What makes Bollywood films unusual?

Scene from a Bollywood film

Bollywood films are really colourful and crammed with singing, dancing and loads of costume changes.

Romance is big, and the films usually stick to a formula of boy meets girl, they fall in love and then struggle for family approval.

There's also usually a hero, a heroine, a vamp and a comedy sidekick.
