The Color and Pageantry of Bollywood.


Ahh, Bollywood. Where else can you break out in song and dance in an instant while wearing colorful wardrobe? There's something fantastic about Bollywood movies. While sometimes cheesy and behind the times, they're also incredibly fun. The music and dancing is phenomenally entertaining and the lesson you'll learn in Hindi will last a lifetime. The trendy plotline in Bollywood movies has been a love story revolving around conflict. Wait, that's also a trend in Hollywood.

I just finished seeing a great Bollywood film called "Veer Zaara." Yes, it too was a love story orbiting about troubling circumstances. This flick was much more than your average Bollywood story. It touched upon love, redemption and the ridiculous state of affairs between India and Pakistan. The music was great and the actors were able to hit the dance floor with alarming ability.

By the way, if you're interested in seeing another great Indian movie check out "Earth." It's a Bollywood movie based upon the novel "Cracking India" by Bapsi Sidhwa. After watching Earth, you'll definitely develop a deeper appreciation for the damage caused by the 1947 partition of India.

I've actually never seen a Bollywood film. Based on your post, we picked up "Bollywood Queen" from Blockbuster. Is it a good one to start with?

Raine: The best bollywood movie at blockbuster is probably Lagaan. It's an amazing movie. If Bollywood Queen isn't too your liking, don't refrain from trying out Lagaan. I guarantee you'll like it!
