Director: Guru Dutt
This film is it. Watch it for the beautiful cinematography, the poetic songs, unforgettable dialogues, Waheeda Rahman ... watch it for Guru Dutt!
The Lion King (1994)
Directors: Roger Allers, Rob Minkoff
The Lion King is cartoon royalty!
Director: Danny Boyle
Just. Watch. It.
Blue Jasmine (2013)
Director: Woody Allen
Cate Blanchett makes it all look so easy; she’s such a fine actor. Blue Jasmine is one of Allen’s best works.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Director: Michel Gondry
It’s a strange thing … to watch a film based on an unreal concept that feels so close to home, so real. In the film, Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet are at their charming best.
Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)
Director: Robert Benton
Personally, I enjoy watching the first works of artists. This is Meryl Streep’s first film, but since it’s the majesty herself, she was perfect even in her first film. Dustin Hoffman and the boy who played the child are also brilliant.
The Godfather (1972)
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
It’s underrated. No, I’m serious. It is.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Director: Quentin Tarantino
It is the coolest gangster film! The chemistry between the cast members is insane.
Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
Director: David O Russell
It’s so much more than just a rom-com. The direction and acting are flawless. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are perfect in it.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Director: Gil Junger
Yes. Please watch it. It’s one of the best teenybopper films. The writing is great, acting even better and it also has Heath Ledger in it.
The writer is a Pakistani actor who will be making her Bollywood debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raees’
