Provincializing Bollywood

Bhojpuri Cinema in the Comparative Media Crucible

Akshaya Kumar

Media Dynamics in South Asia

  • Draws upon a host of analytical frameworks and geographical contexts to synthesize the comparative media crucible, refusing to confine the significance of Bhojpuri cinema to the Bhojpuri speaking region
  • Reassembles provincial north India as a historical-theoretical formation, whose riparian imaginaries are being overlaid with "concrete" substances
  • Analyzes the political ecology in which Indian cinemas have taken shape by invoking a widely shared debt
  • Observes Bhojpuri media via the public scandal of overflowing substances that breach the structural barriers which reinforce embankment infrastructures
