Formatted Contents Note:
Introduction : reframing Bollywood -- Bollywood and its implied viewers -- the Bollywood song and dance, or making a culinary theatre from dung-cakes and dust : can the Bollywood film speak to the subaltern? -- Ho naa ho : the emergence of a homosexual subtext in Bollywood -- Usage problem : simulation and hyper-assimilation in the (crossover) Bollywood film -- Conclusion : travelling Bollywood.
Summary, etc.:
This book combines multiple theoretical approaches to provide a fresh perspective on Bollywood and challenges the homogenizing tendencies in much of the ongoing scholarship in the field. It covers five areas of controversial theorization: the religious frame, the musical frame, the subaltern frame, the (hetero)sexual frame and the 'crossover' frame. By deconstructing each of these hegemonic paradigms, it reshapes the understanding of a Bollywood film and restructures its relationships with multiple disciplines including film and theatre studies, postcolonial studies, South Asian studies, queer
