The book carries some scattered observations and impressions from an editor’s notebook.
Capturing the fragmented frames of cinema. Some explored as academic study, while some retained as stubborn memories that refuse to fade. The collective images celebrate an undying passion for the fascinating medium.
The concerns for the issues came in much later. After one had sufficient exposure and the confidence to disagree and debate. One discovered that the same films evoked different responses and interpretations during different decades of growing up. And perhaps that’s the essence of cinema. To break the illusions and conjure new images.
The Book was released by Sanjay Leela Bhansali at the Screen Awards, Mumbai and by Kirron Kher at Los Angeles Film Festival in LA.
