The Indian Film Theory: Flames of Sholay, Notes and Beyond

Gaston Roberge (Author)

In this book the author attempt to formulate the history that informs a most popular Indian film, Sholay. According to Bharta Muni, since dramatic performances are staged for large masses, the audience should be the playwright's guide. He assume that if millions of Indian viewers have found and still find that Sholay is a good film, then Sholay exemplifies the Indian film theory. He formulate that theory on the basis of the film.

The Indian film theory at this time is like a bunch of embers having the power to rise in flames to enlighten the Indian moviegoers (the insight of art), warm them up with enthusiasm (the delight of entertainment) and purify them from the contamination of evil (education of the masses).
