As Samurai said, this thread discusses all language movies.

But I think the above set of movies are better off in the regional movies thread. I dont these are classics in any sense - watchable movies, but rather potboilers with stereotyped characters

Movies by Bharathan, Padmarajan would be apt for this thread. Just my humble opinion

Sorry guys if I hurt your sentiments. Please don't be so touchy. One person's classic might be another person's potboiler. According to me a classic movie is one which no matter how many times one watches its not enough.

what made you think I was touchy I was not the producer/director of these movies. I just didn't feel this would compare well with movies like Tazhvaram, Nombarathy Poovu, Namukku Parkan Munthiri Thoppukal etc by the above directors (Am not talking about pseudo or formula art movies by some malayalam directors)

btw, has anyone watched Sandhya raagam by Balu Mahendra? Extremely sensitive movie making and much much better movie compared to his more aclaimed 'Veedu' or the horribly melodramatic 'Moonram Pirai' (Sadma)

That will make the entire thread very subjective and open a can of worms. Let's keep some objectivity and suggest movies that have achieved national or international acclaim/award.

I am very sorry sir. I have limited knowledge of world movies and listed some movies which are classics in their own right. One thing I want to emphasize is that India is a vast country with each state the size of any European country. And just like these European country produces movies each state in india makes its own kind of films. Its not possible that most of these regional films get national attention. But the native of that particular state knows the impact the movie has created. So my intention was to list out such movies. A classic is a classic irrespective of the language of the movie. I specifically didn't include it in the Regional movies thread since these are not run of the mill movies and still has a place in the heart of all malayalees. That's what a classic means to me. Thanks.

Watched "tropa de elite 1 & 2" . Brazilian movies on how the drug trade works in Rio and BOPA(special police force) to counter drug trade. Part 1 is about training and working of BOPA mostly whereas part 2 is about survivol in world full of corruption and how corrupt find new ways to survive when attacked.
Beautiful movies which are truly engaging and relevant to all societies.
