Re: Bollywood films

Wow
Didn't know there was such a following of Bollywood films.

My last watch was Delhi Belly...and inspite of everything, I liked it.
But good films are hard to come by, I have heard Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is a good film.

I pretty much gave up on Bollywood in the summer of 2008 when "Singh is Kiing" and "Bachna ae Haseeno" came out. But I will have to say that some of my favorite Bollywood movies are:

My Name is Khan
New York
Dostana
and my all time favorite Shah Rukh Kahn film: Asoka.

I'm also not afraid to admit that I liked Dhoom and Dhoom 2. What can I say? Hrithik Roshan is good eye candy.

Bollywood can make some great movies, but I get really turned off by them always having to throw in some overdramatized love story.
There are always some directors who make really crap movies...overdramatized...etc...as you put it.
But then, there are some other who make brilliant movies...Anurag Kashyap, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Sudhir Mishra, Mani Ratnam, Farhan Akhtar, etc.
Of course, these movies don't carry the usual bollywood formula of glamorous song and dance, and hence mostly they fail on the box-office.
These are the ones, which people normally don't hear about since they are not mainstream, that are really worth the watch.

Re: Bollywood films

Wow, what an awesome list!

Monsoon Wedding is a great film too. There is not so much in the way of singing and dancing but it is definitely worth watching.

+1.

First bollywood movie that I got on dvd here.
I love the tone of that movie. And how it moves from the ostentatious overspending to a touchy issue. And how in the backdrop, life just seems to go on.

Zindagi na milegi Dobara...
Nice pic... I simply loved it and found the slow pace of the movie matching with the story perfectly...Songs are pretty good..

Re: Bollywood films

My second man in my life always needs a good audience. (check out my pic). The full list of his greatest achievements:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aamir_Khan

I am in love with his work, he brings a lot of hope to Bollywood films that many can't reproduce.

Dil Chahta Hai - already highly recommended on this list, but well worth it to list again

Rang De Basanti
Taare Zameen Par
Ghajini
3 Idiots
