200 Greatest Bollywood Films of the 2000s

Since the year 2000 Bollywood has taken movie making to a new level. Here’s a showcase of the best Bollywood films of the 2000s.

Ever since it’s early days the Hindi film industry has been constantly reinventing itself. Every decade in Bollywood is notable for infusing new sensibilities in films. Towards the end of the 90s, a new breed of directors put forth their ideas thereby paving the way for new genres in films. While song and dance routines have been always popular in Hindi films, the start of the new millennium paved forth the way for item songs and item girls.

Since the year 2000, every commercial movie has an item song that is aesthetically embellished in a film as entertainment. Well, in the true sense movie making has changed dramatically since the year 2000. While big budgets have gotten bigger in the new millennium, a number of new directors have gone onto to make a big splash with small budget films.

The new crop of directors in the Hindi film industry say it as it is with their films.

Since the year 2000 many directors have touched upon women oriented issues which in previous years failed to see light. Also, art cinema and parallel cinema has begun to find a large audience in urban cities since the new millennium. Many film directors are debuting with non commercial movie releases thereby bringing a fresh wave of inspirational cinema in India. Also, the type of songs included in Hindi films has changed a great deal. New music directors are able to work with talented young singers… thanks to the numerous singing talent shows on National television.

Aside from romantic films and comedy films, the drama genre has become hugely popular in the 2000s. In present times actors are proving their mettle by doing a variety of different roles in various movie genres. The rise of multiplexes since 2000 has contributed in a big way towards box office collections on weekends. There has been a paradigm shift since the new millennium in Bollywood. Films in the Hindi film industry are getting meaningful and the themes are purposeful and bold. Also, in recent years Bollywood films have garnered a cult following in different parts of the world. In this ever changing scenario Bollywood will only get better.

The space below showcases a comprehensive list of the best Bollywood films of the 2000s. Also mentioned is the year of release.
