My application needs the details of All Indian movies. I can't take it from IMDB or OMDB because the number of Indian movies is too less there. I need to fetch it from Wikipedia. Freebase is deprecated now and I have heard DBPedia has many less entries. The only option left is Wikidata's query API. But it is getting too tough to form the query. Couldn't understand through Wikidata's 1 page api documentation. Tried the following query, but it returned just 2118 entries, which is too less compared to what we can see in Wikipedia (10000+) entries.


Can anybody help me in fetching the details of all Indian movies from wikipedia? It would be a great help

You can get all Wikidata items which are:

with the following SPARQL query:

SELECT ?movie ?movieLabel  WHERE {
   ?movie wdt:P495 wd:Q668 ;
          wdt:P31 wd:Q11424 .
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }

The query returns 26,007 movies in 2022 (up from 21,595 entries when the original answer was written in 2015).
