The essence of Bollywood has been long lost and the movies that deserved all the attention and appreciation of the audience were neglected. There are many gems in the Bollywood that are not yet appreciated the way they should be and therefore I have summed up a list for you of the movies that you won't regret watching. In fact, you are going to advise people to watch these movies!

The movie with an ultimate truth about the society, its mis-conceptions and hypocrisy that our society carry in its veins.

Well, society would never want you to watch this movie, and this the main reason that you should definitely watch this movie!

How many of us tries to fight against the so-called System? None of us! We just like to complain about the corruption but do nothing about it!

Newton is a story about a government clerk who tries to run a free and fair election in a conflict area in central India. This movie guarantees an amazing experience with equally amazing dialogues.

10)Bareilly Ki Barfi
