Lag Ja Gale: Indian Conventional Cinema’s Tryst With Hitler

Fareed Kazmi (Author)

Lag Ja Gale: Indian Conventional Cinema's Tryst With Hitler, is a classic 'leap of the imagination', as it showcases the intimate connect between seemingly disparate worlds. It stems from the realization that like Hitler, increasingly, leaders all over the world, are coming to power riding the crest of massive mass support, by brazenly flaunting an aggressive majoritarian agenda, deeply imbued with hate for the 'other', and openly dismissive of all democratic institutions and values. Indian conventional cinema, operating within the formulaic hero/villain binary, not only replicates but also validates this discourse. Lag Ja Gale also delineates the processes and mindscape which engineer the emergence of the reel/real life Hero, with all its attendant veneration and mass adulation. Based on extensive research, it foregrounds the commonalities/overlap between the Hitlerian and the filmic Weltanschauung (worldview). This book will be of interest to students of history, sociology, psychology, politics, international relations, media/communication/film studies, Indian cinema as well as the general reader.
