India is home to Bollywood - the largest film industry in the world. Movie theaters are said to be the "temples of modern India," with Bombay producing nearly 800 films per year that are viewed by roughly 11 million people per day. In Bollywood Cinema, Vijay Mishra argues that Indian film production and reception is shaped by the desire for national community and a pan-Indian popular culture. Seeking to understand Bollywood according to its own narrative and aesthetic principles and in relation to a global film industry, he views Indian cinema through the dual methodologies of postcolonial studies and film theory. Mishra discusses classics such as Mother India (1957) and Devdas (1935) and recent films including Ram Lakhan (1989) and Khalnayak (1993), linking their form and content to broader issues of national identity, epic tradition, popular culture, history, and the implications of diaspora.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: sehr gut, Universitat Wien (Institut fur Theater-, Film- und Medienwissenschaften), 70 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Diese Arbeit mochte zwei Mythologien, die in Indien omniprasent sind, auf einen Nenner bringen: Zum einen die alten Mythen aus dem Ramayana und Mahabharata und zum anderen die Mythen, die die Filme hervorbringen und die in der Vorstellungswelt Indiens einen ahnlichen Status besitzen. Mythologische Material soll als Einfluss auf Geschichten und Narration der Filme und als Schlussel zur Interpretation gezeigt werden. Auch die Manipulation mythologischen Materials fur politische Zwecke wird thematisiert, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Arbeit sollen zwei Themengebiete vereint werden, die einen wichtigen Bestandteil der Kultur Indiens ausmachen: Auf der einen Seite die uralten Mythen des Landes, die vor allem aus dem Ramayana und Mahabharata stammen und fest im Kulturgut verankert sind, und auf der anderen Seite die popularen Hindifilme, deren Stoffe mitunter bereits einen ganz ahnlichen Status besitzen und deren Helden und Geschichten selbst zu einer neuen Art der Mythologie geworden sind und bisweilen ins allgemeine Gedankengut ubergehen. Der Kult um die Filmstars ist in Indien derart ubermachtig und allgegenwartig, dass dieser Vergleich durchaus gerechtfertigt scheint. Die Gotter der Leinwand sind omniprasent und uberlebensgross blicken sie den Menschen auf Indiens Strassen von riesigen Plakatwanden entgegen. Die Mythologie Indiens soll als omniprasente kulturelle Konstante gezeigt werden, die in der Gedankenwelt Indiens fest verankert ist. Im Film gibt es eine Reihe von Charakteristika, deren Einfluss aus der Welt der indischen Mythologie stammt. Diese Einflusse sollen in Folge erlautert und an Filmbeispielen analysiert werden. Obwohl das Genre des mythologischen Films in den funfziger Jahren des zwanzigsten Jahrhund

From Bombay (Mumbai) and other production centres on the Indian subcontinent, Indian popular cinema has travelled globally for nearly a century, culminating in the Bollywood-inspired, Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. This volume brings together perspectives on Indian popular cinema, universally known as Bollywood now, from different disciplinary and geographical locations to look afresh at national cinemas. It shows how Bollywood cinema has always crossed borders and boundaries: from the British Malaya, Fiji, Guyana, Trinidad, Mauritius, and East and South Africa to the former USSR, West Asia, the UK, the USA, Canada, and Australia. While looking at the meanings of nation, diaspora, home, and identity in cinematic texts and contexts, the essays also examine how localities are produced in the new global process by broadly addressing nationalism, regionalism, and transnationalism, politics and aesthetics, as well as spectatorship and viewing contexts.

Hindi Cinema is full of instances of repetition of themes, narratives, plots and characters. By looking at 60 years of Hindi cinema, this book focuses on the phenomenon as a crucial thematic and formal code that is problematic when representing the national and cinematic subject. It reflects on the cinema as motivated by an ongoing crisis of self-formation in modern India. The book looks at how cinema presents liminal and counter-modern identities emerging within repeated modern attempts to re-enact traumatic national events so as to redeem the past and restore a normative structure to happenings. Establishing structure and event as paradigmatic poles of a historical and anthropological spectrum for the individual in society, the book goes on to discuss cinematic portrayals of violence, gender embodiment, religion, economic transformations and new globalised Indianness as events and sites of liminality disrupting structural aspirations. After revealing the impossibility of accurate representation of incommensurable and liminal subjects within the historiography of the nation-state, the book highlights how Hindi cinema as an ongoing engagement with the nation-state as a site of eventfulness draws attention to the problematic nature of the thematic of nation. It is a useful study for academics of Film Studies and South Asian Culture.

While we have become familiar with the idea of "Bollywood" here in the West, we know little about the industry's films beyond a certain celebration of kitsch. Bollywood, the latest in Wallflower Press's Short Cuts introductory series, surveys this style of filmmaking from its origins in colonial times to the present, tracing its impact on both the Indian and global imagination. Chapters explore the history and workings of the industry, the narratives and aesthetics of its films, varieties within the genre, the cultural connotations of specific characters, its larger-than-life stars, and its hybrid and surprising fan cultures. Readings of popular and widely available films illustrate the importance of the cinema's conventions, which range from romantic clichés to a constant negotiation between tradition and modernity.
