Classic Movies That You May Not Find On Netflix


Netflix has been booming around the world with new original content. While certain shows from the streaming giant were good quality and critical, the lack of older material has always created a disappointment among movie lovers who want to see classic titles.

There are many times when I am not able to watch movies on Netflix because some films are not available, and we have to download them. Here is the list of great movies that are not on Netflix.

3 Idiots

Through this parody of the societal expectations of the Indian school system, two friends discuss their college days and how their 3rd missing musketeer (Aamir Khan) encouraged them to dream in a strongly conformist culture creatively and individually. This movie is mind-blowing, and I loved it.

Chak De! India

A Muslim hockey captain (Shah Rukh Khan), angered and vilified by the press and the public, aims to save himself by educating the unpolitical Indian women’s hockey team. It is definitely a must-watch for all.

Gangs of Wasseypur

Inspired by Subramaniapuram, the 2008 Tamil film by Anurag Kashyap is the fusion of populism, revenge, and romanticism into the power struggles between three crime families in and around Dhanbad, the epicentre of the coal mafia.

Gully Boy

A young, ambitious street rapper (Ranveer Singh) from the slums of Mumbai would make his vision come true, resolving the problems of his existence and the socioeconomic strata he belongs to. The film not only is amazing but lays down the foundation for hip-hop culture’s existence in India.

Hindi Medium

A couple from Delhi (Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar) from Chandni Chowk are struggling to have her five-year-old daughter in an English-medium kindergarten, harbour dreams of getting her into the Indian “elite” society. This movie is also good. When I have watched this movie, I laughed a lot because the way both the main actors pretending to live a life like lower-class people was so good.
