About the Book:

The Adventures of an Intrepid Film Critic is journalist Anna MM Vetticad's account of a yeai in which she resolved to blog reviews of eveiy single Hindi film released in the NCR Through the experience of viewing and reviewing those 121 films and interviewing the people who made them, the author chronicles the changing face of Bollywood, discovering in the process an industry beyond the Vidya Balans and Priyanka Chopras, the Kapoors and the Khans, the other Bollywood where beautiful small films routinely disappear without a trace and where an array of dismal films are made on the sidelines to satisfy personal egos. Through the microcosm of Bollywood, this book discusses the ethics of filmmaking, film criticism and film marketing in India, and raises important political and social questions that would concern an increasingly discerning audience. With both humour and pathos, The Adventures of an Intrepid Film Critic gives readers an overview of contemporary Hollywood not attempted so far.
