Top 5 recommended movies with mind-blowing plot-twists !

Hello Blogshaala-readers, hope you have been enjoying our TGIS posts for a long time. I, Ishaan, am back writing for this segment after almost a months gap. This time, I would be giving out my personal recommendations for movies with most WTF plot-twisting climaxes. So, buckle up !

A ‘plot-twist’ is defined as ” a radical change in the expected direction or outcome of the plot of a novel, film, television series, comic, video game, or other work of narrative. It is a common practice in narration used to keep the interest of an audience, usually surprising them with a revelation.”.

Alfred Hitchcock is considered a legend when it comes to this department while some directors have even made careers relying on plot-twists.

I, for one, am a huge fan when it comes to movies with that nail-biting and brain-twisting ending which leaves me enthralled.

So, here is my list of 5 movies that defined the mystery/thriller genre and are a must-watch for all, movie-buffs or not.
