Beschreibung:

Cinema is a fairly accurate reflector of the political trends and of ?presence? in public spaces that affect personal lives. It captures the changing graph of social space as well as that of individual anxiety. Muslim Culture in Indian Cinema brings together in-depth explorations of the various facets of Muslim life and culture as they are woven into collective histories. The volume takes into its range more than sixty years of cinematic presentation, moves into past histories through films like Mughal-e-Azam and Shatranj ke Khiladi, analyses personal relationships and seeks to deconstruct and consider larger issues such as language, music and poetry. The excerpts from Saeed Mirza?s Ammi touch upon several sensitive and significant issues while Anisur Rahman presents a perceptive overview of the intricacies of cultural representation. Qawallis, Sufi philosophy, language, partition, divided families, courtesans, and Muslim personal law are some of the issues that are explored through cinematic representations nudging our memories as a reminder of our collective heritage. Together the essays open out multifarious dimensions for further exploration both for the expert and the novice. Printed Pages: 240. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 66734
