Awesome site about Hindi Films!! great info, highly entertaining

So i must confess, I never knew there was a name for people like me until I found this incredible website.. Filmi Geek.. Having personally watched (and cried over) scores of hindi films ("filmi") going all the way back to the early 50s (even sadder, i often watch these movies alone..)Now I know there are others out there like me.. sniff, sob, and this website is now becoming something like a sanctuary for me... (fade in: heartwrenching string music with a rush of sitar notes) The problem I have so often when Im in a Hindi movie store, having a bit of a language barrier with Hindi film titles etc, is that I can't really judge a good movie from a bad one by just looking at the DVD covers..(whether Shemaroo, or Eros, or a miriad of other companies re-releasing these films) What's even more frustrating is that the cases themselves often show poor quality screen shots and confusing movie synopses, often with spoilers included (thats the worst.."finally, our hero dies, never to re-unite with his beloved.." ) bottom line, in my opinion, the DVD cases are often useless... and I have yet to find a good Hindi film guide that covers movies in depth.... until now! i'm using this site as a guide to which movies i want to see next!!!
