The list is heavily tilted towards last decade or so.

Ah well, it's the bar junta's verdict. :)

@shashikant

But the heavywieght winner tilts the scales to a much older decade!

Ambuj Saxena said...

Gunda is the best movie ever. No one who has seen the movie can deny it. And it doesn't need ratification from polls like this. :P

Kanan said...

Sayesha, awesome topic and great work by you of course!

I'd love to see the movies that single vote. Since you've already started with the list, I feel lazy to create one. :P

Thanks in advance! :D

Kanan said...

Hey I thought there were at least three votes for Golmaal (1979). No? At first, I thought it was all those Gold comments (I am wanting to know the history/mystery of this GOLD! SILVER! PLATINUM! screams), but nope, actually Golmaal got three votes, fair and square, by: Movie Freak, Nits, rt. Not fair, Sayesha. :P hehe sorry, I am nitpicking cause my vote was a tie between Golmaal and Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon. I had to go with the "old is gold" rule and thus this 1963 movie got my vote.

Ace said...

How about next time the movie poll is restricted to a decade or so to make life easier? =)

Hehe! Good point! :)

Shukr manao Bhai ke haath mein koi newspaper nahin tha! :P

//(IST)

Hahahahhaha! Tu sudhrega nahin? :D

#Satish,
Hain?? Deewar?? My favourite movie?? NO WAY MAN! I don't think any Amitabh Bachchan movie can be my favourite. :P

#Thisisme,
Hehe... hota hai hota hai! :P

#Ambuj,
Gunda?? Never heard of it! Heard of Aaj ka gundaraj though! Hahaha! What a name! Are you sure you're in the right poll? The poll for worst movie is some time later! :P

#Kanan,
Thanks! Yeah I think the list of single votes wala movies is a good one. :) Here it is!

Khatta meetha
Golmaal
Jhankaar beats
Guide
Hazaaron khwahishen aisi
Deewar
U, me aur hum
Satya
Kya kool hain hum
Chhoti si baat
Phir wohi dil laya hoon
Socha na tha
Daddy
Kuch kuch hota hai
Thoda sa rumani ho jaayein
Hum aapne hain kaun
Arth
Ijaazat
Kal ho na ho
Jaane bhi do yaaron
Hera Pheri
Khamoshi
Padosan
Pyasa

//Hey I thought there were at least three votes for Golmaal (1979). No? actually Golmaal got three votes, fair and square, by: Movie Freak, Nits, rt. Not fair, Sayesha. :P

Hahaha! Movie Freak's vote didn't count. I'd said only votes with a single movie name will count. He named two! :D

//I am wanting to know the history/mystery of this GOLD! SILVER! PLATINUM! screams

Hehehe! It started long ago when there was a scramble to get the first comment on a post. Some bewda started this thing, and now whoever posts the first comment yells "GOLD!" :P :P :P

#Ace,
Not a bad idea! :) But the next one (worst movie ever) has to be across the decades... I am quite excited about that one! :P

Ambuj Saxena said...

@Sayesha

Yes, I am talking about the best movie ever. Check it out on IMDB. With an average of 8.5/10 rating (1250+ votes), it squares any other Indian movie. Swades is at 8.4, DCH at 8.2, DDLJ at 7.8, and Sholay at 7.2. Ironically the higher a movie is on your top list, the worse the world rates it.

You may watch it if you want (Warning: Strong language content). For best effects, watch with friends.

Urv said...

Worst movie poll would be hell lot of fun Bhai.

Aur apna favorite movie bata do Bhai. Does the movie also involve some Bhai ;)

Sayesha said...

#Ambuj,
Holy cow! There's no way I am watching that! Lamboo Aata it seems! Hahahahaha! :D

#Anonymous (ab),
Arre there is one vote for KKHH! And yes, the first time I saw KKHH, I totally bawled my eyes at the scene you mentioned... not anymore though. :)

#Urv,
Yeah man! I'll give the bewdas a break, and then we will do this poll. :D

//Aur apna favorite movie bata do Bhai. Does the movie also involve some Bhai ;)

Hehehe... kada muqabla hai... between Munnabhai and Socha Na Tha. :)

shub said...

I am surprised no one mentioned Munnabhai actually. Or did they?!

Shan said...

Ohhhh nooooo hw i missed this game :(....
my vote goes to Dil Chahta hai :(
nw ve to wait for the 'worst movie ever' poll...

Kanan said...

Sayesha, thank you for the whole list. :) and of course the history of the gold-silver yells. :D

Okay I thought that no matter how many movies you said, only the first one will count, no? :P *runs before another rolled akhbaar comes her way*

Sayesha said...

#Shub,
The person who mentioned Munnabhai also mentioned another movie so his vote was disqualified. :(

#Shan,
//my vote goes to Dil Chahta hai :(

Ooh that would have kicked Swades out of the third rank! :O

//nw ve to wait for the 'worst movie ever' poll...

Hahaha! Yeah the next one will be coming soon! :D

#Kanan,
//Okay I thought that no matter how many movies you said, only the first one will count, no? :P *runs before another rolled akhbaar comes her way*

Nope. I clearly wrote that only comments that name one movie will count. Muahahha! :D
*rolls her newspaper and flings it at the fleeing Kanan*

The Mad Girl said...

Hii Sayesha.:)
I'm a li'l surprised that RDB didn't make it to the top three coz it caused such a huge uproar when it got released. Everyone I knew simply fell in love with the movie. But then I guess Sholay deserves the first position.:)
And I was about to yell GOLD!! suprised at my luck till I read the postscript.:D

GG said...

I was a tad late...but I don't think I cried harder in any movie other than Anjali...that was just so so sad!
