Description
About the Book

This book examines the temporal and spatial flows of Indian Popular cinema from Bombay (Mumbai) and other production centres in the Indian subcontinent to widely dispersed spaces of consumption for nearly a century. With essays by eminent scholars, it brings together perspectives on ‘Bollywood cinema from diverse disciplinary and geographical locations to bear upon notions of nationalism, regionalism, and transnalism; politics and aesthetics; and exhibition practices and spectatorship in order to re-conceptualize the understanding of national cinemas.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
