Hailed as the definitive study of Indian film when it was first published in 1963, this book remains an unparalleled account of the film industry that outproduces that of any other country. The authors reveal a fascinating show business pageant that interweaves constantly with political and social history. In this new edition the authors have enriched and updated the story, depicting the continuing growth of the large public-sector documentary industry as well as the vast private-sector fiction industry, its increasing societal influence and the emergence of a challenging "new wave." The book discusses the significance of the films of India's great film creator, Satyajit Ray, as well as many other talented figures. Indian Film also depicts the industry's sharp contrasts, with works ranging from the noblest to the most preposterous - all reflecting the deep tensions of Indian society as a whole.
