Bollywood in Britain: Cinema, Brand, Discursive Complex by Lucia Krämer PDF

Bollywood in Britain provides the most extensive survey to date of the various manifestations and facets of the Bollywood phenomenon in Britain. The book analyzes the role of Hindi films in the British film market, it shows how audiences engage with Bollywood cinema and it discusses the ways the image of Bollywood in Britain has been shaped. In contrast to most of the existing books on the subject, which tend to approach Bollywood as something that is made by Asians for Asians, the book also focuses on how Bollywood has been adapted for non-Asian Britons. An analysis of Bollywood as an unofficial brand is combined with in-depth readings of texts like film reviews, the TV show Bollywood Star (2004) and novels and plays with references to the Bombay film industry. On this basis Bollywood in Britain demonstrates that the presentation of Bollywood for British mainstream culture oscillates between moments of approximation and distancing, with a clear dominance of the latter. Despite its alleged transculturality,Bollywood in Britain thus emerges as a phenomenon of difference, distance and Othering.

About the Author
Lucia Krämer is assistant professor for British Literature and Culture at Leibniz University Hanover,
Germany. Her research is largely prompted by an interest in productive reception. Starting out as a
specialist on Oscar Wilde, her current focus of research is on the theory and practice of adaptation and postcolonial media cultures.

In examining a wide range of interrelated yet distinct issues that pertain to Bollywood that are growing increasingly pertinent to the theorization of this cinematic form in the twenty-first century, Bollywood in Britain is a significant contribution to the burgeoning field of Bollywood studies and, more broadly, to the study of non-Western and transnational cinemas and their subsequent receptions.
Ajay Gehlawat, Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Sonoma State University, USA --This text refers to the paperback edition.
