High five Cinema

High five



This Tamil gangster film has a superb performance by Kamal Haasan, backed by a terrific script. I consider Kamal’s acting in this film a text book lesson in acting.


This 1971 film was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Besides a once-in-a-lifetime performance by Rajesh Khanna as a cancer patient, the film has great dialogues, and is a personal favourite.

Namak Haram

Superstars Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachhan gave an action packed performances in this film also directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee in 1973. Best Rajesh-Kishore-RD Burman work is in this film.

Where Eagles Dare

A classic 1968 II World War action film, based on the novel by the same title. The film was made memorable by iconic Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood leading the way.


A near perfect script if there was one in Malayalam films, with stellar performances by Mohanlal and all the entire cast. A thriller remarable for its screenplay, performance and direction.
