Every year the Indian film industry produces more than a 1,000 feature films; every day 14 million Indians go to a movie; and a billion more people a year buy tickets for Indian movies than for their Hollywood-produced counterparts. Bombay's studios have taken the cinematic techniques of Hollywood and used them to produce features that have enthralled audiences throughout eastern Europe, the Middle East, and beyond. The result is the Bollywood movie, a film genre characterised by multiple song and dance routines, intense melodrama, and plots containing everything from farce to tragedy. This is the fantastic, diverse, and rich story of the social and cultural phenomenon of Bollywood and an up-close look at the men, women, and ideas that have fuelled its incredible growth.
