ASIA Summary: "This book explores the range and dynamism of contemporary Asian cinemas, covering East Asia (China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan), Southeast Asia (Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia), South Asia (Bollywood), and West Asia (Iran), in order to discover what is common about them and to engender a theory or concept of "Asian Cinema". It goes beyond existing work which provides a field survey of Asian cinema, probing more deeply into the field of Asian Cinema, arguing that Asian Cinema constitutes a separate pedagogical subject, and putting forward an alternative cinematic paradigm. The book covers "styles", including the works of classical Asian Cinema masters, and specific genres such as horror films, and Bollywood and Anime, two very popular modes of Asian Cinema; "spaces", including artistic use of space and perspective in Chinese cinema, geographic and personal space in Iranian cinema, the private "erotic space" of films from South Korea and Thailand, and the persistence of the family unit in the urban spaces of Asian big cities in many Asian films; and "concepts" such as Pan-Asianism, Orientalism, Nationalism and Third Cinema. The rise of Asian nations on the world stage has been coupled with a growing interest, both inside and outside Asia, of Asian culture, of which film is increasingly an indispensable component--this book provides a rich, insightful overview of what exactly constitutes Asian Cinema." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographic references and index; Includes filmography ISBN: 9781138815780 Contents: pt.

Bollywood in Australia: Transnationalism and Cultural Production brings together scholars from India and Australia to explore the transnational impact of Bollywood on public spheres in Australia and to assess its contribution to Australian creative industries.
Countries of the West—Switzerland, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand—have gone out of their way to welcome Bollywood production teams, and Singapore and Bangkok are now using Bollywood to showcase an Asian modernity.
In an age when creative, information and services industries propel economic growth, Bollywood and its modalities of production, distribution and reception are seen as important players in global culture-industry networks."

Kramer analyzes the role of Hindi films in the British film market, showing how audiences engage with Bollywood cinema and discussing the ways the image of Bollywood in Britain has been shaped. In contrast to most of the existing books on the subject, which tend to approach Bollywood as something that is made by Asians for Asians, the book also focuses on how Bollywood has been adapted for non-Asian Britons. An analysis of Bollywood as an unofficial brand is combined with in-depth readings of texts including film reviews, the TV show Bollywood Star (2004) and novels and plays with references to the Hindi film industry. On this basis Bollywood in Britain demonstrates that the presentation of Bollywood for British mainstream culture oscillates between moments of approximation and distancing, with a clear dominance of the latter. Despite its alleged transculturality, Bollywood in Britain thus emerges as a phenomenon of difference, distance and Othering"-- BACK COVER BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781501307614 Donation: Senses of Cinema Contents: -- acknowledgments -- 1: Introduction -- 2: What is 'Bollywood'? -- 3: Popular Indian Cinema in Britain - Facts and Figures -- 4: Britain and Indian Diaspora Films - Questions of Nostalgia -- 5: Beyond Films - The Development of the Bollywood Brand -- 6: the (trans)difference of Bollywood : British asians through the lens of 'Bollywood Star' -- 7: representations of the Hindi film industry in British first-hand reports -- 8: the changing image of Bollywood in British film reviews -- 9: Bollywood Adaptations -- 10: Conclusion -- notes -- Filmography -- Bibliography -- Index -- More info

Censorship and sexuality in Bombay cinema / Monika Mehta
Austin, TX: University of Texas, 2011.
Call No: 440.2(540) MEH Author: Mehta, Monika Edition: 1st Source: US Place: Austin, TX Publisher: University of Texas PubDate: 2011 PhysDes: xi, 304 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: SEXUALITY AND THE CINEMA; CENSORSHIP. INDIA; BOLLYWOOD; WOMEN IN FILMS. INDIA; DILWALE DULHANIYA LE JAYENGE (II, Aditya Chopra, ); GUPT GYAN (II, B. K. Adarsh, 1974); KHAL NAYAK (II, Subhash Ghai, 1993) Summary: "India produces an impressive number of films each year in a variety of languages. Here, Monika Mehta breaks new ground by analyzing Hindi films and exploring the censorship of gender and heterosexuality in Bombay cinema. She studies how film censorship on various levels makes the female body and female sexuality pivotal in constructing national identity, not just through the films themselves but also through the heated debates that occur in newspapers and other periodicals. The standard claim is that the state dictates censorship and various prohibitions, but Mehta explores how relationships among the state, the film industry, and the public illuminates censorships' role in identity formation, while also examining how desire, profits, and corruption are generated through the act of censoring.
Committed to extending a feminist critique of mass culture in the global south, Mehta situates the story of censorship in a broad social context and traces the intriguing ways in which the heated debates on sexuality in Bombay cinema actually produce the very forms of sexuality they claim to regulate. She imagines afresh the theoretical field of censorship by combining textual analysis, archival research, and qualitative fieldwork (personal interviews and direct observation of censorship committees). By employing this interdisciplinary methodology and mobilizing Michel Foucault's insights on micropractices, Mehta places concerns of representation, film production, film reception, and state interventions in a productive dialogue. Her analysis reveals how central concepts of film studies, such as stardom, spectacle, genre, and sound, are employed and (re)configured within the ambit of state censorship, thereby expanding the scope of their application and impact." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Based on the author's thesis (doctoral)--University of Minnesota, 2001 -- Includes bibliographical references and index.

