Over 1,500 Movies from Across India now at YouTube.com/movies

India is not just the world’s largest producer of motion pictures, but most likely has the world’s largest population of cinephiles. That means it’s tough to satisfy the insatiable Indian demand for films — but we have accepted the challenge.

Over the last year, we’ve worked to bring together over 1,500 Indian films on YouTube, available free of charge. And with so many titles, we thought it was time to give the youtube.com/movies page a brand new look. (For those outside of India who want to access our Indian films, go to http://www.youtube.com/movies/indian-cinema or alternatively, http://www.youtube.com/movies/bollywood.)


This renovated Movies page not only brings together the site’s Bollywood and Indic films into one convenient place but breaks down films by genre, spotlights new and interesting films, and gives you a Top 10 list of recent favorites. If you’re looking for a comedy this weekend, just scroll down to the Comedy section and check out Golmaal or Andaz Apna Apna.


Beyond Bollywood, the page also offers top Telugu hits like Pokiri and Kick, as well as Tamil films Kanchivaram and Baashha. You can watch movies in the language of your choice by selecting their preferred language in the top-right hand of the page.

Going forward we want YouTube to be the most convenient place for your film needs — whether that be watching old classics like Gumrah, Anand and Abhimaan, checking out trailers for upcoming releases like Don 2, Rockstar, and Desi Boyz, or viewing behind-the-scene footage for the films you love such as Swades, Band Baaja Baaraat, or the Making of a blockbuster song.
