    • vivek says:

      Hazoor, the site does say “Amodini’s Movie Reviews”. This is his list and so it reflect his preference. You may not agree with all of his choices, but that is your prerogative, as is compiling your own list and writing your own reviews..

      • amodini says:

        Vivek,
        Thanks for your reply to Ashutosh and arndutt. You say it well – my opinions are my own, and may not reflect popular sentiment. Minor quibble : I am female so it would be “her” list (and not “his” list).

  65. Ashish Gupta says:

    Hi Amodini
    Needless to say that you really have done a great job by categorizing the movies according to their critics & genres. As we all believe that everyone has his or her own taste & prospective to see things and receive the messages, I would like to bring a bit of variation in this list which is not important to be mentioned here.
    Apart from this, I would like to advice you if you can add one more category i.e., Satire based movies like Oh My God, 3 Idiots. My point here is the movies where protagonist challenges the nonsense customs & definitions which our global society is carrying.
    Last but not the least – I appreciate you for putting this much hard efforts & sharing with the people interested in motion pictures.
    Well done. Keep it up. God bless

    • amodini says:

      Thanks for your feedback. The kind of movies that you are looking for are under the category “social issues” on the right sidebar.

  66. Davis Khaled says:

    Great list of movies, thanks for sharing! Watched most the movies.

  67. Wajid Khan says:

    This is perfect list and what the coincidence that i have seen 90% movies from them ;) because i am the big fan of Bollywood movies..