INDIA; POPULAR CULTURE AND THE CINEMA.INDIA; SHOLAY (II, Ramesh Sippy, 1975) Summary: Despite the often stereotypical notions of Bollywood, it’s not all weddings, wet saris and running around trees. In the 1970s, Indian cinema gave birth to a new breed of action movie, one that combined its own exuberant traditions with foreign influences like the gritty urban crime thrillers of the New Hollywood, Hong Kong martial arts cinema, and Italian exploitation fare.
This was the domain of hard fighting he-men stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and Feroz Khan and badass, whip-wielding heroines played by the likes of the gorgeous Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, and Rekha.

In Humor in Middle Eastern Cinema, editors Gayatri Devi and Najat Rahman shed light on this tradition, as well as humor and laughter motivated by other intent—including parody, irony, the absurd, burlesque, and dark comedy. Contributors trace the proliferation of humor in contemporary Middle Eastern cinema in the works of individual directors and from the perspectives of genre, national cinemas, and diasporic cinema. Humor in Middle Eastern Cinema explores what humor theorists have identified as an “emancipatory,” “liberatory,” even “revolutionary” function to humor. Among the questions contributors ask are: How does Middle Eastern cinema and media highlight the stakes and place of humor in art and in life? What is its relation to the political? Can humor in cinematic art be emancipatory? What are its limits for its intervention or transformation? Contributors examine the region’s masterful auteurs, such as Abbas Kiarostami, Youssef Chahine, and Elia Suleiman and cover a range of cinematic settings, including Egypt, Iran, Israel, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey. They also trace diasporic issues in the distinctive cinema of India and Pakistan. This insightful collection will introduce readers to a variety of contemporary Middle Eastern cinema that has attracted little critical notice. Scholars of cinema and media studies as well as Middle Eastern cultural history will appreciate this introduction to a complex and fascinating cinema." -- GOOGLE BOOKS Notes: Contains bibliography and filmography -- contains index -- contains list of contributors ISBN: 9780814339374 Contents: Introduction / Gayatri Devi and Najat Rahman -- Humor, loss, and the possibility for politics in recent Palestinian cinema / Najat Rahman -- Strategies of subversion in Ben Ali's Tunisia: allegory and satire in Moncef Dhouib's TV Is Coming / Robert Lang -- Satiric traversals in the comedy of Mehran Modiri: space, irony, and national allegory on Iranian television / Cyrus Ali Zargar -- Ethnic humor, stereotypes, and cultural power in Israeli cinema / Elise Burton -- The laughter of Youssef Chahine / Najat Rahman -- Comedic meditations: war and genre in The Outcasts / Somy Kim -- Humor and the cinematic sublime in Kiarostami's The Wind Will Carry Us / Gayatri Devi -- America the oppressively funny: humor and anti-americanisms in modern Turkish cinema / Perin Gurel -- Laughter across borders: the case of the Bollywood film Tere Bin Laden / Mara Matta More info

INDIA; INDIA; INDIAN CINEMA; WORLD CINEMA Summary: "Few would deny that the most significant weapon in India's cultural and artisitc armory is its avowedly commerical cinema, now known as Bollywood. This anthology aims to portray the "soft" power of Bollywood, which makes it a unique and powerful disseminator of Indian culture and values abroad. The essays in the book examine Bollywood's popularity within and outside South Asia, focusing on its role in international relations and diplomacy. In addition to contributions that directly engage with the notion of soft power, a number of essays in the volume testify to the attractiveness of Bollywood cinema for ethnically diverse groups across the world, probe the reasons for its appeal, and explore its audiences' identification with cinematic narratives. Established and emerging scholars in literature, theater, film, dance, music, media, cultural studies, and sociology from different parts of the world present their views from multidisciplinary perspectives based on case studies from Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Germany, Russia, the US, Senegal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Canada, in addition to India" -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9788132107323 Contents: -- list of tables -- list of abbreviations -- forword by Ishtiaq Ahmed -- acknowledgments -- Chapter 1: Introduction / Anjali Gera Roy -- Brand Bollywood and the new Bollywood film. -- Chapter two: Mainstream Hindi cinema and brand Bollywood: the transformation of a cultural artifact / M.

