Call me a coconut if you will (everyone else does) but I think 99.999% of Bollywood Productions are god-awful.

Of the options provided, Veer-Zara. It was actually good. I was shocked by how good it was.

My first language is English, I am fluent in 2 others, and have a "reasonable" level of understanding and conversational ability in 2 others. Hindi falls in the last category.

I see.

Assuming from your choice out of all the 35 options, you don't like crime/drama films. Am I right?

My favourite genres are Horror, Sci Fi, Urban Fantasy, Superheroes & Suspense Thrillers. Crime/Mystery films are good if they are clever and fast paced.

Romance is actually one of my least favorite genres, along with traditional Fantasy (Tolkien stuff), Westerns, and War.

Bollywood does NOT do a good job at my most favoured genres. They are usually dumbed downed ripoffs of Hollywood movies, eg. Gajni = dumbed down Memento or Krrish 3 = dumbed down bizarre hybrid of X-Men and The Island of Dr. Moreau.

When Bollywood *does* produce a good movie, it is usually a "serious drama." I am not usually "into" serious drama, but it's the only genre that Bollywood can compete with Hollywood on.

My favourite Indian movie is Fashion. Unfortunately it does not meet your 7.5 rating requirement,

I thought this movie was great.

Plus Priyanka Chopra *grin*

True, the only genres Bollywood is good at (so far) are Drama and comedy.

But to get the jokes, you need to be familiar with Indian culture. That's why I don't think you'll like their comedy films.

And the action movies are worst (not all). It's like most of them action films are part of the Fast & Furious series. (no offense to the fans)

Btw,

Have you seen 'Gangs of Wasseypur' or 'Ugly' or any other film by Anurag Kashyap?

He is the best director in India (IMO) and also my favorite.

No. I promise to look into them , AFTER I watch the Ultimate Cut of B v S, which will be after I am sober for at least 48 hours.

:)

PS. Fast & Furious are B-list films on an A-list budget. ;)

@NVanKerr Since you like Horror, i suggest u to watch Tumbbad. Its great, may be the best horror movie to come out of Bollywood.

Bollywood has produced some great crime thrillers too like Gangs Of Wasseypur, Andhadhun etc.

You shouldn't just limit yourself to Hindi movies, as South-Indian movies imo (and many others) are the best ones to come out of our country in recent years.

Crime thrillers like Ratsasan, Vikram Vedha, Drishyam, Super Deluxe are some examples of fast paced crime thrillers from South-India. Movies like Kumbalangi Nights, Angamaly Diaries, Jallikattu, C/o Kancharapalem are some great dramas.

Yes, Dan.

I have searched before making this list. There's no live or pending poll for "most-voted Indian films".

Even if I remove the "minimum 7.5 stars" requirement, there'd still be none.

And my other poll, "highest-rated Indian films" also has no similar polls. There are polls for each year's highest-rated, but not for all time.

There's actually two, but they're based on the top 250 list.

Hope I'm good to go. ^_^

Bonafide,

The title of your poll is a tad awkward. Please consider changing the title of your list from:
Most Voted Indian Films

To:

Done.

Edit: I also changed the description to:

"Which of these Indian films with at least 50,000 votes and 8.0 ratings is your favorite?"

And removed the films that didn't meet these requirements.

Bonafide,

Is the minimum rating neccesary? After all, you are only leaving two films out of the poll, (which will leave it at 30) and if this is about the number of votes, then whatever is most viewed should be given a change to get votes.

One of those films has a rating of 2.3 and the other film's plot was copied from a famous Hollywood film called 'Memento'.

And also because I suspect the film with 50k votes and 2.3 ratings is fake (the votes part). You see, there are many other great Indian films, and if you'd notice, most of those films has a high no. of votes. That means, Indian audience mostly votes only good films (in other words, films they love).

[ There are only 30 Indian films with 50k votes, out of them, 28 has a rating of 8.0 or above. ]

So why would those 50k voters rate only one film very negatively.
[ Note: There's only one Indian film with 50k votes with below 7.0 ratings ( that is below 3.0 ratings | 2.3 to be exact ) ]

But I can still add them if you want. ( I can also change mini ratings req to 7.0 to add that other film. ) Just let me know. Thanks.
