From Literary Composition to Cinematic Adaptation: A Study of Indian Cinema through Popular Literature

BRIEF CONCEPT NOTE:

Adaptation of literary works into Indian cinema is not new for Indian film makers, rather one can say that such adaptation is as long as film making itself. Last few decades have witnessed many Indian cinemas adapted from literature. From past to present, literary works of many popular writers from national to global level have been adapted into Indian cinema. However, adapting a literary work into a two or three hours cinema, mostly in case of a novel is not always an easy task to a film maker as sometimes, accommodation does not come to fit in the time frame work and thus messing up the whole essence of the original art. Regardless of partial or whole, a cinema based on literary work has always been a great appeal to an erudite person. The present anthology seeks original and unpublished article on Indian cinema based on literary works. Authors may choose any cinema of her or his interest in Indian context.
