5 Cheapest Ways to Enter Bollywood Viewing Top Hindi Films

Your Golden Ticket to Bollywood

Who says you can't be a Bollywood actor by watching and learning from All Time Best Bollywood Films?

You Can for Sure!

How to Learn From Great Hindi Movies and Enter Bollywood

It’s not that without watching Hollywood Classics and their great Actors, you can’t learn and enter our Bollywood. The cine world of Bollywood has also produced some great movies from which actors can learn the fine craft of acting.

5 Cheapest Ways

Watch and take the following steps:

  • Analyze:

  1. What is the objective of the film? What the film wants to show to the audience and how the film achieves it?
  2. Who are the characters in the film and what is individual’s objective and how he/she archives it?
  3. Identify a character which suits best to your physical and mental profile.
  4. Try to bring that character into you rather than mimicking him/her. Leave that part of a character which is not congruent (matching) to you.
  5. Practice and practice in front of a full size mirror or with friends. Do not make a mistake of copying an actor from a film, for example, do not mimic Veeru or Thakur from “Sholey”. You remain what you are and try to be Veeru or Thakur.

I categorize most of the Bollywood movies broadly as “Masala” movies and the “Others”. I’m sure you know what “Masala” ones are and you hardly learn any acting craft through them.


  • Boy meets Girl, at some point they fall in love. The society or families are against them, but at the end they either overcome all obstacles to be together forever or they fail and die together.
  • A common man rises against a fierce evil force - be it the corrupt government, a deadly gangster, or plotting friends or family - he fights them and emerges victorious to live happily forever.

All these "Masala" movies almost invariably contain - drama, suspense, action, comedy, romance, tragedy, satire, social message - all combined into a fun filled 3 hours. 

Films For Our Learning  Purpose 

Get Them NOW!

Get a copy of these films and watch these films carefully. And if you want to observe the quality of acting and learn, put off the sound and then watch actors performing. This will help you to observe “acting’ as a critic rather than just a viewer who gets emotionally involved in the happening with the film.
These “Good” films fall under different genre and here are my picks for actors to learn:

However, there is more to Bollywood than just "Masala" movies. Bollywood has also given all time masterpieces in both mainstream cinema and independent movies. If you really want to get a taste of Bollywood, you should pick at least one movie from each genre.
This would be my list:
