Monochrome movies have a charm of their own. If a filmmaker decides to shoot his movie in black and white, they are trying to achieve a sense of timelessness through their frames.

Schindler’s List is the most favourite movie of mine. It changed the world and it changed me as a person. The dark times of the holocaust needed to be presented in front of the world in the most truthful way. This film can make stones cry.
Roma is one of the best shot movies of the modern era. Each and every frame speaks to you. The movie is so sentimental and raw, that you cannot take your eyes off the screen. Roma is a movie about mothers, I think it is enough to watch it.
12 Angry Men
One of the finest scripts the world has ever seen. It can be turned into a play so effortlessly. A teenager is accused of murdering his father. The thread of his life is in the hands of 12 Jury members. 11 of them think he is guilty, rest you can learn when you watch the film.
The Artist has a special place in my heart. This brilliant movie is a silent film. Can you imagine a 2011 movie, which is silent? It created a huge buzz at the Oscars and is quite an emotional journey.
A mixture of stories which will make the devil smile. A dark movie which is reflected by a brilliant story and equally brilliant performances. Sin City will take you to places you’ve never dreamed of. Brutal, bloody, and shot in black and white. Sin City will satiate your thirst for a thriller.
