Indian popular cinema is both a reaction to India’s globalization and a driver of it. For this assignment, you will watch a film from Bollywood’s “third phase,” though it will also be a film that has some aspirations toward “the real.” On one of the three films below, write a 5-7 page double-spaced paper on how the film expresses both Indian and global desires. These could be the desires of the characters, the desires of the film industry, or the desires of the nation. Consider such topics as melodrama, realism, music, and family, as discussed in the lectures. The paper must be argumentative. It should be clear the point you are arguing, and what is the evidence from the film you are providing to back up that argument. You should be detailed about characters, narrative, music, or whatever specific elements of the film best support your argument. This is not a film review. Your opinion of the film is not important here. You must write on one of these three films: Gully Boy (Zoya Akhtar, India, 2019) (Amazon Prime) Kapoor & Sons (Shakun Batra, India, 2016) (Netflix and Amazon Prime, as well as for rent on iTunes, Google Play) Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (Shelly Chopra Dhar, India, 2019) (Netflix)
