Filming Horror: Hindi Cinema, Ghosts and Ideologies

 
Meraj Ahmed Mubarki (Author)
Synopsis

This book seeks to study the horror genre of Hindi cinema in all its forms and expressions. Analyzing more than 80 horror films from Mahal (1949) to Ragini MMS2 (2014), it uncovers narrative strategies, frames unique approaches of investigation and reviews the revolutions taking place within this genre.

It argues that Hindi horror cinema, which lies at the intersection of myths, ideology and dominant socio-religious thoughts, reveals three major strands of narrative constructs, each corresponding to the way the nation has been imagined at different times in post-colonial India. Also it intends to demonstrate how this genre, along with its subsets, provides us with the means to contemplate the nation and its representation.
