Good Bollywood movies shot in Goa and the music from the movies

Had I known for sure then, back in 2005, that someday these Bollywood movies from Goa will be as easily available with subtitles as they are now through internet, Apple Music and iTunes, I might have stressed a bit less –

I might have taken a bit less photos and videos, been less sad about by my miserable camera with so less pixels back in the mid 2000’s and envied less about them film makers and other photoprofessionals with expensive cameras producing their beautiful big images and movies from those inspiring surroundings.

Also I might not have carried my camera everywhere in that heat just because people really needed to know about this amazing travel destination and the beautiful nature of Goa, India. I might have been more relaxed, had I known there will be Facebook and YouTube and Google+ and Instagram and that people will eventually get to know about everything, slowly but surely.

But on the other hand, of all these movies shot in Goa, it is Woh Lamhe and Finding Fanny which are expressing the atmosphere of Goa the best in my opinion, and for some reason it is just those movies which are not available in iTunes for people to see. Luckily there is Dilwale, among others, which has also nice scenes.

And yet – there’s still so many stories and scenes left in Goa to make a film about, or a photograph or a painting, for those who dare and care –

And still demand for INDIVUE’s Travel Opus to Goa, Travel Opus to India and Travel Opus to Bollywood also… telling you about how Goan beaches were in the mid 2000’s, and ten years later, and which are the good Bollywood films shot in Goa, India:

25 years of Shah Rukh Khan films and all the music from his movies

Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan has been making films for over 25 years now and he is the best known actor of Hindi cinema, outside India. Although, an interesting point to be made is that, unlike Irffhan Khan, Tabu, Amitabh Bachchan or Deepika Padukone, I don’t recall seeing Shah Rukh Khan acting in any foreign movies, outside Bollywood. Instead, nowadays Shah Rukh Khan keeps bringing Bollywood to West – Like in his latest movie Jab Harry Met Sejal Shah Rukh Khan was seen as a tour guide in Amsterdam. And we like it like that also.

Jab Harry Met Sejal, Raj Ne Bana Di Jodi, Veer-Zaara and plenty of other Shah Rukh Khan -movies and their trailers are nowadays easily available in iTunes, at least in America, UK, India and Finland. Down below I’ve linked all those movies with the names of their directors, so you can easily find and check the movies or the trailers!

But what is the best thing today is that you don’t need to travel all the way to India to find your movies, or even better – Bollywood music. Since we know that it is not only SRK who enchants you in his movies, but a lot has got to do with the great music in them, we are happy to find all the music and soundtracks of all the Shah Rukh Khan -movies from 1992 till 2017 in Apple Music -service!

Travel Opus to Bollywood and Hindi movies

Travel Opus to Bollywood and Hindi movies

Travel Opus to Bollywood and Hindi cinema is one of Indivue’s web publications. It started both in Finnish and in English languages back in 2005. All the articles in that opus are related to Bollywood, Hindi cinema and Indian movies.

In 2018 this Indivue’s Travel Opus to Bollywood renews itself – It will now also guide you to listen to the excellent music from Bollywood movies!

In addition you will find plenty of good Indian (Bollywood) movies to watch. With English subtitles. All this with the guidance of Indivue’s Travel Opus to Bollywood (Fin. Matkaopus Bollywoodiin).

So let us start with the introduction to the Travel Opus to Bollywood, which is a video called a Successful landing in Mumbai (the home of Bollywood). Video, images and music by Indivue.

 

History of Indian cinema in short

 

Hindi cinema is known by the name of Bollywood, because they combined the names of Hollywood and Bombay. (Nowadays Bombay is known as Mumbai, and the commercial capital of India.)

Find more articles about Mumbai in English here and Mumbai in Finnish here.

India itself is a huge country where they speak several languages. India has over 20 official languages and the movies are produced with over 30 different languages. The biggest and most important languages are Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Marathi, Kannada, Oriya, Malayalam and Bhojpuri.

Movie itself came to India in 7th of July 1896.

The first Indian document was a wrestling match in Mumbai, Hanging Garden, in 1897.

Bollywood itself is over one hundred years old concept. The first Indian silent film Raja Harishchandra was published in 1913, like Indivue mentioned on 21st of June 2012.

Alam Ara in 1931 was the first Indian movie with a sound, and a year later came the first movie with a background music. It was called Chandidas.

The first Indian movie in the Venice Film Festival was seen in 1934. It was called Seeta and it got also the first international reward.

Famous Indian movie awards are National Film Awards, Filmfare Awards, Stardust Awards, Star screen Awards, Bollywood Movie Awards and Zee Cine Awards.

The first Indian movie with singing was Bhagya Shakra in 1935.

The first commercially successful movie in India was Chandra Lekha in 1948.

The Indivue Travel Opus to Bollywood in Finnish tells you about the Bollywood movie premieres also. The previous link will tell you what was happening last year, in 2017. Most of those movies have come for sale by now!

If you wish to read and see all that Indivue has written about Bollywood in Finnish in the past, then follow the preceding link. You will get to read hundreds of articles.

In 2016 Indivue wrote in Finnish an article about

The Best of Bollywood movies in 2000-2016

 

The five star movies were these:

  • Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2015 *****

  • Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram-Leela 2013 *****
  • PK 2014 *****

 

The linking music samples attached here tell you some essential names behind the music in Hindi movies, like Lata Mangehskar, Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Lucky Ali, Shreya Goshal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

It is good to mention that all the Bollywood movies reviewed in Indivue have been seen through Western eyeglasses. That way much of the movie experience is based on the translated English subtitles made by somebody else, which might also explain why some masterpieces in Hindi cinema do not ring the bell of the Finnish viewer. And it goes vice versa as well, of course.

It might be very interesting for an Indian to see, what do the Western people like in Bollywood.

Find the Bollywood movies and their reviews here:

 

The first Bollywood movie I saw in an Indian movie theatre was called Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, and that was in Mumbai back in 2006, and in Regal Cinema. Find the article about that movie and Regal Cinema here. Those were the poor days for bloggers, when computers were withering slow and internet connections between Europe and India were even more slower.

Some ten years later I got to see another movie in an Indian movie theatre, and that was Shamitabh,

a movie partially shot in Finland.

But dvds and blurays have always been my number one because those movies had English subtitles in them. Luckily nowadays it is easy to see Bollywood movies with English subtitles also through Apple and iTunes.

About the actresses in Hindi cinema:

The best and most well known female actresses nowadays in Bollywood are:

This video was shot from the top of Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, Italy, during the massive heats of the month of July.

Castel Sant’Angelo gives you a splendid view over the city of Rome, and it is located by the river Tiber, next to the famous Roman bridges. It is also near the Vatican City.

Castel Sant’Angelo has a small entrance fee, and it works as a museum. I would recommend to visit there at least because of the views. See what else I would recommend from the article ”Art and Traveltips for Rome”!

After watching this short video from Rome, more related videos will follow, so enjoy your virtual adventure!
