Steve Sharma requests:


> Hi all,
> I am interested in learning more about the film industry in India.
> Even very general information is fine because I am not familiar with
> very much of it.  Can't anyone suggest some books, web pages, people I should contact, movies that I must see, etc.
> I may be having the chance to go in a few weeks, so places to go would be great to.
