Remakes, Adaptations, and Straight Lifts in Bollywood: A Podcast
The crew over at Upodcasting was gracious in inviting me to participate in a discussion in which bloggers Filmi Girl, Rum, and I, along with our host Asim, discussed remakes, adaptations, and straight lifts in Hindi cinema.
We discuss why films in each category are prominent, what makes them alluring to filmmakers, and what role audiences play. We discuss any cases in which they could be justified. We also delve into topics such as preferential treatment when forming perceptions of the filmmakers and/or cast involved.
It's an interesting topic made exciting because of Bollywood dynamics. So head on over to this Upodcasting link, where our episode -- It's a CAAAAPY, Yaar! -- is available for you to listen to or download! There's plenty more over at the portal for us all to enjoy.
The Upodcast, which is not limited to discussions and commentary on Hindi film alone, is also available on iTunes.
