Description

Sex in Cinema: A History of Female Sexuality in Indian Films is a brave forthright and well-researched book that analyses, and puts into perspective, the portrayal of women in Hindi films.

It is an objective representation of women on celluloid through the generations, from the early films like Pyaasa to the more contemporary, Salaam Namaste.

The book takes up Indian cinema, decade after decade and proceeds to delineate the portrayal of the Indian woman in cinema, and redefines the way many canonical films have been viewed, thought of and enjoyed.
