Do you think that the length of Indian movies are long?

I have watched a few Indian movies and some are great, especially Three Idiots. However, I also think that the Indian movies are usually very long. It can last over three hours and this is quite a long time for me already. I wonder whether Indians also feel the same or they have got used to it?

I used to have an Indian friend and I would watch movies with him at home. I loved them! They were so cheesy but also very interesting and I would become totally involved. I can't remember if they were long...I doubt I would have noticed.

A major reason could be because there are 5-6 songs in every film and that itself take 30 minutes. But now a days films have been shortened upto two and a half hour. If film is interesting that it doesn't mind whether it is of 2 hours or 3 hours. If there are no songs I will not go and watch a film in theater.

Indian movies are usually long but these days the movies that are being are not like the 3 hour movies that have always been made in india nowadays movies stretch maximum to 2 and a half hours.In india the movies are designed to give a full package of entertainment to the audience they are a mixture of action,drama,comedy and music.So it does get difficult for the film makers to include all these in the usual hollywood time limit.

Hi there.. i haven't seen other indian movies except for the three idiots but honestly there were a lot of scenes that can be eliminated in there and the story won't be sacrificed at all. I understand too that they love to sing and incorporate dances however... they cam always try to keep these at a minimum. Not a lot of people likes musical and their stories could have been great if all elements of a movie is or was well balanced. Sometimes the setbacks for these movies are that you really feel how long it is because it was jot able to keep you joked to it all through out. There were movies even if they are too long.. but still you would hardly notice the time.
