‘Tis the season…for Christmas movie marathons…and Bollywood! Check out Awāra, Bandini, Veer-Zaara, Devdas, Pyaasa, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (top Bollywood Law movies (PDF) per Michael H. Hoffheimer),and other Bollywood movies in the D’Angelo Law Library and Regenstein Library DVD collections. Regenstein Library has Hum Tum, a romantic comedy similar to When Harry Met Sally. The Law Library recently added these new favorites of Hindi cinema: 1947 Earth, Gulaal, Jab We Met, Jodhaa Akbar, Mother India, Saathiya, Swades, and Water. You can find other Bollywood movies via Lens by searching for: Hindi feature films (or motion pictures).
Bollywood Hollywood by Deepa Mehta, while not strictly a Bollywood movie (it was filmed in Canada), has fun song-and-dance numbers. Bride & Prejudice is an upbeat, Bollywood-style, musical take on Jane Austen’s classic novel, Pride and Prejudice. Band Baaja Baarat is also great (partners in a wedding planning business fall in love). Enjoy! And…Happy Holidays!
