The challenge before us is to create a body of work which can stand alongside the West.
The Films created chiefly by the larger Studios Universal, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, MGM and others.
Most of these films are based on existing novels or stories.
And what’s the content ?
The broad trends of Western Civilisation – The Greek and Roman empires, the two World Wars, the Cold War, the Westerns, Sherlock Holmes. Even the James Bond Films are based on the novels of Ian Fleming, as we all know.
So what are the broad trends that we need to cover. The great Sanskrit texts, the freedom struggle, the Partition.
