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.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
Rita Wason
I got my order today. It was well packed and looks lovely.
