While I agree to a certain extent, that's not completely true. From
the point of view of many non-Indians, Bollywood movies simply suck.
It's a matter of cultural habits and expectations. Westerners eat
ketchup for example, because of cultural habits. Most anyone else in
the world without these habits thinks that ketchup is gross,
disgusting, and tastes horrible.
There's an aold saying "Don't ascribe to maliciousness what's better
explained by stupidity."

And "free for me and my cronies, but with trade barriers for
everyone and everything else"
e.g. Canada-US softwood lumber.
