Summary This film analyses the role of the Indian folk dance forms in Indian cinema, in particular, Hindi/Bollywood cinema. The rich folk and classical dance forms of India have immensely influenced Bollywood song and dance sequences. Bollywood choreographers have over the years utilized Indian folk, classical and traditional Indian dance forms to create, innovate and experiment different style of song and dance sequences. Most of the folk dance forms are glamorized and exoticised while they are represented on screen. In last few decades, Bollywood has been utilizing various dance forms especially the Western popular dance culture, and often plays the role of a catalyst to bring exoticised, spectacularised, glamorised and glocalised images to people. Utilising interviews with filmmakers, dance experts, performers and Bollywood fans, the documentary brings to the fore discussions regarding how Bollywood song-dance sequences are having considerable influence on the traditional folk dance forms of India, both in terms of form and content.
