Book Description

While 'Indian popular cinema' as if by default has come to mean Bollywood there are other cinemas in India which are at least as rewarding to study the largest and perhaps most intriguing among them coming from South India. Tamil Malayalam Telugu and Kannada cinemas have their own colourful histories megastars and political trajectories.

This anthology is an attempt to do justice to the bewildering variety there is in the body as a whole and addresses this diversity in the only way deemed possible which is to open out the study to different approaches at the same time to get a comprehensive look at South Indian cinema as never before undertaken.
