My Top 100 Movies (Updated On October 2018)

Hotel Rwanda (2004)

Cover: Hotel Rwanda (2004)

I’ll share the reviews separately when I get time. Guru (1997) and Amma Ariyan (1986) are probably the only Malayalam films I genuinely love. Guru’s story is influenced by HG Wells’ short story, The Country of the Blind. Amma Ariyan is more like a low-budget, black and white 2001 with several layers of meaning.

Without further ado, here’s the list:
