    main ummeed kar raha tha ki aap kaunsi filmein dekhi jaani chchiye ispar bhi prakash dalenge. regional cinema main hamari gati thodi kam hai. if someone from that region can recommend the ‘must watch’ from this long list then that would be best. same applicable to the non-feature list.

    Hi mihir.. Adaminte Makan Abu, Malayalam Film that won the best feature film is a must watch..!! followed by Aadukalam.. a tamil film which has won the maximum award at the awards..thoda sufism mn interest hai to Moner Manush should be your choice..! In marathi.. Champions is good… and in the non feature category.. do not miss Love in India and Leaving Home.. two wonderful films that Indian audience needs to see…!!
