Kareena Kapoor Khan made her acting debut with Refugee in the year 2000. Her next two films were Asoka and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… which were both quite successful.

Kapoor has received six Filmfare Awards out of ten nominations including Best Female Debut in 2000, two Critics Award for Best Actress, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress. These are the 10 best movies of Kareena Kapoor based on IMDb rating.
1. 3 Idiots
3 Idiots is an inspirational comedy with some serious but good messages. The movie had many great performances and one of them was of Kareena Kapoor, who played the daughter of the eccentric head of the institution. No one could have done this role better.
Omkara is Vishal Bharadwaj’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello. This movie was a poem in itself and the real strength of the movie was the amazing performances of all the characters. Kareena proved her mettle as the devoted and loving Dolly, showing everyone that there’s a lot more to her than the glamorous girl she often portrays.
3. Bajrangi Bhaijaan
The super-duper hit Bajrangi Bhaijaan was a lovely, positive and emotional movie. Kareena part was not that well-developed but she pulled off whatever was given to her very well.
4. Jab We Met
Jab We Met is Kareena Kapoor’s movie all the way. Her comic timing is top-notch and she is full of charm and full of life as the unforgettable Geet. She even handled the dramatic and emotional scenes with ease. This has to be one of her best performances ever.
5. Udta Punjab
Udta Punjab was able to spread awareness about a very alarming issue in a very entertaining manner. Kareena Kapoor once again proved why she is still ruling the hearts of millions of her fans for so many years now.
6. Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
Karan Johar did what he does best in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Kareena portrayed the role of the glamorous Pooh or Pooja with elan. She looked attractive throughout and even was even funny at times.
Mani Ratnam’s Yuva did not do so well at the box-office but the movie’s plotline is quite simple and very engaging. Kareena did her best to contribute to the movie’s story. She was cast opposite Vivek Oberoi in this one and they made a good pair.
Talaash is a dark,complex psychological suspense film that we rarely get to see in Indian cinema. Kareena Kapoor played the role of an escort Rosy. It was quite sensitive and something not in the lines of a typical mainstream heroine but Kareena fits in it effortlessly.
Chameli is another film that completely belongs to Kareena Kapoor. This was her first noteworthy performance. She was a pleasant surprise as the prostitute named Chameli and she succeeds in getting under the skin of the character.
Loosely based on Gujarat riots, the movie was an eye opener and had a strong message. Kareena looked and acted quite ‘real’. Her plain-jane look was attractive in its own way.
