Acerca de


"Dayal's writing is bright and supple, and his reading of films is consistently interesting and entertaining. The meshing of realism and fantasy in prominent Bollywood films and genres argues that the fantasy elements are integral to imagining `Indianness' over a range of interruptions that trouble a coherent national identity. Dayal avers that fantastic imagination is far more than mere escapism. A very engaging, rewarding project and a solid scholarly book, Dream Machine is also an interesting read for the non-expert cinephile."- Henry Schwarz, Professor of English at Georgetown University "Dayal does an excellent job of bringing together diverse films, theorists, and critics on such issues as cosmopolitanism, secularism, terrorism, gender, and sexuality, often linking his analyses with contemporaneous historical events to provide fuller context. The most exciting aspect of Dream Machine is its new engagement of psychoanalytic theories of fantasy and the production of `Indianness' in transnational Bollywood cinema. This is a fascinating book."-Kavita Daiya, Associate Professor of English at George Washington University
