However, there are some movies and DVDs worth watching, a few of them are excellent animation. This hub is a list of DVD/movie and streaming services recommendations that hopefully you might enjoy.

Despite their differences, their ruthless determination leads them on a perilous adventure that can only have one outcome: retribution beyond all means.

A deeply moving Hindi movie, but with an American twist. Rizwan Khan (Shahrukh Khan), a Muslim man with Asperger syndrome, was living a happy existence with his wife, Mandira (Kajol), in San Francisco until an unfortunate tragedy drives her away from him after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He set out on a quest to meet the President traveling all over the states until he came upon a boy and his mother and the town of Wilhelmina, Georgia. Find out how love and peace overcame hatred and anger in this Bollywood masterpiece. This is not your typical Bollywood films--the ones with lots of singing and dancing.
