In certain cases, they even fail at showcasing the predicaments involved and unconsciously insult the sufferers. But, 'Margarita with a Straw' clearly and sensitively portrays a deep story with novel intentions. The ultimate filmmaking and storytelling talent directed the final product into a miraculous art piece.

#4. Mera Naam Joker

This evergreen film definitely left an impression even though it flopped. The reason is simple - it was way ahead of its time. The film retains its charm till date. 'Mera Naam Joker' is a semi-autobiographical story by Raj Kapoor regarding the hardships, life, and philosophies of an entertainer.

#5. Lagaan

The film might not have won the Oscars but it's no less than other internationally acclaimed film. During those times, the nominations for the Oscars was in itself a moment of acknowledgment and appreciation. The film is audacious and it's great. But a few people believe that the failure to make a mainstream launch marred its probability to be chosen in the final analyses. Although Gowarikar and Aamir had a fair share at learning about the Hollywood politics, marketing, and distribution.

#6. Baahubali

Unquestionably, Baahubali is seen to be a game changer that actually raised the bar for Indian films. In terms of visual effects, the production farmed out around 17 VFX companies along with other individual artists. It created a new language like that of Dothraki in the 'Game Of Thrones'. The film is quite popular and it has left almost no hearts untouched.

#7. Jodha Akbar

This film could be a prolonged torture for some, but least do they understand that it's true form of richness. 'Jodha Akbar' surely seems like a bulky historical book but the hard work really shows on the screen. There aren't any boring moments and the 3 years long production time earns quite a lot of profit and gathers maximum eye balls.
