Baliwood: The film industry of India, also called 'Bollywood.' Rhymes with Hollywood. India was once credited with having the largest film industry in the world. If you count number of films (roughly 800 per year) made, not cost of production, it beats Hollywood cold. Also a notoriously cheesy style of belly dancing and Sound of Music intertwined.
That film is so Baliwood.

"Monsoon Wedding" is widely considered not to be a genuine Baliwood style movie.

Balinese film industry. Very popular in Indonesia. Movies like "hey dudes, where's my traditionnal boat?!" and "Traditionnal dance with balinese wolves".
You're wrong, my old chap, Phyl DID star in "Da revenge of the traditionnal banner from Bali".

Baliwood is not a real place, it is just a term used to decribe the growing Indian Film Industry.
Those movies from Baliwood are supposed to be pretty good, but i'm a War movie fan myself.

bad spelling of Bollywood, the Indian film industry (a la "Hollywood").
Did you see that new Bollywood movie with all the crzy singing and dancing? Amazing!
