      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    The book I ordered is a collectors book with Bollywood posters. The condition of the book is not good with one corner damaged and other corner bent because of packaging. I have taken snapshots of the book Incase you require to see condition. Not happy.

    You'll Enjoy it!

    I ordered it through flipkart together with other books though i got this a bit late than what flipkart promises but it ain't matte sometimes seeing their good service.

    this book is nice collection of posters specially if you are a poster lover of hand-drawn posters more than digital ones. as they are classic and have retro feel in them. it has much much more old movies posters as compared to new ones also we should keep in mind that this book was published in 2008 so it contains poster up ...

    This is a great book for any film lover, some great print quality and text material, it puts Indian cinema in a rarely-seen clarity and context. For this price it's a steal!
