Bollywood/Indian Movies I Have Watchedby Mimbulus_mimbletonia | created - 12 Dec 2012 | updated - 4 months ago | Public
I'm an Australian caucasian, but after a few of my friends (with Indian backgrounds) got me into Bollywood cinema back in 2002 when I was 13-years-old, I haven't looked back! This is just a quick way for me to keep track of those I have watched, good, bad, cheesy, amazing. I am a sucker for romantic Bollywood, even the really corny ones.
This list also includes movies with an Indian theme (like Gandhi) even if an Indian language isn't necessarily spoken.
I have also put other films from India in here, like Marathi, Punjabi, Telugu or Tamil language films (even though they are not 'Bollywood').
