Fragmented Frames: Reflections of a Critic

 
Bhawana Somaaya (Author)
Synopsis From the advent of moving images more than 100 years ago to the multiple genres and mega projects of today, Indian cinema has really come a long way. The audience that earlier discarded this medium as a "world of make-believe" is now akin to critics whose verdict determines the success of a film. Even writing on cinema, once referred to as "yellow journalism" confined to the glossies, has transformed into a serious and respectable profession. What's more, it has even infiltrated into the front-page territory! Fragmented Frames is a celebration of this change in perspective, as recorded by an eminent film critic, who has seen cinema developing and achieving greater heights over the three long decades. The book offers her reflections on various aspects ranging from mythology, theatre, television, superstition to literature, scandals, controversies and more. It provides a glimpse of this dream world, and at the same time, discusses certain 'real' issues associated with it.
