Define "oldies" then I will answer your question. My idea of a good movie Bollywood is K3G for fun and entertainment. Aamir and Pinjar type movies for heart-wrenching drama. And Munna Bhai MBBS for comedy. That's it.

4 movies in nearly 7-8 years?

i can't do much to explain anything thenLOLLOL

Anyways, the fact remains that movies built in a fashion other than"typical " style are being welcomed and thats all that matters. Unless one brings a renaissance in india and makes sure all the western influence from indians is lost, you don't expect indian directors to make those kind of movies all the time, or even most of the timesLOL



Its not the western influence that bugs me, its the way that it is incorporated that drives me crazy. What is your idea of a good movie? Please don't tell me you enjoying watching movies like Welcome, Singh is King, and all those movies they make in the name of comedy these days.

I have a problem with the way quantity is overtaking quality. There are so many Bollywood movies produced in a given year - out of all of which - perhaps 5 are worth watching. Doesn't that tell you that something somewhere has gone wrong?

Love Aamir Khan too, he can be too much of a thinker at times, but quality work.

Speaking of Comedy Bollywood is becoming repetitive. Akshay Kumar is on the verge of becoming the desi version of Ben Stiller or Will Ferrel, albeit way better. Yeah I mentioned Judd Apatow earlier, but his films are way to crass and silly.

Want real comedy, the kind that Tina Fey can create. That woman is a Godess. Never has a chick flick been so smart, so witty, full of zippy one liners and touching real world issues. Mean Girls may seem like another silly teenage movie but despite being exaggerated humor has a true to life depiction of the American highschool crisis, the cliques and stereotypes, the rumors, the bullying, basically how the smarter students are being overshadowed by the prettier, richer over the top students. Bollywood needs more such comedies. IMHO some gems of underrated comedies were Pran Jaaye Par Shaan Na Jaaye and Yeh Tera Ghar Yeh Mera Ghar.
