Description

With more than a thousand films produced annually in over fifteen languages India is acknowledged as the largest producer of motion pictures in the world.

50 Indian Film Classics provides detailed accounts of the most important Indian films beginning with Prem Sanyas (1925) to Rang De Basanti (2006) in languages ranging from Bengali and Hindi to Manipuri and Malayalam representing a whole gamut of themes : from the 1930s mythological Sant Tukaram to the politically radical Calcutta 71, from art-house favorites like Uski Roti and Mukhamukham to blockbusters like Sholay and Lagaan.

These perceptive essays introduce the reader to the many moods that inform Indian cinema, the austerity of Pather Panchali, the lavishness of Hum Aapke Hain Koun...!, the solemnity of Samskara' and the fun and frolic of Amar, Akbar Anthony.

Illustrated with rare posters and stills this is an invaluable guide to the most significant cinema India has ever produced.
