India Studies Lecture: “The Vigilante Returns: Extralegal Justice and the Common Man in New Bollywood Cinema” by Prof. Ulka Anjaria

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Prof. Ulka Anjaria will present a talk on New Bollywood Cinema. Bombay cinema of the 1970s is famous for the figure of the vigilante, who acted outside the law to avenge crimes that the police and the courts were unable to regulate.¬†Today’s vigilantes are more understated, acting out not personal vendettas but communal injustices on behalf of a new, as yet unformed political constituency: the aam aadmi (or common man).
