Listicle on time travel

We have seen a multitude of movies in Hollywood on time travel like the film series of Back to the Future, in movies of Christopher Nolan and even in Marvel movies. The same concept of time travel has been taken on by several Indian movie makers, where they forayed into the sci-fi department to bring in the logic of time travel mixed with the Indian dose of entertainment like drama, comedy and many more. Here is a list of some movies that brought in the elements of time travel and time machine to the Indian screens.

Aditya 369
8.8OTTplay Rating
This Telugu movie came out in 1991, where its makers were inspired from the HG Wells novel, The Time Machine. This rollercoaster of comedy and science fiction was considered to be the first Indian movie that adopted the concept of time travel in their story. The movie revolves around the lead characters who end up in a multitude of sticky situations after being transported to the past and the future, that are dystopian and apocalyptic in nature. The movie was able to blend the scientific logic of time travel and still manage to provide its audience with oodles of entertainment and masala.
