This book examines the temporal and spatial flows of Indian Popular cinema from Bombay (Mumbai) and other production centres in the Indian subcontinent to widely dispersed spaces of consumption for nearly a century. With essays by eminent scholars, it brings together perspectives on ‘Bollywood cinema from diverse disciplinary and geographical locations to bear upon notions of nationalism, regionalism, and transnalism; politics and aesthetics; and exhibition practices and spectatorship in order to re-conceptualize the understanding of national cinemas.
