Top 10 Indian Films With Best VFX And Special Effects

Visual effects (VFX) are an important element that makes a movie more visually appealing. The filmmakers with a vision have been able to make their audience experience it with the help of VFX. However, the technology hasn’t been used in Indian movies as extensively as in Hollywood, due to the expense one has to bear. But in recent years, there has been a significant increase in the use of VFX in Indian movies as the budget has increased.

The use of CGI and VFX is still new to the Indian movie industry but some filmmakers have mustered up the courage to move forward with it despite the risk and the challenges they might have to face. With the release of the trailer of the most anticipated movie with promising VFX, Brahmāstra has increased our expectations from the Indian movie industry.

Here we have listed some of the best VFX movies with awesome special effects in India:
