Pankaj Mishra on Bollywood

“Some Bollywood directors see a great opportunity to score over Hollywood. Certainly, the global village seems to need a more complex moral code than that offered by Rambo and the Terminator, and Bollywood, even with all its apparently absurd sentimentality, may be better placed to provide it than the cynically, if slickly, retailed violence of Hollywood.”

Amitabh Bachchan blasted on the term first used by some Bombay journalists to define Indian Film Industry as “Bollywood”. He really hated this term and I think he showed his anger while talking to NPR last year.
NPR has been consistently covering on this topic.

Cultural collision brought by two large dreamfactories of the world is something worth watching.
