Statesman Feature Critique

  1. Hooray for Bollywood
  2. November 30, 2007
  3. The writer was trying to get the reader to understand the difference between the way Indian's and American's dress. He also wanted the reader to get a feel of how different the environment is in India than America. The writer achieved this by comparing himself, an American, and describing how he was dressed and looking like and feeling, and then comparing it to the rest of the Indian's standing next to him, which shows the differences.
  4. Who: Chris Garcia
    What: Indian Cinema
    When: November 9, 2007
    Where: Mumbai, India
    Why: Chris went to India to experience the movie cinema experience there and to see how cinema works in India and how different it is from America. Also went to see 2 movies that have just recently been released and are both very popular.
    How: He traveled to the India and went to the cinema and watched 2-3 movies there. He also kept a travel diary, in which he recorded all of his experiences, and compared them to American cinema.
  5. a)It's early November and a box office war of Bollywood titans has commenced on the subcontinent.
    b)...luxurious visuals, fabulously frilly song and dance numbers, blushingly broad comedy and sudsy melodrama, buckets of glycerin tears, miles of jangling bangles and jiggling bellies, all barely contained in nearly three-hour running times...
  6. This story affected me because it reminded me of India because I havn't been there in a while and it made me miss it. It also made me imagine about being in the theater in India and what it feels like and it felt a lot like I was also experiencing also what Chris experienced. It was also good in making people realize that in different countries, the movie experience is different.
