What are the best Bollywood films 1

The 15 best Bollywood films

The Hindi film industry has been known to true film nerds for ages. But since the beginning of the 2000s, “Bollywood” has also experienced an increased upswing in Europe, which in this country is mainly due to the TV broadcaster RTL 2, which took the often three-hour films into the evening program. So at this point we want to remind you of the best Bollywood films!

It was a real boom that reached us at the beginning of the new millennium: Bollywood films conquered the television landscape in Germany and - perhaps somewhat surprisingly - won countless fans. Bollywood dance studios and clothing stores skyrocketed. The popular Bollywood films first shaped the Indian film landscape before they reached Europe via TV channels. In this country, the works were literally devoured, so that even older films could be dug up again. Most recently it was “My Name is Khan”, which was also able to celebrate great success in Germany.

The film themes are universal and therefore work for every audience: It's about love, friendship, family ties, but also misunderstandings, doubts and the constant fight against evil. The special thing about the typical Bollywood film are the dance and singing interludes that are integrated into the film plot and tell and / or complement the story. Western audiences often laugh at this addition, but it is what makes the works so charming.

That's why we looked at the popular contributions from the Hindi film industry and are listing the 15 best Bollywood films here. And who knows? Maybe a Bollywood film will make it onto the list of the best films of 2015 again.
