A pioneering book which provides an interface between politics, society and the mass media, it presents a theoretical framework within which all conventional films, can be understood and analyzed.

Cinematic imagery is no longer simple art, but a representation of ' preferred' reality through constructed themes. While the structural compulsions of a society produce a particular kind of cinema, the latter in turn either legitimizes or subverts the hegemonic discourses. Hence the author sees conventional cinema as a sociological and political phenomenon.

Based on an incisive contextual study of trends in the Hindi film industry over the last three decades, the author analyses how cinema as a politically and ideologically loaded statement effectively redefines ideas, beliefs and concepts.
