Rinema, the movie site where users can keep track on what they want to watch and what they have watched has now celebrated 100 years of Indian cinema with an exciting new list. The list was created because of the recent centenary year celebration of India's cinema.

Many sites like to make essential movie lists, but what makes this one particularly interesting is the list was created by Rinema users. These 100 movies were thrown in the list because of how popular they were with Rinema users.

How the list was picked according to the site is like this, the films were selected on the basis of “Rinema Rank” which is similar to IMDB’s weighted average calculation and takes into account both average rating and popularity.

They have this rule too, while the list says “Indian Cinema” only Hindi Films that are Indian productions are being considered. Just to take both of those things in consideration.

So with that being said take a look at the site and learn the history of Indian cinema that was chosen by ones who also love it. Here now is the link: "100 films of 100 yrs of Indian Cinema."

When you look at it, it shows the silent era, the talkies, the 50s, the 60s, 70s, the 80s/Parallel cinema, the 90s, the 2000s, and then now, with the last film on the list being, "Ishqiya" (2010). It makes it easy to read and to learn.

If you want to make a check list of ones you've seen or want to watch, there is an easier list: "100 Indian Films." Once you're a member of the site, you can keep track of it by marking watched, to watch, add to collection and even can give stars to the movies!

So that's another interactive thing that users can do on Rinema. Perfect crash course for those who want to learn more about Indian cinema.
