Watching a Bollywood (or Tamil or Malayalam, etc.) movie is an integral part of a visit to India. The quality varies as much as that of Hollywood films, but it's an experience that shouldn't be missed.
Although I didn't manage to fit in a studio visit during this trip (my passion for Hindi movies didn't take hold until well into the two months), I'm hoping to do so this winter.
If you're heading to India, check out the site below for a recommendation on what to see. Their reviews are usually quite reliable (scale of 1 to 10) and will give you an idea of what you're signing up for. If you don't think you can handle 3+ hours without subtitles, give it your best shot and leave at intermission. . .no one will mind.Related to:

: 1. You may get offended when you walk on crowded streets. Locals have a nasty habit of staring (don't worry-they only stare) when they see someone with a different skin color. You may (extremely rare) get a few comments too from the local by-passers if you wear skin-baring clothes like tank tops and skimpy shorts-Don't worry: it won't matter to you unless you understand the local language- Hindi/Marathi - The picture on the side shows Indians not wearing any shorts, sleeveless or tank tops even on a beach 2.Overall, Bombayites are extremely friendly and helpful. But there are always exceptions! Local cab drivers or roadside stall owners may try to fleece you by charging 3 times as much as the normal price for their product or service. TIP- Ask your hotel staff (if possible), what should be the approximate price? 3. Street urchins tend to swarm around foreigners-don't be scared. They are just trying to be friendly or asking for a penny or two. BUT overall, BOMBAY IS THE IDEAL BLEND OF BOTH -EASTERN & WESTERN WORLDS
