IMDb India

We are excited to bring to you an IMDb experience catered to the interests of the millions of movie & TV fans in India. Today we launched www.imdb.com/india. Now, in addition to using IMDb as the authoritative destination for international films and TV shows, you can rely on us as an entertainment destination that will keep you up to date on the latest and greatest Indian movies.

Bookmark www.imdb.com/india/trending to stay current with “What’s Trending in India” across upcoming movies and celebrities,updated daily.

You can now plan your movie nights based on the “IMDb TopRated Indian Movies” list that includes movies in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam,Telugu, and Bengali. The list is ranked by a rigorous formula which includes the number of ratings each movie received among other criteria. To complement the movie recommendations based on inputs from IMDb users, you will also discover recommendations based on our editors picks. Our editors put me through an Amitabh Bachchan quiz today. I scored a measly 5/10 – clearly I have more BigB movie watching to do.

I am proud and humbled to see millions of people across the world using IMDb every day. IMDb was born out of my personal film diary and lifelong obsession with cinema. IMDb’s first version was the simple database I created on my computer of every film I saw since the age of 13. I encourage you to visit IMDb and join the community of passionate movie fans across the world.I have 234 Indian movies on my watchlist currently, and my most memorable Indian film is 3 Idiots (2009). What is yours? Tell us using the hashtag #IMDbIndia

Col Needham,


CEO & Founder

I hate all the bollywood widgets and bollywood trending sections on the home page. I'm Indian doesn't mean that I like bollywood. Atleast you should add an option to change content location like YouTube does!!!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Imdb's home page stories are more oriented to Indian movies for me..

I am from India. For the past few weeks, Imdb has started to make me home page more India oriented. Everywhere I see, everything is related to Bollywood. I don't know how to get the US version of the home page. It's not language setting, it is something related to my origin country.
Also, I am not going on "imdb.com/india", simply opening "imdb.com". I want my old settings back.
I tried but could not find anything in settings.
Please help me.

My IMDB home page shows movies and news related to India as my country is India. I want to disable this and i want the original international Imdb home page. There are many widgets appear for the indian movie industry. i dont want those contry specific updates. How to disable this. 

Going to site preference and ensuring 'Title display country' to original does not help.

Read both replies of their employee named Kurt. Basically, they just assumed every Indian only ever watches Bollywood and so did not bother to give an option to see the international website. If you are from India, you have to view Bollywood because its what they want us to watch. In spite of almost everyone in this thread asking for an opt-out since over 3 weeks, they have not bothered to implement it.

I am a software designer. It does not take this long to implement an opt-out, no matter how massive the site. This is another example of a western country wanting to profit from us but still treating us like 3rd class citizens.

Rated Indian movies, Anticipated Indian movies, Indian stars through the years are all really annoying amidst Hollywood updates. The site is losing its originality. IMDb was well received only because of its world movie database info. Flooding with Indian movie information is unanimously disliked, as you can see from the posts here. I searched for this page to raise a ticket. I am hoping to see the old IMDb we all loved. I am sorry to have lowered my rating of IMDb app in Playstore. We will search for a movie if required, please remove Indian updates. We have enough knowledge about it already. Thanks.

Is it over? .. or is it just me?

I just checked IMDb on 5 web browsers..

Film title pages for projects and actors/people no longer have that Bollywood rubbish on them?

Is it AdBlocker messing with me still?.... Can't be...

Safari, Firefox, Chrome,... Opera*, Opera Neon*.. all the same!

*Automatically VPN'ed browsers (so don't count, as IMDb only pissed India off the past month and not Planet Earth).

Is this.... a back-track?

Kurt, bhai! Please say it is so!

Kurt ji... please say IMDb won't do it again also, please, yaar?


*disclaimer*
Or is it just me (with my ad-blocking incompetence or my ISP, tonight) ... and it will all go back to Bollywood Trends tomorrow morning?

Nope, it's even worse today. They have tons of Tamil films plastered there because it's Pongal.
