Well, my dear friend Erin returned a bunch of books and Bollywood films the other night--got me to re-reading some old staples!
One compact wee book is Bollywood by Ashok Banker--the copy I have I got thru some Indian bookseller online--so it has a nifty cover of Bollywood poster art.
Re-reading his entries on important Hindi films has gotten me wanting to find some of these films from the 50's and 60's and before.
Banker's easy style writing about his favorite films makes you want to hunt down and watch movies.
Another book Erin returned was Rachel Dwyer's Top 100 Hindi Films. I thumbed through this book and re-read some bits, noting that I had put marks on the films I owned or had seen--I haven't nearly as many I really should!
