Meri Desh Ki Dharti

Only his face could convey my sadness of leaving my blog!
Readers and blog friends, I am returning to my desh - England, though India is my true bharat I am going back tomorrow for 3 weeks, and I am stupendously excited to see how London has changed for the better and for the worst. But could any of you recommend some good movies to buy over there as I have saved a ton of work money, and when I'm in Southall I plan to blow my money on movies. As mentioned I am not a conventional kid that spends money on conventional things so movies is what my suitcase will be filled with. Maybe some oldies and newbie movies would satisfy my money, but while I'm over there I'll try and blog some more, with better screencaps too!

In my hopeless but educated bias :) I'll say that you must see all Aamir Khan movies from this decade. Get the ones you haven't seen from among the following: Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Mangal Pandey, Rang De Basanti, Fanaa, and Taare Zameen Par (it'll be releasing very very soon) on your list.

I also really liked two other Ashutosh Gowariker films -- Swades and Jodhaa Akbar, so check those out if you haven't seen them already.

You probably know more about Shammi Kapoor films than I do, but I saw Kashmir Ki Kali recently and loved it. Heard from the most trusted sources on Shammi (that would be Memsaab) that Junglee and Teesri Manzil are fantastic as well.

Have fun in London! Are you going to bring us pictures of Amitabh/SRK/Salman/Ash from the wax museum? =)

I'm too new to Hindi movies to give recommendations to an old hand like yourself! Have fun in London... My parents just got back from there.
