by Bhawana Somaaya

Bhawana Somaaya has been a film critic for 30 years and has contributed columns to publications like The Hindu, The Hindustan Times, The Pioneer and The Sunday Observer. She is the former editor of Screen and has authored nine books that include biographies of Hema Malini and Amitabh Bachchan. Lexicon is her tenth book and third on Bachchan after The Legend/99 and Bachchanalia/2009. She is the editor of Ticketplease.com, the Film Expert with 92.7 Big Fm and on the Advisory Panel of Censor Board of Film Certificate. Somaaya is currently working on three more books on cinema. Amitabh Bachchan has long since sublimated the language of cinema that is peculiar to Hindi films. He has worked its verbs, overwhelmed its adjectives, brought to life its nouns, subjugated its predicates and predicated its subjects. One realises that nearly every word in the English language could find its place in the cinematic vocabulary of Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh Lexicon is a compilation of selective words from the alphabets of the English language associated with different scenes from the actor's body of work รข€“ scenes where he made you cry, laugh, and all shook up. This colourful dictionary is a joyride to nostalgia for everyone who has grownup on a staple diet of Hindi films and Amitabh Bachchan. ISBN - 9788122311891.
