Despite the often stereotypical notions of Bollywood, it’s not all weddings, wet saris and running around trees. In the 1970s, Indian cinema gave birth to a new breed of action movie, one that combined its own exuberant traditions with foreign influences like the gritty urban crime thrillers of the New Hollywood, Hong Kong martial arts cinema, and Italian exploitation fare.
This was the domain of hard fighting he-men stars like Amitabh Bachchan
and Feroz Khan
and badass, whip-wielding heroines played by the likes of the gorgeous Zeenat Aman
, Hema Malini
, and Rekha
Let world cult cinema fanatic Todd Stadtman be your guide through this world of karate killers, femme fatales, space age lairs, bombshells and booby traps with Funky Bollywood
, a book with an attitude as freewheeling and feisty as its subject matter, bursting with colour and imagination on every vibrant page!
