TGFI always TGIFs.
Pushpak. No translation/subtitles required. Let the laughter flow.
Anand...might be too dramatic though. All non-Desi Indian film lovers seem to love DDLJ by default so that's a good pick too. DCH is also well appreciated around the non-Desi Bollywood blogs that I've seen.-PeAcE--WiTh---GuNs
U don't want dramaaaaa???Why show bollywood then?I would show Taare Zameen Par actually... or DCH... Aamir's the besht! :)
Depends, do you want to show modern India or traditional India?My admin loved the dancing and costumes in Devdas (barf!)
lagaan or dil chatha hai
Honeymoon Travels! :D
Does Monsoon Wedding count as a Bollywood movie? That would be good. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron/Golmaal are funny and nicely acted. But if you are going for typical Bollywood flick, I'd pick DDLJ.P.S: Some of my phoren friends love Asoka for some reason.P.P.S: Munnabhai MBBS!!!
Monsoon Wedding is a good suggestion though not quite Bollywood. A bunch of multinational friends (Chinese, Japanese, American and Russians) enjoyed 'Hum Tum' very much (till about the overly melodramatic end).
Main hoon na!
My American officemate and her family loves all SRK-Kajol movies. The kids even know some of the songs and dance with them :) They are long though.
I think you should show them Race. They will start wondering if it was a Hollywood or a Bollywood movie... The twists & turns in the story are awesome, but you might need to do a lil bit of translation.. But otherwise the body language is good enough!DCH is my next bet! :)
Dil Chahta Hai /Taare Zameen Pe
Spare them the crap, and reach heaven!!
Munnabhai part II - everyone knows Gandhiji, so the context is clear... ofcourse the movie is long.... I think pushpak would be a great choice.
DCH? Taare Zameen Par? How about Sangharsh, the one with Preity Zinta and Akshay Kumar? Or even 1947 - Earth? Or Sarfarosh? Or Hazaaron Khwahishein Aisi? Or wait, Jab We Met!!! :D :D :D:P
Hmmm...I love DDLJ so I'd go for that for sure but K3G is a good light movie too - or Muhjse Shaadi Karoge is funny....or if u wanna go there.....Om Shanti Om :P
jab we met...full on time pass!or main hoon naor best, chak de india
They would recognise most of the films anyway, hollywood rip off !
I would suggest Kal ho na Ho!Feel good, witty, awesome, melodramatic, self-sacrifice, bollywood, and SRK (doesn't get better!)
Dil Chahtha Hai...It is not artsy, it is bollywood at its best and it is really good. Oh I have been coming around quite a bit, you have an interesting blog. I like you Scientific curiosity blog too, Quenches my thirst ever so often
This has nothing to do with Bollywood, but I was forced to delete my blog because, to my horror, I've recently learnt that my mother has been reading it since as early as December. I'll make a virtually identical one and let you know so, hopefully, you can relink me. ;)
SRK mainstream movies are always a hit with my non-desi friends. Or you could try Salaam-Namaste!
A tad late but nevertheless..in case you haven't had the showing as yet..1. Pyaar ke side-effects2. Chupke Chupke or Golmaal (the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ones)3. Tridev4. Hyderabad Blues5. Chandni6. Lamhe7. Kati Patang8. Yaadon ki Baraat9. Guddi10. Khoobsurat (Rekha & Rakesh Roshan not Urmila & Sanjay Dutt)
Hyderabad Blues.. she was ROFTL after seeing that one.
