You forgot the biggest. It was nominated for the Oscars, but then it didn't go ahead and win anything since Hollywood saw the threat they would have from Ranbir's astonishing talent. I think this movie is the same league as a Pyaasa or Kaagaz ke Phool or Awara or any Dilip Kumar classic.

Its content is studied in film courses and Ranbir's acting is now a learning module for budding actors.
