Bollywood films are 3 h long and have several music scores. English movies are short films of just half duration. Hence to make Bollywood movies popularize in other countries esp. UK, USA or other Europian Countries , these have to to be cut short just to half of length removing unnecessary music scores.
I work PT front desk of a motel owned by Indians... Nice folks..... Funny movies.... every time the guy looks into the girl's eyes they break into a song/dance.... can't make head or tail of it..... have seen 3 movies so far... one was about an Italian dude falling in love with a beautiful Indian chick... second one was about the native indians having a cricket match against the British... most recent one.. Slumdog ... too much poverty... but they usually have predictable happy endings.
If ever you rent another one, watch Fanaa. Its got so many twists and there is a political element to it as well. Not all Lovey Dovey. As for Endings, you will be surprised to see how this one ends. I think it will knock your socks off
Cheers Sweetiepie. I order them from Lovefilm sometimes. I just wondered why they didn't show them in Cinema's. Slumdog Millionaire had such a big promotion and that's been shown worldwide but there are a lot of other indian films that are better than that.
Bollywood has many stories. These films have been translated to english too. In uk and usa also there are many fans who love bollywood movies. You can see the examples of Laagan, Tare Zameen pay, Recently won oscar adward slum dog millionaire Its Indian movie with Indian actors.
