Must watch movies!

Must watch movies!

November 2, 2012 Off By Survey Group


With close to 1000 films made each year, it’s no secret that India is world’s largest movie producer. Clearly it is impossible and completely unadvisable to watch all movies that are made. Having said, it would be a rather dull life if you stay away from some of the greats that have been made by the filmmakers in the country. That too however is a tough task to compile.

We asked some well-known people from the film industry itself to give us a list of must-watch movies… inhe nahi dekha toh kuch nahi dekha!

Let’s see how many have you seen and how much you agree with them!
