Lists by Deepak_Futela
Here is the list of Top 150 Hindi movies based on the same formula used for "IMDb Top 250" Chart.
The formula for calculating the Top Rated 150 Hindi Titles gives a true Bayesian estimate:
weighted rating (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C
*R = average for the movie (mean) = (Rating)
*v = number of votes for the movie = (votes)
*m = minimum votes required to be listed in the Top 250 (currently 1000)
*C = the mean vote across the whole report (currently 7.96)
Minimum IMDb rating for the movie to be in the list is 7.5
The sequence of movies in the list is in descending order of the weighted rating not the IMDb rating.
IMO.. Many great & good movies are missing and many average movies are present here due to inflated rating. The list is based on stats just like IMDb Top 250 Chart.
These are the Hindi (Indian, Bollywood) movies that can be watched again & again and still can be enjoyed with same level of excitement, you'll have while watching first time.
This is the list of English movies that I have watched and enjoyed each & every moment of them.. Some for their story, some for their direction, some for their cinematography and some for their everything from Script to Background Score..
These are the directors born in India, who have made such great movies that their name will live for centuries even when they won't be there.
Some of these are already legends, like Satyajit Ray, Hrishikesh and Shyam Benegal.
Some of these are legends in making and have proved their mettle time again and again like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ram Gopal Varma and Maniratnam.
Some have simply re-defined the Indian Cinema like Vishal Bhardwaj, Anurag Kashyap and Dibakar Banerjee.
And some of these, though, have only two or three movies to their names like Shojit Sircar and Vikramaditya Motwane, but those two or three movies have assured that these directors will have a great impact on Indian Cinema in future.
The list doesn't boast of any Indian who has garnered fame in Hollywood like Tarsem Singh, M Night Shayamalan, Shakhar Kapur, Mira Nair, Deepa Mehta OR Gurinder Chaddha etc...
PS: I have included only those directors in the list of who's work I have seen. NOM to any fan of some person who is not included in the list.
PPS: I haven't rated them better or best, all of them are great, so please ignore the sequence.
These are the best of movies I have seen, that belong to various Europian, Asian & South East Countries. Some of these are real eye openers and some show the culture of their respective country beautifully. Some are for just sheer entertainment and some are simply outstanding for their thought provoking subject matter.
Every year India churns out hunderds of Masala movies (A genre lesser known outside of India, a mixture of all genres, be it comedy romance, action or drama).
Although several movies are released under Comedy genre too, but most of those are either inspired by Hollywood movies or just are simply dumb (like Chennai Express or most of Salman Khan or Akshay Kumar movies)..
Still there are some smart & off-beat comedies that you want to watch again just to have a good laugh.. following are some of those, let me know if I missed something good..
Criteria: The movie should have 1000+ votes and 6+ IMDb rating..
Since 4 Hindi Movies are already there in IMDb Top 250, (YES.. There are REALLY -)), which one of these Hindi movies would you like to see there..?
All these movies have more than 5000+ votes and have 7+ IMDb rating.

India is the biggest producer of movies in terms of numbers and Bollywood leads it with Hunderds of Hindi movies every year. Only a few are actually good where rest is like garbage. Which is the worst Hindi movie you have watched or might have just left it in between because you simply couldn't bear it :) ...
These movies have those scenes (real or artificial) which make the film so beautiful and makes you want to be there at that location even if you know it might not be real. These have the best photography (may be not technically, but its attractive, astonishing and soulful at the same time). The movies are from all over the world and not specific to Hollywood or any specific movie industry.
The list of movies either made on Non-Resident Indians & Foreigner's Traveling to India OR Indians' relationships with British OR the movie where an Indian actor is in lead role in an International movie.. (Not all the movies are perfect or simply great but very good & enjoyable)...
These are the movies which have unique, interesting & soul touching score & soundtracks. The list is only a reference for music lovers who don't mind what language the movie is in.
