I live in an area where I have access to Indian movies but I don’t know that much about them.
I watched a few (and a few parodies). How universal are the stereotypical musical numbers? Do they virtually all have them or is it something that people focus attention on?
What are some of the classics I shouldn’t miss?
I said Bollywood in the title but I know there’s actually several film centers in India besides Mumbai. What should I be looking for in Bengali and Malayalam and Telugu and Tamil movies?
