Anupama Chopra’s 100 favourite films!


Book title: 100 Films To See before You Die

Films educe emotions like nothing else. Thanks to them, we’ve experienced all shades of human emotions – joy, fear, anger, surprise, sadness, trust and anticipation, in a mere span of two-and-a-half-hours. If watching Rajesh Khanna die in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Anand’ made us cry, Kundan Shah’s ‘Jaane Bhi DoYaaro’ had us in splits. If Om Puri and Shabana Azmi starrer ‘Arth’ raised evocative questions about women’s role in the society, Ramesh Sippy’s ensemble cast in ‘Sholay’ ensured wholesome cinematic entertainment. And when films are the cynosure of all attention, it’s only fair to credit the critic who painstakingly sits through them every Friday to rate a film good, bad or okay.
