Which country has the largest film industry in the world? If you think it’s the USA, you're wrong. The answer is, in fact, India. Nearly 3,000 films were in India in 2009, around 1,300 of which were full-length feature films.

The most popular films are action, comedy and romantic musicals. The musicals are productions full of colourful costumes and scenery with huge casts, including many dancers and singers. lmagine, one Indian film had seventy-one songs in it! That's a lot of to remember!

Film critics say that most of these films tend to be predictable they have very similar situations, but it seems that the public doesn’t mind at all. In fact, millions of people both in India and the rest of the world are huge fans and can't wait for new films to be .

Indian cinema is often referred to as ‘Bollywood’, but it turns that the term is only correct for Hindi-language films; there are many other languages spoken in India. The name ‘Bollywood’ is a combination of Bombay (the city now called Mumbai) and Hollywood, but Bollywood isn’t a real place.

So if you're ever in India, don’t try to find it!

(Adapted from Close-up B1 Workbook)

A smart phone is a mobile phone built on a mobile operating system, with more advanced computing abilities than a common phone. The first smart phones enabled users to send and receive emails. Later models added the function of portable media players, pocket video cameras, and GPS navigation units to form one multi-use device. Many modern smart phones also include touchscreens and web browsers that display web pages.

A recent report says we spend an average of two hours and 40 minutes each day looking at a smart phone. That doesn’t mean making calls, but playing phone games and browsing the Web.

Nowadays we always find people checking emails in a restaurant, taking a picture of the food when it arrives, or checking a message during a conversation instead of traditional communication. It’s no secret that our lives are being affected by our smart phone’s obsession.

However, this phenomenon has never been presented so vividly as in the short film I Forgot My Phone. Despite only being online on YouTube for a few days, it has already been viewed more than 10.5 million times. Whether it will be screened in the cinema remains to be seen.

Ironically, YouTube’s data show that the site gets a billion views per day from mobile devices, so a lot of those people watched it on their phones.

The short film, written by and starring actress Charlene deGuzman, shows that people obsessed with being more connected to others through their smartphones than who they are physically with in the real world. To a certain extent, we all do it.

GPS technology made its debut in the first smart phones.

Many people use smart phones while eating out.

The short film ‘I Forgot My Phone’ will be released theatrically soon.

  • Charlene deGuzman wrote and stars in ‘I Forgot My Phone’.
