This is a Coffee table book with lots of pictures to look at and some delightful text to read. The text and the photos are about Hindi filmdom, nonchalantly called Bollywood. Kaveree Bamzai mixes good analysis and delightful behind-the-scene accounts with the captivating stills and text. Through well researched narratives and painstakingly gathered anecdotes the authoress profiles India’s Hindi film industry that is one of the largest in the world. She writes on Bollywood’s famous heroes and heroines including Amitbh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan and these profiles form a big portion of the volume. She also writes, but less, about producers and filmmakers and gives a complete go by to the so-very important technicians, including the sound recordists, cameramen and set designers. Kaveree Bamzai introduces the new Bollywood and tells the readers how stars, filmmakers and producers work. She writes about several new films and gives several trivia.. Like, Sanjay Lee Bhansali took almost a fortnight to can each of the songs of Devdas. This is not at all surprising with 700 light-men providing three million watts of electric power and taking hours to make even slightest of adjustments. Bamzai writes about the smart canteens for the staff, butler services for the stars, studios that can create airports and little villages in no time or can make snow or sunshine as required. And then there are the inevitable flings, affairs, extramarital affairs, divorces, hypocrisy and lots of gossips and bitching. Purposely or otherwise she gives a go by to Bollywood’s connection with the underworld, especially of the Middle East and does not reveal the quantity of amounts that changes hands. The photos and moods are varied and captured in different styles. They accurately and also alluringly showcase the colourful and glamorous Bollywood at its dynamic, romantic, sexy and comic best.
