Cinema: Images and Issues

 
Bhawana Somaaya (Author)
Synopsis Whenever I'm asked what I enjoy most about my profession, it does not take me time to respond that I'm here, because I like writing and because I love Hindi cinema. And my job provides me with an opportunity to dabble in both. Reproduced in the book are fragmented frames of cinema. Some explored as academic study, while some retained as stubborn memories that refuse to fade. The collective images celebrate an undying passion for the fascinating medium. The concerns for the issues, I admit, came in much later. After one had sufficient exposure and the confidence to disagree and debate. One discovered that the same films evoked different responses and interpretations during different decades of growing up. And perhaps that's the essence of cinema. To break illusions and conjure new images. Compiled in the book are some scattered observations and impressions from an editor's notebook.
