My Cinematic Alphabet - Indian Edition

Perhaps you've seen this on some other film blogs already - it's a recent movement/ trend inside the film-blogosphere, and basically, all you have to do is write your favorite films, one for each letter of the alphabet. Me blogging means the nice woman where I live in Hamburg does have internet, but it doesn't mean you should expect more posts for the next 1,5 week(s); the internship and this big city is on my mind most of the time. Anyways, here it is, the Indian Edition of My Cinematic Alphabet (I'll do a World Edition as well, later on):

A is for Asoka (Hindi)

B is for Bumbai (Tamil)

C is for Chalte Chalte (Hindi)

D is for Dil Se... (Hindi)

E is for 1947: Earth (Hindi/ English)

F is for Fanaa (Hindi)

G is for Guru (Hindi)

H is for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (Hindi)

I is for 3 Idiots (Hindi)

J is for Jodhaa-Akbar (Hindi/ Urdu)

K is for my one and only favorite film ever Kal Ho Naa Ho (Hindi)

L is for Luck By Chance (Hindi)

M is for Main Hoon Na (Hindi)

N is for Nishabd (Hindi)

O is for Om Shanti Om (Hindi)

P is for Parineeta (Hindi)

Q is for... SYSTEM ERROR... NOT FOUND...

R is for Rang De Basanti (Hindi)

S is for Sholay (Hindi)

T is for Tere Bin Laden (Hindi)

U is for Udaan (Hindi)

V is for Veer Zaara (Hindi)

W is for Wake Up Sid (Hindi)

is for... SYSTEM ERROR... NOT FOUND...

Y is for Yuva (Hindi)

Z is for Zindaggi Rocks (Hindi)
(due to ... alphabetical problems)

PS: Just filled my supplies of Bollywood DVDs, which I mostly buy in Hamburg. As I'm here for two weeks, it was a perfect opportunity. As a matter of fact, I have never before spent as much money on DVDs at once, as I have today.

Thank you for reading,

  6. @ All of you: Wow, I hadn't expected such a great response. You're all very welcome to do a list yourselves.

  7. Nice idea, very original! Now if I can figure out how to do a filmy list using the Hindi alphabet...

  8. @ Bolly Hood: That's a good idea as well, you should really do that.

  9. funny.. i watched most of them. you started well, i know many don't care for Asoka but it was my introduction to Bollywood and will always be dear to my heart... besides even at 32 i'm still a teenager head over heels with SRK :)

  10. @ Roxanita: I know, many people don't see the greatness of Asoka, but I think it's a really well-made and interesting film - I even watched it with some people that don't watch Bollywood otherwise, and they loved it.

  11. Amazing list darling! I would not make changes!

  12. @ bellegram: Thank you! (What else can I say? :))

  13. Q for Qayaamat Se Qayaamat Tak the first movie with Aamir Khan in a major role.

  14. @ aham: That's probably the one I'd take if I'd seen the film - but I haven't yet.

  15. @ Arjun: Well, there is one Tamil film, but because I haven't seen many regional Indian films, there's almost only Hindi films in the list.


Let the discussion begin!
