3 Idiots

If you happen to be in the mood for something new when it comes to improving your Hindi skills, then carve out some time to watch a Bollywood movie or three. Not only will a Bollywood production transport you to a different reality, but it will also make you squeal and dance and cry as though you are a part of the action. Now, for those of you who don’t know, “Bollywood” is a portmanteau of the words “Bombay” + “Hollywood” and it was created sometime around the 1970s. This film genre alludes to the Mumbai-based Hindi-language film industry, which is also a subset of the larger Indian cinema. Many Bollywood films feature impressive visual effects, catchy music and dance numbers, swoon-worthy love stories, and captivating plot twists (though sometimes these twists are very, very predictable). Just like any other movie, a Bollywood film offers a story for any movie-watching audience. Want to laugh out loud? Bollywood’s got that. Want to fall in love? Bollywood’s definitely got that. Want to feel hopeful and victorious? Don’t even sweat it, because Bollywood’s got that covered for you. To get a glimpse of what we’re talking about, check out our must-watch charming Bollywood movies for a start.
