Recently a Bengali reader, Sri Laral Mukherjee of Calcutta, wrote RR an email. He asks if ruralreaders.net could take a closer look at films made in tollywood (made in calcutta) and bollywood: Can any scripts of these two great traditions be considered as rural readings or not? Mr Mukherjee especially wonders about the refined dancescenes - especially in the films of Shah Rukh Khan (right). Almost all of these scenes are imploded into rural landscapes even if the rest of the story is situated in the middle of a city. Mr. Mukherjee wonders how this is possible. A good question.
