1. The Lunchbox (2013)

IMDb Rating: 7.8/10

Director: Ritesh Batra

Writer: Ritesh Batra

Cast: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Let’s start our article with one of the most underrated and a gem of a movie produced by Bollywood, which is The Lunchbox. The story of Lunchbox revolves around an Indian homemaker and an older man. The film starts with a simple premise. What if the critically acclaimed Mumbai Dabbawala misplaced a lunchbox?

With this simple hook, we are led into a story that is full of love, family, and emotions. The movie takes you on a journey that you will never be able to forget. What happens, you ask? Well, you will have to watch the movie to find out, won’t you? The Lunchbox is one of the best Netflix Hindi movies to watch.

2. Queen (2014)

IMDb Rating: 8.2/10

Director: Vikas Bahl

Writer: Anvita Dutt Guptan

Cast: Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao, Lisa Haydon

One of my favorite Netflix Hindi movies of all time is Queen. The story revolves around a traditional family girl who has never set foot out of her comfort zone and now decided to tour Europe independently. What forces her to take this step and what happens afterward is the whole story of the movie.

The movie is hilarious and sad at the same time. Kangana Ranawat, who plays the lead character Rani has killed her performance in this movie. It’s one Netflix Hindi movie that you won’t regret watching.

3. Manto (2018)

Director: Nandita Das

Writer: Nandita Das

Manto is the life story of controversial and troubled Indo-Pakistani writer Sadat Hussain Manto. The story focuses on the artistic and censorship challenges faced by the writers while creating their work. The ever-awesome Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the main character Manto, and might I say it is one of his best performances yet. The plot is gripping and will hold you till the last minute. I enjoyed watching this movie and highly recommend it to all Netflix viewers.

Director: Neeraj Pandey

While Hollywood is full of great con movies, it’s something that Bollywood has never been able to get right, that is until Special 26 hit the theatres. Starring Akshay Kumar, the movie revolves around a con man and his team who pose as CBI and Income Tax officers to rob prominent wealthy businessmen and politicians who are evading tax.

IMDb Rating: 7.5/10

Director: Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari

Writer: Nitesh Tiwari, Shreyas Jain

Cast: Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao

Released in 2017, Bareilly ki Barfi is a movie that will tickle your funny bones in all the right places. Boasting of a talented star cast including Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon, Rajkummar Rao, and my favorite Pankaj Tripathi, the story revolves around Bitti, who is a free-spirited small-town girl who lives her life on her own terms. What happens to her when she meets Chirag Dubey (Ayushman), and Pritam Vidrohi (Rajkumar Rao) is the whole movie. This one is an entertainment bomb.

Mom is the last work of Bollywood superstar Sridevi who sadly passed away this year.

Udta Punjab is a collection of stories that focuses on drug abuse in the affluent north-Indian State of Punjab and how this addiction has corrupted the youth.

Based on the Malayalam super hit movie of the same name, Drishyam is a story about a man who will do anything to save his family. Ajay Devan plays the lead character, and he has killed with his performance in this role. To talk more about this movie will mean that I will have to give key plot points away, and I don’t want to do that. Just know that this is one of the best thriller movies Bollywood has ever produced.

Director: Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury

Writer: Shoojit Sircar, Ritesh Shah, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury

Pink (2016) is an excellent Hindi movie on Netflix which hits on the patriarchal nature of Indian society, which is ready to blame girls on each and every turn. The movie is made great by the exceptional performance of Amitabh Bachchan, who plays the role of a retired lawyer who picks up practicing again to save three young women who are implicated in a crime.

Writer: K. V. Vijayendra Prasad

Cast: Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah, Anushka Shetty

Baahubali and its sequel Baahubali 2 are probably the most hyped movie in India, and deservedly so. No movie has ended on such a cliffhanger as Baahubali. The period drama

featuring Prabhas has been directed by the critically acclaimed S.S. Rajamouli. While this is not technically a Bollywood movie, it was made in collaboration with Dharma Production, and I had to include it on this list.

14. Dear Zindagi (2016)

IMDb Rating: 7.6/10

Director: Gauri Shinde

Writer: Gauri Shinde

Cast: Alia Bhatt, Shah Rukh Khan

I had stopped expecting good movies from Shahrukh Khan after Chennai Express, and I was mostly right. However, the release of Dear Zindagi changed all that. Seeing Shahrukh in a story-driven plot is something of an anomaly these days, and hence Dear Zindagi is a must-watch. Propelled by a gripping storyline and great performances from Alia Bhatt and Shahrukh Khan, this is a movie that you don’t want to miss.

