featured in the top ten. Now then, is there a message for Bollywood to read in that? Despite the fact that the technology these days, the craft of movie making these days is leaps and bounds ahead of the 60's and 70's, why is it that even some the big production houses have failed to stand up to the standards of the 70's? Is there too much focus on technicalities, finances, demands of stars, locations?or to put it otherwise the foundation, the essence of the story, is out of perspective these days.

Well, we can leave bollywood to ponder about the free flowing questions that just popped out of our heads, and have a look at some of the top films made in bollywood: Taking the lead is Mother India, followed by Sholay, Mughal-E-Azam, Pyasa, Sahib Bibi Aur Gulam, Do Bigha Zamin, Kaagaz ke phool, Deewar, Awaara, and Lagaan.

These days the trend seems to be boomeranging back as low budget Hindi and Hinglish movies are entertaining the public with their unheard but simple story lines.
