Cinelovers always appreciate vintage effect to new Bollywood flicks. Several films like "The Dirty Picture", "Lootera", "Gunday" and many others have successfully recreated the past with near perfection.

Of late many more movies and posters have been banking on the 'old is gold' feel. Going back in the time seems to be an emerging trend.

Let's have a look.

"Bombay Velvet"

"Bombay Velvet" is based on the famous book "Mumbai Fables" and is set in 1960s. The film narrates the story of a street fighter (played by Ranbir Kapoor) in a city that transforms to become one of the biggest metropolises of the country. The film is set in the past and has actress Anushka Sharma playing a vintage jazz singer.

"Detective Byomkesh Bakshi"

Sushant Singh Rajput's old-school hairstyle and the entire Bengali look take the audience back in times. It shows the Kolkata of the 1940s. Vintage cars, narrow lanes, cinematography take you back to the past.

"Dum Laga Ke Haisha"

Ayushmann Khurrana's "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" makes the audience relive the unpolished 90's. Those STD/PCO booths, cassette shops and typical parents' concerned about getting their kids married. The film recreated the Jitender and Sridevi era.

"Ek Paheli Leela"

Sunny Leone's film "Ek Paheli Leela" is a roller coaster that takes you from past to present. In this film, Sunny easily leaves Zeenat Aman from "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" trailing.


After recreating a vintage look in "Action Replayy", Akshay Kumar is back to take the audience back in time again. His next film "Airlift" is set in Kuwait and Baghdad of the 1990s. The flick is from the times of the Gulf War.

"Rang Rasiya"

"Rang Rasiya" has surely recreated the old times by all means. Randeep Hooda and Nandana Sen's film is a period-drama based on the life of renowned 19th century painter and artist Raja Ravi Varma.
