    the rest of Indian film?  Perhaps with the influx of Indian film to the US, the term has gotten misused or  muddied, but not so long ago "Bollywood" was just a part of Indian film.  Bollywood has been a high volume, commercial focused industry, based in Mumbai.

    The best of Indian film wouldn't be catalogued with it - like the work of Shyam Benegal, Mrinal Sen, Satyajit Ray, etc.  I also wouldn't consider Mira Nair as a Bollywood director.
