Here is the year-wise compilation of Bollywood movies I consider best. You are, however, free to suggest your preferences and I promise to include them in the list.
Friends, though I have made all efforts to track their year of releases, yet there may be some inadequacies which may be pointed out.
Till then … read the list, buy CDs, see them and N-joy…

Chandralekha 1948…i wld like to buy. Where can i get at a bargain price? I really need to get it asap…please help.thanks.
Hey great list…Thanks
I’m seriously NOT a fan of Raj Kapoor. So I don’t really watch his films.. But I have already seen all of the films listed.
I am trying to remembera movie name (released between 1963-1965) starring Deb Mukherji which has the song “jab jab bahar aayee aur phool muskuraye, mujhe tum yaad aaye…..”.
can you help in identifying the name of the movie and can I get that song on the net?
I think the name of the movie being inquired by Mr. H.C.Sinha here in the comments is “Taqdeer”. It’s a 1967 movie.
Thanks Pankaj. I had just forgotten to find out and post. I appreciate your gesture.
Sir, I would like to add some of the good grossers for 2007 which are missing in your list. – TARE ZAMEE PER, NAMASTEY LONDON, WELCOME.
Thanx for updating we espians many of whom certainly are complete movies-buffs. I am definetely craving for some from the list which we just heard about.
‘Don’ starrring AB is missing, released either in 78 or 77. 2006 was indeed a great year for movies in recent times. I would also recommend ‘Gangster’ starring Shiney Ahuja and Kangana Ranaut. This was better than ‘Fanaa’.
Dear Neeraj Bhai,
Nice to see the list of some momarable Hindi movies. What about making a list of “top 10 Hindi movies ever made”. I would love to see the fight among the best movies.
you havent added namaste london;dil chahta hai,tare zamin par;kal ho na ho
