Recently, Time magazine announced its list of the 100 greatest films of all time, and the eclectic selection includes five Indian films.
While none would question the brilliance of the selected Indian classics like Satyajit Ray's Apu Trilogy, Guru Dutt's Pyaasa and Mani Ratnam's Nayakan, rediff.com decided to ask Indian filmmakers, artistes, technicians and critics what they felt were the best Indian films of all time.
Today, we feature P C Sreeram, one of India's most celebrated cinematographers.

Sreeram, was the cinematographer on Mani Ratnam's Nayakan, one of the Indian films included in the Time list of best films.
