Ankahee - the Unspoken

I always thought that Hollywood movies are far better then Bollywood movies. But I think I always forget that there are some gems which go unnoticed.. one of them is Ankahee (1985), which I watched today. It is such a beautiful piece of art.. fantastic acting and dialogues to go with a beautiful story. The song Thumak Thumak Pad was my favorite since the time I came across it for the first time (that was when Pt. Bhimsen Joshi passed away and I was going through his biography). Back then I never realised that the song would be from such an amazing movie.

In last week I have watched few other classic movies which I found literally wowww.. like Sooraj ka saatwan ghoda, Balika Badhu... and now many more are lined up.. like Paromitar ek din, Ek Doctor ki Maut... 

While I was reading about 100 years of Indian cinema in an TOI article, I was thinking there is also a parallel cinema which is unheard and unspoken of.

Suggestions for similar movies are welcome :)
