In this extraordinary collection of essays, Garga delves into the vast repertoire of his scholarship and experience to provide an insider's view of Indian and international cinema over the years. Even as he discusses the contribution of men behind the screen-the director, editor, cinematographer-he profiles some of the greatest masters of Indian cinema, like Himansu Rai and P.C. Barua, Bimal Roy and Raj Kapoor, while critically analysing some classic films from the golden era of cinema in India-Devdas(1935) and Sant Tukaram(1936) to Mother India (1957) and Muglah-e-Azam(1960).

Bhagwan Das Garga is one of India's most eminent film scholars and a founder of the National Film Archive, Pune.
