Many will disagree but Ram Gopal Varma aka RGV is one of the few original filmmakers of Indian cinema. The eccentric director has always set out to achieve something new which movie and has succeeded more often than not.

Although the recent RGV movies feel like the director is stuck in a rut of creator's block, not long ago he made some fantastic movies which were greatly appreciated by the audience and critics alike. So here are 8 best Bollywood movies by Ram Gopal Varma -

Kaun - Definitely one of the best movies of RGV, Kaun was a psychological thriller, a woman who is alone at home finds the doorbell ringing and a stranger pleads to enter her home. A dangerous game of cat and mouse, the movie is an intelligent, unconventional and never shies away from toying with the audience's mind.

Raat - Raat is inspired by The Exorcist, the film is a story of a family the move to a new house and their daughter gets possessed. They seek help from a priest to get everything back to normal. The film was a good relief from Ramsay brother's B-Grade Horror Movies. It was a bilingual film and was shot simultaneously in Telugu and Hindi.

Satya - Considered one of the best gangster movie made in Bollywood, a tale of a common man who comes to Mumbai for employment, but due to bad circumstances, he becomes an infamous Mumbai gangster. Although J.D Chakravarthy was in the lead role of Satya, Manoj Bajpai as Bhiku Mathre was exceptional. The movie opened the doors of Bollywood to Manoj Bajpai as the actor started getting more work in Hindi film industry.

Rangeela - Starring Urmila Matondkar, Aamir Khan, and Jackie Shroff, Rangeela was a story about a regular guy of Mumbai, who falls in love with his best friend as both are drawn to the film industry, Mili is working as extras in films while Munna making his living by selling movie tickets in black. Their life takes turn when a well-known actor Raj Kamal notices Mili's work and they start working together, but Munna is not ready for this change.

Shiva - Shiva is the remake of RGV's debut film Siva, in both films Nagarjuna was in the lead role. Both Hindi and Telugu films were blockbusters and we still remember that scene, in which Shiva took the cycle chain and hit the rowdy students.

Bhoot - When the film released in 2003 it added fuel to the newly revived trend of making horror films and the set the bar high for future filmmakers. A young married couple sets up a home in their new apartment but soon is plagued by a strange presence around them. Urmila Matondkar gave her career-best performance and supported wonderfully by Ajay Devgn and Fardeen Khan.

Company - A fictionalized account of Indian mafia organization D - Company - gave a new lease of life to RGV's career in the early 2000s. Fuelled by superlative performances from its cast, this twisted tale of power hierarchy proved to be a defining film in the director's career. Vivek Oberoi made a solid debut with ‘Company' and became the talk of the town.

Sarkar - Inspired by The Godfather, Sarkar was political drama starring Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif & Kay Kay Menon. The movie was loved by critics and audience for its powerful dialogues and brilliant performances.
