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.
"This list of films is supposed to be a representative sample of the kinds of films that are produced and consumed in South Asia and elsewhere. It formed part of bfi's South Asian Cinema 2002 programme designed to present to the British public for the first time the immense diversity of South Asian cinema."
This is the list that was compiled by experts. BFI also ran a [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/bfi+south+asian+top+50+-+readers+poll/sienel/]user poll[/url].
The list is divided into 5 sections:
41-50: Sri Lankan
