I am ok if someone says IMDB reflects the POV of intellects/pseudo intellects/educated/ access to Internet Indians but if you tell me that because some Bollywood films are there in IMDb Top 250, they are “universally acclaimed” or “crossover” then you are fooling yourself. No one cares about bw movies beyond the desis and NRIs.
Here are some of the links to the reviews to Aamir khans Top 250 IMDb movies:
Just go through the reviews. You wil hardly find any review from a non-asian. Almost all reviews are either from Indians, Pakistanis, NRIs living in US, Canada and so on. So this false impression that bcos its in Top 250 its a “universally acclaimed” movie is a total lie.
Now read the links of these films:
The Raid 2 (indonesian ) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2265171/reviews?ref_=tt_ov_rt
Oldboy (Korean) : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364569/reviews?ref_=tt_ov_rt
Tom Yum Goong (Thailand) : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0427954/reviews?ref_=tt_ov_rt
Almost all reviews are from foreigners /locals of US, UK, netherlands and so on. hardly much reviews from their own countries. This is called a true “crossover” universally acclaimed films.
