While we are at it, why not some hindi and regional films:
1. Ek Ruka Hua Faisla -
Perfect remake of 12 Angry Men. Watch it for Pankaj Kapoor.
Director: Basu Chatterjee.
2. Sardar -
Early Ketan Mehta film. Superb acting by Paresh Rawal. Anu Kapur as Gandhi.
3. Nakayan Nayagan (Tamil) -
Kamal Hassan has never been better.
Was remade into Hindi as Dayavan which was rubbish. And before some one says it is a ripoff of godfather, it is based on the life of Varadarajan Mudaliar, a 1960s-70s Bombay don.
4. Dombivli Fast (Marathi)
Although the filming and editing is somewhat choppy and the story is simplistic, watch it!
5. Dhyasparva (Marathi)
Amul Palekar directed this film on the life of social reformer Keshav Dhondopant Karve Raghunath Karve. Shows us that we were as hypocritical 100 years ago as we are now.
