2006 had some of the best movies made in the 21st century. I can name at least 5 movies from that year which are already recognised as potential classics. While cinephiles like me remember the year because it was the year when my favourite director Martin Scorcese won Best Director at the Oscars for The Departed, there were plenty of other movies in the year too which were simply outstanding. Here’s the full list of top movies of 2006.
13. Pursuit of Happyness
One of the most path-breaking and life-changing movies I have ever seen. Pursuit of Happyness is the story of a man who doesn’t back down in spite of the various adversities he faces in his life. A story of a man with a determination to achieve true happiness. A must-watch for the terrific performance of Will Smith and the absolutely heart-warming bond between father and son.

Sacha Baron Cohen is one of the finest comedy actors of all time. Though sometimes he can go a little overboard, Borat certainly isn’t one of those movies. Borat is unabashed, badass and one of the most hilarious movies I have seen in recent times. Cohen plays a Kazakh reporter who visits America and discovers a lot about the country while interacting with the locals. It is like a mockumentary and it will disgust you at times, but you cannot help laughing at the antics of Borat.
