Item description for Indian Cinema: The Bollywood Saga by Dinesh Raheja, Jitendra Kothari & Ismail Merchant...

Bollywood, the Hindi film industry started with just one film, Raja Harishchandra, in 1913. By the end of the century, however, it had grown into a creative and financial behemoth with the intervening decades witnessing technological innovations that were to change the face of the film industry. Today, Bollywood produces more than 100 films a year and entertains billions of people around the globe. Indian Cinema: The Bollywood Saga documents this incredible story of Hindi films. The book takes the reader on a chronologically-charted odyssey through each epoch of this historic and dramatic journey, examining and analyzing the benchmarks of the vibrant changes that marked each passing erathe early silent years, the excitement at the introduction of sound, the gradual seeping in of colour into film images, the fashioning of eternal classics, right up to the post millennial glitzkrieg of mega-budget ventures balanced on the cusp of art and commerce. Few stories are as rich or as fascinating. Indian Cinema: The Bollywood Saga recaptures the romance of the past and the pragmatism of the present for all those who love Hindi films.

Reviews - What do customers think about Indian Cinema: The Bollywood Saga?

Badly Written, Poorly Thought Out  May 17, 2006
If I can prevent anyone from wasting time and money on this book, I will be pleased. It is written on the level of a bad high school newspaper. Moreover, although it is a coffee table book, clearly intended for English speaking readers who are not familiar with Indian cinema, it is not organized to translate the Indian film titles into English, and it rattles off those incomprehensible names without ever describing what the film is about. IT IS NOT WRITTEN BY ISMAIL MERCHANT! He wrote the foreward; and I don't know why he did that.
This book is high quality and excellent  Sep 3, 2005
If you're a serious Bollywood lover, you will find this a valuable volume.
