My name is Mallika Padmanabhan, and I am an undergraduate student double majoring in Communication and Creative Writing at the University of San Diego at California. During this upcoming year (my senior year), I will be developing a research project  involving the history of Indian cinema. In addition to exploring its evolution into a contemporary global platform of entertainment and South Asian culture, I will also analyze its reception in Hungary. During the past fifty years, India and Hungary have fostered strong political and economic relations; in more recent years this has carried over into the cinematic sphere.

This blog will serve as a place for me to archive primary research (photos, etc), secondary research (articles, reference books, etc) and potentially develop my paper in the months to come.

    Yo – sounds interesting. Did some perusing – here’s some pages I thought you might find interesting. Just random stuff – I bet you’ve already visited all these pages. Good luck!


    – “Indo-Hungarian Cultural & Educational Relations Historical Perspective”


    – Under the trivia section: “First Indian movie to feature a soundtrack performed by a full fledged symphony orchestra. The soundtrack was performed by Laslo Kovaks of Budapest Symphonic Orchestra, Hungary.”


    – Article on the filming of “Hum Dil De…” in Hungary

    Hi Mallika!
    Great idea! I’m totally going to make a blog now too. Lol, but mine will probably be my freakouts more than any substantive information. Haha. :]