A Netflix original Hindi movie, Gurgaon features a superb acting performance from its star cast.

Director: Nitesh Tiwari

Writer: Nitesh Tiwari, Piyush Gupta, Shreyas Jain, Nikhil Mehrotra

Cast: Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Zaira Wasim, Sanya Malhotra

I don’t think there are too many Bollywood sports films that are as memorable as Dangal. Mr. perfectionist “Aamir Khan” has excelled in his role as a former wrestler (Mahavir Singh) who pursues the gold medal he never won by training his two strong-willed daughters named Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari. Set in the Indian state of Haryana, the film is loosely based on the Phogat family and its tryst with the coveted medals at the Commonwealth Games. Beyond the story, Pritam’s music and Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lyrics are also worthy of praise.

30. Jaane tu Ya Jaane Na (2008)

IMDb Rating: 7.5/10

Director: Abbas Tyrewala

Writer: Abbas Tyrewala

Cast: Imran Khan, Genelia D’Souza, Prateik Babbar

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na is a comedy love story and one of the best feel-good movies in Bollywood. When the movie was released back in 2008, it became a sensation among teenagers, and it still is one of the best romantic comedies produced by Bollywood.

The story revolves around two friends who don’t believe that they love each other. And to prove others wrong, they promise to find romantic partners for each other. However, once they succeed in their mission, they slowly realize that they loved each other after all. The storyline is basic, but the comedic punches and songs are great. If you love Bollywood masala flicks, you are going to enjoy his one a lot.

31. Guru (2006)

IMDb Rating: 7.7/10

Director: Mani Ratnam

Writer: Mani Ratnam, Vijay Krishna Acharya

Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Mithun Chakraborty, R. Madhavan

Guru showcases that Abhishek Bachchan is not as inept an actor as everyone thinks him to be. The movie is loosely based on the life of Dhiru Bhai Ambani — the founder of Reliance. It’s not a biography but takes a lot of inspiration from his life. It showcases the rise of a villager who came to Bombay in 1958 and rose to become the most prominent industry tycoon in the country.

I enjoyed watching this movie tremendously. The script is tight, and the casting is perfect. Abhishek Bachchan kills it as the main character Gurukant Desai, and so does Aishwarya Rai as her wife. Add Mithun Chakraborty, R. Madhavan, Vidya Balan, and more such talented supporting actors, and you get a gripping story performed by masterful actors and actresses.

The final feather in the crown is the music scored by A. R. Rahman and the lyrics by Gulzaar. Guru’s music will make you smile, laugh, and cry. It will take you on a journey. It complements the movie and doesn’t take you out of it. If you have not watched Guru before, I highly urge you to watch it.

For folks on the lookout for a scintillating historical action drama film, “Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran” appears to be a fair bet. The film is directed by Abhishek Sharma and features John Abraham, Diana Penty, and Boman Irani in major roles.

If you haven’t already guessed it, let me tell you that it’s based on the nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998 during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s government. In a nutshell, Parmanu is an ode to the incredible bravery of the Indian Army and the resolute scientists.

33. Rang de Basanti (2006)

IMDb Rating: 8.1/10

Director: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra

Writer: Rensil D’Silva, Prasoon Joshi, Kamlesh Pandey

Cast: Aamir Khan, Siddharth, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Atul Kulkarni

Rang de Basanti is probably my favorite Bollywood movie of all time. Not only does the movie have a good story and excellent acting, but it’s also a masterpiece of the craft of movie-making itself. The way this movie cuts between its two main timelines is exquisite. You never feel out of place, and every sequence fits perfectly.

Talking about the plot, it’s a story of Indian Youth and how they reconnect with their past. The story revolves around six young Indians who assist an English Woman in filming a documentary on freedom fighters. As they are filming the documentary, they learn about the sacrifices that were made to make this country and the responsibilities that have been placed on us to move this country forward.

The legendary Mr. A. R. Rahman has scored the movie, so you know the music is going to be great. If you love a thought-provoking movie that makes you rethink your life choices, this is the movie for you.

IMDb Rating: 7.9/10

Director: Abhishek Kapoor

Writer: Pubali Chaudhari, Supratik Sen, Abhishek Kapoor, Chetan Bhagat

Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Rajkummar Rao

Kai Po Che is one of the best Bollywood movies that you can watch on Netflix. On its surface, the story is about three friends who want to open a cricket Academy in Ahmadabad. But once you start watching it, you will realize that it has far deeper themes of friendship, love, and life. Based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel — 3 Mistakes of My Life — Kai Po Che is a must-watch for every Bollywood lover.

Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, Kai Po Che stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Rajkummar Rao, Amrita Puri, and Asif Basra. Made on a budget of ₹300 million (US$4.2 million), Kai Po Che! was able to amass ₹830 million (US$12 million) worldwide, becoming a critical and commercial success.

35. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017)

IMDb Rating: 7.3/10

Director: Shree Narayan Singh

Writer: Siddharth Singh

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar

As a satirical comedy, “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” has lived up to my billing. And rightly so, as the movie is a pretty interesting representation of government campaigns to improve sanitation conditions in India with the sole focus on the elimination of open defecation.

With an impressive cast led by the likes of Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, Anupam Kher, and Sudhir Pandey, the film succeeds in highlighting India’s toilet problem with a great mix of love and comedy. So, it deserves a shot in this roundup of the top Bollywood movies on Netflix.

36. Tamasha (2015)

IMDb Rating: 7.4/10

Director: Imtiaz Ali

Writer: Imtiaz Ali

Cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone

If a modern romantic film is what you are willing to stream, Tamasha would be my recommendation for multiple reasons. First and foremost, this movie is about real-life ex-flames: Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

The film (directed by Imtiaz Ali) is set around Ved Vardhan Sahni (Ranbir) and showcases his life in three different stages: a nine-year-old child, a 19-year-old teenager, and a 30-year-old adult. With A.R Rahman’s soundtrack and Irshad Kamil’s lyrics, Tamasha won’t fail to touch your heart, should you have a penchant for romantic flicks.

37. Article 15 (2019)

IMDb Rating: 8.2/10

Director: Anubhav Sinha

Writer: Anubhav Sinha, Gaurav Solanki

Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Nassar, Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra

Article 15 is a gem of a movie. It showcases the cast divide that is still plaguing rural India. Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the movie stars Ayushman Khurrana in the role of an IPS officer. He is transferred to a rural area, where he fights to bring justice to a strange case of missing girls and breaks the social prejudices in the process.

The movie title is taken from Article 15 of the Indian constitution which abolished any discrimination based on religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth, or any of them. My favorite thing about this movie is that it doesn’t show any heroism. Ayushman Khurrana works with the resources he has and solves the case like a normal police officer. You are going to enjoy this one.

38. Badhai Do (2022)

Director: Harshavardhan Kulkarni

Badhai Do is a spiritual successor to the movie Badhai Ho continues to shed light on socially uncomfortable topics. Starring Rajkummar Rao(Shardul) and Bhumi Pednekar(Sumi) as a couple in a lavender marriage, this movie talks about gay and lesbian relationships. Everything seems to work fine in their marriage of convenience until Sumi’s girlfriend comes to live with them. The movie openly talks about the hardships the LGBTQ+ community is going through and how our society is yet to understand the seriousness of the issue. Targeting the homophobic contributours of society, both the lead actors have given a fabulous performance motivating those from the community to come out of the closet.

40. Dev D (2009)

IMDb Rating: 8/10

Director: Anurag Kashyap

Writer: Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane

Cast: Abhay Deol, Mahie Gill, Kalki Koechlin

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s masterpiece Devdas (based on a novel of the same name by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay) is a masterpiece that should never get a remake. Its beauty is something intangible that can never be captured. And thankfully, Anurag Kashyap has not tried to do that in his movie Dev D. Instead, he has given his modern take on the novel and created a gem.

Think of it as BBC’s Sherlock. It takes the same old story but places it in the confinement of modern society. Both the story adaptation and the music are phenomenal. You are going to watch this one again and again.

41. Bulbbul (2020)

IMDb Rating: 6.5/10

Director: Anvita Dutt

Writer: Anvita Dutt

Cast: Tripti Dimri, Avinash Tiwary, Paoli Dam, Rahul Bose, Parambrata Chatterjee

Bulbbul, despite its thinly written story and characters, outperforms numerous dim-witted Bollywood movies. The movie is produced by Anushka Sharma and directed by Anvita Dutt. It reimagines the concept of cliche horror stories from Indian folktales and presents a predictable yet mysterious story. A young bride grows up to be an enigmatic woman looking after the ancient Haveli. Meanwhile, the villagers are meeting mysterious supernatural deaths. Because of the weak script, the movie heavily depends on music scores and cinematography to convey the desired feeling, and it works tremendously well. The night sequences with blood-red shade and alluring music scores by composer Amit Trivedi are enough to make this movie a must-watch.
