    Good choices except for Yuva. I think TLOBS would probably have been a better choice.

    They are talking about “Gandhigiri” implying Lage Raho Munna Bhai but have picture from Munna Bhai M.B.B.S

      TLOBS is surely a better choice than Yuva.

        yes good choices.TLOBS was surely very good but some were not happy with the depiction of Mahatama Gandhi in the film.

    among the list, swades,RDB and lakshya also come in the cult category.These films have small but dedicated following.TLOBS is also cult,though not in the list.LRMB,lagaan,CDI are universally liked films.
