Once Upon a Time in Bollywood
The Global Swing in Hindi Cinema
edited by Gubir Jolly, Zenia Wadhwani, and Deborah Barretto
a Time in Bollywood presents an extravaganza of essays
on globalization and contemporary Hindi cinema
(“Bollywood”). The wide-ranging analytic strategies in the
collection—including ethnographic self-reflection, literary
comparison, economic contextualization, and biographic study
– bear witness to Hindi cinema’s aesthetically elaborate and
politically entangled treatment of postcolonial concerns.
Together, these essays invite fresh, critically informed
engagements with many of the key issues and creative
tensions that continue to shape the world’s most prolific
film industry. For connoisseurs and critics of Hindi cinema
alike, Once Upon a Time in Bollywood presents
stirring insights into popular culture.
"Overall, this collection is ideal for the reader who enjoys Bollywood films but also has a keen desire to learn about the theories and concepts that make the industry what it is."
