Most watched Bollywood film?

Most movies are a pain to sit through, some others are a good one time watch but every once in a while there comes a film that can be watched not once, not twice but many many times. Instantly movies like Sholay, DDLJ, Lagaan, Koi Mil Gaya, Chak De India come to mind..

If you had to make a list of your most watched Bollywood movie ever, which movies would make it to the list and why? Is it due to a particular actor, the songs, the magic moments in the film?

Dont forget to mention the number of times, the particular movie was watched. Submit your most watched movie list below in the comments section.

  • If I post my long list (from 1970 – 2009 April) here, then it will be needed to update to a new website with new domain name…so better I should not post it here

  • The most Indian movies (old) which I watched since I was 14 years old till todate:

    Aradhana ( 9 times), Sangam ( 7 times), Do Raaste ( 7 times) Bobby, Hero & Betaab many times. The reason: just good movies, good scripts, good performances, good songs, good actors)

    Then Shabana Azmi’s movies: Arth, Masoom & Bahavna – watched each 5-6 times since the release date.

    Sharabi & Khuda Ghawa – many times, best of Amitab Bachan

    KKHH, Dil se, Mohabbetain, Deewana, Koyla, Veer Zarah, Kal Ho Na Ho ( each 7 – 8 times) best of Shahrukh.

    Ek Douje Ke Liye ( 6 times) a wonderful romantic movie with very nice songs.

    Dil Chata Hai- 6 times, best of Aamir Khan

    And many movies each watched 3 times but can’t list them down as they’re many.

    But the only 2 movies which I watched in 60 days from the release date were: Aradhana & Rabne Bana de Jodi. I watched Aradhana 9 times in cinema in a month! and then on some video tapes 3 or 4 times.. and Rabne is a new movie.. I watched in 2 months 4 times in cinema and one time on a dvd.. means 5 times so far and it’s a new movie, released on Dec. 2008.. 5 times in 4 months! Time also has to be counted.. how many times we watched any movie and in how many years.. that’s also important.

    If I watched Rabne movie 5 times in 4 months.. so in 10 or 15 coming years ( if I was alive) I might watch it more than 20 times which will score the highest no. of times and the most interesting indian movie so far.

    But there’s also a fact.. what’s interesting for me might not be for others and vice versa, as I was surprised that some of the readers listed down some movies which I consider them the worst in bollywood e.g. Golmaal!!

  • actually the films i have watched many times are mostly amitabh films. not because i want to, but because i grew up around these films. everyone everywhere had amitabh films at thier homes, so i got to see them many times by default. but i do have a few amitabh favourite films in any case, which i love and have watched many many times.

    also, the other thing you must take into consideration is , all of us have certain films on dvds at home. so by default we will obviously watch these films more than others. so the list of films you have watched the most is not necessarily a reflection of the films which are your favourites.

    here is my list anyway:

    1. sholay – probably over 60 times ! reasons: one of my favourite films, first film i ever saw, made me cry, emotional, well made, different, great actors, amjad khan as the immortal gabbar singh. each character well crafted, the film is greatness itself.

    2. muqaddar ka sikandar – about 40 times. reasons: one of my favourite films. excellent. genuine cinematic experience. classic songs. great actor pairings – amitabh/rekha, amitabh/vinod khanna, amjad khan. solid film. meaningful. the song ‘rote huye..’

    3. amar akbar anthony – about 40 times. the best entertainer ever. you can never get bored of watching this film. puts a smile on your face everytime. thoroughly enjoyable. great actors. great songs. an example of popular bollywood.

    4. naseeb – used to watch this film every other day when i was a child. probably watched it over 50 times. again a great entertainer, excellent cast and great songs. bollywood potboiler at its best. as a child i can remeber the songs of this film were really popular everywhere.

    5. tezaab – about 30 times. reasons: a part of my childhood. very first time i developed feelings for a woman – madhuri dixit. i thought she was the most beautiful woman on earth. wanted to marry her. a great entertaining film nevertheless.

    6. disco dancer – about 20 times. reasons: again, a part of my childhood. this film was a rage in those days and mithun chakraborty was a hot actor. girls used to go ga ga over him, and boys used to envy him. he was the coolest and the most modern and fashionable actor in bollywood at the time. more importantly the songs were a rage at the time. people went crazy over the songs. i loved the songs, they were way ahead of the time. the film was also very different and an excellent entertainer.

