Unruly Cinema 

History, Politics, and Bollywood
Rini Bhattacharya Mehta

 

"A rigorous and monumental historical study of Bombay-produced Hindi cinema, which addresses the paradoxes of Bollywood's histories in highly engaging as well as truly enlightening ways. This is an essential study of Indian popular cinema and its indomitability."
--Catherine Grant, coauthor of The Videographic Essay: Criticism in Sound and Image
