I wasn’t sure exactly since when my obsession towards movies had started. But as far as I can recollect it was probably around my tenth standard that I began to love movies like anything. Since then I have managed to watch almost every single movie of my favourite stars in Kollywood,Bollywood as well as Hollywood.
When the broadband internet began its launch in the city, I was the first ones to sign up and began to download international movies in Italian, Japanese, Korean and even French movies. This was when I discovered the world of International cinema at its best. Simple low budget Korean movies actually put the high budget bollywood movies to shame
So if I were to list down the top 10 movies that really impacted me as a movie buff , here it goes
- The Godfather : Of course, ranked # 2 in the IMDB Top 250 list, this is one of the most brilliant work of art by Francis Ford Coppola . A mafia thriller based on a book in the same name, this is a classic and an example of how a movie should be made for all budding film makers
- Shawshank Redemption : The best ever prison-break movie made, Shawshank rates high on all aspects including story, direction and acting. It has even achieved a cult status among its fans who constantly debate about the film
- Schindler’s List : One of the best movies by Steven Spielberg, this is a classic WWII movie based out of Germany and portrays the history of Oscar Schindler, a German who was responsible in saving thousands of lives of Jews
- Devotion of Suspect X : A brilliant Korean murder mystery , this movie makes you sit at the edge of the seat and keeps you guessing till the end . A well crafted thriller, this is a great starting point for anyone who wants to watch Korean movies
- 12 Angry Men : A movie shot completely inside a courtroom , it shows how a 12 member jury debates, argues and finally decides on a very important court case. A classic and a must watch for all you courtroom drama fans
- Man from Earth : Started off like a simple documentary movie, this movie again shot entirely inside a house shows a discussion of a group of people discussing their history . One man in particular has a very strange and unbelievable history while the other tries to disprove him. Strangely not very popular among all, this fantastic movie aided by its excellent script and writing can be definitely one among my top 10!
- Kannathil Muthamittal : One of Mani Rathnam’s best movie, Kannathil Muthamittal discusses the beauty of a relationship between a small girl and her parents. This movie shot in the war zone of Sri Lanka ranks very high primarily due to its picturization and some amazing songs by A.R.Rahman

- Inception : Christopher Nolan’s most brilliant film on dreams till date, this is a movie that’s too complex to understand the first time. It has a multiple layered reality within itself and truly warrants a applause for even dared to make such an outstanding movie
- Interstellar : A movie about space travel that introduces new concepts and laws in physics, space time, there are no words to describe this magnificent piece of a film that Nolan has created. One must have extraordinary levels of talent to even visualize such a fantastic movie.
