Indian Movies. The term itself is so broad and vast, that it would be difficult for any search engine to give you accurate results when you search for Indian movies. The reason being that India, being a vast and multi cultural, multi language country, there are thousands of movies which you could call Indian movies. Because of this diversity found in India, Movies made in India have an add-on categorization - which is linked to the state where the movie comes from and the primary language of the movie (which generally is based on the Indian state where the movie was produced). If you go by facts, Indian parliamentary democracy consists of 28 states and 7 union territories. Generally speaking, people from different states in India speak a different language, and when we say different, the difference could be as vast as Chinese and English ! According to the Census of India of 2001, 29 languages are spoken by more than a million native speakers. Which in movie terms means that when you say 'Indian movie', it could be one movie out of thousands.
