Product description

Product Description

If you are a Hindi-movie buff, karva chauth immediately brings to mind DDLJ, and Easter probably reminds you of Anthony Gonsalves. Take a trip down the memory lane with this beautifully conceived celebration of Indian cinema, which contains its century-long history in a fun capsule, and includes fascinating facts and milestones. Once Upon a Time in India will be your constant companion through the weeks of the coming year, with its attractive diary pages featuring iconic dialogues and fun trivia. Like the timelessness of Indian cinema, the fifty-three full-page original illustrations in Bollywood poster art style—depicting some of the most memorable scenes from your favourite films—make this a volume to treasure even when the year is over.
