Do You Like Bollywood Movies?

Sun Oct 30, 2005 3:53 am

Hey,

I have to admit, I love Bollywood movies. They're great. I try to watch as many as possible, though I can't get my hands on too many. Here are some of my favorite ones:





I talked with my friend who's Indian and he couldn't believe that some white guy would like Bollywood movies. They all seem to have really awesome plots. And of course.. the dancing/singing scenes are the best. Very different than the Hollywood we're used to  Smile

.... and by the way.. let's not forget.... HER........

Only watch movies having these four Khans in them.

1. Sharukh Khan
2. Amir Khan
3. Salman Khan
4. Saif Ali Khan

Well it would be worth mentioning that I myself am a Khan.  yes

Just for putting on Lagaan welcome to my RU list. What a wonderful movie. Made me understand and actually like cricket!!"Plus the dances are amazing and the actors as well

Different culture I guess...many people find it annoying that there is so much singing and dancing in the movie. As I say its a different culture...so why not enjoy that aspect ¨!

I can never watch a full Bollywood movie. Most of them are simply crap. Few exceptions are always there, I have watched a few Hindi movies that were really good.
I was a bollywood fan as a kid, I must have watched all Amitab movies.

I liked a recent movie called "Parineeta" and was surprised to know that the heroine was a Keralite-Tamil. She looked more like a Bengali (Vidya Balan).

I enjoy watching Bollywood Movies. These are some of my favourite titles:

Kal Ho Naa Ho, Paheli, Saathiya, K3G, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Hum Tum, Bach Ke... (don't know how to spell it), VEER ZARA, and many others!

Are there any new good ones besides Salaam Namaste? There aren't that many new ones that I'm interested in, but I feel like watching one. Is Parineeta or B+B good?

Who here watches AVS?

Jasepl,

Yeah, I really liked it. I can't compare it to Lagaan. Very different, but it was a light little comedy. I would have to think that this movie was aimed at the "American" audience too. Don't you think? None the less I did like it.

Anyway, I remember the first Indian movie I saw as a small kid when I was living in Romania. I have no idea what it was called, but it was about a guy who moved to small indian village. I can't remember what job he had. Either an engineer or a doctor. Anyway, there was this really beautiful girl who he liked, but then he found out she had a burn mark on her face, because she burned herself with oil when she was young. Then a big flood came to town, etc etc. I wouldn't mind seeing that movie again, but I have no idea what it's called. This is going back at least 17 years.  Smile

Cheers,

Vio

I think they're fun - sometimes it's a little tough to follow the plot (Rich Boy Meets Secretary, Secretary sings song and dances round with 800 close personal friends, Rich Boy sings song with 800 close mates, Rich Boy dances round Switzerland with Secretary, Rich Boy discovers Dark Secret about Secretary's uncle, All Is Lost, Rich Boy sings sad song and dances round with 800 close personal friends, Secretary sings sad song and gets rained on, Rich Boy's Nasty Mother finds out Real Truth About Secretary's Uncle, All Is Forgiven, Disgraced Uncle does much mugging and contrition, everyone dances with 800 close personal friends, the end). But they're fun, I inevitably end up watching if one comes on TV.

You are talking about 'Satyam Shivam Sundram' starring Zeenat Aman as the girl with the burn mark on her face. The engineer who moved to the village was Sashi Kapoor. Zeenat was really hot in that movie.

I used to love watching Bollywood films (before they called them that), especially the really really stupid ones with Jeetendra as the hero, Ajit as the villain, Helen as the moll, and the usual suspects as the hero's screecy widowed Mom, etc. Back then they were tacky beyond belief and each line generated a howl of laughter.

Nowadays, I don't watch them at all, except for the cross-cultural ones like Lagaan and Bride and Prejudice. Aishwarya Rai is gorgeous and contrary to what the Indian press thinks, I think she's a pretty refined actress (I guess unless you over-act in Indian films, you're considered a bad actress).

And I think that Akshay Kumar is the hottest actor in the world.

No haven't watched all of them. One channel in Germany is blowing out Bollywood movies lately (RTLII).
They're dubbed anyway (i guess you in England get subtitles or are they in English?).
I can't stand that romantic shit from India (Don't get me wrong, sometimes romantic movies are very good and lovely to see) but these Bollywood movies go much to far.
For me they're rubbish. And i can't even tell you which i have seen cause they get these stupid German titles as well.

I don't know why we germans tend to dub movies and give them stupid german names.
Just one example: Dukes of Hazard was called: Ein Duke kommt selten allein
(Translation goes like this: One Duke never comes alone (or so)).

But you can say that for most Bollywood actresses - they're all chosen for their looks and basically have to look beautiful. Admittedly, I haven't seen too many of the new ones (who all look the same), but I did see Aishwarya in Choker Bali and "Bride and Prejudice" and I thought she really carried the second film. Oh, and I saw her at one of those silly Bollywood Song and Dance shows in New Jersey once, where she was charming and funny and ribbed the audience. Besides, I'm sure that Indian audiences wouldn't want her gettign down and dirty. They sort of go to see an Aishwarya Rai film just to gawk at her.

Looks like you have been watching one of those horrid pirated VHS tapes... just try watching some of the new Hindi movies on DVD (most Indian grocery stores carry latest DVD's). The quality of Bollywood movies has really gone up in the last few years... at least in the "slickness" sense.

I'm in the halfway through of watching Veer Zaara at the moment. I love the way some DVD's (pirated?) still have an "Intermission" sign come up. Lagaan is the best story I've seen, but nothing yet beats Swades for its music.

Admittedly, I haven't seen too many of the new ones (who all look the same), but I did see Aishwarya in Choker Bali and "Bride and Prejudice" and I thought she really carried the second film. Oh, and I saw her at one of those silly Bollywood Song and Dance shows in New Jersey once, where she was charming and funny and ribbed the audience. Besides, I'm sure that Indian audiences wouldn't want her gettign down and dirty. They sort of go to see an Aishwarya Rai film just to gawk at her.

I haven't seen most of the old ones, but I have to agree with you about the new ones. Some friends wanted to go see a recently released (don't know the name). I refused to go see the same movie for the 19th straight time.

As for Ash, I haven't seen Choke-her, but I thought her 'performance' in Bride was even worse than the movie. Martin Henderson was the least bad thing about it - and that says a lot!

Did you see the original version or the Amritsar (Hindi) one?
