Book Description Penguin Books India, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Main saare zamaane ke gham ki dawaa hoon. (I am the cure of all the sorrows of the world.) "Lyrics from Helen`s song in the film Adhikaar (1971) It is now over two decades since the Hindi-film heroine drove the vamp into extinction, and even longer since the silver screen was ignited by the true Bollywood version of a cabaret. Yet, Helen"nicknamed "H-Bomb` at the height of her career"continues to rule the popular imagination. Improbably, for a dancer and a vamp, she has become an icon. Jerry Pinto`s gloriously readable book is a study of the phenomenon that was Helen: Why did a refugee of French-Burmese parentage succeed as wildly as she did in Bollywood? How could otherwise conservative families sit through, and even enjoy, her "cabarets`? What made Helen "the desire that you need not be embarrassed about feeling`? How did she manage the unimaginable: vamp three generations of men on screen? Equally, the book is a wonderfully witty and provocative examination of middle-class Indian morality; the politics of religion, gender and sexuality in popular culture; and the importance of the song, the item-number and the wayward woman in Hindi cinema. Printed Pages: 264. Bookseller Inventory # 76493