    7. karma – about 25 times. reasons: another film a part of my childhood. i just loved this film because it was very macho and one of the best action films ever. and it had the then no.1 actor anil kapoor and dilip kumar together.

    8. bhagwaan dada – about 25 times. reasons: i had this film taped for me on vhs, because i loved this film so much. i was a child, but it was the first film i owned on vhs, and i loved the songs so much. more importantly i loved the film because of rajnikants acting. i thought his style was cool. i wanted to be like him. a very good film nonetheless. great songs especially ‘aaya aaya pyar ka zamaana..’

    9. dil – about 30 times. reasons: madhuri dixit. one of the best romantic films ever. and the song ‘mujhe neend na aaye’; my feelings for madhuri grew after watching this film. i was in love.

    10. saajan – about 25 times. reasons: madhuri dixit. a great emotional film. sanjay dutts acting. the songs. this is the only film songs that i have listened to the most. i just love the songs so much, especially ‘mera dil bhi kitna paagal hai,’ and ‘pehli baar mile hain’.

    11. hum aapke hain koun – about 20 times. reasons: i was totally in love with madhuri dixit and had decided to go to bombay and marry her. i had just turned a teenager, so it was possible ! but the film was the most purest form of entertainment i had ever seen. the film made me aware of what life should be all about, and struck a chord in me. i experienced pure love. a great film, and great songs. i went crazy over madhuri dixit and the song ‘didi tera devar deewana’. but this is one of the very best films to come out of bollywood and typifies indian culture and what bollywood should be all about.

    12. laagan – about 15 times. reasons: very well made and very different. technically brilliant and gripping from start to finish. a true cinematic experience. excellent film.

    13. kabhi haan kabhi naan – about 15 times. reasons: very simple film, nice songs, very pure and innocent. you forget about the real world and experience simple human interactions and innocence and entertainment in one go. one of my best shah rukh khan films ever. it may not be everyones cup of tea, but i urge everyone to watch it from start to finish. you will love it. and the song ‘deewana dil deewana..’

    14. dil to pagal hai – about 15 times. reasons: madhuri dixit, great film , very well made. excellent songs. the pairing of madhuri dixit and shah rukh khan. reminds me of my college days, when i was the man.

    15. qurbani (feroz khan/zeenat aman) – about 25 times. reasons: wow. this one is a classic. great film. was way ahead of the time. hollywood style. and the song ‘baat ban jaye’.

    16. ishq vishk – about 15 times. reasons: again, an example of innocence and everything that is fun and good. great songs. and oh yes, amrita rao !

    ok. that will do for the time being. iam sure i have missed a few out. oh yes, crap, i forgot amitabhs films ‘don’ and ‘deewar’. must have watched them over 20 times each.

  • I love reading your comments Spiderman. So informative and always a great read, thanks.

    Talking of BIG B films. I have seen Don so many times, just love Bachchan’s acting as Vijay. If you compare that to SRK in the new Don, it just shows how much a better actor Bachchan really was.

    Anand is one other Rajesh – Amitabh movie I loved. So so many times I have watched it.

  • SUNIEL, i agree with you. anand is a brilliant film, and one of my favourites too. the pairing of rajesh khanna and amitabh was dynamite, and worked very well. probably one of the most meaningful films ever in bollywood. extremely sensitive. and the songs were brilliant too, especially ‘kahin door jab din dal jaye…’ wow ! what a song. brings out the human side in you.

    i have seen this film a few times too.

    another one of my favourite films i have seen a few times is jo jeeta wohi sikander. also, the shah rukh khan film baadshah. this one is a very underrated film and is not given enough credit. if you watch the film from start to finish, you will realise it is one of the best shah rukh khan comedies. and a very funny and entertaining film. although it flopped at the box office (cant see why though), it really is a very good comedy. probably shah rukh khans best comedy film ever. everyone should watch it.

    out of the recent releases, i have watched chandni chowk to china and ghajini the most. for some reason i find chandni chowk to china entertaining, bar a few scenes.

    anyway, from all of the above comments, it appears the unanimous decision for the most watched film goes to:

    hum aapke hai koun !

  • Jodha Akbar–many times,once every two weeks
    Koi milgaya–once a month
    Fanaa –many times

    I watch them for Hrithik Roshan’s superb acting and the movie itself, excellent direction and music.

    Fanaa for the stars and the music.

  • 1) Namaste london more than 40 times.
