12.06.04 - Filmi

State College

'Filmi' is the Indian slang for over dramatization.
India is the world's largest producer of films. Every year almost a thousand movies
are churned out and to the billion Indians this is the best source of entertainment.
The stars are bigger than life, the stories are grander than fiction and the industry
serves as the livelihood for millions.
'Bollywood', 'Kollywood', 'Tollywood', these are just some of the film industries in
India. The star shown here is Kareina Kapoor, the teen queen. Some of the other famous
stars are Aishwarya Rai (Miss. World), Kamal Hassan (the winner of the most number of
national awards), Shilpa Shetty, the Big Brother controversial winner, and Shah Rukh Khan, the
heartthrob of many of the NRI's and young Indians.
If you have the opportunity, catch an Indian film, listen to the songs, watch the action and revel
in the beauty of the stars. It is all filmi. Very filmi.

Hey sweetie, nice pic! I have my dad interested in Indian movies now...he wants to go to the Indian store and start renting them because we've run out of Bollywood movies at our Blockbuster video. hahaha
