Pleasures of Bollywood:

"camp"--(i.e., so bad it's good)--with exceptions, quality control is often comparable to American soap operas or evangelical films

less intensive attitude toward film consumption--most films are longish and episodic; audience in party-family mode, snacking and talking, coming and going

films show traditional culture of India "absorbing" non-Indian elements (blue jeans, open sexuality, gender equality with reservations)
