From Masaan To Stanley Ka Dabba: These Bollywood Movies Deserved More Credit

Movies are something that we all love to watch and it’s the greatest source of entertainment, but quite often we compare our Bollywood movies to that of Hollywood. Accepted Hollywood movies are more logical than ours but then again there are few which were exceptional with great storyline as well as the acting was brilliant. But we fail to notice such movies which are pure gem and they just miss the limelight while movies like ‘Housefull 3’, ‘Hero’, etc. get crores of views which obviously they never deserved. If you too got blinded by the bling that some movies offered, covering garbage in the garb of gold sheet, and missed some magical movies in the process, here we are listing those beautiful movies. Compared to other so called ‘blockbuster movies’, these did not earn much  credit.

Listed below are few Bollywood movies that deserved way more credit:
