My Favourite Hindi Moviesby swarnim-sa | created - 06 Aug 2011 | updated - 08 Oct 2014 | Public
well, i am not a big hindi cinema connoisseur but these are some of the movies that i absolutely love. it should not come as a surprise that almost all of them are post-2000 era films as it seems that the film industry is undergoing a golden period of film making since then, developing gritty and varying films for the mature audience and not just formulas-tic nonsense which used to be the case earlier.
