Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learnt to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)

Stanley Kubrick managed to tickle the audience and also worry them a fair bit with his nuclear armageddon film.

Heat (1995)

Michael Mann's cops-and-robbers film was equal parts a crime film, a bombastic yet realistic actioner, and a hardcore drama that nailed every single element of each genre.

Hot Fuzz (2007)

The second instalment of Edgar Wright's Three Cornettos Trilogy was a spin on and a tribute to action comedies, and acquitted himself admirably on both fronts.

Chak De! India (2007)

Shimit Amin brought together high-stakes human drama and the natural high-stakes of international sport in this underdog story headlined by Shah Rukh Khan.

La La Land (2016)

While the Hollywood musical has always gone hand-in-hand with romance, no one had done it quite as stylishly as Damien Chazelle with La La Land.

Andhadhun (2018)

Sriram Raghavan's film about the escapades of a pretend-blind pianist and a lustful murderess was as thrilling as it was bleaky, and sometimes quite sunnily, funny.

Sonchiriya (2019)

Abhishek Chaubey's blood-and-guts take on the rebels of the Chambal ravines married philosophical drama with the best traditions of the classic American Western to produce a wholly original, searing film.
