The Hindi Film Industry has provided us with some amazing gems that immortalize the art that is Indian cinema. But sadly, sometimes the timing of these films does not match with the era it gets released in and often ends up misunderstood or unappreciated.


These films may end up failing at the box office at the time of their release but eventually gain cult status in the years that follow. So here is a list of 5 amazing films that Bollywood has produced but was way ahead of their time.


No Smoking - The movie did not work not because it was boring but because it was a difficult movie to process. This movie is an invitation to explore the thin line between reality and illusion. However, No Smoking comes across as a piece of art that offers something new with each viewing.


Ek Doctor Ki Maut - The story revolves around a doctor who devises a vaccine for leprosy which boils down to his fight against the establishment. Its brilliant performances and subtlety make this a must watch for all film buffs. Patience isn't a thing associated with Bollywood of the '90s and that's exactly why this movie would do better today.

Suraj Ka Satvan Ghoda - The movie which is based on the same title, is arguably Shyam Benegal's most accomplished film till date. The plot revolves around Manek Mulla narrating his love affair with three different women. Considering it released as Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, Suraj Ka Saatvan Ghoda never received the recognition it deserved.

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro - Thanks to pop culture, the Satish Kaushik, Naseeruddin Shah, and Om Puri starrer is now a movie that generates collective gasps if someone claims to not have seen it. This film finds its place on this list because it wasn't always the cult movie it is today, mostly because the concept of satire didn't exist in Indian minds in the '80s.

Monsoon Wedding - Mira Nair's insight into the big fat Indian wedding coupled with a brilliant execution of the theme of child abuse was, unfortunately, unable to stir up a conversation. Maybe now is the time.
