Tracking Tamil Cinema's Assemblage

Travels of Bollywood Cinema



Oxford University Press

This chapter opposes the ‘regionalization’ of Tamil cinema and traces the transnational flows of Tamil cinema that are asymptotic with those of Hindi. Defining Tamil cinema as ‘a cinema in motion’, the chapter provides a fascinating glimpse into the different forms of sociality it has produced historically and spatially. The new forms of sociality produced by cinemas in Tamil interrupt the ideology of the Hindi film and the conceptualization of the nation state.

Keywords:   regionalization, Tamil cinema, transnational flows, sociality, ideology of Hindi film, nation state
