Middle India and Corruption

 

Bollywood finds new muse in anti-graft protests

Reuters report:

“MUMBAI – A hapless bank clerk who makes an enemy of a local politician and has to bribe himself out of jail seems like an unlikely theme for Bollywood, known around the world for its dance numbers and family melodramas.

Yet the industry is now taking up corruption and clean government in a host of new films, inspired by anti-graft protests that have found resonance with India’s middle-class and laid bare the angst of the common man.”

 

And because I am currently working on an article about Middle Class India, I am going to watch this film. I hope someone makes it available online soon…
