Cultural Writing. Film Studies. Asian Studies. Edited by Gurbir Jolly, Zenia Wadhwani, and Deborah Barretto. ONCE UPON A TIME IN BOLLYWOOD presents an extravaganza of essays on globalization and contemporary Hindi cinema ("Bollywood"). The wide-ranging analytic strategies in the collection--including ethnographic self-reflection, literary comparison, economic contextualization, and biographic study--bear witness to Hindi cinema's aesthetically elaborate and politically entangled treatment of postcolonial concerns. Together, these essays invite fresh, critically informed engagements with many of the key issues and creative tensions that continue to shape the world's most prolific film industry. For connoisseurs and critics of Hindi cinema alike, ONCE UPON A TIME IN BOLLYWOOD presents stirring insights into popular culture.
