What do you think of Bollywood movies?
18 Dec 06
Bollywood is the informal name given to the popular Mumbai-based Hindi-Urdu language film industry in India. The term is sometimes used incorrectly to refer to the whole of Indian cinema. The name is a combination of Bombay, the English name for Mumbai, and Hollywood, the center of the American film industry. Though some purists deplore the name, arguing that it makes the industry look like a poor cousin to Hollywood.
