Publisher : Seagull Books

Author:  Vijaya Mulay


Swarna Kamal

Any one conversant with life in North Bihar and East Uttar Pradesh, or in many lands far beyond, would recognize the importance of this ‘subaltern’ effort.

N. Manu Chakravarthy (Kannada & English)



Swarna Kamal

Rs 37,500


Swarna Kamal

Rs 37,500
Joshy Joseph, essentially a filmmaker, proves to be an important critic as well, as he goes about writing on the most serious aspects of medium with wry humour and a lightness of touch that is difficult not to notice. His commitment to the documentary in particular sets him apart from many of those writing on cinema in this country.

Professor Chakravarthy’s writings on film and related arts are replete with profound insights into the human condition as well as the need for serious discourse on socio-cultural matters. His writings reveal the authority with which he can discuss the cinemas of the world, particularly his own Kannada cinema.
