    The Adventures of an Intrepid Film Critic is journalist Anna MM Vetticad's account of a year in which she resolved to blog reviews of every single Hindi film released in the NCR. Through the experience of viewing and reviewing those 121 films and interviewing the people who made them, the author chronicles the changing face of Bollywood, discovering in the process an industry beyond the Vidya Balans and Priyanka Chopras, the Kapoors and the Khans, the other Bollywood where beautiful small films routinely disappear without a trace and where an array of dismal films are made on the side lines to satisfy personal egos. Through the microcosm of Bollywood, this book discusses the ethics of filmmaking, film criticism and film marketing in India, and raises important political and social questions that would concern an increasingly discerning audience. With both humour and pathos, The Adventures of an Intrepid Film Critic gives readers an overview of contemporary Bollywood not attempted so far.

    I think this is one "unputdownable" book that I have read in a long long time. The adventures are interesting, the anecdotes quite funny, her observation skills-well, a sign of her meticulousness. And she talks about very important and pertinent issues. The funniest part of course was the interview with Rohit Shetty! It's really something different.
    If she writes non-fiction so well, I look forward to some fiction from her as well.
    Great job Anna! I've been following your reviews on the blog...

    Good for a while and a one time read. Gets repetitive after a point.

    It looks like Anna did spend her year well, but she reached very little conclusions OR is shying away from really putting her views forward which might not be favourable to 'stars' like SRK and Sallu moron. With very little references to films like R.A.1 and Ready, she conveniently skips commenting on the 'biggest' films of the year while talking about the same thing over and over again. like I am right now. See how I keep saying the same thing over and over again...and using 'over and over a...
