To assemble a team and face the British soldiers in a game of cricket, a game they have never heard of.

Dhoom: 3

In the cacophony of today's world, we'd like to transport you to a time when an audience discovered a film in the theatre. A time to forget your world and get involved with the world of: SAHIR - A man so driven that he exudes an energy that's at once alluring and dangerous, fiery, fierce and unforgiving. Sahir The Clown Thief is a force that destroys whatever opposes him. JAI DIXIT - The canny cop from Mumbai. Determined, analytical, persevering. Jai can go to any lengths to get his adversary and sometimes you have to think like the enemy to trap the enemy. ALI AKBAR - The entertainer.

Talaash

One late evening, near Mumbai's red light district, a car careens off the infamous Seaface Road and hurtles into the sea. The car's lone occupant doesn't survive the plunge. And when word circulates that the casualty is a famous Bollywood film star, what starts out as a routine auto accident investigation soon catapults the morose lead detective, Inspector Surjan Singh Shekhawat (Aamir Khan), into a haunting maze of deception, fatal attraction, and murder. Maybe it's significant that similar freak accidents have happened on that same road.

Rangeela

Rangeela stars the ever so beautiful, Urmila Matondkar. She stars in this film with Aamir Khan and it is a great film to start out with if you're curious about what is coming out of Bombay. (India's Hollywood). The movie is a romantic triangle about an aspiring dancer who wants to make it in movies. She is 'found' by the star of the romantic movie Rangeela (which seems to mean something about colours). The star is a shy, lonely, ageing lothario (played very well by Jackie Shroff) and he falls in love with her.

Rang De Basanti

Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra merges two plots in Rang De Basanti. The first is about a group of friends, their bonding, the carefree lifestyle they lead. The second plot pertains to the past, when freedom fighters sacrificed their lives during the pre-independence era. Without doubt, Mehra's intentions are noble, since portions in the film do succeed in pricking your conscience. Mehra draws parallels between Indians ruled by the British and Indians ruled by corrupt politicians today. The message is subtle at first, but echoes piercingly before it reaches its finale.

Fanaa

It is not difficult to choose between a good and a bad, but choosing the better of two goods or lesser of two evils can be really hard. Zooni Ali Beg (Kajol) gets this advice from her father when she sets out for the first time to discover the world of her own.
