9780198067955: Cinemas of South India: Culture, Resistance, and Ideology

This book looks at the different ways in which cinema from south India is organized and structured. Broadly focusing on Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu films, the essays explore the different ideologies within the tradition of films, film industries, and 'filmwoods'. How these ideologies within and outside the contexts of film industries construct ideas and images of identity related to language, gender, region, and politics among others? How these in turn are very entrenched in notions of 'culture'? These are among several other questions the contributors--established theoreticians of film studies and emerging scholars--address. Locating the debate away from the Bollywood/Hindi cinema-nation framework, the volume suggests that a single framework or a framework that polarizes Hindi cinema and 'other' cinemas is too narrow for studying cinemas of India. The Introduction by Sathya Prakash and Sowmya Dechamma looks at all these issues and reviews existing studies on cinemas of south India.

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2010. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. With around 800 films per year, India is the leading producer of filmed entertainment in the world. Interestingly, the Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam film industries––the major four in south India––make up over half the share. This collection of diverse but interconnected essays provides a fresh approach to understanding cinemas of south India. Considering cinema from various language-cultures, this volume discusses issues ranging from identity politics and minority discourse to re-makes and the politics of gender. Instead of focusing on language, or nation, or region, which have dominated discussions on films, this volume looks at ideologies within traditions of films and film industries to explore ideas and images related to language, identity, gender, communities, and politics. The essays look at culture in terms of conventional and transforming norms of societal politics, and more importantly in terms of cultures of cinema: of production, viewing, stardom, and film songs, among others. The comprehensive Introduction surveys all the issues and reviews existing studies on cinemas of south India.
