^How did you like My Name is Khan? I've herd great things about it. I'm actually in the middle of watching another Shah Rukh Khan film, Chak De India!, right now! I've watched a few Bollywood/Hindi films over the years and I really enjoy them. So does anyone else have suggestions for good Indian films that I can add to my list?

^ that's a really great film, just like 3 idiots!
I've watched some bollywood films, and I recommend all to you!
Rang De Basanti (must watch!)
Like Stars on Earth (kind of like My Name is Khan, but I think this is better)

^Thanks Emilylin! I'll add those ones to my list of films to see. One good "starter" Indian film that I like is Bride and Prejudice. It's actually a British directed and produced film but I think it's a good introduction to Indian films. I mean, it has Aishwarya Rai in it! And it's one film I show my friends if they are curious about these types of films. Also, Monsoon Wedding's really good, and it's probably another good film for people just getting interested in Indian films to watch.

^ Yes, I'd say Rang de basanti for sure. Devdas and Veer-Zaara, of course. Main Hoon Na, definitely Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and I am sure there are others I cannot think of right now.

^NPJ, you always have good suggestions! Now I just have to find the time to watch them all! I finished watching Chak De India and I have to say, I totally understand why pretty much everyone love Shah Rukh Khan. Such a gifted actor.

^ YoninahAliza, you should also try to find some films by Satyajit Ray too, for a different perspective in Indian cinema. They're not Bollywood or Hindi (they're Bengali) and a bit older, but some of his stuff is really great. I'd start with the Apu Trilogy, I don't think that they'd be that difficult to find. I think you'd like them though.

It was an amazing, amazing film. Wow! The acting was so spot on, the storyline was interesting and it definitely made me think. And to me, those are the best types of films. Blueorchid, I'll add his films to my ever growing list! Thanks

I really liked both My Name is Khan and Veer-Zaara. Both are sad yet uplifting stories! And can I just say, how charismatic is Shahrukh Khan? Seriously, I can totally understand why he's so well-liked, however he (and his characters) set unrealistic expectations for love!
Also, guys... I made it to 50! Half-way there (I really thought I wouldn't even make it this far in the challenge)!
