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.

Is it still an 'other' industry in a world dominated by American Cinemas? Bollywood and Its Other(s) aims to compensate for the lack of scholarly literature on Bollywood studies by opening up hitherto unexplored sites or sites that are in formation. One of the most comprehensive volumes on Bollywood so far, it focuses on the aesthetic-philosophical questions of the other, Indian diaspora's negotiations with national identity, alternative reading strategies/research methods, marginal genres (sci-fi, horror), marginal characters (flaneuse, vamps), marginal gender (non-normative sexualities), marginal cinema (Hindi avant-garde), marginal language (Hinglish), and marginal regions (the Kashmir valley).

Bollywood plays an important role in the increased dialogue between Australia and India.
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."

But until now, no one has undertaken a major examination of the ways in which films made in Bombay mediate the urban experience in India. In this analysis of the cinematic city, Ranjani Mazumdar reveals a complex postnationalist world, convulsed by the social crisis of the 1970s and transformed by the experience of globalization in the 1990s. Bombay Cinema leads the reader into the heart or the urban labyrinth in India, revising and deepening our understanding of both the city and cinema" - BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP.

INDIA; STARS. INDIA Summary: The Hindi film industry, among the most prolific in the world, has delighted audiences for decades with its colourful, exquisite and sometimes startling costumes. But are costumes more than just a source of pleasure? This book, the first in-depth exploration of Hindi film costume, contends that they are a unique source of knowledge about issues ranging from Indian taste and fashion to questions of identity, gender and work. Anthropological and film studies approaches combine to analyze costume as the outcome of production processes and as a cinematic device for conveying meaning. Chapters lead from the places where costume is planned and executed to explorations of characterization, the actor body, spectacles of fashion, to the imagining of historical or fantasy worlds through dress, to the power of stardom to launch clothing styles into the public domain. As well as charting the course of film costume as it parallels important trends in cultural history, the book considers the future of Hindi film costume, in the context of new strains of filmmaking that stress unvarnished realism.

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.
