List of Bollywood films

This is a list of films produced by Bollywood film industry of Mumbai ordered by year and decade of release and also contains the top ten or forty superhit films of respective years as the case may be. Although "Bollywood" films are generally listed under the Hindi language, most are in Hindi with partial Urdu and Punjabi and occasionally other languages. Hindi films can achieve national distribution across at least 22 of India’s 29 states.[1] Speakers of Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi understand the mixed language usage of Bollywood thus extending the viewership to people all over the Indian subcontinent (throughout India and its neighboring countries). Here are some examples - Partly Hindi: Om Shanti Om, Dhoom 2, No Entry and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Partly Urdu: Jodhaa Akbar, Fanaa, Saawariya and Kurbaan, Partly Punjabi: Singh Is Kinng, Jab We Met, Patiala House, Thande Koyle,and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. The film Veer Zaara is an equal mix of Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu.
