This 1975 movie directed by Yash Chopra will go down in history as one of most successful movie of Amitabh Bachhan. This was the movies which set the 'Angry Man' images of Amitabh Bachhan and made him a super star overnight.

8. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (1994)
This movie was released in 1994 and directed by Suraj Bharjataya. This family drama was almost a copy of another Bhojpuri movie 'Nadiyaa Ke Paar' but was more commercialised and hence became more popular. Starring Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit, this movie will also be remembered because of its popular music. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun was the highest grosser at the box office at that time.
9. Border (1997)
some people may question the inclusion of this film in this list. But in my opinion, this movie released in 1997, directed by J. P. Dutta was the best war epic movie ever produced in Indian film industry. Starring Sunny Deol, Jackies Shroff, Sunil Shetty, Akshay Khanna, Tabu and Pooja Bhatt, it was not only critically acclaimed but also a box office success. It was based on a real story of Battle of Longewala during India - Pakistan war of 1971. Film's music composed by Anu Malik was also admired by the public. director J. P. Dutta won the Filmfare best Director award.
10. Taare Zameen Par (2007)
This 2007 movie produced, directed and acted by Amir Khan is a story of a nine year old boy who is suffering from dyslexia but no one really understand that. This widely acclaimed movies starring Amir Khan and Darsheel Safary won the 2008 Filmfare award for best Movie. Music was composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy was another USP for the movie. The plot, the story and the message that this movie spread forced me to include this into my all time best Hindi movie list.
So, here I conclude my list of Top 10 Indian movies. As I said earlier, it may different from your list of movies, I am happy to change it if you can provide me your list and reasons to change my mind. I have not included films like 'My Name is Khan', 'Singh is King' etc even they are the highest money grosser. Money cannot buy you everything, at least not a place in my list.
