This topic is actually interesting for me but I'm feeling confused while writing this post, as, I generally like watching offbeat movies. I really feel good how Indian Cinema has transformed and we get to see some really good, intelligent and different films. It's really difficult for me to shrink my favourites to just five! Still I'm trying:
The first one would be Namkeen, directed by Gulzar. The book is based on a story "Akal Basant" by Samaresh Basu. This film tells a very poignant story of three unmarried sisters, played by Sharmila Tagore, Shabana Azmi and Kiran Vairale, who live with their old mother Jugni, a former dancer in nautanki, played by Waheeda Rehman, whose husband leaves her in the lurch with three daughters. Gerulal, played by Sanjeev Kumar is their tenant who make them feel secure.
Mr & Mrs Iyer, I think, is the mildest love story of Indian Cinema, and I liked it! The story revolves around a Tamilian Brahmin woman, who is travelling with her toddler and Muslim Bengali wildlife photographer. They share a moving and shattering journey together where they witness the brutal face of communal riots.
