    "Reading this book was really an eye opening experience for me. I had always heard of Bollywood films, but I never took the time to watch any of them. After finishing this book, I really want to watch this brand of films myself. As I read through this book I began to notice the differences between Hollywood films and Bollywood films, such as Bollywood films rely are more musical based. I even watch some snippets of these films online when reading to get a better feel for them. The book was easy to digest and very interesting, which is why I would recommend it."

    "I have been studying bollywood for a long time. There are a lot of great books written about the subject. The new book by Monika Mehta is not one of them. Her book Censorship and Sexuality in Bombay Cinema is poorly informed, poorly written, and over all sees to be more fiction then fact."

    "I wanted to find a good book about bollywood and identified Bollywood: A History. This book is well written and has a lot on the history of Bollywood. It discusses the film industry in India very well and often compares it to the US. I highly recommend this book."

    "This is a rather niche book. To take any interest you have to be passionate about Bollywood. With that being said it is an interesting story and very well written and made digestible by the author. Worth a look if your looking for something offbeat."

    "This might not be the Bollywood bible, but it is definitely one of its books. Though not all inclusive, this follows the story of the preeminent Bollywood family and tells the story of how Indian cinema came to be."
