Neither Bride and Prejudice nor Slumdog Millionaire can be categorised under Indian cinema. Bride and prejudice has been adapted from Jane Austene s classic novel. Gurinder Chadha has rather farcically given an Indian backdrop with the setting of Amritsar. The re-writing has been done by Paul Mayeda Berges. Though the film has some of the noted Indian actors like Aiswarya and Anupam the maker has given Western hue and the production of the film is not Indian either. The genre of Chadha has never been Indian. As for Slumdog it is all the more occidental. Danny Boyle who has already been an established British film-maker was initially reluctant to do the film from the novel Q & A by Vikas Swarup but when he was convinced by the screenplay writer Simon Beaufoy he was out to make the film. The production is Celador the British company. If these films are categorised as Indian Gandhi by Richard Attenborough or David Leen s A Passage to India may be branded as Indian movies.

I doubt whether such movies can be considered a part of Indian cinema. They do have Indian themes but to term as Indian cinema would be wrong. What those movies really show is a cross cultural effect but to accept them as Indian cinema seems to be little difficult.
