In Bollywood Dreams Jonathan Torgovnik explores the beloved pastime of an Indian population of over one billion. As the world's largest film-producing

country, India creates more than 800 films a year, making its movie industry a cultural and commercial phenomenon. Paying tribute to stars, film makers, technicians and moviegoers, Bollywood Dreams puts a human face on the fantastical, spectacle-rich films that compels as many as fourteen million people to the cinema on a single day in India alone.

Divided into thematic chapters, the entire spectrum of Indian cinema is covered, from the vibrant colours and the expansive settings of the film sets, to the glamorous stars and audience. Bollywood Dreams takes the reader behind the scenes and to the movie theatres of bustling Mumbai as well as the makeshift travelling cinemas that tour from village to village.
