15. Zanjeer (1973) – Prakash Mehra. 8.4/10.

Summary: Tigers in a radical game of justice and esoterica

This hard-hitting film is my favourite for many reasons: -powerful performance by amitabh (laughs twice in the movie) -train murder scene which deserves putting Prakash Mehra up there with the all time director greats. Also Mehra has a penchant for location shooting and you get to see some of the dark sides of the mumbai locale. -esoteric motifs and hints strewn all over the movie('Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool') -Teja the bad guy is convincingly portrayed by Ajit -The unending quest for justice and it's bittersweet resolutions -The theme of love vs. revenge All these were amplified in Mehra's second classic 'Muqaddar ka Sikandar' In short it is rewarding viewing!

17. Anamika (1973) Directed by Raghunath Jhalani7.9/10

A woman-hating writer rescues a young woman lying injured on the road. When she regains consciousness, she insists that she is his wife. His uncle and the family doctor persuade him to humor her until they find a solution to the problem. In the process, he falls in love with her and calls her Anamika (girl without a name). But as unexpectedly as she had come into his life, just as unexpectedly, she vanishes one night. He is despondent. Then one night at a party, he meets her again, but she refuses to recognize him.

18. Abhimaan (1973) – Di. – H.M.

R - 8.9/10 (109 votes)

Subeer Kumar (Amitabh) is well on his way to becoming India's top pop singer. He has no intention of getting married, but when he goes to visit his Durga Mausi (Mausi=mother's sister), he falls in love with religious, simple Uma, by whose voice he's enchanted. He marries her and returns to Bombay where he announces that he will never sing without Uma again. However, Subeer encourages Uma to sing alone and when her popularity is soon greater than his own, the seed of jealousy begins to grow... The major difference between Uma and Subeer is that she sings for herself, whereas he sings for the public. It is the difference between geet and sangeet. This is the root of the thing that later causes problems, and based on which the movie is named.

19. Kora Kagaz (1974) - Directed by Anil Ganguly

20. Sholay (1975) – Ramesh Sippy – 7.4 / 10 (1423 votes).

Two convicts and small time crooks (Amitabh and Dharmendra) are picked by Thakur (Sanjeev Kumar), a former police officer, to seek vengeance on the dangerous bandit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan) because he killed all of Thakur's family (except a daughter-in-law) and maimed Thakur for life.This was a result of an earlier incident in which Thakur -- acting as a police officer -- had captured Gabbar and helped in his conviction in the court. Gabbar managed to escape and wreaked havoc in Thakur's life. Now Thakur seeks the help of these two crooks to get Gabbar. The ensuing action makes for one of the most exciting Indian movies made to date.

Summary written by Chetan Ahuja {}

Thakur Baldev Singh (Sanjeev Kumar) seeks to avenge the cold-blooded massacre of his family at the hands of notorious bandit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan). Since he is unable to do so on his own, he recruits Veeru (Dharmendra) and Jaidev (Amitabh Bachchan). Both are jailbirds and have in and out of various jails. They are reportedly known to carry out any work provided the compensation is right. Both agree to capture Gabbar Singh live and hand him over to Baldev Singh. Things do not go as planned. Veeru falls for the local horse carriage driver Basanti (Hema Malini); and Jai starts to have romantic feelings for Baldev Singh's widowed daughter-in-law, Radha (Jaya Bhaduri). To make matters worse, Gabbar has sworn to kill both Jai and Veeru, and abducts Basanti.

21. Mili (1975) - Directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee7.8/10 (40 votes).

Summary: See Amitabh & jaya together

Very simple story yet effective. Why? cause this movie had sincere direction, acting and music in it. Amitabh is not the usual angry young man nor is Jaya in her usually serious role; yet they have given commendable performances. The music is soothing almost therapeutic especially the number "Aaye Tum Yaad Mujhe, Gaane lagi har Dhadkan . ." sung by Kishore Kumar.

Two Thumbs Up

Summary: This is called positive attitude

I have never seen a perfect and so real end to a movie. This is one movie that always gives me courage and optimism in life, whenever I think about it. It has a very simple story stated without any unnecessary sentimentalisations or overemotionalisations but still leaves an impact on oneself. I think its a must see for everybody as it is one movie which shows how important it is to be HOPEFUL in life.

22. Chupke Chupke (1975) – Di. - H.M.

R – 7.9 / 10 (73 votes). Raghav brags that he can smell a rat or an impersonator automatically, and Dr. Parimal Tripathi decides to take him on - result: funny family slapstick comedy, with a dose of pure Hindi and Urdu thrown in, especially the dialogue delivery by Om Prakash, Dharmendra, and Amitabh Bachchan. Notable songs are :Sare ga ma, ma sa re ga ma...."; "Ab ke sajan sawan me, aag lagegi badan mein, ghata barshegi, magar tarsegi nazar, mil na sakenghe do mahn ek hi aagan mein..."; "Chupke chupke chal di purvaiya, basuri bajaike raas rachaye daiya re daiya, chupke...".
