    With a fair amount of people using Netflix or something similar these days, movie selection has grown... has anybody delved into the Bollywood arena? I've watched a few and quite enjoyed them (although man they are long movies!). Anybody have any favorites or recommendations in the Bollywood area?

    I was never a big fan of Bollywood movies growing up, because it entailed going to the Indian Store and getting bootleg copies, most of which were horrid quality VHS.

    In recent years though, I've found a few Bollywood movies that are amazing:

    Rang De Basanti is in a class of its own
    Aankhen
    Lagaan
    Koi… Mil Gaya

    Movies from India for the most part. I think the first one I ever saw was Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. and is still quite possibly my favorite. Hollywood was making an American version of the movie but I'm not sure if they scrapped it. It wouldn't have been the same anyway... Here's a musical number from the movie... of course it makes more sense with subtitles (or if you understand the language too I guess).

    If you like long movies with random musicalness thrown in, check out Bollywood.

    I think the most interesting thing about them is that some of the movies, while they might seem silly, feel like a new movie. I've seen so many American movies that I rarely get surprised or feel like I'm watching something different. When I started hitting up Bollywood I feel like I've gotten to see new and interesting things.

    Here are some numbers from Dhoom 2 that feel a little more up to date...
