Seeking out a glamorous new style that’s like nothing you’ll find in Hollywood? This Bollywood Beauty Costume is just what you’re looking for, but we hope you’re ready for a dazzling good time!In all of movie history, there’s nothing quite like Bollywood films! They combine epic stories with elaborately sprawling musical numbers, and pretty much every character is decked out in extravagant wardrobes. There’s so much to love about these wildly high energy movies, but our favorite part has always been the awesome outfits! Everything always looks like it’s made of soft silk and satin, and trimmed with gold and shimmering jewels, and all of the dresses flow elegantly when the women dance. We wish we could wear clothes like that every day, but we’re afraid we would just end up making everyone we run into incredibly jealous of our fashion skills. And, if we happened to run into real Bollywood dancers, there’s no way we could keep up with their moves…Don’t let that stop you from wearing this magnificent costume, which is inspired by the types of glamorous dresses worn by characters in Bollywood films from India! The top and ankle length dress are made of satin-like polyester, and feature gold braiding and applique detailing, which looks stunning with the included choker and bangle accessories. Then, just put on the included sheer veil and scarf to complete your alluring look, and be sure to slip on a pair of comfortable dancing slippers before you head out, because you’ll be on your feet a lot when you look this good!

Reframing Bollywood


Reframing Bollywood


$32


This book combines multiple theoretical approaches to provide a fresh perspective on Bollywoodjust as a Bollywood film that transgresses multiple genresand challenges the homogenizing tendencies in much of the ongoing scholarship in the area. It covers five areas of controversial theorization: the religious frame, the musical frame, the subaltern frame, the (hetero) sexual frame and the ‘crossover’ frame. By deconstructing each of these hegemonic paradigms, it reshapes the understanding of a Bollywood film and restructures its relationships with multiple disciplines including film and theatre studies, postcolonial studies, South Asian studies, queer studies, and transnational studies.

Bollywood Travels


Bollywood Travels


$44.95


Using an interdisciplinary framework, this book offers a fresh perspective on the issues of diaspora culture and border crossings in the films, popular cultures, and media and entertainment industries from the popular Hindi cinema of India. It analyses and discusses a range of key contemporary films in detail, such as Veer Zaara, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, and Dostana. The book uses the notion of travel analytically in and through the cinema to comment on films that have dealt with Indo-Pak border crossings, representations of diaspora, and gender and sexuality in new ways. It engages with common sense assumptions about everyday South Asian and diasporic South Asian cultures and representations as expressed in Bollywood cinema in order to look at these issues further. Moving towards an innovative exploration beyond the films, this book charts the circuits and routes of Bollywood as South Asian club cultures in the diaspora, and Hindi cinema entertainment shows around the world, as well as its impact on social media websites. Bollywood Travels is an original and thought provoking contribution to studies on Asian Culture and Society, Sociology, World Cinema, and Film, Media and Cultural Studies.
