The face of Bollywood, over the years, has undergone a radical change. The change has been definite but not sudden. Over the years several films, released at different junctures, and changed the topography of Bollywood. It is this trajectory that acclaimed critic Shubhra Gupta pens down in her 2016 book, 50 Films That Changed Bollywood, published by Harper Collins. As the name suggests, the book traces those films which the Indian Express film critic feels changed the language of Bollywood in the last two decades. Out of these 50 films, if there are 10 films that significantly changed Bollywood, and films that you must watch then
here is Gupta's list.
