There's always a bunch of (Indian) people who claim, "I don't watch Bollywood movies because they are not artistic..." or "Because it's too much drama..." or "Too many songs!" and so on. I have a few things to say to you:

1. LET BOLLYWOOD BE! Man! It's called Bollywood for a reason. Not everyone is interested in working all day, and when it comes to leisure, using their minds to understand a complicated plot of some movie, and having to pay for it too! Sometimes, all the Indian audience appreciates is a little bit of humour, a few good songs and one or two dramatic scenes (coz what's life without drama?)

2. Quit comparing Bollywood with Hollywood. They are two different industries. Sure they both make movies. But the audiences are different. Furthermore, if Bollywood tries to stick to Hollywood's norms, Bollywood would lose it's identity and soul.

3. I do understand that there are quite a few movies that much. In order to save me some writing space, watch some review videos by Kanan Gill. You shall understand:

Having established all that, I will give you a list of what I think are good Bollywood movies. And if you still aren't sure, you can always read online reviews.

A list of what I think are good Bollywood movies (in no specific order):

1. Wake Up Sid!
2. Gangs of Wasseypur
3. Udaan
4. English Vinglish
5. Iqbal
6. Rang De Basanti 
7. Swades
8. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
9. Taare Zameen Par
10. Lootera

"We Are Entitled To Our Own Opinions"

In today's world, every argument ends the same, "We're entitled to our own opinions" or "That's your perspective!" and that's the end of that.

However, in certain aspects (take note that only in certain aspects and not all), does that barely matter. I believe that due to social networking, globalisation and well, technology in general, all our views are moulded into one. Everyone reads something online and everyone believes it.

We always complain about "that one idiot" who says something against what is posted, and we think his view is irrational or doesn't make sense. But you know what? He was man enough to post his opinion online. Many of us do not post our views online in fear of judgement from people, who follow the "social norms".

Of course, this isn't true for everyone. I'm just posting a thought. You're entitled to your own opinion.
