Does anyone have any recommendations for good movies starring hrithik roshan? Ive just seen jodhaa akbar which was great....and kites, which wasnt so much. I think he can be a very subtle wonderful actor...does it depend on the director?

In the late winter I saw Agneepath in Kolkata. I loved it! The general consensus among my discerning friends was less positive- it seems the 1990 version (with the biggest star ever Amitabh Bachchan) is too loved to be passed over. However, it was a hit with a Hollywood-sized budget and Roshan is wonderful.

Agneepath of 2012 starts as an exciting historical drama, but ends up more typically Bollywood. There are great songs and I liked all the main characters.

I agree he was fantastic in Jodhaa Akbar. I have to recommend one of my favourite movies, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, which is VERY bollywood (different from Jodhaa Akbar) but also very fun. Lots of drama, dancing, etc. Hrithik is not the star of the movie (it also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh), but plays a major, important role.

I've also heard good things about Fiza, but haven't seen it.

For the love of God please don't try watching either of the Dhoom movies.

I'm not a Bollywood fan in the least, so take this with a grain of salt, but I've heard good things about Zindagi Na Mile Dobara. Hrithik is one of three male leads.

agneepath (2012 remake) gets a thumbs down from me. except for the item number chikni chameli. great song, cool video.

go see koi mil gaya if you want more range from mr. roshan.

yawper's suggestions are great too!

He was amazing in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Kaho Na Pyaar He was his first.

I'd recommend three:
- Lakshya
- Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
- Fiza
