Being an ardent movie buff, I shall do justice to my love for movies by listing out my all time ten favorite movies. Without much ado, let me brief in a line or two about each of these ten movies.
The movies are not ranked in any specific order because each of these ten movies are special in their own terms

The Shawshank Redemption

Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman strike a deadly combination in this 3 hour masterpiece. They meet in a prison and how they influence each other forms the crux of the story.

Malena

A small boy's love for a lady sees him fighting against all odds to restore her lost pride. The screenplay is simply mindboggling. This Italian movie is also close to my heart as it is directed by my favorite movie maker, Tornatore.


Legend of 1900

A concept that had never been thought before. He does not have a country, He does not have a name like others. But he is simply amazing.Tim Roth Romances with the Piano.A sleek script that would pierce the souls.Another standing ovation for Tornatore.


Forrest Gump

He starts running and he never stops. This emotional comedy will take us through a ride down historical dates. Tom Hanks clearly makes a mark and makes us believe that he is the BEST.


The Color of Paradise

Majid Majidi, The great Iranian film maker has done a magnificient job in detailing the world of a blind Boy. This movie will melt even the stone hearted.

Black

Indian Movies took a big leap with this movie.Amitabh and Rani go hand in hand in this modern day classic.


Beijing Bicycle

One Bicycle; Two Guys and one girl. How a simple bicycle changes the life of two guys forms the plot of the story. By the way, am off to Beijing this week.

Anbe Sivam

Kamal Hasan again proves why he is the best Non-Hollywood actor. Every one has a sad past; So does he.


Enemy at the Gates.

A snap shooter from the Russian Village. He plays a big role in the world war. A thriller, neatly tailored.


Cinema Paradiso

Simply, the best movie I have seen in my life.It is the story of an old man and his relationship with a small boy Toto.If you have not watched this movie, then you are surely missing something indeed.Tornatore at his best.
