This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
Written by Rajadhyaksha (senior fellow, Centre for the Study of Culture and Society, Bangalore) and Willemen (critical studies, Napier Univ., Edinburgh), this is a one-stop reference book on Indian cinema. Encompassing films in the major Indian languages, this revised edition (originally published in 1994 and updated to 1995) contains entries on directors, stars, producers, writers, and composers and lists birth and death dates, background information, and filmography. A chronological listing of films from 1912 onwards--complete with cast, credits, and plot synopses--is also provided; and black-and-white photographs appear throughout. In addition, a time line chronicles major milestones in Indian cinema, and a chart displays film statistics on both sound and silent films. An extensive bibliography and a name and film index rounds the volume out. No collection on Indian film can afford to be without this book; highly recommended for academic and larger public libraries.

Huge thanks to cronos for importing so many of these movies to ICM which made my job much easier.

Several films have two or more language versions resulting in different movie lengths. These often have separate Imdb IDs.Only one language version of a film exists on this list to not make it too huge and I've tried to select the most known one for this list of all the films in the book. In the sublists for the different languages the movie version for that language is included, which may not be on this list (but is still in the book).
#369: The version of Shakuntala (V. Shantaram) in the book is the 122 minute version made in 1943. As this isn't on imdb, the 76 minute version released in the USA in 1947 is the one on this list.
#442: The book has put up the 1949 version of '42 (A. Chakravarty), however this version was banned in many cities (but not Bombay). Only the edited 1951 version exists on imdb.
#771: While Tero Nadir Parey / Beyond Thirteen Rivers (B. Saha) was made in 1961 it wasn't released until 1969.
#774: The book suggests that Velugu Needalu / Thooya Ullam (A.S. Rao) was released in 1961 however imdb has put 1964 as its release year.
#968: There's limited info on Uyyale / The Swing (N. Lakshminarayan) but the book puts 1969 as the release date for this, this is mistakenly put as 1964 on imdb.
#1580: Mani Kaul's Idiot was made into a 180 minutes film and a 223 minutes mini-series. Only the mini-series exists on imdb.

The 1970s were a decade in the last century. A lot of stuff happened then. There were wars, elections, uprisings, crises and scandals. People were born and died. Sport matches were won and lost. Things were invented. Trends came and went. This is the complete list of the favorite movies made during that decade according to the voters on the iCM forum.
This is a list of science-fiction films organized chronologically. These films have been released to a cinema audience by the commercial film industry and are widely distributed with reviews by reputable critics. This includes silent film–era releases, serial films, and feature-length films. All of the films include core elements of science fiction, but can cross into other genres such as drama, mystery, action, horror, fantasy, and comedy.
Among the listed movies are films that have won motion-picture and science-fiction awards as well as films that have been listed among the worst movies ever made, or have won one or more Golden Raspberry Awards.
This list also contains additional sci-fi films that were missing from wikipedia's list.
This list is useful if looking for a sci-fi film that is on an official icm list. Just sort the list by number of official lists.
1508 movies up to year 1992. Movies from every part of the world selected and analyzed by Jacques Lourcelles, a french cinema critic. A lot of movies (mostly french) you won't find on any other lists
