India produces more films each year than any other country in the world. Yet, apart from the films of Sanjit Ray, the diverse and lavish output of Indian film-makers is largely unknown outside the Far East. This pioneering reference work features all major Indian film directors over an 80-year period. The book takes as its starting point D. G. Phalke's famous 1913 silent film Raja Harishchandra, generally acknowledged as the first Indian feature. Original Indian language titles from the regional cinemas are transliterated - whether in Assamese, Bengali, Bhojpuri, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malyayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Rajasthani, Sanskrit, Sinhalese, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu or other languages. Three Hundred Eighty-three directors are included alphabetically by surname. There is complete coverage of all periods and genres.
