Pages : 464 pages
Rating Book: 4.3/5 (3 users)

Download or read book Cinemas Dark and Slow in Digital India written by Lalitha Gopalan and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2021-03-16 with total page 464 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book provides a sustained engagement with contemporary Indian feature films from outside the mainstream, including Aaranaya Kaandam, I.D., Kaul, Chauthi Koot, Cosmic Sex, and Gaali Beeja, to undercut the dominance of Bollywood focused film studies. Gopalan assembles films from Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Trivandrum, in addition to independent productions in Bombay cinema, as a way of privileging understudied works that deserve critical attention. The book uses close readings of films and a deep investigation of film style to draw attention to the advent of digital technologies while remaining fully cognizant of ‘the digital’ as a cryptic formulation for considering the sea change in the global circulation of film and finance. This dual focus on both the techno-material conditions of Indian cinema and the film narrative offers a fulsome picture of changing narratives and shifting genres and styles.

Download or read book Breaking Free written by VAASANTHI and published by Harper Collins. This book was released on 2022-06-21 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A magical storyteller -- SHASHI DESHPANDE 'Doesn't this life strike you as shameful?' 'I am an artist. That's the only thing that matters to me.' Kasturi and Lakshmi are born into the devadasi clan. While Kasturi thinks of nothing other than the joy she experiences when she's dancing before the deity in the temple, Lakshmi is troubled by the treatment dasis receive from society, the secretive manner of her father's visits to their house, and his reluctance to acknowledge her publicly as his daughter. To the surprise of those around her, instead of learning to dance, a frustrated and angry Lakshmi insists on getting an education, and becomes a doctor. As their paths diverge, the differences in their opinions cause a rift in Kasturi and Lakshmi's relationship. But when tragedy strikes, Kasturi's faith in tradition is shaken and she finds herself turning to Lakshmi once again. Set against the rising clamour for India's independence, Breaking Free is a nuanced and thought-provoking story of three generations of women and the effect history and memory--and secrets--have on their lives. Brilliantly translated by N. Kalyan Raman, it brings Vaasanthi's Tamil masterpiece to an entirely new readership. Plunges the reader into the varied and turbulent world of devadasis, bringing the complexities of their history to life -- GITANJALI KOLANAD A powerful story, told with clarity and insight, about some of the young girls who suffered and the few who fought back -- KAVERY NAMBISAN
