BONAFIDE BOSS ⭐️,

My vote:
Padmaavat (2018)

I'm surprised no one commented on this poll.

Damn! You've seen 'Padmaavat'?

I'm surprised by that, xD.

Did you watch it in Hindi (with subtitles) or a dubbed version?

BONAFIDE BOSS ⭐️,

Clarification: I have not seen any of the films on this list. Padmaavat (2018) sounded like the most interesting film on the list.

Oh, R.I.P :(

If you ever get time, you should watch Hindi-language films.

Especially, Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), if you haven't seen it already. It's one of the best films of all time, in my opinion.

Martin Scorsese also praised it by sending a letter to the director.

Added the first three films.

I've decided not to include films set in multiple time periods (or as commonly known in India, "punar janam" films).

Thank you for your suggestions. <3
