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

Dear IMDb and users,

Recently IMDb showing Indian movie contents and trends by default because I located in India. Unfortunately, I do not follow and watch much of Indians movies and serials. So I would like to see IMDb by default for US or UK. Can anyone here can guide me to set it like that?

Thank you.

There is this tracker thingy that shows all the local shows whenever I open IMDB. I don't want that shit. The shows here are badder than a dump of your turds. Why the frog do you want that in there?

I come to IMDB for information on international films, not Indian Films. Suddenly my home page is all about Indian movies.I am not able to change the settings in my account, in-spite of choosing films from USA. Please guide.

Dear Col Needham, 

I have been an IMDB user out of India for more than 15 years, and hyperbole aside, the web version of the IMDB website is awful. English speaking Indians DO NOT visit the IMDB for the latest knowledge on Indian cinematics, rather they are drawn to the site for the vast database of mostly foreign productions. That does not mean that it is wrong of IMDB to research and document Indian productions, it should. However, it's clear from the general body of comments that the forced inclusion of Indian cinema on the homepage is quite disturbing and, frankly renders the front page useless to most of us. We don't come here for vernacular language films, that's not the modus operandi of IMDB, which ought to remain focused on Western productions. 

Furthermore, IMDB's response to this page has been pitiful. There is not a line of text from anyone representing IMDB that suggests that the vast sentiment on this thread has been acknowledged. Poor poor disinterested customer support. 

Best Regards, 

Varun
