For movie buffs, naming a good movie without any Indian component will be hard. Since Bollywood churns out around 120 films every year, you can expect a new movie coming up pretty regularly. If you are fond of movies and don’t want to miss out on any of them, here is a list of most popular Indian movie stars right now. With a little effort, you can add some star power to your collection of favorite Indian movies.
Directed by Shimit Amin, son of late director Asghar Khan, Welcome was one of Asghar Khan’s first successful films. Shot in and around Mumbai, it stars Mehenni Mani, Sonu Sadequee, Kirtan Star, Hrithik Roshan, Dayal Bedi and Adarshan Rai as the main lead characters. The story revolves around a murder mystery that takes place in a small rural village and revolves around the local bollywood heroes. This is one of the few Indian movies that actually manage to touch the core and heart of our society and have managed to make the country embrace the film even more.
“Aab ka Sita” or “Queen of Sheba” is an epic love story between the beautiful Queen Sheba and her loyal warrior Arjuna. The story takes place in ancient India sometime during the period of Maharaja Jai Singh. It is one of the best known and most loved films by the Indian cinema industry. It is also known as “The Princess and the Frog” due to the plot and story premise. Directed by Prem Chopra, who has previously worked on Indian films like “Chak De! India” and “Searching”, this film was produced by Shimit Amin and later released by Bollywood in two parts.
Another popular Hindi film that did pretty well at the box office was “Kheyru Bantay” or “Curtaille”. It is the story of a young girl who falls in love with a boy from a different town, but gets captured and married to a masquerade dancer from a far land, who has the ability to move through the tunnels to the kingdom of Bombay. The director, Shimit Amin, based the film on the novel “Rehana”, which was written by Rajkumar Kohli.
Recently, I saw an advertisement on television for an upcoming Hindi movie called “Mankatha”. I was very curious to see what this film was about. After seeing the film, I realized that this is perhaps the best film that has been directed by an Indian. I must say that this film did not make me expect for it to be as good as all the other Hindi films that are made. However, I loved the story and the way in which an artist like Shimit Amin has managed to create a dream story into a super hit movie. Amin has done an amazing job, and I would look forward to his films in the future.
Last but not least, I have to mention here that recently there was news of a new independent Hindi film called “Konobaan” or “The Festival”. This movie is directed by Shimit Amin and is the story of two brothers who come from a poor family to Mumbai and spend their summer vacation trying to get into the best film schools in the city. I am sure that even after watching this movie, you will agree with me that Amin has managed to transform this story into an amazing Hindi movie. Amin is also doing an amazing job in the field of screenwriting, and I can’t wait to see what he will do for his next project.
The film industry is really booming in the state of Maharashtra and the movie industry of Mumbai is in a state of high growth. Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about a possible merger between the Hindi movie production companies and the big Hollywood companies. If the deal comes through then we could soon see some great Hindi movies being produced right in Mumbai. A lot of talented young stars are playing an important role in this merger, but it is very exciting to think about how the future of bollywood will unfold.
Till now I have mentioned only a few names of Hindi films making a name in the bollywood scene. There have been many other great indies making a name in the bollywood scene like Suran Kumar, Adarsh Panchamrut, Satya Kumar, Manish Malhotra and many more. These are some of my personal favorites. So, if you are looking for some great Hindi movies that you would love to watch, I suggest you check out the latest offerings in the bollywood industry. The genre is so wide that there will be something for everyone here.
