GOAT - Greatest Of All Time

I am a big fan of "Best Science Fiction Novels", "Best Comedies", "Best Movies based in New York", etc kind of lists. It is very hard to choose works of art and rank them. Same goes with people. Premiere Magazine has come up with a list of The 50 Greatest Movie Stars Of All Time. This list, as usual, has many points that I don't agree with but that is not the point of the post. I haven't seen any such Indian lists but that might be because I do not read "Filmy Magazines". The only time I do read them is at the barber shop and as you can see from the pic it is not that often. However, I do remember couple of years back STOI listed the greatest comedies of Indian cinema but the standard of the list can be judged by the fact that it did not include "Jaane Bhi Do Yaroon". Here are a few lists that I made:
