Inspiration – Some of my favorite Bollywood Movies

As some of you may know, I am a fan of Bollywood movies. My knowledge and expertise is narrow, but I’ve been fortunate enough to have people who are knowledgeable provide me with recommendations. Including, as it happens, some members of the offshore development teams I work with.

Here’s a list of some of my favorites, with some links to reviews where I’ve done them. You can find more if you click on my Arjun Rampal Fan Page tab.

This link will take you to my movie review posts, most of them are Bollywood movies so just scroll past the American Sniper review.

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi — This is one of my all-time favorite movies. I love it. You all should watch it. Shah Rukh Kahn.
Om Shanti Om — SRK AND Arjun Rampal
Rajneeti — Arjun with homage to Quentin Tarrantino — so, if violence bothers you, maybe skip, but this is a political film.
The Last Lear — Really really really good movie.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham — a recent recommendation from one of the offshore devs I work with. This is about family.
Band Baaja Baaraat — @alisharai recommended this on twitter. Super cute movie with a super hot kiss scene.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai — SRK, with one of the hottest shoulder touching scenes in the history of ever. Persevere to the 2nd half of the movie.
My Name is Khan — SRK. I bawled like a baby.
EMI — kind of a silly movie but thoroughly redeemed by one of the love stories — probably a must see for Romance authors.

    So, you really use to see Bollywood movie? Most of my Aussie acquaintance never seen a full Bollywood movie :/

    I like your write up.
    What is your personal inspiration to become a writer?

    • Yes! I went to see RA.One when it was showing in a theater a few miles from where I live, but usually, I buy the DVD from Amazon or Flix Films. I know it’s possible to stream them from Amazon or Netflix, but our internet here makes that mostly impossible, so I buy the DVDs.

      As to my personal inspiration for becoming a writer, ever since I can remember, I always wanted to write stories. But, to your point, what got me actually writing was when I read a book I heartily disliked and ended up saying to myself, “I could do better than that!” And so, I sat down at my computer to prove it to myself.

      Thanks for dropping by!
