Bollywood et les autres - Voyage au coeur du cinéma indien
Ophelie Wiel

1896: Bombay. The Lumière Brothers organize the first cinematographic screening in India.
1913: Dadasaheb Phalke makes the first Indian feature film.
2011: India, with 1,000 films a year, has become the world’s largest movie producer, whose stars cause riots from Bombay to London and L.A. to Tokyo.

Indian cinema has never attracted so much hype, yet how much do we really know about it? Why are there so few kisses on screen? How does Princess Sita inspire Indian directors to come up with such powerful yet naive heroines? How come Gandhi never used to go to the movies? What are the inescapable rules of a Bollywood film? What are its chances compared to a made-in-Hollywood production?
The answers to all these questions and more can be found inside this book, dedicated to a century of Indian cinema, both a guide and a lushly illustrated coffee-table book, with stunning photos and original illustrations. From Delhi to Bombay, Bangalore to Chennai, Satyajit Ray to Shahrukh Khan, and musical comedies to historical epics, Bollywood and the Others is an indispensable reference at a time when all eyes are watching the feats of the most-populated democracy in the world.
