The Bollywood Beat : The Advent of the Item Song

SOAS Bollywood Society is taking you on a journey through time and musical space with Hindi Filmi Song. In the pilot show we will talk about the latest hits that average Indian man and woman would play on their phone, hits that bring people to the cinema and show the actors in a different position in the cinema: as item boys and girls. We will talk about the meaning of the word “Bollywood” and “Item Song” and how the songs become a marketing ploy for the cinema industry.
