Book Summary
Talking Cinema: Conversations With Actors & Directors, published in 2013, takes a look into the reel lives of film personalities. This book tries to answer questions about how actors prepare themselves for specific roles, and what is their intellectual and emotional state of mind. The author has documented conversations with some of the film industry s most famous stars. It provides an insider s view and insight, and makes readers understand that movies are beyond designer clothes, makeup and glycerine teardrops. Talking Cinema: Conversations With Actors & Directors is divided into four sections. An Actor Prepares focuses on how a performer readies himself or herself for a role. Character Speak is the second section, and takes a look at the research that has gone into developing some of the most critically acclaimed characters that have appeared on Indian movie screens. The next portion of this book shifts its focus away from the performers, and deals with filmmakers. Directors Cut takes a peek into the mind of such personalities. The Specialists is the final section of Talking Cinema: Conversations With Actors & Directors.
