Full of unexpected delights, this film revives the all-singing, all-dancing, cheeky feel of a Bollywood production. It highlights the Jewish stars that dominated early Indian cinema when Hindu and Muslim women could not appear on screen. From the silent era through Bollywood’s golden age, Indian cinema icons share their highs and lows, and describe how their careers pushed the boundaries of Indian-Jewish culture.
