Three Idiots was my gateway to Indian films. A former colleague asked if I had seen it before, and although I’d already heard about it then, I didn’t really pay it much attention. But when I finally watched it, it struck a chord. I’m not sure if it’s the theme or the way the movie took its time, but it was powerful enough to have convinced me that Indian films are the best films in the world.
I haven’t watched as many films as I’d like to because there are just too many. Did you know that over 1,000 films are produced in India per year? Also, I find it a bit hard to find time for it (cos you know, there are a ton of other things I need and want to do but I promise to make more time for it this year because it genuinely makes me happy). While Indian films are generally good, there are also some that are not worth your time. But these are the ones that I promise you won’t regret spending time on.
This is the only Indian movie I’ve watched featuring Priyanka Chopra and she was a bit unrecognizable in it, but I mean it in the best way. This movie is just so pure. That’s the only word I can think of to describe it. I’ve never seen anything like it, and it’s a feel-good movie but not one that doesn’t make you think.
