Bollywood style and postmodern circulation

by Critical Commons Manager

Raja Nawathe's Gumnaam (1965) and other spectacles from the Bollywood film industry were cited by Australian film director Baz Luhrmann as having inspired the visual design of his film Moulin Rouge (2001). This dance sequence from Gumnaam is itself a pastiche of multiple international styles, creating a complex, multi-directional flow of aesthetic influences across international, generic and media borders.
