None of the three Indian films I have seen is on the list. I would choose Lagaan as watching the Oscar nominated film would be my top priority.

I haven't gotten around to seeing any of these yet, and only a few of them are on any of my watch lists. I'm surprised that Salaam Bombay! didn't make the Top 35.

Thanks for pointing that out.

At the time of making the list, I was giving priority to the 'IMDb Top 250 Indian Movie' list (https://www.imdb.com/india/top-rated-indian-movies/).

Surprisingly, the list does not include 'Salaam Bombay'.

I have added it in my list now.

Hi, Dibyayan.

Voted for 'Dangal'. It's pretty cool !  I like it very much. Aamir Khan is a wonderful
philantropical actor and moviemaker - he is much more favorite to me as Hrithik Roshan or
Shah Rukh Khan. I can see all of his movies and I admire his work.
I haven't seen many movies from the list, maybe 10 or so, but I feel good for 'Dangal'.
I guess you know I'm from Germany. In Germany we are very spoiled about best
dubbing in the world. We have a very big voice-actor industry, because Germans all
want to see best dubbing in forreign movies. So am I.

I'm a little sad, because so less indian movies are dubbed for Germany. I watch them mostly on Hindi with english subtitles and sometimes - while watching - I have to take out the translator to understand, what  the content might be. Maybe this will be better some day. Till then I take my translator to watch it. :D
