This chapter introduces the key issues that are addressed in this book, including the meanings and roles of songs in Hindi films and the disciplinary, theoretical, and hermeneutic issues that arise when music is one component of a multimedia text. After describing some of the roles of songs in Hindi films and pointing to the vast array of musical styles that are regularly incorporated into these songs, the chapter goes on to unpack the theoretical framework for musical cosmopolitanism and stylistic mediation that is used throughout the book. The chapter concludes by describing the research methods used and providing a chapter outline.

Keywords:   Bollywood, Indian films, media hermeneutics, semiotics, cosmopolitanism, mediation
