This is a retrospective of 50 path-breaking Hindi films made between the late 60s and mid-90s, when parallel cinema reigned in India. There is no single reason for selecting these 50 films – the primary criterion was that they were all made without the trappings of mainstream cinema and were driven more by passion than the power of money.

Meet The Author

Parallel cinema sought to be different from the mainstream, possibly as a means of re-inventing what cinema might be. The audience from the developing middle class welcomed these films as a reflection of their life, finding that the films closely mimicked their reality.

So, here is a retrospective of 50 path-breaking Hindi films made between the late 60s and mid-90s, when parallel cinema reigned in India. There is no single reason for selecting these 50 films – the primary criterion was that they were all made without the trappings of mainstream cinema and were driven more by passion than the power of money.

I hope this retrospective induces readers to rediscover these pearls of an unparalleled phase of Indian cinema.
