Review:

This collection of articles covers all the axes of Indian cinema from its beginnings to the present day, reflected through 24 of its most important films. The contributions provide diverse and eclectic views of the history and current state of Indian regional cinema, covering quintessential topics as stardom, politics, and the relation between the state and the film industry. With its invaluable contributions by both Indian and non-Indian specialists working in a variety of areas ranging from film studies and filmmaking to social sciences, this volume will certainly appeal not only to cinema studies scholars but also to film industry professionals, and is an indispensable complement to canonical studies of Indian cinema studies. (Barbara Lorey de Lacharrière, FIPRESCI)

...an interesting and useful book. (Keith Withall Media Education Journal)
