Hehe... is the internet getting weirder?

If we are talking Bollywood then Chandi Chowk to China is pretty much the awesomest thing I have ever seen from that neck of the woods. Of course, I've seen very little as they are sort of hard to come by round here.
We are both the source of the problem and the solution, yet we do not see ourselves in this light...

Are we sure he means Native American? His ISP is in India.
oh yea, didnt consider the east indian angle, but of course I can't see his/her isp yoda-san.

Thank God I‘m an atheist.
Reel Injun: entertaining and enlightening documentary about Native American's (mis)representation in Hollywood films.

I assumed the OP meant Indian like Bollywood.
You cannot have it both ways. A dancer who relies upon the doubtful comforts of human love can never be a great dancer. Never. (The Red Shoes, 1948)

Otherwise, you can pick a Satyajit Ray movie.
"Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

I'm still going for Little Big Man.

You guys ready to let the dogs out?
Of more recent flicks:

Amen! Satyajit Ray movies are brilliant and I loved Lagaan, it also managed to cross overseas very well, a lot of my "non-Indian" friends appreciated it and watched it which is very rare for Bollywood movies.

I'm Indian but can't speak Hindi so I'm very much into my English films. From the few Indian films I've seen the ones I've listed below are classics and I'd recommend them to everyone, Indian or not

Also I'm almost certain the thread started wanted East Indian films rather than Native American films considering his username references this famous Indian (East) gentleman:

He was banned so I say we just post native American Indian movies.
