Bombay Talkie is Merchant Ivory’s affectionate, bemused view of Bollywood – India’s huge dream factory. The film is like a brightly coloured sumptuous Indian sweet covered in gold foil, and cameraman Subrata Mitra’s ravishing photography has never been surpassed in any other of James Ivory Films. The story, set off by elaborate studio numbers, is a melodrama echoing those of Bombay’s Mass-audience movies and the sexy best sellers of the film’s heroine, America authoress Lucia lane (Jennifer Kendal). Visiting India in search of “new material”, she becomes romantically involved with handsome movie star, Vikram (Shashi Kapoor, Sammy and Rosie Get Laid, Shakespeare Wallah, Heat and Dust). When that doesn’t work out, she flees to an ashram to take up the spiritual life. That also – hilariously – doesn’t work out, and the ill-fated couple get together again with explosive results.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
