With around 800 films per year, India is the leading producer of filmed entertainment in the world. Interestingly, the Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam film industries––the major four in south India––make up over half the share. This collection of diverse but interconnected essays provides a fresh approach to understanding cinemas of south India. Considering cinema from various language-cultures, this volume discusses issues ranging from identity politics and minority discourse to re-makes and the politics of gender. Instead of focusing on language, or nation, or region, which have dominated discussions on films, this volume looks at ideologies within traditions of films and film industries to explore ideas and images related to language, identity, gender, communities, and politics. The essays look at culture in terms of conventional and transforming norms of societal politics, and more importantly in terms of cultures of cinema: of production, viewing, stardom, and film songs, among others. The comprehensive Introduction surveys all the issues and reviews existing studies on cinemas of south India.
