8 Movies From 1997 That Will Make You Wonder What Bollywood Is Up To In 2017

1997 was a great year for Bollywood. It’s 2017, we’re not so happy about.

We rewind 2 decades back and show you how brilliant Bollywood was back then. We know that times have changed but Bollywood gave us some fine films that year. This year, the audience has mostly been disappointed. Superstars, big budgets, and no script.

No, it hasn’t been all bad with movies like Lipstick Under My Burkha, Trapped, and Hindi Medium. We’re glad that such kind of content is finally getting a platform. Two decades ago, these 8 movies were the reason why we loved Bollywood.

#1 Gupt


No, ‘Duniya Haseeno Ka Mela Hai’ wasn’t the only amazing thing this movie gave us. Gupt is an outstanding thriller and knows how to grab attention as well as sustain it. Kajol is the killer.

 #2 Pardes


We’re not sure whether we’ll ever get tired of songs like ‘Dil Deewana’ or ‘Meri Mehbooba’. There was some extra melodrama in the movie but it was still watchable. Some mind blowing performances and songs.

#3 Judwaa


Yes, we know it’s coming back this year. 90’s Salman < Today’s Salman. The humor was clean and ‘Oonchi Hai Building’ can still make us groove.

#4 Chachi 420

This ‘Doubtfire’ inspired movie had some brilliant actors from Kamal Hasan to Om Puri. If you haven’t watched it yet, we suggest you should.

#5 Dil Toh Pagal Hai


We still can’t believe Akshay Kumar did that. The love triangle/square is a good musical and doesn’t put you to sleep.

#6 Border


We’re just going to leave this here.

#7 Yes Boss


There’s no movie that can come near this one till date. There is no doubt that 1997 was the year of Shah Rukh Khan.

#8 Ishq


The ‘Rama Rama’ scene from this movie can still make you laugh. Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgn deliver some bromance and comic timing.
