Abstract:

Stephen Alter -- a writer who grew up in India and has inside access to Bollywood -- acts as translator and tour guide in Fantasies of a Bollywood Love Thief, a firsthand look into the world of Bombay films. Following the making of a Bollywood version of Othello, he explores the enormous popularity of Hindi movies and the actors, directors, musicians, and feats of artifice that make them so compelling and unique. The result is a beguiling introduction to the rituals and culture of a moviemaking industry so similar to and yet utterly different from our own. -- BOOK JACKET.
