What is Bollywood?

Anyone who's ever watched a Bollywood film knows that good times have been had enjoying all the singing, dancing and funny quirks that come with a good Bollywood movie.

The term "Bollywood" is used to describe Hindi movies that were based in Bombay, which is now the city of Mumbai. Over time, it has become synonymous with the Hindu movie industry as a whole. Bollywood cinema offers fun, romance, wit and charisma to viewers. Don't speak Hindi? Neither do I, but thank goodness for subtitles!

One thing that is synonymous with Bollywood movies is their colorful and extravagant clothing. From one movie to the next, there's always glitter, gold and beautiful and colorful silks and linens. Cbazaar has Bollywood inspired fashion for everyone! Lehengas, kurta pyjamas for men, lovely sarees and so much more!

My Favorite Bollywood Movie...Devdas(2002)

My very favorite Bollywood movie of all time has got to be Devdas! It's sort of like romeo and Juliet but they don't die at the end. Devdas, played by Shahrukh Khan was born into wealth and grew up in a town playing with his little friend Paro played by Aishwarya Rai. As younger children, they know nothing about caste systems or money...they only knew they had each other and grew to fall in love with each other...without one telling the other...yet.

Anyway, Devdas was a disappointment to his father and sort of slacked off on most everything, so his dad sends him to London to whip him into shape. Paro is absolutely heartborken over this and lits a diya (candle) for Devdas' speedy return. Devdas does eventually return and Paro is all grown up and drop-dead gorgeous. Of course, Devdas wants to marry Paro, but his father is not having it and forbids the marriage. All hell breaks loose and both families are torn apart.

Devdas decides to leave Paro and writes her a letter telling her to move on. Reluctantly, Paro ends up marrying an older man, who has kids from a previous marriage her age and Devdas ends up marrying someone else. You'll have to watch the movie to find out what else happens, but I can promise you its filled with love, drama, music and dancing that you'll not soon forget!

AWESOME Bollywood movie- Devdas (2002)

Get the Movie...Devdas!!
