Abstract: Students are exposed to a variety of sources of information and entertainment during their undergraduate years, which presents opportunities since students are interacting with ideas and concepts in different settings. One such setting is international movies. Economic development is focused on developing countries; hence, when movies from developing countries are used in the classroom, they portray reality more vividly. This helps students learn about the developmental challenges confronting such countries. This paper looks at international movies in an economic development class, specifically Kollywood movies. The instructor was involved in the choice of Kollywood movies and provided guidance for each one.
Keywords: Kollywood movies; cross-cultural; Tamil; economic development; Bollywood.
