An Introduction to Bollywood Movies

on Saturday, March 07, 2009

I understand that a certain movie filmed in Mumbai, India has made it big time in Hollywood and is really making waves. I refer of course to the Oscar winning movie, Slumdog Millionaire. Now I have not seen this movie yet but I am not unfamiliar with Indian movies. In fact, I understand that Hollywood and Bollywood plan to increase collaborating on more movies.

So on the verge of a Bollywood invasion of Hollywood, I have decided to provide a public service by preparing the world for this up-coming cultural treat. Don't worry if you are unfamiliar with Indian culture or the Hindi language. I have selected two videos of Indian movies' famous dance sequences. With the help of subtitles prepared by Bufflax, you will find that these movies are really quite
attainable and enjoyable.

Just in case, you will find the first video a little too much of a culture shock and unfamiliar, I have included the second video which is an Indian adaptation of the musicvideo "Thriller". So at least that will be somewhat familiar.

This is a public service for world peace and understanding. No thanks needed. Enjoy.

I kept saying "Self quit watching...just quit, hit the X on the tab..." But I couldn't peel my eye away from the videos. Yes POP culture has been imported too far but maybe when Hollywood gets well involved with Bollywood the technical values will increase.

That first one made me laugh so hard I gave myself a headache.

I'm going to show these to my son - he'll especially like the Thriller one.
