Bollywood Movies

by Leeya

Bollywood movies are a huge part of Indian culture. Bollywood is like the Hollywood of India. The movies are known for their big wedding scenes, music, dramatic movie plots, and long film time. There are so many amazing bollywood films out there that I could hardly begin to touch on all of them, but I’ll suggest some of my favorites.

Prem Ratan Dan Payo

My brother and I absolutely adore this movie because of the catchy songs, extravagant sets, and multiple wedding scenes. While this movie is somewhat complicated to follow and does have violence, the plot of a royal twin-brother switcheroo will make you fall in love with it.


This is a more recent movie but is still great. It is about two girls from a small Indian village whose ex-wrestler father insists on training them. The goal? To win gold medals in international women’s wrestling. This movie is not only a true story, but focuses on themes of girl power and father-daughter relationships.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

This is probably the most famous Bollywood movie. This movie sets the standard for love so high as it focuses on Raj and Simran who meet on a trip to Europe. After some misadventures, they eventually fall in love. But it comes down to the battle to win over each other’s families. 

Jodhaa Akbar

This historical romance is not only filmed beautifully but has an intriguing plot. The movie focuses on the love between Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar, the Muslim Mughal Emperor of Hindustan, and Rajput Hindu princess Jodhaa. However, there are many things going against their marriage and love like difference of religions, betrayal, and criticism. The question is, will their love persevere through this?
