Format: Paperback
As an American who only recently discovered Bollywood movies, I absolutely loved the classic Hindi movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge so much that I bought this book about it. The book is intended to be used as a college textbook for critical studies of the film in the context of motion pictures as an art and entertainment medium in contemporary culture. While I am not a student, I am interested in movies as a medium of art, and I am very interested in the Indian film industry in particular. This book helped satisfy those interests.

I found this book very helpful in understanding the movie's effect on Indian people, both those who have dispersed to other countries and those who remain in India. It also gave me insight to the actual making of the film and some history of Indian cinema and the careers of the cast and crew who made the film. Most importantly, it gave me greater understanding of Indian movies in general and the meaning of metaphors typically used in those films.

I would recommend this book to 1) students studying films and the film industry, 2) Bollywood enthusiasts, and 3) fans of Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and director Aditya Chopra.

Reading the other review, I said i would purchase this book, so i could learn what was being said about this book in college discussions. this book provided a great look into the history and making of the film, as well as posing several great theories and meanings that the movie stands for or evokes. The book has color pages, great quality, and at less than a 100 easily read pages, is a 4 hour read, coming from someone who doesn't read at all, and is a must have for a fan of any of the stars, a bollywood fan, or a DDLJ fan

Love the book, lots of things I didn't know about the movie. I wish Anupama wrote more about making the movie like what was going on sets and all funny stuff that happens. Also I regretted I bought a small book - small font makes it really hard to translate.
