ABOUT INDIAN CINEMA

India the largest film making country in the world.  In Mumbai alone, they produce approximately 1000 movies a year.  This figure is based on a recent Business Week estimate.  This figure does not include the other various regional movies that are made in India.  However, this figure includes the several "Bollywood" movies that are made annually.  Bollywood is a term used for movies made in Bombay (now known as Mumbai).  Obviously, it is a take on the word "Hollywood" which is essentially the HQ for western cinema.

Movies began in India in the late 1800s and have grown and evolved with time.  The only constant in Indian movies is that they will leave you feeling good!  Most will have songs and dances in there, but just keep in mind that these elements as integral to the storyline as the rest of the movie. 

With increased recognition in the west, actors like Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor, and Shahrukh Khan are becoming household names even in the US/UK.

Who knows what else is in store for Indian cinema in the future as its popularity continues to grow worldwide...
