    1. Collection of Bollywood film posters categorised by genre and text about the history of the Bollywood film poster and each genre of film.This is fine as far as it goes and is a great introduction to Bollywood cinema, but is of course limited in what it contains I for one wanted on Bollywood horror, which is marginalised to only one double page.Also a lot of the films only have their Indian title so sometimes you have to guess if its the film the text is talking about.What posters there are, are [...]

    2. The book has some great photographs of Bollywood posters.A delightful compilation of posters, conveniently categorized under genres A treat for buffs of the neglected art form of poster design.The book has different sections like Crime, Romance, Fantasy I especially loved the rare posters and films it documents in great detail.They are classic and have retro feel in them.It has much much old movies posters as compared to new ones also we should keep in mind that this book was published in 2008 [...]

    3. Seeing that this book is mostly pictures, there is not much to comment on regarding its text Though sparse, the information this book gives regarding the history of the Bollywood poster is interesting and quite fascinating And of course, the posters are absolutely amazing and of such great quality

    4. Nice glossy reproductions of Bollywood posters some spread over two pages One minor complaint some of the posters have titles that are not Anglicized and unless you can identify multiple actors in the painting and run a cross reference search on it is impossible to deduce the name of the film A caption would have been appreciated in these instances.

    5. It s an okay book really The choice of posters is not that inspiring I have seen much better selections in other books and on the internet Still a nice book to have on my shelf.
