Ek! Sirf Ek....

So if you came across an American who had never traveled outside America, and asked you to recommend one Bollywood movie for his/her viewing.....

Which one movie would you recommend?


Note: Not looking to educate him/her on the Indian culture or anything else through this movie. Perhaps, just make him/her appreciate Bollywood, or "Wow" the person.

* 72 days to go....

LOL!!! Tridev would be super!!! Is this supposed to be the usual naach-gaana types or something a bit more meaningful?? I could recommend Arth if it was something serious you were looking for... or maybe Chupke Chupke or Khoobsurat... funny, romantic and have great songs!

Depends on what category in bollywood I want them to experience.

If I want them to watch something very masala with romance, songs, blah blah..perfect formula..I would suggest...

MAINE PYAR KIYA.

Monsoon Wedding ....

There is at least one American i know in my office who loves to talk about this movie... on and on and on.

There is the character of PK Dubey (Dubeyjee) ... lavish indian weddings ... and then I can also talk about Delhi, my hometown.

AB: actually, RDB is a "inspired from "Jesus de Montreal", so we probably shouldn't recommend that one.

Purab aur Paschim...

... just to show that we too depict firangs as pathetically in our movies as they depict indians in theirs...

on second thoughts try Superman...

They'd really go WOW seeing puneet essar (remamber duryodhan from mahabharat) as superman and Dharmendra as his biological dad :)

Its got to be 'Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron'. The way we were before the markets opened up. No movie comes as close in getting the pulse of India right.

If they want quitenssential bollywood, with all its formulae intact, and yet an entertainer, perhaps, SHOLAY is the best example, as it does cover many genres in one film...
