If you liked the movie "French Kiss" starring Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan, then you will love the Bollywood spin on the story. This film stars Ajay Devgan and Kajol (a true life married couple), and stretches this story out to well over two hours because they add additional music (you know, like Walt Disney does), and so you get to see alot of beautiful Indian fashion, with beautifully choreographed dance scenes. And Kajol, my goodness, is she a gorgeous actress, or what? . After I saw this movie starring Kajol, I rented "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham", and "Fanaa" just to see more Kajol films. And then I discovered even more beautiful Indian actresses. Hundreds of them. Now, I'm convinced that Bollywood (India's Hollywood) has the most beautiful women in the world. Since 2001, when I first saw "Lagaan", I've must have watched about 300 Bollywood films. Not all are great, and many even have less-than-wonderful acting, but everybody looks so good.
But nowadays, I generally still watch Bollywood films because I love to watch good looking people on film. A good story is only secondary as my intention to be entertained.
If you an English speaking American, and are new to Bollywood films, let me give you a breakdown of how I interpret and ingest the Bollywood experience:
First of all, you will most always be reading English subtitles.
The average Bollywood film is about 3 hours long.
Bollywood films are very colorful. All their beautiful fashion, and colorful dance floors. In High Definition, just the sceneries alone make you appreciate what High Definition is all about.
About 30 percent of the film will be music videos (with Yash Raj films, it's more like about 45 percent). I personally wish there were less music videos if the movie is already over three hours long.
About 30 percent of most Bollywood films have some rather silly, really unfunny, and downright annoying comedy scenes (which is usually in the first half of the film), then the film will start to become more serious, as it moves along.
One of the main reasons why you will watch a Bollywood film, is because you already chose to fall in love with one of their many beautiful actresses, or handsome actors. (I personally try to see all Rani Mukherji films, and Shah Rukh Khan is the one actor known to be one of the biggest box office sellers of Bollywood.)
So, I guess I can honestly say that I have about 10 Blu-Ray Bollywood films which about 7 of them are Yash Raj releases. Though I have about 100 Bollywood films on DVD, all I really care to get on Blu-Ray now is "Lagaan" which was the first Bollywood film that I saw about 10 years ago. And perhaps "Mann" with Aamir Khan, and "Rangeela" which stars the enchanting Urmila Matondkar. Oh, and I guess it would be truly appreciated if "Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai" starring Amisha Patel and Hrithik Roshan would ever be released in High Definition Blu-Ray. The scenes in India and New Zealand were all just so beautiful on the screen.
Another good movie that I would like to recommend, that is not a Yash Raj film, but is available on Blu-Ray is "Ghulam" starring Rani Mukherji and Aamir Khan. Even all the song videos in this film are all truly appreciated, and the added humor isn't so annoying. Check it out!
