The 10 longest films in Hindi cinema

August 16, 2006
Our Hollywood cousins call their movies long when they stretch over the 90-minute mark. But here, in India, we're used to long films. Two-hour English extravaganzas are considered excessive, while the average Hindi flick regularly clocks in at about 3 hours, songs and all.

Sometimes though, even that isn't enough. Here's a look at some really, really long movies, stretching comfortably beyond the 200-minute mark, even nearing four hours.

How come? Self-indulgent directors, lazy editors, or simply the need of the subject? Here's a brief look at 10 films that should ideally come with free coffee. Feel free to suggest more.
