and during an action scene, they just start playing the fucking terminator theme as if it's theirs

YouTube

this isn't even the first time they used it in the movie and i'm only 30 minutes into it

is this normal? because it's kind of hilarious

also this movie is 5 minutes shy of being 3 hours long, and i'm not sure if i can handle that

that was a fun movie tbh, a little exhausting at times, and not the most engrossing story or anything (basic revenge stuff), but it seemed like everyone involved had a lot of fun making it, and i appreciate the spirit behind it

i don't know what to rate it though, because it kind of breaks my scale a little bit

these movies seem to be made with a completely different philosophy that i don't know how to compute logically

like, it's not every day in america that you see a 3 hour action musical, but i guess this sort of thing is the norm in india

also, hinduism seems like the funnest religion in the world

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
I've caught some Indian soap operas from time to time on the job, even seen the man from the good ol Steindo Gate meme on his real show. They seem like a riot, more fun than Mexican soaps.

Who paid you to look at this?
Bollywood is known for their ridiculousness, I'm not suprised by this at all.

Doesn't include the Terminator theme but here's a good example:

Coincidentally, Corridor Crew uploaded a Bollywood VFX analysis just today.

Indian movies are so fucking over the top, but I can't say they aren't hilarious at the very least.

so i had to give this one a 4/10 just because i definitely didn't enjoy it as much, but apparently, this is the single highest rated indian film of 1995 on IMDb

which doesn't bode well for the rest of the ones i'll be seeing

Omg this takes me back. One thing you need to know about bollywood movies is: They're all emotional. You're not gonna find a single thought provoking movie out there from bollywood. If it's an action flick it's always gonna be about how the main guy can beat up several thugs without breaking a sweat, and usually it's about revenge.

Anyway, I don't remember these movies, but I remember them being good. Here are my recommendations:
Om Shanti Om -
plot
iirc it's about an Aladin type of dude who falls in love with this rich girl and they both love each other? Anyway shit happens and I think they both die. The guy reincarnates as some rich kid (movie star?) who regains his memories or something because the ghost of the girl haunts him and so he knows who's responsible for killing him and the girl
3 idiots This is the only intelligent movie out there lmao, it's a comedy and it's decent from what I remember. Definitely watch this, it's about 3 dudes in an elitist engineer school.
Dhoom 1 - I remember this being the coolest movie ever as a kid
YouTube

Krrish - Basically Tarzan if he became Zorro the masked thief
Golmaal 1+2- comedy movie with a lot of A-list actors. Funny thing is you can find most of these movies on youtube.

Munna Bhai MBBS - about a thug boss becoming a fake doctor

The Om Shanti Om song is basically the main guy singing about the events that happened in front of the guy responsible
