The Indian film industry has been making Hindi films since the 1930s and there has been a surge of popularity in some places for movies made here. Since there are different languages spoken all over India, some of the movies are in different languages. The Hindi movies have become the most popular in the last ten years, which led to the term "Bollywood." This term actually refers to the Indian film industry as a whole but the movies to which it is referring are Hindi.
If you are looking for a Hindi Movie, you will have many thousands to choose from. By looking into the year of the movies, you might be able to learn a little bit about them. Here is a simplified guide. If the movie was made during the years of:
- 1940s – 1960s, it is from the Golden Age of Indian Cinema.
- 1960s – 1970s, it is most likely going to be a romantic or action film.
- 2000 – present, it is likely to be a musical or a melodrama.
You can use this guide to try and hone in on specific genres, or do a search online to try and find the right movie for you.
If you want to watch movies with specific Hindi songs or find a specific song from a movie, you can search for this as well. There are always trends involving certain actors or styles and songs in the media, so if you keep on top of the Indian news you will be able to find these trends and proceed accordingly. Watching a Hindi movie with many famous actors will probably mean that you will be able to find a copy of the soundtrack or recordings of the songs because people will be more interested in that movie.
If you are looking for a Hindi VHS or Hindi DVD, you will be in luck. Though VHS is less common these days due to a lack of video cassette recorders and the predominance of DVDs and blu-ray, there are always people who refuse to throw away their VHS tapes. You can find these and more online so that you can play them in the comfort of your own home or add to an existing collection. The same goes for Hindi DVDs, but they will be much more common and probably easier to find.
