Whenever someone mentions his best films, he or she must also mention that this selection is done at what age, as selection gets greatly influenced by one’s age.

Selecting best films at the age of 20 will be quite different from making this selection on reaching the age 30 or 40 and so on.

Therefore age is a factor which indirectly conveys the evolution of the particular person who is selecting them. But evolution cannot be taken as a measure of one’s intelligence scale. These are just different stages of life which influence our liking for particular films.

Secondly, every person has his own liking and disliking for a particular film, so it is entirely a personal choice and no one can claim that his choice is better than the others.

My choice of best ten Hindi films (at the age 50 years) is as follows (in order of ranking):


  1. Garam hawa
  2. Kagaz ke phool
  3. Pyasa

4  Lage raho  Munna Bhai

  1. Anand

6  Chupke chupke

7 Guide

8 Mughle Azam

9  Gangs of Waasseypur (part 1 )

10 .Munna Bhai  MBBS

Few more films (mentioned below) were also quite close to making to the top ten, therefore worth a mention;

11 .Paakeeza

12  Lajwanti

  1. Teesri kasam
  2. Saheb Biwi aur Gulam
  3. Taare Zameen Par
  4. Aligarh
