India

Image for India

Duration: 30 minutes

Tom Brook presents a special edition from India. We will be looking at the antidote to Bollywood, the new wave of Indian cinema that has an independent sensibility, as well as the renaissance in regional cinema, Bengali and Punjabi films, and the impact they're having on the industry. And we go to an old-fashioned movie theatre in rural India to meet the typical Indian filmgoer and explore the relationship between Indian cinema and the millions who watch it.
