Meghe Dhaka Tara, a 1960 Ritwik Ghatak production, came in second, followed by Bhuvan Shome, a Mrinal Sen production (1969). The top 10 films in the history of Indian cinema, in all its languages, are listed in a list compiled by FIPRESCI titled "All Time Ten Best Indian Films."
According to a press statement from FIPRESCI-India, 30 members participated in the ballot, which was done in secret.
The remaining top 10 were dominated by directors associated with India's alternative film movement, which prioritised social unrest and politics over popular entertainment.
The 1975 film Sholay starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Amjad Khan, Hema Malini, and Jaya Bachchan has also been ranked as the tenth finest Indian film of all time.
