Politics of Representation in Cinema and Recent Interventions
Dr. Sowmya A
Movies, one of the main forms of mass arts, have the advantage of reaching a larger section of population. A conspicuous trait of the Indian cinema is its mode of narration with hyperreal (Jean Baudrillard) elements propelling audience from grim realities on a flight of fantasy. The hyperreal elements related to stylised romance, songs, fights, and dramas enshrining the pan Indian sentiments were incorporated into movies mainly to distract audience from core issues ailing society. Furthermore, movies were a dominant apparatus to proliferate myths surrounding dominant cultures and their ideologies. In addition to it, mythicized conceptualisations concerning movie making, images of heroes on and off screen, were also heralded creating a subculture of cult movies. The induction of reality was often meant to brook the hyperreal narration and to accord it an edge of believability. Real was often beaten down to suit the requirements of the hyperreal and to sustain the charm of fairy- tale narratives.