Written to appeal alike to specialists in adaptation, scholars in allied fields, and general readers, it hearkens back to the foundations of adaptation studies a century and more ago, surveys its ferment of activity over the past twenty years, and looks forward to the future. It considers the very different problems in adapting the classics, from the Bible to Frankenstein to Philip Roth, and the commons, from online mashups and remixes to adult movies. It surveys a dizzying range of adaptations around the world, from Latin American telenovelas to Czech cinema, from Hong Kong comics to Classics Illustrated, from Bollywood to zombies, and explores the ways media as different as radio, opera, popular song, and videogames have handled adaptation. Going still further, it examines the relations between adaptation and such intertextual practices as translation, illustration, prequels, sequels, remakes, intermediality, and transmediality."--Publisher.

SRK and global Bollywood / editors: Rajinder Dudrah, Elke Mader, Bernhard Fuchs

Call No: 81 KHA DUD Author: Dudrah, Rajinder; Mader, Elke; Fuchs, Bernhard Edition: 2015 Source: Book Depository Place: New Delhi Publisher: Oford University Press PubDate: 2015 PhysDes: 356 p. : illus. ; 23 cm Subject: KHAN, SHAH RUKH; BOLLYWOOD Notes: The past few decades of accelerated globalization, characterized by a proliferation of appearances, images, and information, has revealed a strong preoccupation with film stars and celebrity culture in India. Shah Rukh Khan, aka SRK, in this context, has emerged as an important figure. Located within the context of global Bollywood cinema, SRK and his persona have led to a unique experience and understanding of stardom vis-à-vis a liberalized and urban Indian culture. As an actor, entrepreneur, icon for India and Indianness, and as the quintessential diasporic star, his appeal cuts across regional, linguistic, and national boundaries.
A valuable addition to Indian cinema studies, star studies, and scholarly work on SRK, this collection of essays draws attention to the ways in which his stardom acts as an emblem for diasporic and transnational desires in modern India and beyond. Written by eminent and emerging scholars from across the globe, the essays engage with questions about stardom in a media-centred world. In doing so, they create meaning and probe further into the complex world that emerges as a result of SRK being the agent and content of various media practices. -- publisher's blurb ISBN: 9780199460472 Contents: Acknowledgements

INDIA; SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (UK/US, Danny Boyle and Loveleen Tandan, 2008) Summary: "This volume brings together perspectives on Indian popular cinema, universally known as Bollywood now, from different disciplinary and geographical locations to look afresh at national cinemas. It shows how Bollywood cinema has always crossed borders and boundaries: from the British Malaya, Fiji, Guyana, Trinidad, Mauritius, and East and South Africa to the former USSR, West Asia, the UK, the USA, Canada, and Australia. While looking at the meanings of nation, diaspora, home, and identity in cinematic texts and contexts, the essays also examine how localities are produced in the new global process by broadly addressing nationalism, regionalism, and transnationalism, politics, and aesthetics, as well as spectatorship and viewing contexts." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references ISBN: 0198075987; 9780198075981 Contents: pt. 1 Modernity, Globalization, Globality -- 1.Bollywood, Postcolonial Transformation, and Modernity / Bill Ashcroft -- 2.Cultural Flows, Travelling Shows: Bombay Talkies, Global Times / Makarand Paranjape -- 3.Mustard Fields, Exotic Tropes, and Travels through Meandering Pathways: Reframing the Yash Raj Trajectory / Madhuja Mukherjee -- pt. 2 Love Across the Border -- 4.The Lahore Film Industry: A Historical Sketch / Ishtiaq Ahmed -- 5.From Chandigarh to Vancouver: Reimagining Home and Identity in the Films of Harbhajan Mann / Nicola Mooney -- 6.Bollywood, Tollywood, Dollywood: Re-visiting Cross-border Flows and the Beat of the 1970s in the Context of Globalization / Anuradha Ghosh 7.
