I find this an interesting sign of the times... I used to like Bollywood movies because they used to be family oriented entertainment dramas with pretty costumes. Many of the actors, singers, writers were Muslim and I think that made what they used to show more conservative... ie never kissing, rarely showing skin, never touching seedier topics etc. Now with the influx of foreigners and 'sex sells' attitude invading the films, they can get as nasty as every other film industry. Bollywood films were loved all over the world for their simple family drama stories. I think they were even allowed in communist Russia and north Korea because of that!

I also think that Indians really need to have a rethink on how all this foreigner/white skin/sex/item numbers etc are affecting their society. Anyone who doesn't see a correlation with the gang rapes etc going on there has blinders on.

I agree with you Sis J, both on the quality and character of the films and the issue as it relates to Indian society. That is a big part of what India needs to decide on - what kind of nation does it want to be, etc

They certainly don't make those nice love stories anywhere, that the late Yash Chopra used to make. I mean, there have been some classy movies, that had intimate scenes but that were done tastefully (I always like to point out Parineeta here). I am glad that these actresses don't last long...but obviously there is a large volume of Europeans that are the background dnacers and of course, they are willing to show more skin....I'd rather have the Indian dancers that are on a green, grassy hill just a bit off center from the two lovers, doing traditional dance moves etc. Those were the good old days - and I was  late bloomer as far as watching Bollywood films were concerned. My cousins were much bigger on films than I was.

Plus, Rani is on her wait out now (one more film coming)...marriage on the horizon it seems.
