By now, most of us have seen the film Gandhi.
The movie has received plenty of critical acclaim, including praise from Oprah Winfrey and Stephen Colbert, and has become a huge hit in India.
It is also the subject of a book by British writer, writer-director and film-maker, Shashi Tharoor.
The book was released earlier this month and includes an interview with Tharouoor, who also wrote and directed the film.
The Indian film industry has experienced a revival in recent years, with films such as Aamir Khan’s Aamma, the film by Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan’s Saeed, Amitabhat Devgn’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Shailaja Bandyopadhyay’s Jai Shree Rajputana, Shashank Manjrekar’s Bhagalpur, Rajkumar Raman’s Jyoti and Amitabhimani’s Jagtar being released.
But a lot of the work in Indian cinema is also being done by foreign filmmakers.
India has long been a major market for American film productions, with movies such as The Great Gatsby, American Graffiti, The Big Short and The Shawshank Redemption all being released in the country.
And the rise of Hollywood and its associated industries has meant a rise in the production value of Indian films.
In an interview to New York magazine, Shri Tharouroor talked about the influence that Hollywood and the Indian film industries have had on the Indian cinema industry.
Tharoomoor said, “There are some films that have been made in India that have influenced American films.
I’m not going to say that they’ve influenced American movies because they’re not.
But they’ve been influenced by American films, which has been a big influence for Indian films.”
According to Tharoot, American films have been influenced in the past by Indian films and have influenced Indian movies in particular, but they have also influenced American cinema in a different way.
Tharoor said American movies, like The Great Gangster, are often inspired by Indian movies and that the way that they have been adapted to American audiences has also influenced Indian films in a more specific way.
Tharcoot added that the influence of American films has been very clear for the Indian audience and that there has been an enormous amount of film made by the Indian industry in the US that has been influenced, not only by American movies but also by Indian cinema.
Tharaoor said that he thinks that Indian filmmakers are not only doing American films but also adapting American films for Indian audiences, but he also feels that this is a very important change in the way films are made.
“I think that the Indian films are very different to American movies.
I think that Indian cinema has always been about creating a very authentic and authentic Indian cinema,” Tharower said.
He said that it is also very important that Indian films not only reflect the values and sensibilities of Indian society but also have a cultural depth and a sensitivity that are very important.
“Indian cinema is an Indian cinema that’s a reflection of the society, the traditions and the culture,” Tharaower said, adding that he is very excited about the Indian audiences and the new films coming out.
