Example text

The family is eventually reunited (“found”) after the children have become adults and defeated the people and circumstances responsible for the initial separation. This particular genre was very popular throughout the period and the traumatic separation of the family can be interpreted as an oblique reference to the traumas of Partition, experienced barely three decades earlier, where thousands of families were separated, and many not so successfully reunited. The emphasis on family and the primacy of kinship has been a significant feature of Hindi film narratives throughout the decades.

Color broadcasting as well as national transmission via low-power transmitters and satellite began in 1982 when India hosted the Asiad games. Commercial sponsorship of programs began in 1983 as did the first major expansion of Doordarshan’s network. Cable began unofficially in India in 1984, originally spreading through tourist hotels, then apartment blocks, and finally individual households. At first the cable networks were fed by videocassette players, linked centrally to the cable network. By May 1990, 3,450 cable TV networks existed in India mainly divided between the four major cities of Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi, and Madras.

Problems facing protagonists were represented as social and economic rather than political ones. Moneylenders, zamindars (rural landlords), and wealthy businessman were the typical antagonist or villain in many films, while peasants, the urban working class, and middle-class professionals were the heroes. The state was represented as benevolent – as an arbiter of justice and agent of progress.
