(p.1) 1 Understanding Cinematic Transformations and Neoliberal Culture in India
(p.iii) Dark Fear, Eerie Cities

Šarūnas Paunksnis

Oxford University Press

The chapter theorizes the emergence of new Hindi cinema and looks at the methodological problems arising from understanding new Hindi cinema as a cinematic phenomenon. What is “new” in new Hindi cinema? How should we understand the emergence of this film form? Is it a mere extension of indie cinema, or is it something else? Is it a part of Bollywood, or is it outside of it? The chapter criticizes the dominant approaches to new Hindi cinema, and provides new theoretical tools for understanding this cinematic phenomenon as the result of neoliberal transformations in India.

Keywords:   neoliberalism, new Hindi cinema, city, middle class, Marcuse, unhappy consciousness
