“Best Hindi Movies Of All Time: Simple Yet Relatable” I know it looks like a superficial statement because certain movies today are just the opposite of that. And, just to give the plot a twist, they just move away from the real story.
Aren’t you tired of the Bollywood movies today being soo full of overhyped stunts and VFX? Or after watching a movie you go into the trance think “can this ever happen in real life? No, then why do they even show it?”
Because today most of the movies just focus on their box office collection than on the story and execution. Some movies go soo out of the way that they forget that the hero they projected is not an alien.
Jokes apart but when we say Best Hindi movies it simply means uncomplicated, every day and relateable stories. And for that, we do have to acknowledge the stories from the ’80s. They were just amazing, mesmerizing, and original.
The plot focused on everyday life which showcased their simplicity, the true picture of what is happening in society. And, they didn’t require VFX as well. Because they considered the main lead (hero) to be a human (not someone who has to fall down and fly from the 1000ft building to save the girl).
The movies by Amol Palekar are of such appreciations. His movies are about day-to-day situations like winning a girl’s heart, struggling to get a job, a love triangle, or an extramarital affair. They will make you chuckle and sympathize with the characters at the same time. His movies are worth celebrating.
And trust me the stories of his movies are so worth it that they are even being remade today!
So, let relive the Simplicity and Beauty of Amol Palekar movies
