Portugal's biggest film festival kicks off with a special focus on successful Bollywood films from the past five decades. The 26th Oporto International Film Festival, which will run until March 5, will feature 12 hit films from India in what has been billed as the biggest restrospective of movies from that country ever held in Portugal. Among the Indian films to be screened are the 2002 musical "Devdas," a classic tale of doomed love set in a make-believe world of glittering palaces which is the most expensive Hindi commercial film ever made.
