Here is a list of 10 Bollywood movies that were not commercial hits but were greatly appreciated by critiques and those who happened to watch them.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to see people only tend to watch the mainstream masala Bollywood movies while there are so tons of beautiful movies that never get watched by the common masses. We found out that one of the reasons why these underrated movies don’t hit the top of the screen chart is due to the time spent on post-production. Yes, it is the sad truth, nowadays it’s not the story or acting that makes a movie hit or super hit but the amount of time or budget spent on promotions that result in the movie being a success.
As a huge fan of underrated movies, I was lucky enough to discover some of the great films of Bollywood that many haven’t yet heard of. So for you people I have compiled a list of movies which you should definitely watch.
