My Love for Bollywood Movies

In honor of the International Day for Happiness (March, 20th), I would like to speak about something I do when I feel a bit down and need a moral boost: Bollywood movies.

When I was living in Germany, one night, it was late and I was ready for bed, when I started zapping through the channels of the German TV, when suddenly …

A cultural show was explaining that, yes, nowadays (2001), Bollywood movies had became more modern, more accessible to a Westerner audience, and we should really give it a try.

As an example, they were showing Kuch Kuch Hotai Hai, in Hindi, subtitled in German.

Despite the late hour and my incomprehension of Hindi and German, I was hooked and watched the full 3 hours of the movie. I fell forever in love with the colors, the music, the garments, the love stories, and Shah Rukh and Kajol of Bollywood.

Since then, I have watched many other Bollywood romance and can only recommend you to try.

Here are some of my favorites:

Kuch Kuch Hotai Hai

 

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham

 

3 Idiots

 

Veer-Zaara

 

Vivah

 

Paheli
