(p.87) 3 Changing Structures in the Mumbai Film Industry
Behind the Curtain

Gregory D. Booth

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the changing structures of the film industry in Mumbai, India. It proposes a historical model in which overlapping cultural and industrial systems resulted in changes in film-music production and the exploitation of music for maximum profit. It suggests that the gradual and seamless process of change in the Mumbai film industry consists of three rough historical periods. These include Studio Period from 1935 to 1950, Old Bollywood from 1950 to 1998 and New Bollywood from 1998 to the present.

Keywords:   film industry, Mumbai, India, film-music production, Bollywood
