10 Best Blockbuster Movies of Bollywood
10 Best Blockbuster Movies of Bollywood. Indian films are far from always naive musicals. These are also thrillers, light melodramas, epic historical tapes and sparkling comedies. We have collected here 10 films of various genres – famous not only in their native country, but also abroad
Mughal – E – Azam (1960)
This film is considered the most expensive and highest grossing film in the history of India. Initially, it was shot in black and white, and then digitized in color, already in 2004 – and after that it again gathered an incredible box office. The main plot is the story of the forbidden love of the Mughal prince Salim, the son of Emperor Akbar, and the court dancer Anarkali.
Mother India (1957)
The main character of the film is Radha, the widowed mother of two children. She is struggling to survive and protect her family and land from the cunning money-lender. The tape is at the same time a dedication to Indian women, and a hymn to India of the past, and a story about peasants inextricably linked with the land.
Sholay / Revenge and the Law (1975)
You will find this film in any top Indian film, and often it is put in the first place. The film does not have a clear genre – here is a detective story, and action, and western. The plot seems to be simple: a former policeman hires two petty thieves to help him catch a desperate bandit with whom he has his own scores. But it was shot so exciting that Revenge and the Law was played in movie theaters for five years in a row.
The story of how to laugh in the face of death. The main character of the film Anand is a terminally ill person who refused to indulge in despondency and who continued to help people to the very end.

Everyone knows that the villagers won, but how they went to a victory that no one believed in was worth a look.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge / The Uncleaned Bride (1995)

Judicial drama. The main character of Damini is a simple dancer. She was lucky, and she met a loving and beloved, wealthy husband.
