Your Views:Most of these Hinglish films were successful only in other countries. But what an ordinary Indian wants to watch is a decent and entertaining movie. For that matter there is no language bar.

Your Views:Yes I am sure that the Hinglish movies are here to stay....and why should they not? It is the language an average urban teen speaks. It is a language that I used to speak when I used to go to college. I am sure they will stay and carve a niche market of their own!

Your Views:Nope.. English has currupted Hindi.. English should be limited to its own place as a foreign language. It is not India's people's language.. It is a language of our pompuous film stars, IAS lobby and some metroites.. Its only because of their colonial mentality and english-superiority complex.. No other nation on this earth can be so complex ridden as Indian are.. shame on us that we have put a beautiful language Sanskrit to dust and running after a technically inferior language English.

Your Views:No way!!! All these films look and feel the same and they are as monotonous as a regular Bollywood entertainer. These films may work outside India because audience there, including NRIs, are too happy to mock at Indian culture, which makes these films click with them and the supposedly sophisticated upper-middle class Indians!!! After all, how will we call ourselves 'forward' if we do not enjoy mocking at our culture and ape the Western culture.

Your Views:They will stay only if the story is relevant and to the point. The latest trend of Hindi movies with always a rich guy having a business in a foreign country and has a romance with story flip-flopping back and forth between a foreign location and India,will not work. It makes it look like there is no poor people and nobody lives in India anymore. When I watch these movies they seem so superficial, unrealistic and ridiculous

Your Views:Yes, I think Hinglish films are here to stay. Hinglish films have tended to be a bit more realistic in their cultural and social expressions. Characters are more clearly defined and the story has continuity and consistency. If they are being directed at NRI's then it makes sense to depict both worlds of the languages spoken by NRI's and all the bi-cultural and social naunces that come into play. The characters have depth and substance. And when a character in the film requires depth and substance, then the actors involved have to live up to that image for the film. This in turn helps the actors develop their very own potential in my view. I thought most of the Hinglish films made in 2002 were quite good and meaningful.
