Beginners List *1*
So as this is a new blog, i thought i would start off with some beginner recommendations for bollywood. This list is very general, based on my own success with converting newbie bollywood fans.
1. Hum Tum – Literally translated as “You and I”, Hum Tum is a 2004 film starring Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan. Its perfect for beginners because it helps to prove wrong the sterotypes associated with Bollywood – that its all just meaningless singing, melodrama and 5 hour long movies. Hum Tum is modern, just over 2 hours long and an easy watch to enjoy. Biggest drawback of this film is the songs, not many catchy ones in the movie. This movie could get a newbie totally wanting to see more bollywood, or it might take another movie to get them begging for more. Either way i have never found anyone who didn’t enjoy Hum Tum.
