15 Best Karisma Kapoor Movies, Ranked (and Where to Watch Them)

Published on

Hailing from Bollywood royalty, Karisma Kapoor dominated the 1990s with starring roles in a slew of popular romantic comedies like Dil To Pagal Hai and cult favourites like Andaz Apna Apna. After her recent turn as a yesteryear actress in Netflix’s Murder Mubarak, Kapoor proves that she is still dynamic as ever. If you are looking for the best Karisma Kapoor movies, we’ve got you covered with a streaming guide. This includes where to watch her best movies on streaming services available in India.

Which Karisma Kapoor movies should I watch first?

The easiest Karisma Kapoor-starrers to watch first would be her breezy 90s-era rom-coms. The best place to start is Yash Johar’s musical romance Dil To Pagal Hai. Johar’s film starred Kapoor alongside Madhuri Dixit and Shah Rukh Khan with the former two heroines playing fellow dancers who fall for the same choreographer (Khan). The movie is still popular today for its larger-than-life love triangle and iconic title track, Dil To Pagal Hai was a major hit for the actress, ranking as the highest-grossing Bollywood film of 1997. If you enjoy After Dil To Pagal Hai, you can then watch screwball comedy movies like David Dhawan's Judwaa, Hero No. 1, Biwi No. 1 and Coolie No. 1.

However, Karisma Kapoor is way more than just a romantic heroine. To see all of her best movies, you need to watch typecast-breaking roles such as Fiza. The movie is a social drama set in the aftermath of the 1993 communal riots in Mumbai and addressed the perils of religious intolerance and fanaticism. Kapoor played the titular heroine, a woman in search of her lost brother (Hrithik Roshan) who has turned to extreme measures haunted by the riots. The film allowed critics to view Kapoor in a new light and earned her a Filmfare award for Best Actress.

Another example of Karisma Kapoor breaking her typecast is and Zubeidaa. Directed by Indian auteur Shyam Benegal, Zubeidaa is a period drama set in the confines of a conservative princely family in Rajasthan. Kapoor plays an aspiring actress who marries a prince and attempts to break free of his controlling grip. Displaying notable emotional range alongside co-stars like Manoj Bajpayee and Rekha, Kapoor went on to garner a Filmfare nomination for Best Actress and even picked up the Filmfare Best Actress (Critics Choice) trophy.

While Kapoor took a step back from the limelight in the late 2000s, her sister Kareena Kapoor rose in stardom. Her intermittent appearances in recent times include Vikram Bhatt’s 2012 fantasy Dangerous Ishq that found her playing four characters across four timelines, the Ekta Kapoor-produced comedy-drama series Mentalhood that marked her OTT debut in 2020, and Homi Adajania’s 2024 Netflix whodunit Murder Mubarak. The latter was a notable comeback for Kapoor who played ominous B-movie actress Shehnaz Noorani, one of the many suspects of a murder committed in an elite Delhi social club. Kapoor’s subtle yet nuanced performance was one of the talking points of this adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s mystery novel Club You To Death.
