This is a list of films produced by the Indian Hindi-language film industry, popularly known Bollywood, based in Mumbai ordered by year and decade of release. Although "Bollywood" films are generally listed under the Hindi language, most are in Hindustani and many in Urdu as well as Hindi, with partial Bhojpuri, Punjabi and occasionally other languages. Bollywood films can achieve national distribution across at least 22 of India's 29 states.[1]

Speakers of Hindi, Bhojpuri, Urdu, and Punjabi understand the mixed language usage of Bollywood thus extending the viewership to people all over the Indian subcontinent (throughout India and its neighboring countries). Here are some examples - partly Bhojpuri: PK, Panchlait, Manjhi – The Mountain Man and Jabariya Jodi; partly English: Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Dhoom 2, Partner, Om Shanti Om, Kismat Konnection, Kambakkht Ishq and Love Aaj Kal; partly Urdu: Fanaa, Saawariya, Jodhaa Akbar and Kurbaan; partly Punjabi: Jab We Met, Singh Is Kinng, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Love Aaj Kal, Dil Bole Hadippa!, Band Baaja Baaraat, Patiala House, Phillauri and Thande Koyle. Veer-Zaara and Mausam is an equal mix of Urdu, Punjabi and a little bit of Hindi.
