Arth was a film that was way ahead of its time. Yes, it dealt with extra-marital affairs, but it was also one of the few films in Bollywood that never showed the ‘other woman’ as a one-dimensional vamp. This movie we can not forget due to those Jagjit Singh gems, Tum Itna Jo Muskura Rahe Ho and Jhuki Jhuki Si Nazar.

Sanjay Dutt joins hands again with Mahesh Bhatt, in this romanticised version of Taxi Driver. Sanjay Dutt plays a taxi driver who rescues a girl (Pooja Bhatt) sold into prostitution, from clutches of a ruthless pimp, Maharani, but he loses his dear friends and nearly his life in the process.

The movie that made Bollywood recognize the talents of a maverick called Mahesh Bhatt. Anupam Kher, in perhaps one of his finest performances of his career. The film was India’s official entry to the Oscars, while Anupam Kher got the Filmfare award for the Best Actor.

Ajay Devgn got his first National award for this film. The movie is all about the communal harmony and how certain forces try to divide us on the basis of religions. Ajay Devgn has performed stunning role. While Ajay Devgn certainly deserved the honour, the film should be watched for the poignant performances of Pooja Bhatt, in her career-best role, and Kunal Kemmu, who outshines the rest of the cast easily.
DIL HAI KI MANTA NAI

Probably, one of Mahesh Bhatt’s lightest films. DHKMN is the Hindi remake of It Happened One Night. Pooja Bhatt plays a dumb rich heiress who runs away from her father to marry her snooty boyfriend. On the way, she meets Raghu (Aamir Khan), a down-on-luck journalist who decides to tag along with her to get some scoop. DHKMN is one of the finest romantic comedies made in Bollywood.

It’s really hard to believe that Mahesh Bhatt could make such a light entertainer like HHRPK. HHRPK is one of the most positive films ever to be made in our country, and even after more than 20 years, the film still manages to weave its magic over us.
