Bioscope: A Frivolous History of Bollywood in Ten Chapters

Diptakirti Chaudhuri (Author)

Is kahani mein drama hai, emotion hai, tragedy hai…

A non-linear, light-hearted rollercoaster ride of a book, Bioscope presents a quirky history of Hindi cinema through unconventional, curated ‘lists’ that will delight die-hard fans and novices alike.

Highlighting 10 aspects that give Hindi films their distinctive flavour, the selections - of villainous types and hit pairs, genius compositions and unforgettable lyrics, memorable scripts and filmy fashion from the pre-Independence days right down to the present - pack in trivia, gossip, recommendations and deep insight.

By turns opinionated and emotional - and always superbly entertaining - Bioscope will inspire its readers to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of Hindi cinema.
