I'm not a big fan of Bollywood, despite being of Indian descent. I am disappointed that Fashion (c. 2008) did not make the list.

It is one of about 5 decent movies that Bollywood has produced in 100 years.

There is a certain operatic style and various clichés that Bollywood major studio movies have, and it can be something of a turnoff. Unfortunately, I find it hard to describe.

The target audience is a largely rural, poorly educated and internationally naive population.

They cater to the majority for economic reasons.

Most Indians outside of South Asia hardly ever watch Bollywood movies. I certainly don't.

Bollywood is fairly popular in the UK. At one point it was said to be more successful than British film.

Other than 3 or 4 films from the list, these are hardly 'the best Indian films'.

Shame that such films are considered to be of the highest quality in such polls and depict India!

Sorry for not responding. I was very busy at office. Wasn't getting enough time for polling work.
