My most favorite movie on the list, it not only made me laugh like crazy but gave serious chills too. ‘Bhool Bhuliyaa’ is a classic example of how to make a perfect horror-comedy. Even after a decade of its release, Bhool Bhuliyaa is still class apart from the horror comedies made today. 

The story revolves around an NRI couple Siddharth and Avni. Upon returning to India they insist on staying at the ancestral home, despite the family members’ objections. The mansion is considered to be haunted by ghosts and soon some unexplainable events make Siddharth call on his doctor friend to help solve the mystery.

The film takes into account the controversial system of caste-based reservations in Indian government jobs and educational institutions. Although it starred some big faces from the industry like Amitab Bachchan and Saif Ali Khan, the movies performed pretty averagely at the box office.

The movie not only talks about the state of the caste system in India but openly criticizes the dominant power of Netas in democracy.

The revolves around Daniyal, an Indian special agent tasked with a job to eliminate terrorist leaders living in Pakistan. He along with his team goes on a life-threatening mission filled with enemies all around.

You might have noticed this thing that every remake of any popular movie does not live up to the hype. But this is not the case of Hritik’s starrer Agneepath. It is as good as the Agneepath starring the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.

It’s a revenge story of Vijay Chauhan against Kaancha, the person who killed his father when he was young. The story revolves around Vijay Chauhan, his relationships with his family.

Though the story is not one of its kind, the skillful actors and over the top direction don’t leave any chance to give you chilling moments throughout the movie.
