Movies affect our growing-up years more than we'd like to admit, they say. Which means the average Bollywood fan is totally screwed. 42 Lessons I Learnt From Bollywood is a jolly look back at the glorious decade for Hindi cinema that was the nineties. Those were eventful years. The economy opened up. India changed. The Internet arrived. And Bollywood was like, 'Wait for me, I can change too!' 42 Lessons is the story of that transformation, even if it wasn't always for the best. This is a treasury of the wisdom a young man garnered growing up on that unsteady fare. From Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Khalnayak, forty-two blockbusters-even some you may not have heard of-seen through the ever-attentive eyes of the Vigil Idiot.



Author Bio: Sahil Rizwan is a twenty-six-year-old columnist and stick-figure professional. He follows a lot of sports, even though he doesn't play any. He watches a lot of TV shows, even though he doesn't own an actual television. And he makes a lot of fun of Bollywood, even though he loves pretty much every movie to come out of that industry. He is also the creator of 'The Vigil Idiot' - one of the most widely read web comics in the country. He is qualified in absolutely no way to critique any movie critiqued in this book.
