1. 'Amar Akbar Anthony'
Directed by Manmohan Desai, 'Amar Akbar Anthony' is the baap of all feel-good movies. A genre-defining pop movie, it continues to inspire escapist cinema in India. 'AAA' gave Manmohan Desai the courage to conceive and execute even more outlandish movie tales such as 'Naseeb', 'Coolie' and 'Mard'. He went on to make "anhoni ko honi" and "honi ko anhoni".
