This chapter examines the issues on value, genre and style in the film-music industry in Mumbai, India. It considers the distinctive notions and patterns of style and genre construction in film music and explores film musicians' representations of and relationships with musical style. It suggests that the cultural dominance of film music in India may have produced a similar form of conceptual myopia among its listeners and practitioners.

Keywords:   film-music industry, Mumbai, India, film music, musical style, culture
