Book Description Orient BlackSwan, New Delhi, India, 2010. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Towering billboards featuring photorealistic portraits of popular cinema stars and political leaders dominated the cityscape of Chennai, throughout the second half of the twentieth century. Studying the manufacture and reception of these billboards—known locally as banners and cutouts—within the context of the entwined histories of the cinema industry and political parties in Tamil Nadu, Preminda Jacob reveals the broader significance of these fragments of visual culture beyond their immediate function as pretty pieces of advertising. The author analyses the juxtaposition of cinematic and political imagery in the extra-cinematic terrain of Chennai’s city streets and how this placement was pivotal to the elevation of regional celebrities to cult status. When interpreting these images and discussing their political and cultural resonance within the Tamil Nadu community, Jacob draws upon multiple perspectives to give appropriate context to this fascinating form of visual media.Printed Pages: 320.
