In India the informal name given to the popular film industry is Bolywood. Mumbai, which was previously named as Bombay, was the word in reference to which this name was generated.

Indian audiences expect full value for their money, with a good entertainer generally referred to as paisa vasool, (literally, “money’s worth”). Such movies are called masala movies, after the Hindi word for a spice mixture, masala. Like masalas, these movies are a mixture of many things. Songs and dances, love triangles, comedy and dare-devil thrills–all are mixed up in a three-hour-long extravaganza with an intermission. Bollywood conventions are changing, however. A large Indian Diaspora in English speaking countries, and increased Western influence at home, have nudged Bollywood films closer to Hollywood models.

Films are one way to express the culture, life, human relations, religion and values of a particular country. One can get an idea about a particular country from a film, which one may not get from reading dozens of books.
