Some hate it, others love it. For some, it is a bad influence on all Indians, for others, it is what holds them together: Bollywood, Indian's dream factory.For 70 years it has been enchanting people, now almost 2 billion a year, and it continues to grow.The film is a declaration of love for the phenomenon of Bollywood with unique behind-the-scenes footage, excerpts from the most famous films and of course all the stars in the Bollywood firmament, from Amitabh Bachchan to Katrina Kaif and Aamir Khan.A best of Bollywood -- it's rare for a documentary to have so much colour, dance and music!
