A joy to read...brings together a collection of very insightful and authoritative essays probing the multifarious research and impact of bollywood movies within and outside India, also sets the stage for scholarly appreciation of the relationship between culture, Politics, International relations and the power games that such relationships entail.... It is fascinating to see such rigorous research being expended on something that we, in our country, consume as given...even a skim- through is rewarding.-- The Asian Age, 25 September 2012
