Course Description The epic scale of Indian cinema - three hour long films, song and dance sequences, spectacular larger than life films sets, elaborate costumes and star systems, temples and elections devoted to stars - lends itself easily to accounts that run from gentle mockery to an enthusiastic acclaim. This course will offer a historical and thematic introduction to Hindi language commercial Indian cinema, also known more commonly as Bollywood with a particular focus on the themes of gender, selfhood and identity (masculinity as well as female sexuality). Screenings will include iconic and popular films like: Mother India (1957), Guide (1965), Deewar (1975), Saleem Langde Pe Mat Ro (1989), Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995), The Dirty Picture (2011), and Kahaani (2012).
