Here is your chance to vote for the best Bollywood movies of 2019. This task is easier said than done because Indian cinema pumps out more movies per year than any other country in the world. Their output even puts Hollywood to shame. Many of these pictures are exported to North America, where several of them have become popular. Two of the best 2019 Bollywood movies, Gully Boy and Uri: The Surgical Strike, both made over $4 million at the box office, despite playing in fewer than 300 theaters, according to Box Office Mojo. Those are some impressive numbers.

Most people probably associate long running times and musical numbers with Indian cinema. The truth, though, is that the greatest Bollywood movies of 2019 come in many genres. Some do have music and romance, others are war dramas or comedies. There are animated features and thrillers, too. Audiences around the world enjoy the variety of Bollywood cinema, as well as the showmanship that routinely goes into its productions.
