Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Indian films and film stars were immensely popular with Soviet audiences in the post-Stalinist period. Sudha Rajagopalan provides the first detailed social and cultural history of this phenomenon, exploring the consumption of Indian popular cinema in the USSR from the mid-1950s until the end of the Soviet era. Drawing on oral history and archival research in Russia, Rajagopalan analyzes the ways in which Soviet movie-goers, policy makers, critics, and sociologists responded to, interpreted, and debated Indian cinema.

Synopsis:

Understanding the Soviet public's love of Indian popular film

About the Author

Sudha Rajagopalan is an affiliated researcher with the Media Studies Group (Institute of History and Culture) at the University of Utrecht.
